I disagree with Larry Gaum.  While the Jewish leader of the area is dead and cannot defend himself, I personally think it was a very good investigative reporting and probably correct.  It is why the father stopped his search.  There is no other reasonable explanation.  Jews, like everyone else, have good, bad and partially good or partially bad people.  That is human nature.  "What would you have done".  That is always in my mind when I read horrific deeds.  We are not morally superior in any greater number than other humans. Perhaps instead of focusing on "money grabbing" we should focus on "life saving".  Whose life?  The accused.  I read stories of early Israeli immigrants who survived the Shoal being killed because they were recognized as fellows who worked with t he Nazi's to survive a few months or years or forever.
