Ion Antonescu to protest against

members of the violently anti-
Semitic Iron Guard, was denied
permission to see the premier,

A few hours afterwards, how-

emissary to Rabbi Safran with
assurances that the government
had taken steps to quell the

from Budapest that 2.000 per-

been slain in Iron Guard out-

had fought pitched battles with
Rumanian troops at some points.

THE PATRIA DISASTER
The sinking of the S. S. Patria at Haifa harbor will go into
Jewish history as one of the major moments illustrating the
Jewish tragedy in the present war.
About 1800 Jews, persecuted by the Nazis in Nazi-ruled
territories, had been wandering for months on two steamers on
the high seas. They suffered hunger, cold, disease, but lived
in the hope eventually they would reach the shores of Pales-
tine and be admitted into the Jewish Homeland. Their ships
were unseaworthy and they were exposed to the danger of los-
ing their lives at any moment while wandering from port to
port but life for Jews under the Nazis is worse than death at
sea. and the victims believed that all they needed was to reach
the shores of Palestine to start all over again.
Started on their wanderings before Italy joined in the war.
the victims found themselves in an especially precarious posi-
tion when the war spread to the Mediterranean Here they
were on the high seas between the fighting British and Italian
fleets with nowhere even to anchor, with nowhere to secure the
necessary supplies of food and water.
Their tragedy was intensified when, after finally reaching
the shores of Palestine, they were told that as illegal immigrants
they would not be admitted. Instead, they were to be shipped
t. some remote British possession in Africa and isolated there
until the end of the war. As the two ships on which they ar-
rived were declared unseaworthy. they were transferred by
the British authorities to the British steamer Patria which was to
carry them into the wilderness of an African colony.
The mysterious explosion which occurred on the Patria
just a few hours before it was to leave Haifa has. for the time
being, altered the situation of the unfortunates. Instead of be-
ing isolated in wild African territory, they are now interned in
camps in Palestine. They are finally on Palestine soil though
at the cost of more than a score of lives.
The question now is: Will the rescued victims at least be
permitted to remain in Palestine without being under the con-
Lit threat of eventual transfer to Africa? Will the Palestine
administration finally take into consideration the hardships
which these unfortunates endured and permit them to stay.
The Jewish Agency for Palestine has submitted to the Pal-
estine Government a request for the new six months immigra-
tion schedule ending March. 1941. This schedu 1* we hope,
will certainly be larger than the approximately 1750 JewuA
victims rescued from the Patria. Nothing is easier than to leg-
alize the position of these victims by granting them thenghtto
be considered as legally^ntered immigrants under the forrtv
coming immigration schedule. It would have been simple to
each'such an arrangement prior to transfer of the.refugee.to
the Patria for deportation into a remote African land. The lives
Lt as a result of the explosion would then have been spared
and a logical end would have been brought to long months of
high-sea wanderings of 1771 human victims.
TIDBITS FROM EVERYWHERE

FORCED TO LIQUIDATE

banks and corporations in Nazi-
occupied Poland have been given
until Dec. 13 of this year to li-
quidate their business and to
turn their properties over to the
German banks, it was learned.
The decree closing the banks
was issued by Nazi Governor
Hans Frank. It was believed
that a small number of Jewish
savings banks would be permit-
ted to continue business.
Meanwhile, the Polish Minis-
try of Information disclosed that
Nazi authorities supervising the
Jewish ghetto in Warsaw, which
bidden the 500,000 Jews living
behind the 8-foot concrete wall
to use electricity and gas after 8
The entire Jewish community
of Warsaw, with the exception of
Jewish doctors, has been com-
pelled to move into the ghetto.
Jewish doctors may live outside
the ghetto but must display a
"Mogen David" on their shingles.
In the ghetto Jews are com-
pletely shut off from the rest of
the city. At no time of the day
are Jews permitted to leave the
ghetto without special permission
from the Nazi authorities. Even
non-Jews must obtain a pass to
enter the district.
I am informed concerning the
distress of Mrs. Zilch, which isn t
in fact her name. Her name may
be Zylch instead of Zilch.
The Zilches live, I am told,
in a certain delectable village not
far from a certain big American
city which may be Chicago and
then, again may not be Chicago.
It is only recently that they
moved into the village and are
occuping a very nice house in-
deed. Not only are they happy
in t\b house but also in the
They are especially happy in
the neighborhood because it is
so far from the rather Jewish
neighborhood in which they used
to live and in which they were
born, in fact. To get away from
the Jewish neighborhood was
like some lucky escape for Mr.
and Mrs. Zilch who had more
and more been feeling the bur-
den of being Jewish.
Mr. and Mrs. Zilch had begun
hating themselves for being born
Jewish and I hear it said that
Hitler couldn't have hated them
more than they hated them-
On the evening of the day they
moved, wnen all their furniture
had been set in place, and they
were seated for the first time at
their bright new fireplace. Mrs.
Zilch said to Zilch: "At last,
Mortimer!" She said it with a
kind of sweet sigh.
By this she meant yes. Morti-
mer, at last we are out of it
all. out of Hazelwood, out of all
that. Hazelwood is the name of
the somewhat Jewish commun-
ity from which they had es-
caped.) Her happy sigh must
have been that of a refugee from
Germany looking at the Statue
of Liberty for the first time.
As time went on. Mrs. Zilch
felt they hadn't completely es-
caped. They hadn't, in fact, es-
caped from themselves. They
were still conscious of being Jew-
ish. They were the more con-
scious of it because they wire
about the only Jews in the neigh-
borhood. When they were liv-
ing in Hazelwood they could not
feel so conspicuously Jewish be-
cause there were so many Jews
-Mortimer." said Mrs. Zilch.
"I am not feeling as comfortable
as I should."
Not that their neighbors were
not very nice. They were, in-
deed, civilized people who could
find no fault with their new
neighbors simply because they
were Jewish. They knew Mr.
Zilch by reputation as a very
substantial business man in town
and Mrs. Zilch as a lady whom
the press reported as being act-
ive in this and that.
Their neighbors made the cus-
tomary ceremonial calls on them
and had admired the appoint-
ments of their house.
"Still," Mrs. Zilch said. "I can
not feel I am one of them. I
feel like some one apart from
She meant by this that she
was still feeling quite Jewish.
To feel Jewish hadn't been quite
as much a pain in Hazelwood as
it was in the new place.
She thought this way and that
about the whole thing and came
finally to a conclusion.
"Mortimer. I think I know
what's the matter."
"The matter with what?"
"With us. Mortimer. I think
we should have a part in the re-
ligious life of this community.
That will solve it."
"You mean belong to church?"
"Yes! That will make us a
part of the community."
Mr.. Zilch never had much to
do with religion. When he was
13 he was confirmed in a tem-
ple and that was about his last
association with anything relig-
ious, except for the few minutes
he stood before a rabbi to be
married and the half hour of the
funeral service for his father ov-
er whom they said yisgadal.
But he is a man who never
interfered much in the social
things his wife arranged for him.
When she says, Mortimer, we're
going to this house for dinner,
he goes, and when she says Mor-
timer, we're going to that house
for dinner, he goes. So when
she suggested taking up Chris-

YOU SHOULD KNOW
The cultural life of Palestine goes on despite war and black-
outs, with one exception. Dr. Nissan Touroff recently reported
to the Palestine Hebrew Culture Fund The publication of
books and the size of newspapers has been sharply curtailed,
due to an acute shortage of paper in Eretz Israel Jerusalem,
Dr. Touroff further revealed, has become the refugee center of
the Near East Did you read Pierre van Paassen's piece,
entitled "The Coming Bottle for Jerusalem," in last week's Lib-
erty Magazine? We learn that the late Robert Marhall,
forester and son of the Jewish leader Louis Marshall, left the
major part of his fortune, amounting to over a million dollars,
to a foundation that is to study ways and means of instituting
an economy based on the use-motive rather than on the profit-
motive Joseph G. Brin, publisher of the Boston Jewish Ad-
vocate, is the author of a book that should be circulated among
our would-be speakers ... It is called "Personal Power Through
Public Speech." and is a very systematic text-book on that sub-
ject Erwin Piscators production of "King Lear," which is now
being readied for Broadway and which will have Sam Jaffe in
the title role and Roger de Koven in the part of Edmund, will
present the aged king as the first and greatest of the dictators.

WAITING FOR A BOAT THAT DID NOT SAIL
With patient resignation, these Jewish war
refugees are seated on a Lisbon dock next to the
SS Nea Hellas, Creek liner, which was sched-
uled to sail to the United States from Lisbon
last month, but whose voyage was cancelled
because of the Italian invasion of Creece. More
than 12,000 others like them are crowded in
Lisbon awaiting the opportunity to emigrate
overseas. Through its refugee committee in
Lisbon, the American Jewish Joint Distribution
Committee is assisting large numbers of the
stranded emigrants. More than 1,500 are being
daily fed with J.D.C. funds. The J.D.C. receive*
its income from the United Jewish Appeal for
Refugees and Overseas Aid.
