My name is Jacob Labendz and I'm the director of the Center for Judaic
and Holocaust Studies at Youngstown State University in Ohio. I'm
preparing an annotated translation for publication and am seeking as
much information as I can find about the author. His name was
Frederich Fried but he also went by Friedrich and Bedrich. Mr. Fried
was active in B'nai B'rith in interwar Czechoslovakia and then led the
Czechoslovak Jewish Representative Committee affiliated with the World
Jewish Congress in NYC during the war. It appears that he was born in
Smichov (i.e., Prague) in 1904. Based upon the information available
to me, it appears that he passed away in or around 1969.
I would be very grateful for any information that you could share.
