New York, NY, October 29, 2010 … The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) expressed its deepest condolences to the president and people of Argentina on the death of Nestor Kirchner, the country's former president and a great Argentinean leader.

"The Anti-Defamation League will always remember his outreach to the Argentinean Jewish community and responsiveness to Jewish community concerns in Argentina and elsewhere in Latin America. He was a friend of the Jewish People."
