From the Associated Press:
"The fallout continues from Herman Rosenblat's discredited Holocaust story. Laurie Friedman's Angel Girl, a children's book inspired by Rosenblat, was pulled Tuesday by the Lerner Publishing Group. President and publisher Adam Lerner said in a statement that the Minneapolis-based company had been misled by Rosenblat and his wife, Roma."
Friedman, who lives in Coral Gables and has written several children's books, decided to write about the Rosenblats after reading a story about them in The Miami Herald, she told Ana Veciana Suarez for a feature story that ran in the Herald Dec. 1.
"I had no intention of writing a serious book, but after reading about them I knew this was a story that had to be told, '' she said.
Unfortunately it appears the Rosenblats' story was too good to be true, and the publishers are leaping to disassociate themselves from all things Rosenblat. You have to feel bad for Friedman; this certainly isn't her fault, and yet her book gets yanked from the shelves. Good luck to her on her next endeavor.
