Non-Jews also died in Holocaust

Regarding the Arts page article "Israelis and Germans Confront Painful Past," Aug. 18: A line in the review states, "Remember the old man, the little child, the victim ... 6 million Jews. Remember and do not forget it."

Indeed Jews all over the world have not forgotten the horrors of the Holocaust. Statutes, museums, and countless Hollywood films have been dedicated to the memory of the Jews who perished in the camps. What then have they forgotten? They have consistently and conveniently forgotten the 8 million others - the non-Jews - who perished in the camps. Consequently, millions of Jewish children throughout the world are raised to believe that only Jews died in the concentration camps. Thomas Donnelly, Port Hueneme, Calif.
