"You website on André is very interesting! Congratulations." - Matthew Cobb, http://www.elevendaysinaugust.com

 

12/9/2014 Dear Diana -

The many years you have already given to this endeavor - along with the masterful presentation materials you have assembled -

identify you as a stalwart in the effort to add positive material to ...the otherwise dark mainstream Narrative.

Fraternally,

Sister Rose Thiering, see her letter below: also Denise Lorach, Charles Joineau, Sir Martin Gilbert, more....

"Your work is very important and compelling. I send my best wishes and fervent hope that you are able to find a publisher that will measure up your scholarly contribution.

Sincerely yours,

Carmen Robert Croce, Director, Saint Joseph's University Press

"Last weekend I spent some time with your manuscript -- found it quite absorbing and very well prepared. It's a valuable document, not to mention a good read -- you obviously did an immense amount of work on it.

I'm full of admiration for André's resourcefulness and integrity and sheer stamina. Of course, he's keeping many thoughts and emotions below the surface -- he clearly went through hell -- but his generosity and humanity are obvious. Also his sense of humor. As a student of French literature and history, I was extremely interested in his first-hand account of life under the Occupation -- his stint as an SNCF employee, for instance.

And as someone particularly interested in first-person narration (I wrote my dissertation on autobiography), I was captivated by André's voice...eminently publishable.

Prime material for a movie, too!

I wish you the very best of luck with the manuscript! For your sake and André's."
Maria Ascher, Ph.D.
Senior Editor
Harvard University Press

"I was very interested indeed about what you wrote with regard to your research with regard to Natzweiler...

I feel very much that such a book should be written, and would certainly encourage you to do so...."

Yours most sincerely, Martin Gilbert (Sir Martin Gilbert, C.B.E. D. Litt.)

"...the powerful memoir, Call Me André, by André Scheinmann, as edited by Diana Henry....speaks to an important aspect of Holocaust history. Rarely enough do we read of Jewish resistance and Jewish contribution to the struggle of French partisans. Scheinmann's story is an important part of the tapestry of active Jewish opposition to the Nazis....

"I hope that André's memoir finds the audience it deserves, and I encourage you to bring it to readers everywhere."

Sincerely, Ellen W. Kaplan, Professor of Theatre, Smith College, Northampton, Massachusetts.

"Diana Henry's proposed project is an area of research which needs to be done now....

It is an area of Holocaust research which has been gravely neglected...

Her needed study will demonstrate an appreciation and a re-evaluation of the role of the resistance in the allied victory in Europe. As a member of the State of New Jersey's Commission on Holocaust Education, I can assure you that this work of Ms. Henry's is of the greatest importance....

She has created the first very fine bibliography on this concentration camp as well as other writings of innovative and distinctive character regarding the memoirs of survivors of this one camp..."

Sincerely yours, Sister Rose Thiering, O.P. Ph.D. Professor Emerita, Seton Hall University

"Since becoming Executive Director of the Carl Cherry Center the Arts, I have worked closely with scores of artists. I have admired and been moved by the work of many of them, but one artist that continues to stand out is Diana Mara Henry.

"As a photographer, she is in possession of a remarkable gift: she knows how to present difficult material in a way that engages the viewer. This skill gives Diana Henry great influence in the world. She has put that influence to admirable use...."

___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

"I am pleased to have the opportunity to endorse, without reservation and with much enthusiasm, Ms. Diana Henry and her research project on the Nazi Concentration Camp, Natzweiler-Struthof...Her work when complete will be a particularly important addition to the literature of the Holocaust, raising questions uniquely suited to this particular camp. ...She is asking the right questions of her material, including some new and important ones...Considering the construction of a historical web site ( something that a great many of the camps already have, much to the benefit of scholarship...I see her photographic eye of enormous benefit....

"Most of all, Ms. Henry has keyed into the most important aspects of the camp. She is especially fascinated by the fact that this was a major incarceration center for captured members of the French underground and other anti-Nazi political movements in Western Europe. Tracking the fates of these prisoners and interviewing the survivors will create an important window on the still too sketchy history of the resistance."

--- Robert H. Abzug, Professor of History and American Studies, Director, Liberal Arts Honors Programs,

University of Texas at Austin.

"She brings a vast cultural, linguistic, and personal background to her project, to which she is fiercely dedicated....

She has both a personal and professional commitment to her research on Natzweiler-Struthof, as well as the linguistic, artistic, and literary ability to produce a significant piece of work. I urge you to support her.

Sincerely, Jane A. Hale, Associate Professor of French and Comparative Literature, Brandeis University."
