Similarities between Terezin 

Thank you for publishing the insightful article by Nancy Werking Poling entitled "Can they be described as 'summer camps' for immigrant children?' As a tourist in 2008 I visited Terezin. What is happening in the way our administration is dealing with the complex and thorny issue of immigrant families has an alarming resemblance to the Terezin story. 

It appears that they/we have lost our historical and ethical consciousness of the painful and sacrificial paths our foreparents have walked in establishing themselves as American citizens.
