I published the post Norman Salsitz, 86, Author Who Survived the Holocaust, Dies on 15 October 2006.
Two comments have recently been posted. The first endorses a new website about the Holocaust, the second questions the reliability of the website.
I wrote the post to honor the memory of Mr. Salsitz, a man who risked his life to save the lives of others, and was thus a volunteer of the highest order.
I am no expert on the Holocaust and have no opinion on the reliability of the website that was the subject of these comments, but I have recently learned of an opinion from someone who is an expert in this area, and so am taking this occasion to share that opinion with you.
I have an acquaintance who is the child of Survivors. Both his parents were born in Hungary. His father recently saw the movie Fateless. It is also known as “Sorstalanság.”
His father said the movie was the most accurate depiction he had ever seen of the grim reality of day-to-day life in a Nazi Death Camp.
His father speaks with authority on this matter, as he one of the few survivors of Auschwitz still alive today. He is 82, and has helped lead tours to Auschwitz for the last several years. He now lives in Montreal and is one of the few remaining Survivors from Montreal, though at one time were well over one hundred.
The first visit was the most memorable — he took his son to show him Auschwitz.
