Thirteen days until New Year's Eve and Bill Kalmenson is checking airline flight schedules. To Tonga. To Peru. He wants adventure. He wants beautiful scenery. Mostly, though, he wants out of L.A. As Dec. 31 looms, Kalmenson has no plans and no date. "It's bad enough when Saturday night is coming at you--that's a train that runs over me every week," mused Kalmenson, a 43-year-old film writer and director.

Eugene Zinn was about an hour into a PBS Holocaust documentary in January when he heard a familiar voice speaking his native Slovak tongue. Eighty years old with his eyesight nearly gone, Zinn pressed his face closer to the television screen in his West Hills den. There, clad in an argyle sweater and walking around the restored Auschwitz concentration camp in Poland, was Otto Pressburger, a man for whom Zinn had been searching for much of his life. Zinn knew he needed to find Pressburger.

Simon Wiesenthal, who survived a dozen concentration camps, then spent his life bringing Nazi war criminals to justice and searing the Holocaust into the conscience of the world, died Tuesday. He was 96. Wiesenthal died peacefully in his sleep at his home in Vienna, said Rabbi Marvin Hier, dean and founder of the Simon Wiesenthal Center in Los Angeles. He had been in declining health since the death of his wife, Cyla, in November 2003.
