Publication of disputed Holocaust memoir canceled

The publisher of a disputed Holocaust memoir is canceling publication of the book. Berkley Books issued a statement Saturday saying it is canceling publication of "Angel at the Fence" after receiving new information from the agent of author Herman Rosenblat. The statement did not elaborate. Rosenblat's book is based on his well-publicized story - embraced by Oprah Winfrey among others - of how he met his future wife, Roma Radzicki, on opposite sides of a barbed-wire fence at a Nazi concentration camp. Scholars have questioned whether such an encounter could have happened. Berkley says it will demand that Rosenblat and his agent return all money that they have received for the work.
