Mr. Kowalski: Thank you for calling to my attention that information about birthplace of Szymon Wiesenthal was incorrect - not icorrect . My failing memoryMessage 1 of 4 , Nov 30, 2002View SourceMr. Kowalski:
Thank you for calling to my attention that information about birthplace of Szymon Wiesenthal was "incorrect" - not "icorrect". My failing memory due to advanced age is a justified excuse. I could checked it before writing, same as you your letter before sending. But nobody is perfect.
I couldn't find Wiesenthal's CV. Finally I checked Buczacz and I found there that Wiesenthal was born there, same as parents of Sigmund Freud. The world is small. During this research I found an interesting historical paper indicating that Wiesenthal's past was not perfect, as I already heard it many years ago in Vienna. I'm enclosing this paper which maybe of interest to you.
What puzzles me, why your messages are followed with a long tail of supportive material? You should know that such messages block smaller e-mail stations.
My policy is to send with my letters also letters which I'm replying, so that the recipient will know what I'm talking about. If I remember I try to cut the previous to last letter correspondence, but I not always remember. Since you were soviet prisoner in Czortkow, I assume that you're also not a "spring chicken", so you should experience similar acting, so I wonder why are you so surprised ? On the other hand I never received complaint on this subject except from APAP where most important was that the letters were no longer than 8K, which nobody could explain how to calculate, until I found out myself.
Your incformation about Simon Wiesenthal is icorrect. He was born and attended HS in Buczacz. Read his book "Simon Wiesenthal, niewygodny swiadek historii" published 1993 in Warsaw.
I know Czortkow reasonably well. I was the Soviet prisoner in its prison
What puzzles me, why your messages are followed with a long tail of supportive material? You should know that such messages block smaller e-mail stations. I think for some people there is a purpose in it.
