Sick and tired of Holocaust stories. Same thing happened to so many different races including Armenians but they are not harping on it for ever. Holocaust is still happing in Africa and other countires.

Dear Ms. Patron,
Being married to an Israeli and having two daughters who are by def. first generation American Israeli, I take interests in your columns.

As unbelievable as it might be, the comment by some being tired of Holocaust stories may seem offensive but does reflect many attitudes I hear regarding such.

Being a native born American with a percentage of Native American Indian in me from both sides of the family, I would suggest that, perhaps, considering an article to address other genocidal events which have occured over the course of human history. Yes, a major undertaking I know but seem that the readership at large, beyond the Jewish community, might be appreciative.

From the Native American populations throughout the Americas, to events in Africa, Armenia, E. Timor and the slaughter of Timorese with the nod of Gerald Ford, and on down the line.

There is the perception that Jews only care about one genocidal event and perhaps and article which address others would be an respectful to those who have experience sim. events in their own history.

From the USA I feel I must say that my family and millions of others were never heard from.

We were Polands heros, WW1 front line that reclaimed Poland in 1920. We are "Poland's forgotten victims".

I have been denied placing our loved ones stories in the United States Holocaust Musuems, being told we must be 1.) victims of Nazi's 2.) Jewish. My family were victims of "Stalin" and are "Roman Catholic".

With "communist" take over of Poland, the country was silenced to this part of history. In 1989 and Poland at last regainning freedom we can now speak out. Please don't try to silence the victims once more.

Yes, May 1st is a special day that I shall light a candle in remembrance of our lost loved ones. Family deported to Siberia on Feb. 10, 1940 on "Stalin's" orders. Three family members in "Katyn".
