Oprah, Who Can You Believe?
The dominoes finally fell this week after Herman Rosenblat (http://search.yahoo.com/search?p=herman+rosenblat&cs=bz), who had been telling a sweet little story about meeting his wife at the fence of Buchenwald concentration camp in Germany for a dozen years, recanted his story. After a New Republic article raised many questions (http://www.tnr.com/booksarts/story.html?id=f458c2c8-0d4f-4dc7-8cba-15e465c2201a&p=1), publisher Berkley Books (already fooled twice by other authors) canceled his forthcoming memoir (http://www.tnr.com/booksarts/story.html?id=f458c2c8-0d4f-4dc7-8cba-15e465c2201a&p=1), and another publisher offered refunds for "Angel Girl (http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20081230/ap_on_en_ot/books_holocaust_memoir)," a children's book inspired by Rosenblat's tale. His hoax (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/northamerica/usa/3998664/Holocaust-survivors-love-story-exposed-as-a-fraud.html) had charmed Oprah (twice), who declared his story the "single greatest love story...we've ever told on the air (http://www.oprah.com/slideshow/oprahshow/slideshow1_ss_rel_20071114)." Hollywood, which always changes the truth anyway, is going ahead with a film project (http://www.miamiherald.com/news/miami-dade/story/832113.html) based on the well-meant but discredited tale.
