Website note: Abraham Foxman, wealthy and controversial chief of the Anti Defamation League, likes to refer to himself as a "Holocaust survivor." As a biography on this website shows, he was not even born when Hitler invaded his native Poland, and he was looked after by Polish Catholics throughout the war; his parents also "survived".

Author, "Never Again? The Threat of the New Anti-Semitism," foreword by Elie Wiesel ($24.95, 304 pages).
