Poignant discovery
We read with interest the review “An unhappy revelation” (April 7) by Janice Weizman on the recently published book by Paul Glaser, “Dancing with the Enemy.” What the writer of the article failed to mention is the very poignant way in which Glaser found out about his Jewish ancestry, which is crucial to the whole story.

While on a business trip to Poland, he was persuaded by his colleagues to pay a visit to Auschwitz. While there, he noticed a suitcase with his family’s name on it. This triggered the search, which ultimately led him to write his book and discover his true identity. Glaser gave a presentation to the International Jewish Center in Brussels last year that made a lasting impression.
