I saw him give a talk at a small Christian church, maybe 10 years ago. It was an interesting talk that covered many topics. There were two of survivors there, from the same camp that he was in, and it was moving to see them connect with one another.

One thing that troubled me, was that he listed a number of conflicts in modern history, but left out the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. From his talk, it seemed to me that he viewed that conflict differently, and not with the humanity that he was known for.
