78.000 out of a total Jewish popu-

city of Vitebsk were evacuated
in safety before that city fell to
the Nazi invaders, the Soviet
press reported this week.
The story of the mass evacua-
tion and the subsequent massacre
of the 22.000 Jews who elected
to remain in the city was brought

accompanied the Jews on their
long trek to safety behind the

ALL JEWS MUST BE EXPELLED
FROM GERMANY BY AUGUST
Geneva (WNS)High Nazi au-
thorities in Berlin have ordered
police to complete the deporta-
tions of German Jews to Nazi-
occupied Poland and certain sec-
tions of Russia before August 1,
was reported here.
Thousands of Jews are being
crowded into freight and cattle
Polish ghettos, the reports stated.
For the purpose of recording inter-racial and international
mass condemnation of the hideous slaughter of the lews by
Hitler's Naziland. a mass meeting of Greater Miami Jewry will
take place this coming Sunday morning at 10 o'clock at the
Miami Beach Jewish Center, 1415 Euclid Avenue, Miami Beach.
The Miami Round Table of the National Council of Christians
and Jews will also join in protest that day with a community-
wide program, under the chairmanship of Rev. Richard Broyles,
head of the Greater Miami Ministerial Association. A radio
program Saturday evening of the Round Table will discuss the
The program for Sunday morning will include Frank Malone,
noted commentator of WIOD; Rev. Richard Broyles, Rabbi Max
Shapiro, Dr. Samuel Bension, Dr. Jacob H. Kaplan, Burnett Roth,
Harry Simonhoff, William I. Boxerman, Rabbi Abraham Kellner,
Rabbi Colman A. Zwitman, and Cantor Maurice Mamches.
There will be no solicitation of funds.
Similar to mass demonstrations all over the country, serving
a challenge to Nazi methods of inhuman destruction, the local
meeting will follow that of others voicing its expression of the
free peoples' determination? to wipe from the face of the earth
the dreadful scourge of Hitlerism. National figures in political
and religious bodies have made strong statements of condemna-
tion expressing grief over the massacre of Jews and the hope
of the United Nations early reprisal.
President Roosevelt in a statement for the occasion said,
"The Nazis will not succeed in exterminating their victims any
more than they will succeed in enslaving mankind."
Dr. Henry A. Atkinson, general secretary of the Church
Peace Union, said: "Christians everywhere share the sorrow
of their Jewish brothers under the black shadows of Tisha B'av.
. Hitler is using anti-Semitism as a propaganda wedge to-
ward degradation and division in unconquered countries in-
cluding our own Christians everywhere, stirred by compas-
sion and a fellowship of indignation, are determined that in the
postwar reconstruction Jews will receive just opportunities in
Europe, Palestine and throughout the world."
Every Jew in the Greater Miami area is urged to be present
Washington (WNS)Rep. El-
mer J. Holland of Pennsylvania,
demanded that the United Na-
tions use "the strength, the cour-
age, the devoted loyalty of 100,000
Jews in Palestine," in an address
to the House this week.
"Militarily, this waste of 100.-
000 fighting men already on the
ground of crucial action is ab-
surd." he said. "Il cannot be de-
fended. Morally, this denial of
the right of self-defense to the
Jews of Palestine is wicked. Il
cannot he defended ... It is just
and fitting that a Jewish army
march with those who will some
day parade in victory in the
streets of Berlin."
Rep. Holland's colleague, Rep.
Herman P. Eberharter. support-
ing the demand for a Jewish
army, emphasized that the pro-
posal for a Jewish army does not
contemplate the recruitment of
Jews in the United States or in
any of the other United Nations
where Jews arc permitted to
serve in the armed forces. Rep.
Andrew Somers of New York
stated that Holland's speech
would be "most heartening to

LET US CRY OUT
The action taken last week
by the Miami Round Table of
Christians and Jews, in setting
aside Sunday, August 2, as a
day for protest against the
Nazi atrocities in Europe, is in
keeping with the spirit of this
splendid organization. While
Christian ministers will,
through appropriate sermons,
focus the attention of their
congregants upon the tragedy
across the seas, the Miami
Jewish community will un-
burden its collective heart in
a mass meeting, under the
auspices of the Greater Mi-
ami Rabbinical Association.
The meeting at the Miami
Beach Jewish Center should
attract an overflow attend-
ance. Similar meetings have
been held throughout the
country. We reprint an edi-
torial from the July 24th issue
of "Every Friday," a Cincin-
nati Anglo Jewish weekly,
which expresses exactly our
"There was a time when
American Jewry was very
quick to react to great misfor-
tunes which befell Jewish com-
munities from time to time in
other parts of the world .
Nor did the Jews in those days
respond only with lip service
of protest ... It will be recalled
that during September and Oc-
tober of 1929. over two million
dollars came into the treasury
of the spontaneously organized
Palestine Emergency Fund Com-
mittee, without the highly spe-
cialized machinery of organized

the infamous Simpson report on
Palestine, the whole of Ameri-
can Jewry stormed with pro-
test Since then. European
Jewry has suffered a whole se-
ries of great misfortunes .
Each catastrophe of greater in-
tensity than the preceding one.
American Jewry has been re-
sponding in a measure to these
terrible catastrophes We
have been raising yearly quotas
through super organized fund
raising campaigns During
1933. 1934 and 1935 there took
place a number of protest meet-
ings throughout the country.
"For the past several years,
however, our own expressions
of protest against the indescrib-
able tortures and massacres of
innocent Jewish men, women
and children committed by the
Nazis, have been all too meager.
Indeed, we seem to have be-
come so callous of spirit that
recent news dispatches giving
detailed reports of the massa-
cre of tens of thousands of civil-
ian Jews, old men. women and
children, in some of the Rus-
sian cities occupied by the Nazi
armies, have found the voice of
protest of American Jewry in-
articulate as if a conspiracy of
silence existed in our midst.
"And so. we take heart in the
action of the American Jewish
Congress, the B'nai B'rith and
the Jewish Labor Committee
which resulted in the gTeat pro-
test meeting at the Madison
Square Garden last Tuesday
evening That meeting was
a tremendous outcry of Jewish
"Such prayer meetings give
us the opportunity to cry out in
unison against the bestiality
perpetrated upon innocent civil-

continue to symbolize Jewish

Your scribe was born in
Windy City of Chicago, 111., on
January 5, 1910 (near Maxwell
Street). Came to Miami in 1935
and through Boris Schlachman,
alov sholem, became interested
in Y.M.H.A work. Have been
writing (at least attempting to
write) a column for the Jewish
Floridian for the past seven
years. At present am employed
at the U. S. Air Intransit Depot.
In my home life, my wife Sandra
and two children, Douglas, 3,
and Roberta, IMj years of age,
will verify my contentment. My
first desire is to see this war
brought to a victorious conclus-
ion for the Allies and then for
the building of a Community
Center that will be the pride not
only of the U. S. but of the Latin
Americas with whom we will by
then have much closer relations.
Both Home Camps at Miami
and the Beach continue to flour-
ish greater and better than ever.
Last week the Miami Beach Camp
had the pleasure of hearing Dr.
Samuel Bension. rabbi of the
Jewish Center of Miami Beach.
Rabbi Bension was a guest at
luncheon last Friday and all the
boys and girls in the Home Camp
enjoyed his fine talk. The rabbi
praised the Camp and the staff
tor the fine work they are doing
"or the children. In the Miami
Home Camp. Sheriff Coleman and
his deputy, Morris Wroobel. were
the guests at luncheon last Mon-
day. The sheriff is one of our
itaunchest supporters. He has
never missed a visit to the Home
^amp since it was organized four
years ago. In his talk he stressed
he fact that the activities that
they receive in the Home Camp
make them better fit to become
better citizens when they grow
older. On Wednesday of this
week, Norton Benton, executive
director of the Council of Social
Agencies, of which the "Y" is an
affiliated member, was our guest
at luncheon. He, too, praised the
Home Camp and its activities.
Boy Scouts Give Father and
This Sunday night, August 2,
our Boy Scout Troop 6 will cele-
brate Father and Son Night at
the "Y." Prominent speakers of
the Dade County Scout Commit-
tee will be present and entertain-
boys. All children between the
ages of 10 and 14, whether mem-
bers of the Scout Troop or not,
are invited to come here with
their fathers and mothers. There
will be no admission and refresh-
ments will be served.

"The criminal atrocities of the Nazis against
the Czechs and all lovers of liberty in Europe
make it difficult to restrain the emotion of hat-
red for all followers of Nazism. Our religion
teaches us to hate evil and not the evil-doer,
but how long can the United Nations hold
back from waging this war of survival not only
with invincible courage but also with furious
hate when the abominations and indescribable
cruelties of the Axis continue apace?"Rabbi
Hyman J. Schachtel.
WE CANNOT WIN IF .
Our job is to prove that democracy can
function in war as in peace. We cannot win
this war as labor, as capital, as agriculture.
We cannot crush the enemy as Democrats or
Republicans. We cannot win if we are separ-
ated by religious bias or racial hatred. We
cannot win by petty sniping at the war ef-
fort."Attorney General John J. Bennett, at an-
nual dinner of the Sullivan County Democratic
"On every side the work of aiding refu-
gees is bearing fruit. Today refugee boys are
serving in America's armed forces, eager to
defend the country which gave them haven.
Refugee scientists and inventors are contribut-
ing their learning and experience both to the
war effort and to civilian life. Every phase of
American life,business, industry and the
artshas profited in some way from the refu-
gee's enterprise and knowledgehis appre-
ciation of democracy."William Rosenwald
statement from third annual report of National
Facing the enemy on the battlefield is not
a pleasing prospect, but it would seem from
the reports which come in steadily that it's
almost peace and happiness as compared to
the fate of the Jew in the Nazi-occupied and
conguered lands. Thus, this week there is the
report that 200,000 Jews in Poland have been
recently rounded up and sent to forced labor
camps. In this same week there is the report
of the hanging of a number of Polish Christians
for the crime of having smuggled a bit of milk
to Jewish children in the ghetto. The Polish
government in exile estimates that some 90,-
000 Jewish civiliansmen, women and child-
ren have been massacred by the Gestapo in
the last three months.
In this same week, came estimates that in
the vicinity of Kishinev, 60,000 Jews were mas-
sacred. Approximately twenty-five per cent of
the 70,000 Jews of Bessarabia and Bukovina
have perished and the remainder in the Nazi-
occupied territory face death by starvation
if no help is forthcoming. In view of the re-
ports that the rationing even for the non-Jews
in Nazi-occupied countries is to be reduced, we
may be sure that this help for the Jews of
Rumanis will not be forthcoming. Another re-
port this week says that 16,000 Jews were mas-
sacred by the Nazis in a three day pogrom in
Lithuania. All this is but the news grist of a
Little wonder the remaining civilized world
is crying outprotestinglittle wonder mass
meetings are held shrieking objection.
This would make us despair, but there are
little items of heroism which rekindle our hope.
The heroism of our people in this battle will
not wipe away the tears of the mothers who
have seen their own children, wee infants,
mowed down by Nazi firing sguads, will not
wipe away a million other pangs, but yet re-
mains the hope that the sweeping demoniac
Nazi madness will soon be wiped out from the
In the House of Commons, the Jewish labor-
ite member, Mr. Simon Silverman, voiced a
I protest recently against what he called "a
] conspiracy of silence" regarding the Nazi at-
rocities against Jews. The address of Mr.
Silverman followed a speech by Mr. Zygle-
baum, a member of the Polish Parliament in
London in which he cited the fact that some
700,000 Jews have been massacred by the Na-
zis in Poland alone.
The point was stressed by both speakers
that the Nazis feel, regarding the Jews, that
there neefl be no limitation, whatsoever, to
their brutality. Nazi spokesmen were even
guoted as saying that five minutes before the
end of the warwhichever way the war ends
every Jew in occupied lands will be exter-
The only thing that can check the Nazis is
the fear of reprisals. For with all their boasted
bravery, the Nazis are very much in love with
their own skins. Leaders everywhere are de-
manding that the representatives of the demo-
cratic nations specifically and directly warn
the Nazis that they will have to render an ac-
ounting for their treatment of the Jews. There
can be little doubt that such a protest will have
a desirable effect. In England, some response
was immediate. The British radio broadcast a
statement made in the earlier days of the war,
mentioning reprisals for anti-Jewish atrocities,
by Mr. Churchill. In America, President Roose-'
veil issued a statement addressed to the Nazis
on this matter.
It is very important that this be done.

"Democracies must cooperate with each
other in a way they have never cooperated
before. That is not a question of belief or a
theory of democratic foreign policy. It is a
necessity of survival. Our countries must co-
operate with each other or die. However
proud we may be of our strength, not one of us
believes that he can lick the world-wide forces
of the Axis single-handed."Sir Gerald Camp-
bell, British Minister in Washington.
"Today, there are only friends and ene-
miespeople who believe in civilization and
people who don't. We betray the meaning of
this war if we assume that those who have tak-
en refuge here from Germany or Italy are apt
to be enemies. The more patriotic they are,
the more they may be expected to be on our
side. A patriot does not want to see his coun-
try looted by thieves or governed by hordes
of sadistic bandits and murderers."Herbert
Agar, president of Freedom House.
RADIO IN A DEMOCRACY
"Broadcasting must not be used to stir up
racial and religious bigotry, to drive a wedge
between the laborer and the employer or to
create distrust. Radio is free, and must be
kept free. How vital this is to the mainten-
ance of democracy can be seen in the fact that
the fust act of dictators, intent on enslaving
then own peoples or conquering others, is to
seize control of broadcasting stations."Niles
Trammell. president of the National Broadcast-
PEACE MUST BE JUST
"The decision of the Allied Governments to
bring to justice those proved guilty of these
abominations is the primary aim. The settle-
ment must be in a political and military sense
very severe, bu} it must also be such as qives
to he ordinary German citizen the sense (hat
so long as his state behaves itself there is open
to him as full a chance of good-humored life
as to anybody. -Archbishop of Canterbury
We wonder whether you noticed a rather funny episode
in the story of the eight Nazi spies now being sentenced for
their sabotage plans They did all their shopping at Weber
and Heilbronner's, thinking it was a pure Aryan firm ... But,
as it happens, Weber and Heilbronner were among the first
to join the anti-Nazi boycott in this country Two of the
Bundists whom the FBI apprehended a couple of weeks ago
tried to retain Louis Nizer as their attorney Nizer, who in
addition to being a brilliant lawyer is one of our most active
Jewish leaders, is quoted as having told them: "I'll take the
case on these terms: If I win you pay me nothingbut if I
lose I want S300.000, deposited in advance" .
YOU SHOULD KNOW
Emil Ludwig's recent remark that all Germans are Nazis
and will have to be treated accordingly after the war has
aroused the indignation of Paul Tillich, outstanding theolo-
gian Tillich, a Christian but a great defender of the Jews,
left Germany because he couldn't stand the Nazi atmosphere
... He now says that Ludwig's statement smacks of anti-
Semitism in reverse Jerry Finkelstein, publisher of the
Civil Service Leader, has become the hope of New York's
liberal educators ... He will, in this fall's elections, run in
opposition to State Senator Fredric R. Coudert, Jr., whose
Rapp-Coudert Committee has made quite a nuisance of itself
with its tactics of branding liberals as Communists ... Vio-
linist Fritz Kreisler, who has not appeared in public since his
serious injuries in a traffic accident last year, is ready to
appear on the concert stage again ... He convinced himself
of this when, just a couple of weeks ago, he made his first
reappearance before an audiencean audience consisting
of the RCA Victor microphones, which picked up the strains
of the Kreisler Stradivarius playing Kreisler compositions for
the new Kreisler album of records, entitled "My Favorites"

Similar to work being done by
the Miami Section, National
Council Jewish Women is told in
an interesting release reaching
here this week from New York
from the Department of Service
to Foreign Born of the National
Council of Jewish Women.
Taking place the latter part of
June in New York, one of the
dock workers tells of being up at
the crack of dawn to meet the
Serpa Pinto, much talked of ves-
sel carrying about 700 passengers,
most of them Jewish refugees.
The boat had docked during the
night and passengers were ex-
amined at once. The pier, under
the control of Navy and Immigra-
tion officials was mobbed for
blocks around by relatives and
friends. She tells of working
straight through till 2:30 a. m. be-
fore finally calling it a day,
spending every minute of the
time assisting the refugees among
which were Alfred Drey fuss and
his family of eight. He is the son
of the famous Dreyfuss involved
in the Devil's Island case; a mem-
ber of the Rothschild family, a
widow of 67; two well-known
French scientists, who greeted
their kin in the typical French
manner of kissing both cheeks;
a famous lady astrologer, who
made a striking picture with her
There was a group of 50 child-
ren. 25 of whom were Spanish,
brought to the United States un-
der the auspices of the United
States Committee for European
Children. In addition to this
group, there were two little boys
and two little girls, traveling un-
accompanied. "We assisted the
children," she said, "who were
admitted to waiting friends and
relatives. Only one sad, lonely
little girl of 11 had no one. She
was destined to go on to Ohio to
live with her uncle. I took her
under my care since it was past
midnight and sent her off bright
and early the next morning. She
and her relatives have already
written us of her safe arrival. I
have just learned, that her parents
have been expelled from Ger-
many and sent to Poland. The
child has not been told."
A touching reunion occured be-
tween an aged Rabbi and his
sister. I was able to get permis-
sion for him to sit on the string-
piece because he was ill. This was
at 8:30 a. m. At 4:30 p. m. he was
still there, looking so faint that
I rushed to get him some nourish-
ment. At 10 p. m. his sister, a pale
frightened little woman in her
late fifties was cleared and came
to greet him. This was their first
meeting in twenty years and they
did not recognize each other.
There wasn't a dry eye amongst
A total of 92 persons were sent
to Ellis Island because they had
fever. This group included most
f the Spanish children. An
emergency shelter was given to

WITNESS TELLS OF PLIGHTS
OF JEWS IN NAZI HELD CITIES
the horrible conditions facing the
Jews in Nazi-occupied Russian
territory, Flensburger Nachrich-
ten, Danish paper reaching here
this week, published the first-
hand report of its special corres-
pondent now touring German-
held territories in Eastern Eur-
Declaring that "the disappear-
ance of the Jews has created the
atmosphere of a purge in Dvinsk,
Minsk and Vina", the article ob-
served that "wherever Jews are
still living in Eastern Europe they
have been herded into ghettos
behind barbed wire and are be-
ing used in groups for forced la-
bor on reclamation work. In the
easternmost German-held cities,
where skilled artisans are scarce,
Jews are allowed to work at their
respective trades, producing goods
needed by the German army."
The article spoke of the ef-
fective "scorched earth" policy
pointing out that in Dvinsk and
Minsk "three-quarters of the
houses were destroyed by the
Jews before the Germans cap-
tured the cities." Jews composed
about sixty percent of the popu-
lation of Dvinsk and nearly half
the population in Minsk.

troops, sent to Yugoslavia to fight

there, executed 120 Jews when
they entered the city of Ovidek,
it was reported here. The Jews
were accused of helping the guer-
illa fighters to continue their re-
sistance to the Axis armies.
At the same time, the Hungar-
ian military authorities imposed
a fine of 120,000 pengoes on the
Jewish community on the ground
that the Jews were sympathetic
to the "guerilla cause." All Jew-
ish homes in the city were looted
and the inhabitants beaten.

New and additional pledges are
still being received to help swell
the 1942 campaign funds. The
Federation minimum goal of
$121,500 is now in sight. An
additional 1942 pledge was re-
cently received from Irving Ap-
plebaum. Mr. Applebaum con-
tributed a substantial amount
during the drive, but hearing that
Federation was far short of its
minimum goal he voluntarily sent
in a check for an additional $250.
Day J. Apte. chairman of the
1942 campaign has offered an in-
ducement for additional gifts by
his offer to give an additional
$500 if Federation is able to raise
$4,500 by October 1. $450 has al-
ready been raised toward this
Monte Selig, chairman of the
collections committee, reports
that in spite of adverse business
conditions in Greater Miami, col-
lections on the 1942 campaign are
running slightly ahead of last
year. According to the last re-
port $80,000 has already been
collected of the over $116,000
raised to date in the campaign.
From present indications collec-
tions will be better this year than
last. Mr. Selig reports that "Fed-
eration contributors know that
their Federation pledges are
pledges to charitable causes and
they consider these a greater
moral debt than any other obliga-
tion. A few individuals cannot
pay on the day they have prom-
ised but usually send in their
check later in the year."
The executive committee of
Federation met on Monday, July
27th to consider a request of the
War Chest Appeal Board of Dadc
County that Federation coming
year postpone its drive until af-
the the War Chest Appeal which
will be held late in January. Af-
ter considerable deliberation the
request of the War Chest was
favorably accepted and the 1943
drive of Federation was set for
February, after the 15th. The fol-
lowing were present at the execu-
tive committee meeting: Rudy
