A Jewish group removed a Holocaust survivor from its list of recommended speakers after experts said they found inaccuracies in her wartime accounts. Deli Strummer, 78, has said she spent nine months in Auschwitz, but records suggest that if she was there, it was for no longer than eight days. Strummer later acknowledged making “innocent errors,” but remained adamant about the truthfulness of her accounts.
