1982 my father, Joseph Gottfried, gave a speech to the West Palm Beach
Rotary Club about propaganda. His friend and colleague, who was there
at the time, recently forwarded a copy of the speech to my mother,
saying it seemed prophetic. I've attached it here. JG-Propaganda ]

an interesting video about this history on YouTube. The Other History

college level looks like! Ignorance is Not Bliss

Blood into that group. (Whether as a sub-committee or what-not

will be a blood drive every 8 weeks starting from the first couple of weeks of
school. Once they are scheduled you'll be able to find them on the school calendar.

Awareness - On
3/4/2010 I received an email from my aunt with details about a Polish
Catholic woman who saved thousands of Jewish children from death during
the Holocaust. Given that my parents are survivors, I tend to think I
am well informed, but I had not heard of her, but after some research I
discovered that the Irena Sender story, as portrayed in the email was
true. Rather than forward the email, which would, I'm sure, be deleted
by most, I'm posting a link to the story here, where it will remain
part of my web pages.
If you encounter a dead
link please let
me know so I can fix it-I know VERY few will make it this far down,
but, one of the hosts I have used for years recently closed its
servers. It is highly likely there are dead links. Please help me by
letting me know.
