Re: Atina Grossmann: Regarding Eric Lichtblau’s News Analysis, “Surviving the Nazis, Only to be Jailed by America”

As the director of the International Tracing Service or ITS in Bad Arolsen, Germany, the institution with the most records of the DPs themselves as well as of the agencies (UNRRA and IRO) in charge of what was then called the "care and maintenance" of Displaced Persons, I would like to support the concerns expressed by Atina Grossmann and Herbert Marcuse and further addressed by Abraham Peck about the misrepresentation of the Jewish DP experience by the journalist Eric Lichtblau.
