I did not mean to imply, that the Holocaust was tabooed in the museum.
Florence sent us an account of what would be included in
the museum displays and the holocaust is definitely included.

Evidently there will be a section about Popovici,
we just do not know what will be included.
If we want a plate or a plaque, we shall need Josef Zissels consent.
