Attias’ Resting Place Is Jewish Honor

July 10, 2014

In the obituary for Benzion “Nick” Attias (“Belated Goodbye,” June 27) , it is stated that “his admiration for the soldiers who liberated the Jews from the Nazis inspired Attias’ choice to be buried in the Garrison Forest Veterans Cemetery in Owings Mills, instead of a Jewish cemetery.” It should be noted that he was interred in the separate consecrated Jewish section of Garrison Forest Veterans Cemetery, a benefit to which he was entitled as a veteran.
