I was interested to read in Masha Leon’s column in the July 23 issue of The
Forward that Laura Z. Hobson, who wrote the book Gentlemen’s Agreement, which
was made into the famous movie of the same name with Gregory Peck, was Jewish.
The “Z” in her name stood for Zametkin. Her father, Michael Zametkin, was one of
the Forward’s first editors.
