I re-read The National Review's editorial by Noam Schreiber.

He quotes you as saying most Holocaust survivors are meticulous in telling their stories.

This made me recall Walter Peltz, who visited colleges and high schools to share with students his experience.

Walter, who was born in Poland, survived Dachau and Auschwitz; to this day he walks with a limp from being severely beaten with a table leg for stealing a piece of bread.

Before he would share his experiences, he would note that he only talks about events and experiences that he witnessed with his own eyes--nothing second hand.
