Preserving the legacy of the Holocaust as victims and perpetrators age

Today, Laszlo Csatary, a 98-year-old Hungarian Nazi war crimes suspect, died in a hospital in Hungary while awaiting trial. Csatary had been accused of sending nearly 16,000 Jews to death camps during World War II. His death raises questions about how to preserve the legacy of the Holocaust and ensure vindication for survivors. Rabbi Abraham Cooper, associate dean of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, tells us about Laszlo Csatary and what the Center is doing to keep the legacy of the Holocaust alive. (Photo: AP Images).
