To the editors:

In your edition published August 3, 1990, I read with great attention the remarkable letter that was written over the name/name withheld: "Fetishists of the Holocaust."

My heart goes out to this man who has so many problems. He is confused, and perceives himself as a loser; and he endeavors to reestablish his self respect by venting his spleen on/and berating those who would love him so much, if he only gave them the opportunity to do as much.

My advice? Square your shoulders Mr. Name Withheld; face the World with your head held high! You can yet make yourself a winner. Prove for all time that you are worthy of all your wonderful relatives who were put to death in the holocaust!
