What Max Glauben waited decades to obtain, thieves took in a matter of minutes.
A sentencing hearing for an 83-year-old nun and two other Catholic peace activists was delayed Tuesday after the federal courthouse in Knoxville shut down because of snow.
Holocaust survivor and historian Randolph L. Braham said Sunday he is returning a high state award to Hungary to protest what he says are government efforts to rewrite history and exonerate the country from its role in the Holocaust.
When Elie Wiesel emerged from quintuple heart-bypass surgery, still wired to monitors, he immediately started writing a book about the ordeal — "in my head." In French.

The Hudson River extends like the sun from the back of Toni Morrison's house, illuminated and infinite, undimmed by an unseasonably drab spring afternoon.
When Elie Wiesel speaks, people listen. He speaks softly and chooses his words carefully. In 1986, when this survivor of Hitler's death camp at Buchenwald was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, he was cited as a "messenger to mankind" whose message has always been one of peace and human dignity.
President Obama waxed eloquent at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington this week, speaking of the men and women commemorated there as "a testament to the endurance and the strength of the human spirit." He told how his great uncle, an American soldier, was stunned by what he saw at the liberation of the death camp at Buchenwald.
Surrounded by the haunting memories of the Holocaust, a solemn President Obama on Monday announced a new crackdown on Iran and Syria and said the world never again must allow hatred to take root into the "madness" of mass atrocities.
President Obama toured the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum Monday and called it a reminder that nations too often do not do enough to prevent atrocities, even as his host challenged him to do more about the killing of civilians in Syria and the threat posed by Iran.
I'm of two minds about "In Darkness," a film about a Polish sewer worker who shelters a group of Jews from the Lvov ghetto during the last days of the Nazi occupation in 1943. Based on a 1991 nonfiction book by Robert Marshall, the film — an Oscar nominee for best foreign film — places its emphasis on a sliver of feel-good anecdote that threatens to diminish the larger history it taps.
Bil Keane, the cartoonist whose "Family Circus" mixed humor with traditional family values, entertaining readers for a half-century, died Tuesday. He was 89.
On a night he was honored for his way with words, Keith Richards was clearly winging it.
In 24 hours, Republicans descend on Florida en masse for a grand old party for the Grand Old Party. On Thursday, the mighty eight presidential hopefuls meet once again for another debate, this one hosted by Fox News and the Florida Republican Party, staged in Orlando. That's just the opening act, though.
The Black Cat arrived in the District shortly after President Clinton started his first term, and stuck around long after he left the White House. As far as D.C. venues go, you could say it's unimpeachable - and tough. The club was founded with cash from Dave Grohl, who was between Nirvana and the Foo Fighters, and now opens its door every night to a different U Street than the one of 1993, when the best parts of the corridor were but low-rent shadows of a Jazz Age past. The Black Cat stuck it out though, moving only once - down the block.
Besides protesting the participation of top Hungarian officials at a ceremony honoring a famous writer who was also a Nazi sympathizer, Wiesel said at the time that he was rejecting the award also because "Horthy, who sent 500,000 Jews to Auschwitz in 1944, is becoming a heroic figure again in his country."
