**UPDATE** "To the Ancient Land"


Following correspondence between Dr. Shimon Samuels, the Simon Wiesenthal's Centre's Director for International Relations and Professor David Zeffertt and his publisher, Dr. Samuels and the Centre retract the description of his book, "To the Ancient Land", appearing in its 14th annual report from the Frankfurt Book Fair.

The several testimonials from friends of the Centre regarding the character, background and good faith of Professor Zeffertt, were enough to substantiate his complaint.

He is clearly a proud and devout Jew and Zionist

All references to his book have been removed from our website and an apology has been proffered to Prof. Zeffertt.
