WASHINGTON - Rep. Tom Lantos of California, the only Holocaust survivor to serve in Congress, has died, his spokeswoman said Monday.

<snip>

An American by choice
The timing of the diagnosis was a particular blow because Lantos had assumed his committee chairmanship just a year earlier, when Democrats retook control of Congress. He said then that in a sense his whole life had been a preparation for the job - and it was.

Lantos was a exceptional human being--a real mensch. I was living in Palo Alto when he was first elected (it was a close and rather ugly election). Though imperfect (as we all are), he became one of the rare members of Congress who consistently conveyed moral authority. It's a loss for the country.
