Dear Emil:

Please read carefully the letter from Ms. Lenchovska. She makes a
distinction between the "second part" (the deportations of May 1941)
and the "third part" (the Holocaust). To me, both "parts" were
deplorable events.

We still need to ask for clarification of what is meant by "begin of
Holocaust", which, according now to Mr. Zissels, will be included in
the Museum. Ms. Lenchovska does not say that museum coverage will
end with the deportations.

>This they will not have. Too nasty.

It's preliminary and perhaps in accurate to jump to conclusions about
motives, when we are not even clear about what is meant by several
statements in the email of Ms. Lenchovska.

I do appreciate hearing your opinion, but I also agree with Hardy
that we can not control where museums are placed. But I can tell you
that there have been discussions about plans to develop a museum of
Jewish history, with an eye toward promoting tolerance and reducing
anti-semitism, in the Great Temple of Radauti. I hope we can join
together to determine the facts before promoting a course of action.
Of course, any list member can act as they please, but we could work
better from a position of strength if we act with unity.
