For Jose Siderman, 85, justice was delayed for two decades but at least it came in his lifetime. With an assist from courts in Los Angeles, he has triumphed over the forces of intolerance and anti-Semitism. Siderman's predicament began in 1976 when the "dirty war" in Argentina was in full swing; it was a reign of military terror that eventually claimed more than 10,000 lives. Siderman was arrested and held blindfolded for seven days for no other reason than being a Jew.
