Dan Kurzman received his usual collection of clippings in the mail from his brother-in-law several years ago. In the envelope was a newspaper article about four clergymen (a Jew, a Catholic and two Protestants) who had heroically sacrificed their lives for the sake of American soldiers on a torpedoed troop ship in the north Atlantic in the winter of 1943.
