Date: Sun 4th Nov, 2018 | 13:39
"I have heard with great sorrow of the passing of Max Levitas, anti-fascist and defender of democracy and its core values.
Proud of his Irish and his Jewish roots, Max Levitas was a citizen of the world, and a person of immense courage and great humanity.
A veteran of the 'Battle of Cable Street' in London, he was a remarkable representative of a family that has made an extraordinary contribution to social justice and to national and international politics.
To his family and friends, Sabina and I send our deepest condolences."
