Heart of a Lion, Courage of a Warrior

When someone comes along and tells his story better than you ever could, you don't try to tell it for him. Especially when he's a holocaust survivor. Especially when he's 103 years old. 103! Leopond Engleitner is the world's oldest known male holocaust survivor. He's one of our people - one of Jehovah's Witnesses.

At 103, he still travels widely. Here, he's on the California leg of his "Unbroken Will" tour. He's a "happy boy" who has "no time to die." And, in a nod to Governor Schwartzenegger's Terminator days, he concludes with the promise "I'll be back!" A man with the heart of a lion and the courage of a warrior, says the reporter:[email protected]

You can search the internet and find a lot on this fellow. The Watchtower magazine carried his experiences in their 5/1/05 issue. And he has a website of his own.

[Edit 2/23/17] Englieghtner died. He was 107 years old. But California should not relax. He will be back. It will just have to be in the new system.

Awake In Rochester


I don't have much time. I'm on a library computer.

What in the world is going on in our capital? It's hard to know who is in change of NY these days.

you're a survivor, Awake. Good to hear from you. As to the Gov, he started out with such high approval, but he's in an impossible situation. Almost makes one wonder if Spitzer, the Sherriff of Wall Street, could have arrested enough scoundrels to have prevented today's financial mess.
