With Samuel Pisar, a deep, just and precious voice died out.

The voice of one of the youngest survivors of the death camps, deported to thirteen, released to sixteen, winner of what he himself had baptized "his fierce duel with destiny".
The voice of the Memory of the Shoah, which he never ceased to make heard until the last days of his existence, always anxious to tell the generations who followed him that "their world could collapse", as his, anxious to fight barbarism to its last breath.

Samuel Pisar was also the writer, the author of the Blood of Hope, bearer of eternal optimism, and who, beyond the horrors, also celebrated life magnificently.
He was the polyglot, the intellectual, Kennedy’s advisor, against whom Raymond Aron would fight.

He was a human advocate and a man of peace. The best tribute we can pay to him is to continue the battles he fought tirelessly.

I extend my condolences to his family and loved ones.
