Gary Rosenblatt’s column on Yom HaShoah raises important questions about the future of Holocaust commemoration (“Yom HaShoah: Finding A Way To Remember,” April 9). If anything, there is a growing observance and awareness in Jewish and non-Jewish communities alike, and in the number of public observances (including in state capitals, military bases, universities, and government agencies) around the country.

 I worry that with each passing year in this country, Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day, is quietly and gradually becoming obsolete.

You don’t need an actuary to know that the number of survivors of the Holocaust, which took place between 65 and 71 years ago, is declining rapidly, and thus the authentic voices of those who lived through the horrors are diminished every day.

Gary Rosenblatt is spot-on in referring to “politicians in Jerusalem and Washington desperately seeking a means of escape from the S.S Oslo, the outdated, ill-fated peace process that is still taking in water, doomed to go under” (“Averting Disaster In U.S.-Israeli Relations,” March 19).

Assessing the alarmingly tense relationship at the moment between Washington and Jerusalem, I'm reminded of one of my favorite Chelm stories.

It's the one about the man walking down the street one night when he approaches his friend, who is positioned under a bright street lamp and searching for something on the ground.
