Mr. Chester, and fellow readers. I am sorry if I've hurt your national pride but facts are facts. I in no way condemned the entire Jewish population of Argentina during that period. Large or small, it is still a fact.
There is much literature on the subject. For example,
It means that for some, no matter how much we look, there are lives that have been wiped out. Cemeteries destroyed, names lost in mass graves, names lost to history. That was the purpose of my comment. We should understand that as much work as we do on our ancestry, there will always be spaces that cannot be filled.
I'm sorry that this upset you and maybe others. But unless you can show me these are false stories, I continue to say that we must recognize things that were done in our culture that weren't always perfect. Despite our flaws, we still stand proudly and in unity with our people.
