To the Editor:
—My sympathy goes out to Dr. R. J. Hamburger and any other human being unfortunate enough to be confined in a German concentration camp. I have no objection to the publication of his letter about the article "Immersion Hypothermia," published in the January 1947 issue of the Archives. As he says, "Nothing can be gained by suppressing . . . scientific knowledge because it has been acquired in a criminal way." I did not comment on the reliability of the data obtained by the German investigators (investigators they were for good or evil) except to remark that certain data agreed with my own findings. I see no further need to comment now.
