“Shalom Aleichem, Yidden. Ihr zint frei!”

The late rabbi HERSCHEL SCHACTER, to survivors at the Buchenwald concentration camp on April 11, 1945; Schachter was detached to General George Patton’s Third Army.

"Peace be upon you, Jews.  You are free!"

Rabbi Schachter, a modern Orthodox rabbi, “would remain at Buchenwald for months, tending to survivors, leading religious services in a former Nazi recreation hall and eventually helping to resettle thousands of Jews.”

He died last Thursday at the age of 95.
