Dear fellow Czernowitzers,
I fully agree with Hardy. I am against any change of the 19,600 figure.
With all due respect to Radu Ioanid, I checked again the figure with Fred
Schneider, before my most recent interview by the Yad Vashem team. I came
to the conclusion that the 19,600 figure is the most reliable among the
various versions floating around.
