Anna Rosmus visited the burial site of the Kirchham concentration camp (northeastern Bavaria), where she participated in the dedication of a memorial marker to the United States soldiers who liberated the inmates. Keynote speaker was the US-General Stanley Eric Reinhart, Jr., whose father commanded the liberating 65th Infantry Division in 1945. Among the guests of honor were several U.S. veterans decorated by the State of Israel.


Congratulations to Alice Shalvi, whose many accomplishments were detailed in a feature story in the Haaretz weekend magazine on July 8, 2011. The article, by Aviva Lori, is entitled "A soldier for sexual equality." It begins: "As long as the army has such a central influence over life in this country and Orthodoxy is dominant, asserts Prof. Alice Shalvi, there won't be equality between the sexes. Despite this, at 85, the Israel Prize laureate is still energetically working toward achieving that lofty objective."


Congratulations to Rosemarie Reed, who has completed her documentary film of Ravensbrück and Sachsenhausen, Where Birds Don't Sing. For more information, see http://www.filmsforthought.com/.


Congratulations to Karin Doerr, who has been appointed to the Academic Council of the Canadian Institute for the Study of Antisemitism. For more information, see http://web.me.com/cisa/CISA/Academic_Council.html.
