Slovakia is reconsidering whether it will mint a commemorative coin of children’s book author Ludo Ondrejov after an outcry that he participated in a wartime drive to remove Jews from their jobs and confiscate their property. According to Radio Free Europe, Ondrejov was given the Jewish-owned Steiner Bookshop when it was seized, and later dismissed the Steiners as employees.
