After reading Leo Bretholz's commentary on the French railroad company SNCF learning that had written about his ordeal running from the Nazis, I recently bought his book ("No reparations, no business," March 1).

While browsing through the book I noticed that Mr. Bretholz has done many appearances talking about his wartime experiences, so I decided to find out if he had any upcoming talks nearby so I could hear him in person.

That's when I found out that Mr. Bretholz had passed recently away. I'm sure he touched many people's lives and I am sorry that I will not get a chance to see and hear him in person.
