On June 23, 2001, The New York Times reported on The Aufbau, a newspaper founded in New York by Jewish refugees from Hitler 67 years ago. It once contained articles by Thomas Mann, Albert Einstein and Hannah Arendt, and was read by "the tide of German and Austrian Jews that washed over New York in the 1930's and 1940's." Threatened with bankruptcy, it now "has restructured itself as a charitable foundation" and is making a comeback. It continues to cover stories related to the Holocaust.
