Story Of Wasted Money
Regarding “‘Jews Are Still At Risk’” (June 21): The story of teaching the Holocaust is a sad story of wasted money. Those who were able to give testimony either were ignored or too traumatized to tell their story. Another factor was that those in charge to select what would be valuable many times lacked knowledge to distinguish between someone who was in Balzec, Sobibor, Majdanek and a labor camp. Then, of course, time eliminated those who had survived. In the religious community, there is very little effort made to teach or disseminate a survivor’s testimony, and some are openly hostile in teaching the history of the destruction of Jews by the Nazis and its allies.
