I think that there are 3 threads going on right now:

1) A general discussion of the Holocaust and whether it gets "too much at=
compared to other genocides past or present--clearly not appropriate to t=
his list,
albeit interesting, and so I have refrained from commenting on it.

2) A string of personal attacks among certain members--clearly not approp=
riate on
any civilized mailing list and I hope that they take their argument offli=

3) A discussion of Leitz' behavior during the Nazi era and its implicatio=
ns for
today, if any--this in my view IS an appropriate topic for the LUG, since=
this is a relevant part of the history of Leitz/Leica, and we discuss his=
tory of
the company here from time to time, not just the equipment itself. I have=
my opinion on this third thread and will do so again if/when new informat=
becomes available.

Kind regards,
