To the editors:

The "Children of the Holocaust" was well written, but somewhat slanted [July 6]. 1 really doubt there could be such a horror here in the USA; for one thing, there are too many constitutional safeguards.

However, there are striking parallels between the thirties and today. For example, abortion on demand, greed, drug abuse, pornography, a high divorce rate, rape, and runaways--all symptoms of the breakdown of the family.
