It was a German camp

“Hunting, hiding, finding – remembering” (March 20) is an absolutely fascinating recollection of Mr. Svoray’s experiences and accomplishments, which are quite laudable.

Only one thing needs clarification. It is the sentence, “I found a cache of coins inside Majdanek, another Polish concentration camp.” That should have been written as “another concentration camp in occupied Poland.”

If left as it is, some uninformed readers (and, make no mistake, there are thousands of people quite uninformed about WWII history) would get the historically incorrect impression that these horrific camps were Polish, not German. And it would be a very bad thing if even one person attributed the design, creation, and control of those camps to anyone but the blood-stained Germans.
