Yes by all means let no holocaust victim be forgotten! But for the sake
of historical accuracy be sure when you list them to either include only
information that you are certain is true, or if your making assumptions
please label them as such. I found that in the pages of testimony >from
my families shtetl many people were listed as having died in Treblinka,
but this very, very likely only an assumption by the person who listed
them, and not something for which there was any evidence. There are a
number of other possibilities as where else and how else many of these
people were murdered other than at Treblinka. Also I found one prominent
individual >from the town who was listed as having died in Treblinka but
I know for a fact that he was arrested by the Soviets in 1940 and died
in Siberia. He was not a Nazi holocaust victim at all. Keep in mind a
need for truth and accuracy.
