The U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington refused to sponsor a book- signing for an Atlanta man whose memoir includes the story of an uncle who said the Nazis forced him to make soap from victims at Auschwitz. Museum officials said a senior historian read Ben Hirsch’s “Hearing a Different Drummer” and questioned the accuracy of the soap-making passages.
