Auschwitz survivor dies in Scotland
Monday 24 August 2009
One of Scotland’s most prominent Jewish leaders, who survived seven nazi concentration camps, has died at the age of 84.
After the war, he moved from Hungary to Scotland in 1961 and was cantor of the Giffnock and Newlands synagogue.
He wrote two books and gave educational talks on his experiences, saying it was important for young people to recognise the level of cruelty inflicted upon the Jewish community and others who incurred the wrath of the nazis.
SNP West of Scotland MSP Stewart Maxwell said: “Ernest Levy was a remarkable and inspiring man held in great affection by all who knew him.
“He will be remembered for his educational work but also as a man of great faith and decency.
“Our thoughts and condolences are with his family and many friends at this sad time.”
