Just read this obituary online about Holocaust survivor Joseph Harmatz. Don't believe I have ever heard of the incident that is described in his bio. He was part of a group that tried to poison thousands of Nazis in a P.O.W. camp shortly after the end of the war in Europe. Most interesting.

R.I.P. Mr. Harmatz

Will read that later. Getting ready to eat dinner. But neither Colin Hotham or I had heard about that. He is here with me in Maryland, for we just finished our WWII reunion and are now vacationing with two other attendees. Thanks for the interesting post!

There is an effort underway to award former OSS agents the Congressional Gold Medal, let's hope they get it.
