We will never forget your work "Schindler's List" which was viewed in 1994 by our youth group. It was compelling drama to open the many eyes to one of the greatest Holocaust films. May your memory be for a blessing.

Mr Lustig lived the life that he produced in the Holocaust and because of living that tragedy was able to contribute a clear and honest portrayal of what really happened. By helping to create such a movie its a reminder to all of us that such sa thing should never be alowed to happen again. To the family I offer my sincere condolences and pray that God continues to comfort the family.

Thank you for all that you have done in this lifetime. Bringing the story of the Holocaust, to those who had no idea how cruel and horrible that era in history was, hopefully opened many minds to what is happening now in our country. Rest in peace, Sir. With immense respect for both you and your family, Elizabeth R.
