Jerome...

During the recent - restrainedly put - grossly inefficient threads on anti-Semitism in general and on dementia in particular, several other subjects were introduced to the forum, such as:

Simon Kreindler was asking for images of Lucca Ginsburg's paintings to be exhibited at the Czernowitz Art Gallery:

Irene Fishler was pointing to the magnificent world premiere of the high professional documentary "A Shtetl in the Caribbean", which took place in Amsterdam yesterday, attended by about 500 (!) people from all over the world. Filming locations over the past year were in Belarus, the US, Israel and Curacao, and in Ukraine in Czernowitz, Wiznitz and Mark Wiznitzer's father's birthplace of Vashkivtsi, as well as other parts of Bukovina:

By courtesy of Daniel Dubowy I released the posting on "The Nazi, the Painter and the Forgotten Story of the SS Road", which - including two drawings by Arnold Daghani never on display before - documents the missing conviction of the war criminals, who were responsible for the murder of substantial numbers of Jewish forced labourers, among those many from Bukovina:

No reaction whatsoever, but G. H. Bennett, Associate Professor in History at the University of Plymouth, and author of the book "The Nazi, the Painter and the Forgotten Story of the SS Road" wrote to me:

"Glad you found the article and the book useful. Daghani, Czernowitz and DGIV are compelling and tragic stories but hardly anyone seems interested."

It's hard to contradict! I know from the recorded site views, that there still is an interest of a silent majority in this topics, but again, this all was suffocated by the discussions on anti-Semitism in general and dementia in particular, which were in full swing.

I fully and unchangedly rely on your accurate and sensitive moderation - no further concretization is needed - but advise you to rule out unappropriate subjects as mentioned before. Temporarily - I have to admit - a bit frustrated, just my two cents and over to you again!

If you wish to continue the general discussion about anti-Semitism in NYC, LA, Melbourne, etc. then please feel free to do so privately or on a more appropriate forum. Further unrelated posts will be discarded.

I hesitate to be more specific, but maybe we should give some thought to better defining our 'area of interest'? What should it include and what should it not, or is it better to leave it ambiguous and in the hands of the moderators?
