Jews want to remember and remind

This is not an "organized letter-writing-campaign by a Jewish group" as Jeffrey R. Colson was anticipating in his Tuesday letter titled "Nazi Holocaust not the only holocaust in the 20th century," which is a response to a Feb. 12 article of a picture of a girl reading names of people who died in the Holocaust with a caption under it saying, "This girl is reading names of people who died in the Holocaust."
