A statue honoring former U.S. lawmaker and Holocaust survivor Tom Lantos was unveiled in Budapest, Hungary on Thursday.

The Hungarian-born Lantos, who served a Democrat from California in the House of Representatives from 1981 until his death in 2008, was the only Holocaust survivor to ever sit in Congress. He was widely known for his advocacy of democracy, fighting anti-Semitism and standing up for human rights around the world, establishing the bipartisan Congressional Human Rights Caucus in 1983.
