Dear Friends:

Here is our response from Anna Lenchovska and Josef Zissels, below.
I will be on vacation and out of touch beginning tomorrow, so I hope
others can carry the torch on this project. It's gratifying to know
that the museum exhibit WILL include the holocaust period, and not
stop with the Soviet occupation and deportations. Ms. Lenchovska
asks for a delegate to visit Czernowitz this summer personally to
discuss the exhibit. This would be a most welcome meeting, so I ask
whether there is someone among us with plans to visit Czernowitz and
who is willing to take the time to discuss the exhibition?

I think Anna Lenchovska is discussing a collaborative effort, and I
would hope that our group is now willing to work with a spirit of

Best wishes,
