    UW WeritasClicking this logo will bring you to a magazine coverage of the UW unlike anything on the UW campus.   This lede will take you to other  stories about the UW … the athletic department’s budget, the lack of free speech on campus, fights with Cougar U over their desire to make a rival medical school, racism in the Athletic Department, achievements of UW faculty that do not get heralded, relations with the city and state, and more.

  • BUCHENWALD: The Pain Continues

    Buchenwald 31 graphic iconThis tragic LEDE relates efforts by my brother and sister to destroy my father’s heritage as the commanding officer of the first American medical company to enter Buchenwald.  Robert Schwartz’s pictures rot in a safe in Boston. My wife and I  fight in the courts to get these preserved and released into the public domain before all the survivors die and can no longer see the pictures from April 1945.
