Canadian Senate says museum should change display that riled vets
The panel on the allied bombing raids in Germany during World War II titled Enduring Controversy questions the morality and value of the raids, which it says killed 600,000 Germans and left millions homeless while providing the allies with little strategic advantage.
The subcommittee headed by Senator Joseph Day consulted four historians, read letters from veterans and history buffs, and ruled that the panel had been misinterpreted and is the subject of "clear misunderstanding."
However, Day said, the museum has a public responsibility to change the display.
