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.

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

It is indeed a shame that Eric Lichtblau so badly interpreted the post-liberation lives of Holocaust survivors in the American Zone of Germany. As both Harold Marcuse and Atina Grossmann point out in their respective posts, Lichtblau, on the basis of either poor scholarship or an effort to immediately sensationalize the remainder of his book, provides misinformation and a series of half-truths regarding both the situation of survivors in the various Displaced Persons camps and the attitude and actions of the American military toward those Jews under its authority.
