Letters to the Editor

Unforgotten story The article "Toughened 'Shanghailanders' reunite to celebrate life" in the April 19 Bulletin reminds me that I recently saw a powerful small exhibit on Shanghai and the Jews of China at the Jewish Museum in Sidney, Australia.

The exhibit was a compilation of testimonials, anecdotes, video footage and a collection of artifacts never shown before.

The re-creation of a coffee house where Jewish immigrants to Australia used to meet, as well as current interviews with some of these people, made a dramatic impression on me.

I thought your readers, particularly those attending the Rickshaw Reunion, might like to know that on the other side of the globe, their story has not been forgotten. JACQUELINE HACKEL

Prof lauded Congratulations to Professor John M. Steiner for receiving recognition for his work from German President Johannes Rau. I always felt that his teaching, here among us, did not receive enough recognition. Nor did his remarks, years ago, concerning the very real needs of survivors living here. ARNOLDINE BERLIN
