Fund of the Jewish Welfare Bu-

serve residents of Miami who
were in need of a small loan in
order to either retain the small
business they were operating or

Krastokin on the basis of infor-

and taken to a large building on
Engels Street where they were
electrocuted. The victims of the
massacre included women, child-

Major Krastokin charged that
the Nazis had conducted mass ex-
ecutions and other atrocities
against the Jews before retreat-

to have taken place in all Rus-

Soviet troops. Before leaving a
village, the Nazi troops would
seize the Jewish leaders in the
community and execute them, it
This is the story of the lone
survivor of the Kupishak massa-
cre: "Shortly after the Germans
entered Kupishak they rounded
up 15 of the prominent citizens of
the town, including a 40-year-old
Jewish lawyer. Meyer Davidson.
One morning a few weeks later
the Nazi soldiers came to summon
the entire populationJews and
non-Jews to gather in an old
Jewish synagogue. Most of the
hundreds of people who assem-
bled there were Jews, as Kupi-
shak had a very large Jewish
'When they entered the syna-
gogue they saw the 15 hostages
surrounded by Nazi guards. The
Nazi commander then told the as-
blago that several hundred me-
tres of telegraph wire had been
destroyed the previous evening
and that unless the perpetrator
of the sabotage surrendered the
hostages would be shot. He gave
the people 10 minutes to decide.
"As the minutes went by and
the silence remained unbroken,
the commander turned to David-
son and said: 'You're a good law-
yer and orator; speak to them
and save your life.' Whereupon
Davidson ascended to the pulpit
of the synagogue and speaking
with great difficulty, because
most of his teeth had been brok-
en by the Nazis, told his audience;
" 'Brothers, the fate of all op-
pressed nations is always every-
where bound up with the fate of
the struggle for democracy and
freedom. We will die, but our
people shall live because freedom
shall live. I don't wont to buy
my life at the expense of treas-
on .. .'
"At this point a bullet from the
Nazi commander's gun cut short
Davidson's address and he drop-
ped to the floor dead. The shot
from the commander's pistol was
the signal for the soldiers to turn
their machine guns on the crowd.
When they had finished practic-
ally everyone in the synagogue
was dead. That night, after dark.
I and three others who had only
been wounded, slipped out of
town and crept to the woods. My
three companions died of hunger
and loss of blood, but I managed
to reach a guerrilla detachment."

AND ORATOR. DIES FORWAR WORKERS
New York (WNS)The Rever-
end Zvi Hirsch Masliansky. who
played an important role in the
development of the world Zion-
ist movement, died this week at
his home, 4800 Fourteenth Ave-
nue, Brooklyn. He was 87 years
old. For the last 70 years he had
been famous throughout the Jew-
ish world as a Yiddish and He-
brew orator of extraordinary tal-
ent, possessed of a dramatic
forcefulness that led American
newspapers to describe him in his
younger days as the "Henry Ward
Beecher of the Jews."
Born on May 16, 1856 in the
Russian town of Sludsk, in the
province of Minsk, Rev. Maslian-
sky began his career as a teach-
er in the Jewish schools in that
and other towns. His imaginative
and dramatic grasp of the Bible
and his love and mastery of the
Hebrew language produced a
great and lasting influence on
his pupils, among whom was Dr.

VOLUME 16 NUMBER 3
The government of 17 United Nations and
the French National Committee joined in a de-
claration last week pledging to restore to the
rightful owners all property and wealth confis-
cated by the Nazis and their Axis partners in
the occupied countries. While the joint de-
claration did not specifically meinton Jews in
connection with the Axis looting, officials of the
State Department in Washington declared that
all peoples in the occupied countries whose
properties had been seized by the Nazis would
benefit from the new declaration.
It was made clear that the consifacted pro-
perty would be returned to their former owners
regardless of whether it was acguired by the
Nazis "legally" or not. In not all instances did
the Nazis resort to outright plunder, robbery
and murder to gain control of desired property.
Freguently they passed laws entitling them to
"Aryanize" property belonging to Jews, or used
coercion supported by the threat of a concen-
tration camp to persuade a Jewish business
man to sell his enterprises to the Nazis at ridic-
ulously low prices. The United Nations are
aware of Hitler's strategy, and they are now
on record as determined to return all of the
Nazi Fuehrer's loot
For some unannounced reason, however,
the pledge to restore the confiscated enter-
prises does not apply to Germany or Italy
only to the occupied countries. Surely, the
Nazis who impoverished German Jewry, seiz-
ing all shops, factories, commercial houses,
publishing enterprises, amusement places, etc.,
will not be permitted to retain their ill-gotten
gains after the war. The joint declaration, it
seems to us, should be supplemented to cover
confiscated wealth in the native lands of Naz-
ism and Facism.
"We are not fighting the Axis as a test of
military strength any more than one prizefight-
er fights another as an academic test of who is
the better fighter We are fighting for a spe-
cific stakethe greatest stake ever put up in
any fight in the history of the world. That
stake is peace, not for twenty-five years but for
a century; that stake is security, not for a few
people for a short time but for all people for a
long time."Arthur Hays Sulzberger, presi-
dent, New York Times.
SHAPE OF THE HEAD
There is a reason when we think a lot about
the children. Take that little child of yours.
It resembles you, you say, and the Missus
says, it resembles her.
You are both rightbut it resembles some-
one else also.
Who else, you ask?
It resembles your Uncle Sam
That at least was the contention of Prof.
Franz Boaz, foremost authority on anthrop-
ology who has just died.
Prof. Boaz made measurements of the Cran-
ial shape of immigrants to America and of the
children of immigrants and he proved, by
measurement taken on the East Side of New
York, that the cranial measurements of the
children were affected by the dominant pat-
terns of the environment, that is, to say, that
Jewish children born in America were apt to
have heads more characteristically American
than those of their immigrant sires. This was
merely a dramatic demonstration of what in
general all of the studies of Prof. Boaz proved,
namely, that race differences were largely
speaking, environmental differences.
Born in Germany, and steeped in German
science. Prof. Boaz nevertheless was a tower-
ing force, exposing the hollowness of the Nazi
race theories. He demonstrated that there is
scarcely to be found a pure race, that the Lar-
ger the group, the more questionable the racial
purity of the group
As to the pure Germanic race. Prof. Boaz
demonstrated that this was pure nonsense
that the Germans were a very much mixed
The Nazi did not go in much for culture ex-
cept for that distorted offshoot, marriage of a
thousand errors and fallacies, called Nazi cul-
ture. The one science which they did exalt
was the science of raceand that too they dis-
torted so that "any resemblance with the truth
was purely coincidental."
The science of race instead of proving the
superiority of one race to another proves in
fact, just the contrary. There are no great dif-
ferences of original endowments between the
races, although there may be considerable be-
tween individuals. Every race can point to
its beacon lights who have contributed signal-
ly to history.
The science of race actually is a demon-
stration of the democratic theory.
TIDBITS FROM EVERYWHERE-

Mr. Fred K. Shochet, Editor.
The Jewish Floridian.
Dear Mr. Shochet:
I have read with regret the edi-
torial entitled "Can't Hurt." re-
lating to the local Zionist Dist-
rict, in your issue of Friday. Jan.
8th. I feel that the editorial re-
quires a reply in order to correct
some false impressions which may
be gained therefrom. Your edi-
torial makes the following state-
ment: "At election time, the ap-
pearance of a regional represen-
tative and the occasional meeting
caused by national pressure has
been the program agenda of the
local Zionist District." Most peo-
ple reading this statement, with-
out knowledge of the facts, would
come to the conclusion that the
officers of the local Zionist Dist-
rict accepted their office merely
for the honor, without any inten-
tion of carrying out the program
which the duties of their office
required. Since the finger of crit-
icism would be pointed most
strongly toward the President. I
feel it proper to make a reply,
since I served as President of the
local Zionist District during the
past year. Officers of an organi-
zation should always be amen-
able to criticism, and I certainly
feel that I can take it. but I think
that criticism should be construct-
I was elected on October 30,
1941. The following meetings
were held: Dec. 3, Hotel Evans,
Miami Reach, with program in-
cluding a debate on the subject.
"Resolved, that no American Jew
should be a Zionist"; Jan. 7, 1942.
Hotel Evans, with program in-
cluding a Zionist 'Information
Please"; February. 1!)42. when
membership was requested by
letter to attend lecture at Temple
by the well known author. Mau-
rice Samuel, who we thought
would spc-ak on a subject of inter-
est to all Zionists; March 4. 1942
when program included an inter-
esting discussion by the well
known lecturer and former edi-
tor of National Geographic Mag-
azine, the Hon. Joe Mitchell Chap-
pie, who gave his impressions
gained through travels in Pales-
tine; April. 1942. when a meeting
at Hotel Evans featured an ad-
dress by Judge Louis Levinthal.
President of the Zionist Organi-
zation of America. We sponsored
a "Zionist Night" at the syna-
gogues and temples in the Great-
er Miami area on December 26th,
when the rabbis of the various
congregations spoke on the sub-
ject of Zionism. I served as sec-
retary of the local Zionist Council
comprised of the various Zionist
groups in the Greater Miami area,
including Senior Hadassah. Pio-
neer Women, Mizrachi, Masadah,
and others, and attended about
fifteen meetings of this Zionist
Council in an effort to help co-
ordinate the efforts of the vari-
ous Zionist groups locally. As
I you will remember, I also wrote
| a few articles for your valued pa-
per about the Zionist movement
and its activities, in an attempt
to stir up some enthusiasm in the
community foi its ideals. I list
these events of the past year, not
for the purpose of securing any
credit for our activities, but to
bring home the point of this re-
ply. Each one of these events
was duly publicized. There was
a fair attendance at some of these
meetings by TOURISTS, but on-
ly a handful of Miami and Miami
Beach residents were present.
For the meetings when the pro-
gram included Hon. Joe Mitchell
Chappie, we sent out 500 letters
and spent half a day calling peo-
ple on the telephone requesting
their presence, and the grand at-
tendance as a result of these ef-
, forts was not exceeding ten peo-
ple. With these facts in mind,
would it not have been more
proper for you to direct your crit-
icism toward those in our com-
munitly who showed such a com-
plete lack of interest in the ideals
of a movement which you would
like to see succeed? In other
words, is it not appropriate for us
i to ask the question "Was you
, there. Charlie?" and to take a
sentence from the New Testament
which fits the situation perfectly
are we not entitled to sav that
, He who is without sin amongst
you, cast the first stone."
I am not proud of my admin-
istration of the local Zionist Dis-
^'^ ff the past year! more
should have been accomplished.
But in all sincerity, I say that
the apathy and lack of coopera-
tion by many of those who should
have been interested in the suc-
; cess of this great movement, con-
tributed greatly to our failures.
Probably I should have continued
to schedule monthly meetings,
and arrange fine programs there-
for, even though only a handful

Pierre van Paassen's war prediction for 1943 is that Hitler
will loose an all-out spring offensivea peace drive pos-
sibly to be launched through Spain or Italy Should this
fail he will, in a last desperate gamble, make a gigantic as-
sault on the British Isles ... 1943 will, largely because of that
peace offensive, bring the acid test of the morale of the de-
mocracies, declares Van Paassen, adding that just before or
immediately after the winter of 1943-44 Hitler's home front
will crumble Speaking of forecasts, our own Chief Cab-
balist reminds us that he has always claimed that this year
5703 would be a "year of exile," and events in Nazi-occupied
Europe do seem to be bearing him out The C. C. adds
that we should look out for the month of Adar, when, he
claims, "the presumptuous will be brought low" Then
there's Dr. Nahum Goldman, who's not at all happy about the
accuracy with which a prophecy he made a year ago was
fulfilledbut he does feel that the Yiddish newsmen who at
the time called him unduly pessimistic should now admit that
he was right For what Dr Goldman predicted a year ago
was that a million or more Jews would die in Europe in 1942.
THIS AND THAT ....
New Yorkers interested in the civilizations of ancient As-
syria, Babylonia and Egypt in their relations to the Bible
have the opportunity to hear a course of lectures on this sub-
ject by Dr. A. S. Yahuda, the noted scholar who is on the fac-
ulty of the New School for Social Research This series
will be followed by another course of lectures on Islam and
Arab civilization Best-seller among the dozens of colored
picture magazines published for the kiddies these days is a
new one, called "Picture Stories from the Bible" Ben
Hecht is writing a special dramatic spectacle for a Madison
Square Garden mass meeting to be held under the auspices
of the Committee for a Jewish Army Milton Mayer, who
achieved such notoriety with his Saturday Evening Post
article on the Jewish question, recently published a piece in
a Western paper against the Jewish Army project His ar-
gument was that all Zionist leaders oppose the plan.
Anti-Semitism is on the rampage in Kings County, New
York And its active agents sneak around almost invisibly
on rubber soles No publicity and no organizational set-up
but they use the pincer strategy against Jewish storekeepers
by applying a quiet yet terribly efficient boycott Those
who are organizing this squeeze movement are getting plenty
of money from some very wealthy and "respectable" citi-
zens The textbook Commission to Eliminate Anti-Semitic
Statements from American Textbooks, of which Kenneth Les-
lie is the chairman, will soon be making the headlines .
The Committee of Jewish Writers and Artists is launching a
campaign that will mobilize outstanding intellectuals for the
building up of American-Russian friendship Minor mys-
tery of the Jewish National Fund banquet to its president. Dr.
Israel Goldstein, a couple of weeks ago: What did Dr. Gold-
stein whisper in Irving Berlin s ear after the composer an-
nounced that he was going to sing his new hit, "I'm Dreaming
of a White Christmas?" Anyhow, after hearing what Dr.
Goldstein had to say, Irving sang not the announced piece,
but another one of his hits, "God Bless America."
The late Enrico Glicenstein, who was killed by a taxi a
couple of weeks ago, had not been in a happy frame of
mind His huge new statute, "National Defense," was on
exhibit, and those in charge had given it a most undignified
place in a shadowy hall It's true that, after representa-
tions by some of Glicenstein's friends, the statute was moved
to a better locationbut the sculptor felt very much hurt, and
the blow to his prestige constantly weighed on his mind .
Arthur Szyk, the great satirist and miniaturist whose paintings
are among the most trenchant commentaries on the war, is
now exhibiting sixty-six canvases at the Seligmann Galleries,
New York Szyk is the hardest-working artist we know .
He gets up at five in the morning, and works straight through

the way he puts it.

Sholem Lodge Meeting
The ban on pleasure driving
cut into the attendance at the
last meeting of Sholem Lodge,
held Tuesday evening, neverthe-
less those who attended were am-
ply compensated for the trouble
they took by the enlightening
talk of County Tax Assessor J.
N. Lummus, jr., who explained
the local tax situation and an-
swered many questions with re-
spect to the different tax set-ups.
The meeing was streamlined
to permit brethren and their la-1
dies of the Auxiliary to depart
at a reasonable hour, but the
necessary business was cxpedi-
tioUSly disposed of.
A resolution was adopted rec-
ognizing the significance, import-
ance and excellence of the work
of William I. Boxerman, erst-
while Regional Director of the
Anti-Defamation League, and ex-
pressing regret that his services
are lost to that office and the
of all committees has been sent
to the membership in the last
B'nai B'rith Bulletin, and mem-
bers are urged to send the forms,
filled in, to the B'nai B'rith of-

We refer to attendance again

comes to spend the few meeting
hours with his brethren. To him
this is a right and a privilege so
much more valued because hith-
erto denied him. It is the spirit-
attending meetings during war
time, discussing freely, and ming-
ling with brethren freely.
Gregariousness has been lim-
ited to ghettos in too many parts
of the worldwe still may con-

An Appeal to the Members of the
Y. M. H. A. and to the Jewish
Community by Maurice Gross-
man. Executive Director.
The recent dim-out regulations
and restrictions in driving have
played havoc with the general
program in the community. Citi-
zens who have been affected by
these restrictions have been
seized with indescribable fear,
with the result that should such
attitude continue on the part of
our citizenry, all of our institu-
tions will have to be closed. "We
have been SO accustomed to daily
routines that it is hard to adjust
ourselves to new restrictions,
new conditions and new methods.
The program of the Y. M. H. A.
must continuewar or no war.
We cannot afford to lag. We must
have this building ready and our
program going on when our boys
return. If we digress from this
method, it would be ruinous for
our fighting boys. We cannot per-

REAL ESTATEMIAMI BEACH i .
----i The Jewish Federation recog-
nizes the progressive work of the
Hillel Foundation and the con-
tinued necessity therefor by allo-
cating S500 toward its continu-
ance. B'nai B'rith still has the
burden of shouldering the major
proportion of the total cost of
this work, but it will be well to
bear in mind, when the Federa-
tion launches its annual drive for
funds, that it is helping the com-
munity in this, as in other work.
Just remember that work that has
taken years in building should
not be stopped because it is now
necessary to make contributions
to more serious sources than be-
fore the war.
Final appointment of standing
committees has been delayed to
give every Ben B'rith an oppor-
tunity to signify his preference of
