      • found: New York times, 12 June 2015 ("Stealing Nazi history from bombed-out streets;" During World War II, Zosa Szajkowski, a Polish-born historian living in Manhattan, joined the United States Army. He was later sent to Europe, where he learned how many of his Jewish relatives had been killed by the Nazis. He also scoured bombed-out streets for paperwork to send home to Jewish institutions -- a kind of revenge for wartime atrocities. After the war, Mr. Szajkowski, an autodidact and high-school dropout who never secured a high-level academic job, wrote hundreds of scholarly articles, mostly about French Jews, with titles as dry as "Jewish Participation in the Sale of National Property During the French Revolution." As he pored over museum and library collections in Europe and the United States, he began cutting out pages and selling them. He trimmed markings identifying the original owners. In 1978, after librarians in New York caught him with stolen goods and he was arrested, Mr. Szajkowski committed suicide at a Manhattan hotel.) {}
