A children's book inspired by a since-discredited Holocaust story has been pulled by the publisher. Laurie Friedman's Angel Girl, based on Herman Rosenblat's tale of meeting his future wife at a concentration camp, had been released in the fall by the Lerner Publishing Group. Rosenblat acknowledged last weekend that he didn't meet his wife during the war. His own memoir was canceled. Adam Lerner, president and publisher of Lerner Publishing, said in a statement Tuesday the company had been misled by the Rosenblats. Friedman said in a statement that throughout the development of the book, the Rosenblats had reviewed the manuscript and given assurances of the authenticity of the details of their story.
