God Bless Mr. Steinberg for his altruism and valiant fight against an extremely repugnant pock mark on history. A light has been extinguished, but a new one will be lit in his ethereal memory and soul. God Bless his family, and may others continue the fight against the atrocities commited against the Jewish people.
