Menachem Rosensaft’s Opinion piece, “Extending The Holocaust Legacy” (April 17), caused me to reflect on my childhood, which led to my serving as head librarian at Martef Hashoah.
I was born in Transylvania and both parents
and older brother are survivors, each with a story. When we fled Communism, we
were first headed to Haifa via Italy with HIAS assistance. But at the last
minute, an uncle, a Holocaust survivor, was found in the U.S., and he agreed to
sponsor us. So I wound up in America, for most of my life, until I made
aliyah, and commenced a new career in Holocaust studies.

I have always enjoyed another point of view, which I was able to get from The
Jewish Week. However, with the latest online Opinion essay, Edith Everett’s “Why the Iran Deal Makes
Sense,” you have sunken to a new low in critical thinking and in your valuation
of supporting Israel.
