An Appeal for Yad Vashem

Download PDF for this date

John Ranz, executive secretary of the Survivors of Nazi Camps and Resistance Fighters, issued an appeal here for all those who lost relatives and friends during the Holocaust to provide testimony to Yad Vashem in order to counter such recent activities as the spate of books in this country and abroad claiming that the death of six million Jews is a myth and the resurgence of Nazi groups in the U.S. and overseas.

These events, Ranz said, “are evidence that Nazi activities were not terminated with the demise of Hitler and his cohorts. Moreover, the victims of the Holocaust deserve a symbolic burial among their own people. By filling out the Page of Testimony the victims can be brought to their final rest at the central archives of Yad Vashem.” Testimony forms, Ranz said, can be obtained by writing to his organization at 2747 Throop Avenue, Bronx, New York, 10469.
