Students who went to a Chapman University lecture hall Thursday afternoon to hear a Holocaust survivor speak were quickly set straight. "Survivors survive car accidents and fires," Leopold Page told his audience. "We survived a cataclysm of human history. We are witnesses to the truth." Those expecting an hour of grisly accounts about life under the Nazis in Poland's Krakow ghetto were also in for a surprise.

Leopold "Paul" Page, a Holocaust survivor whose unremitting determination to honor the German businessman who saved his life and those of 1,200 other Jews during World War II inspired the book and epic film "Schindler's List," has died. A retired Beverly Hills retailer, Page died Friday at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. He was 87. Page's achievement boils down to this: He had a story to tell, and Thomas Keneally needed a briefcase.

Leopold Page, the Beverly Hills luggage salesman and Holocaust survivor who spent 40 years urging writers and filmmakers to tell the story of Oskar Schindler's list, will speak about his experiences Friday at Kol Tikvah. His remarks will be part of a regular worship service at the Reform synagogue, located at 20400 Ventura Blvd. "The airing of 'Schindler's List' [on NBC] stirred up a lot of interest in the local community," said temple member Florence Klatzko, who helped arrange the appearance.

Leopold Page survived the Holocaust, but only because his name was included on a list drawn up by Oskar Schindler. Page never forgot his benefactor, and took on the mission of bringing Schindler and his now-famous list to the attention of the world. As part of Page's commitment to spread the story of Schindler's compassion and heroism, he contacted author Thomas Keneally.

Every year they are fewer, the survivors who saw and felt and smelled the Holocaust. Even the youngest are in their 50s now, and to the oldest, time is doing what Hitler could not. To preserve their stories, as indelible as the death-camp ID numbers tattooed on their forearms, a new book pays tribute to 92 of them. "The Triumphant Spirit" (Triumphant Spirit Publishing), created by Denver-based photographer Nick Del Calzo, tells their tales in striking portraits and carefully chosen words.

How a journalist, how an editor could also be a brilliant poet ... is a source of astonishment -- and of gratitude. Nobel laureate Elie Wiesel on "Poems From the Rubio" by Herb Brin * Herb Brin, poet, crusader and newsman who owned and operated the now-defunct Los Angeles Jewish newspaper Heritage from 1954 until he closed it in 2001, has died. He was 87. Brin died last Thursday of congestive heart failure at the Jewish Home for the Aging in Reseda, said his son, Daniel Brin.
