writer's block continued from page 10
saving the lives of countless Jews while
threatened by exposure within his own family, it
is also a testimony to the author's determination
to tell that story and to gain posthumous
recognition for his father-in-law's activities by
Yad Vashem as a `Righteous Gentile.' According
to Bob Reynolds, "Most of the books in print are
written from the point of view of survivors of the
Holocaust; there are very few books about the
resistance to Hitler and they're mostly written
about people in the aristocracy or the military.
My father-in-law was an `ordinary' person who
continued to look out for people who were being
persecuted under East German rule after 1945.
The Nazi culture of spying on one another
continued under the Soviets and people who
had participated in the resistance to the Nazis
were still at risk."
The journals and letters of Albrecht Tietze, along
with testimonials from those whose lives he
saved, tell the story of his actions during and
after World War II. It is a story of courage and
determination to `do the right thing'. Bob
Reynold's researches into that story, and his
efforts to place Albrecht Tietze's name on the
Wall of Remembrance at
Yad Vashem
and on
the memorial wall at the
Holocaust Museum
in
DC is also inspiring. "The biggest problem for
human kind is that people refuse to open their
minds. While we have people like my father
in- law, there still is a ray of hope that people
will do the right thing. The only action required
is to take note of the actions of people like him
and build on it . . . and it would be a much
better world."
Copies of A Call for Conscience can be obtained
for $15.95 from Robert Reynolds, 216 Point to
Point Square, Bel Air, MD 21015
