Abraham Klausner, a leading advocate for Holocaust survivors, has died. He was 92. Klausner, who had been diagnosed with Parkinson's disease, died Thursday at his Santa Fe home, said his wife, Judith. He was the first Jewish chaplain in the US Army to enter the Dachau concentration camp after it was liberated in 1945, his wife said. He collected and published lists of Holocaust survivors in volumes called Sharit ha-Platah, or Surviving Remnant. He filled the top floor of a Berlin museum with his work trying to reconnect children of the Holocaust to their families, she said.
