May his family be comforted among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem and say Amen.

For those who don't know about the philanthropic Strauss family read about the memorial in La Mulata. Condolences to the family, the community has lost a special man.

I have not been up past the memorial in several months, but the last time I was there, it was a disgrace. The community has let it become an overgrown jungle. We mentioned at the time that not to care for it is to honor someone, then insult him. I certainly hope someone takes the lead and organizes a group to make the place nice again. I don't have the time or authority to organize this, but I certainly would take time to help. Herman Strauss was a great man. Sosua lost an icon.

Now there is a memorial park at Playa Alicia and this other is forgotten. I believe it was a memorial to the suffering of kristallnacht. Their decision to let it go.
