I have two questions: First, I am reading two personal narratives, one by Fania Fenelon, entitled Playing for Time, and the other entitled Shivitti. Are these accurate and historical, as opposed to fictional, narratives? I ask because a few months ago, someone on this network referred to Fenelon's narrative as fictional and because in the other narrative, the survivor has endured psychological treatments involving LSD. The other question concerns the ship The St. Louis, which was denied entry into Cuba and the U.S. Is this the only ship that encountered this problem or did other ships face similar predicaments in attempts to bring Jews out of Germany?
