“Herb was a national treasure. Here was a man who started out in his teenage years influenced by communism, who then saw the truth about that ideology and turned against the party.  He was one of the most indomitable fighters for the cause of freedom in modern American history… He had encyclopedic knowledge about totalitarian propaganda, whether it was Nazi or communist, and was one of the greatest practitioners and teachers of how to fight propagandistic falsehood.”
– John Lenczowski, IWP Founder and President
