Euro-Asian Jewish Congress mourns the death of Sir Ben Helfgott

The leaders of the Euro-Asian Jewish Congress are grieving the passing of the Claims Conference board member Sir Ben Helfgott. His remarkable life story, from surviving the Holocaust to becoming an Olympian and champion weightlifter, serves as a great inspiration to us all. As a public figure, he was a true role model, as his dedication to promoting Holocaust education has left an indelible mark on the world.

Our heartfelt condolences, thoughts, and prayers are with the family during this difficult time.

May his memory be a blessing.

Baruch Dayan Ha’Emet.
