  •     Having known Avi Weiss, this book was a real treat. This is a history of Avi's activism on so many issues. In hindsight, I realize that he was right to take on the nuns at Auschwitz, Reagan at Bitburg and a host of other people. May he live a long life and be well. This book is very inspiring.
