|Beloved Holocaust Survivor Solomon Radasky (whose tattooed arm is pictured above) died at age 92 on August 4, 2002. His defining
characteristic was courage. He was a hero to his children and grandchildren. He faced the worst
and the best in life. His strength, wit and wisdom saw him through. Devoted to his religion he
put on tefillin the morning before he died. Surrounded by his family his last decision was that
he no longer needed to be a survivor.|
