The League mourned the passing of former South African President Nelson Mandela, the courageous leader who dedicated his life to ending apartheid and building a free, multiracial and democratic South Africa. ADL National Director Abraham Foxman said that Mandela will be "long remembered as one of the greatest figures of his generation and one of the most inspirational and effective freedom-fighting figures in modern history."
ADL praised Bill Bratton's “strong record of success, everywhere he has worked” and said it looked forward to continuing the close relationship it has maintained through his previous tenures in Boston, New York and Los Angeles.
“His recent attempts to establish a neo-Nazi group in Europe are only a continuation of his four-decade-long crusade to spread his hateful racist ideology in the US and around the world.”

"The Book Thief," based on the popular 2005 novel by Markus Zusak, is an important new contribution to the Holocaust film genre, spurring popular awareness of the nature of the Holocaust, the role of rescuers, forms of resistance and contemporary manifestations of anti-Semitism.
