A REAL SIMCHAH
I refer to your “Simchah of the Week” section, which describes weddings and barmitzvahs.
I was interested to hear from a boy in the US who, as part of a “mitzvah project” before his barmitzvah, contacted Yad Vashem and focused on a young person who perished in the Shoah.
About 10 years ago, I completed 20 forms for Yad Vashem, giving details of members of my family who perished and also of some school friends who perished. The young American chap saw that the form for Stanislaw Offen, who perished, was completed and signed by me. He managed to track me down and spoke to me on the phone from the US.
Now, that’s what I call a worthy deed — to recall a young man who perished in the Shoah. Ron Leason Abercorn Place, London NW8
