I hope to hear of a follow up soon, but something tells me this will be buried and soon forgotten.
Sad. Very sad.

Ugh. As a lover of history, this makes me sick. Even the bad parts of history need to be preserved, to study and learn from and hopefully not be repeated.

WOW. Disgraceful.Are people that worried about possible backlash that they are willing to rewrite history?? When will people realize it is important to preserve the good, the bad and the ugly? Imagine if the detailed records from the Germans and the prisoners of camps had been destroyed in such a fashion.
