    Contrary to inuendos put forth in this article, many Hassidic Rebbes perished with their followers in the Shoah. The Bluzhover and Klausenburger Rebbes were among those who survived the Death Camps and went on to re-establish Jewish continuity after the Second World War . Also untrue is the article's claim that studies of the Shoah are new to the Chassidic or Hareidi worlds. "Hasidic Tales of the Holocaust" (1982) and "Responsa From The Holocaust" (1983) appear among the religeous literature dealing with this period. Jews of every orientaion, religeous and otherwise, passed through this ordeal, and it seems time that we honour our collective trauma by honouring one another with true Ahavat Yisroel. Perhaps, when we do so, the whole world will acknowledge and respect all that our people has endured and survived.
