Thanks to Miranda Neubauer for this citation. And apologies for not
posting it sooner. The opinion piece appeared in the Jan. 3, 2014,
Sunday NY Times.

"Laupheim, a small town in southern Germany, once boasted a large
Jewish community and named a prominent street after one of its Jewish
sons: Carl Laemmle, who went on to found Universal Studios. But all of
that changed in the 1930s. By 1992, when I started fifth grade,
Laemmle's name had long since been removed >from the map, and my mother
and I were the only Jews in town."
