Amen. Also great contributers to art and architecture, such as Chagall and Frank Gehry and literature - so many.

Thanks for presenting this gallery Jola. I am living in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia now and I don't quite comprehend anti-Semitism displayed by some people including individuals in high places. The Jews did nothing other than staying unique and contributing to the advancement of the world in terms of science and technology. There was a young Jewish father walking with his two kids abused by football players on a bus. They snatched his headwear through the bus window and when he tried to get it back was punched before his terrified kids. The young players even shouted at him to go to the Nazis. Two months after a young Jewish man on the train on his way to Melbourne was abused by a group of youths. His hat was taken off his head and he was slapped with a rolled newspaper. Australia in reality is an intolerant country owing largely to its Anglo-Saxon heritage. It makes me sick to my stomach to know there are still people who despite of their education are still morally ignorant. Bravo to you! Just displaying these photos alone shows a lot of courage.
