His opponents became frustrated with their attempts to oust him and Dr. Weiss was the son-in-law of one of those opponents. His funeral was attended by 200,000 mourners.

In 1944, at the age of 55 years old, Samuel was alive when on December 16th, The Battle of the Bulge began in the Ardennes forest on the Western Front.
