Roosevelt: Greatest American Friend Of The Jewish People

Dr. Rafael Medoff's articles contain half-truths, distortions and reflect out-and-out hatred for FDR ("Could Europe's Jews Have Been Rescued?" front page essay, Sept. 9; "While Six Million Lived," front page essay, Sept. 16).

Do The Right Thing
