Letter to Commentary Magazine

To The Editor of Commentary:

...I was drawn to-repulsed by, rather-the title of Andre Ryerson's article... I could just as well write a piece on Auschwitz and title it "The Cult of Auschwitz." Is Mr. Ryerson's point that Hiroshima and Nagasaki were justified? They were not--Japanese women and babies were not in Manchuria, nor did they pilot kamikaze planes.

...The bombing of civilian populations has never been, and never will be, justifiable. Or are we now in the absolutely abominable spiritual condition where we are weighing holocausts? (Auschwitz weighs more than Hiroshima?) Innocents died in all the concentration camps and ovens--and innocents died at Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Or should I say "innocence" died, to be replaced with cynicism, nuclear deterrence, and mental death?...
