RED CROSS GROUP HAS
REPORT ON CAMAIGN DRIVE
Geneva (WNS)Seven of the
remaining Jewish leaders in Ber-
lin have been executed by Nazi
firing squads in accordance with
orders from Adolf Hitler to wipe
out the Jewish population of oc-
cupied Europe, according to re-
ports received here this week
through reliable channels.
The names of the seven Jewish
leaders were not disclosed but
the report said that all Jewish
leaders in Germany have been
arrested and are being held as
hostages. Little hope was held
here that any of the arrested
Jews would ever be released.
The report confirmed an earlier
dispatch that Alfred Selbiger
leader of the Hechlautz move-
ment in the Reich, had been shot.
In a special proclamation last
week, made in connection with
the anniversary of the founding
of the Nazi party, Hitler once
again repeated his determination
to destroy the European Jewish
population. Hitler said: "This
I struggle will not end as our ene-
mies plan, with the annihilation
of the Aryan part of humanity,
but with the extinction of Jewry
The Nazi chieftain devoted a
considerable portion of his state-
ment to threats against the Jews,
and, as in the past, blamed the
Jews both for Communism in
the East and Capitalism in the
"We shall break and smash the
might of the Jewish world coali-
tion and mankind, struggling for
its freedom, will win final vic-
tory in this struggle," Hitler
shouted. He later added: "The
Jews believe they are at the very
gate of the milenium, but this
year, like last, they will experi-
ence horrible disillusionment."
The opening of two additional
branch Hebrew schools in the
southwest and northeast sections
of Miami is being announced by
the Jewish Education Associa-
tion of Greater Miami.
The branches will be located
at the Y. M. H. A., 1567 S. W. Fifth
Street, and Temple Israel of Mi-
ami, 137 N. E. 19th Street. Reg-
istration of children will be had
Mondays through Thursdays at
each school from 4 to 7 p. m.,
beginning Monday, March 8.
In addition to the new branches
being opened, the J. E. A. has
been operating Hebrew school
branches at Beth David Congre-
gation, 135 N. W. Third Avenue,
and Beth Jacob, 311 Washington
Avenue, Miami Beach. The J.
E. A. requests that all children
wishing to attend Hebrew school
register at the nearest branch
school to their home.
The full program of the Jew-
ish Education Association will be
publicized within the very near

The appointment of Nat Roth
as chairman of the Permanent

Mr. Blank, in the making of

transported from Oslo to an un-

Most Rv. Josph Skvireckas. Arch-
bishop of Nazi-occupied Lithu-

people not to co-operate in the
Nazi anti-Jewish extermination
program and called upon Lithu-

the sin of lending a hand to the
German atrocities," according to
information received here from
Stockholm this week.
Speaking in the name of the
Church, the Archbishop was
quoted as saying: "I condemn
the hands of those who continue
to share in the murdering of
Jews, persecution of Poles and
peoples of Polish origin. I con- '

people from their homes and who
deport them. Lithuanian offi-

VOLUME 18 NUMBER 10
THE DARK DECADE
The free world has adopted the slogan oi
the "Dark Decade," but only the Jews know
its full and bitter meaning. The 10 years of
Hiderism which have just come to an end con-
stituted an era of tragedy and misery unparal-
leled in modern history. A recital of the out-
rageous crimes committed against the Jewish
people would mount to a crescendo of hor-
ror for which neither emotion nor language
could find adequate expression. The tenth
anniversary of Hitler's coming to power would
indeed be a black day, filled with apprehen-
sions of even more terribble things to come,
were it not for the heartening fact that this
blood-stained page on the calendar coincides
with momentous events on the world's great
battlefields which have brought a turning point
in the war. Looking back upon those years
overflowing with unending sorrow, few of us
can resist the sense of bereavement at the
staggering losses in human life which our
Jewish people suffered since Jan. 30, 1933.
The United Nations and our own state depart-
ment have verified the fact that 2,000,000 Jews
have died or been killed as a result of Nazi
oppression. That is indeed cause for pro-
found grief and lamentation. But we should
find some solace in the fact that during that
decade of doom American Jews devoted them-
selves generously to large-scale rescue action
which directly saved many hundreds of thou-
sands from a similar fate. Perhaps a million
Jews were saved from the Nazi death mahine
as a result of the relief, resettlement and re-
habilitation efforts carried on by the work
oi the Greater Miami Jewish Federation
through the medium of the Joint Distribution
Committee, United Palestine Appeal and the
National Refugee Service. In the field of im-
migration alone these agencies have achieved
a notable record. A total of 125,000 found a
haven in Latin America. During the past four
years, since the establishment of the United
Jewish Appeal for Refugees, Overseas Needs
and Palestine, the American Jews have gone
forward with a unified fund-raising effort un-
precedented in the history of our country.
When crisis after crisis plunged large num-
bers of Jews into desperate circumstances, it
was the Jews of the United States who pro-
vided the urgently needed help. When Hitler
began his destructive march of conquest and
country after country was swallowed up by
the Nazi war machine, the channels of rescue
and emigration were kept open by these
agencies with funds which American Jews
contributed. Throughout the pre-war period
and during three and a half years of war,
American Jews maintained programs of over-
seas relief and rehabilitation, Palestine set-
tlement and upbuilding and refugee aid in
the United States as a great moral and ma-
terial bulwark for the survival of Jews under
fire in many parts of the world. On the occa-
sion of the tenth anniversary of Hitlensm, the
Jewish community of the United States may
well take satisfaction in the manner in which
it strove to snatch a maximum number of Jews
from the Nazi holocaust. Now that the turn-
ing point has been reached in the war against
Hitlerism. American Jewry will occupy a role
of increasing importance in rebuilding of the
Jews liberated by the Allied armies. How-
ever great the devotion and service of the
Jews of the United States during the decade
sf destruction, they must now dedicate them-
selves to an even greater measure of sacri-
fice and concerted effort in the years of re-
construction that lie ahead.
SGT. MEYER LEVTN
Sgt. Meyer Levin, the 26-year-old Jewish
lad from Brooklyn, N. Y., who, with Capt.
Colin Kelly, sank the Japanese battleship
Haruna three days after the day of infamy
at Pearl Harbor, has been killed in action.
America's ace bombardier met his death un-
flinchingly on Jan. 7about 13 months after
his comrade, Captain Kelly, lost his life in
the daring and successful attempt to send
the Haruna to the bottom of the Pacific.
Coptain Kelly and Sergeant Levin were
America's first outstanding war heroes.
There have been many others, and there will
be many more before this war to smash Nazism,
Fascism and Japanism is over. The names
of Kelly and Levin will five forever in the
hearts and minds of the American people.
To Americans, they were much more than
brave fighters who gave their lives to pre
serve their country; they represented the
fighting spirit and close understanding of the
American people at war. Sergeant Levin did
more than sink a Japanese battleship and an
enemy cargo vessel; he helped to buid a feel-
ing of unity and friendship which Axis-paid
agitators will find impossible to tear asunder.
It is the Kellys and Levins, fighting side
by cide on every battle front of the world, who
will bring to America a great and lasting vic-
tory over its enemies. We can best pay our
everlasting debt of gratitude to these great
Americans by dedicating ourselves to the
ideals and principles for which they fought
Their death must not be in vain.

we have just reread in the new 1943 Pocket Book edition ... We

The memory of bombardier Sergeant Meyer Levin, you oughV
to know, will be kept alive by a bomber plane to be built with
funds raised by the Amalgamated Clothing Workers' Union, of
which the Pacific hero's father is a member The plane will
be called the Kelly-Levin Bomber, and that combination of Irish
and Jewish, like the original combination of Colin Kelly and
Meyer Levin, will soon be putting the Japs in their place .
Don't be confused, incidentally, if you continue reading about
heroic exploits by one Sergeant Meyer Levin in the air, but over
Europe For there's a Sergeant Meyer Levinno relation to
the hero we have lostwho has already received the Order of

too many Jewish jokes no longer is justified, as the program has
now been revamped We listened in the other night, and are

is not only completely delightful but lots funnier than before

Faced with the transporta-
tion problem, which is affecting
every individual and organiza-
tion, Sholem Lodge No. 1024,
B'nai B'rith, is experimenting by
calling its next meeting for Sun-
day afternoon, March 7, at 4
p. m., to be held at the Social
Hall of the Miami Beach Jewish
Center, 1415 Euclid Avenue. Mi-
ami Beach. It is the expectation
that members will find it more
convenient and desirable to de-
vote a few of the Sunday after-
noon hours to the disposition of
important lodge matters than to
attend an evening meeting.
A report will be given on Anti-
Defamation League activities by
A. E. Bergland of the Chicago
A. D. L. office, who is in charge
of the Florida regional office
pending the appointment of an-
other regional director to suc-
ceed William I. Boxerman, erst-
while director. The report by
Mr. Bergland is certain to be of
vital interest in view of certain
developments that have recently
caused some concern.
Entertainment will be provided
by soldiers stationed at Miami
Beach. While a definite program
has not as yet been submitted,
ihe diversified talents of our
men in the armed, .forces have
evoked much admiration and ap-
preciation from their audiences,
and members may anticipate be-
ing truly entertained.
The meeting will close in time
for members to keep their din-
Service Men's Duffel Bag
Sholem Lodge will have a bot-
tomless duffel bag, figuratively
at each meeting, into which mem-
bers are invited to drop ciga-
rettes, candy and other delicacies,
?u pe,rhaps sma11 practical
things that will be appreciated
by its members in the service
This will afford the opportunity
tor the lodge to remember its
members in service with Rifts
every so often. More important
to the recipients than the con-
tents of such packages will be
the fact that lodge and brethren
think of themand remember
them in a way that can be visual-
. The creation of this duffel bag
is by popular demand, and while
members are asked to keep re-
plenishing it meeting after meet-
ing, it is not contemplated that
expensive gifts be provided, but
rather such things as may be
welcomed by its members in
Membership Campaign '
The membership campaign
commemorating 100 years of
service by B'nai B'rith is in its
last lap. More than 70 mem-
bers have already been proposed,
and a scant 30 more applications
will carry the drive over the
topthe goal having been set at
100. Sholem Lodge is the richer
for the campaign by the calibre
of the men who have been ad-
mitted within its portals. Many
expressions of appreciation upon
being accepted into the organi-
zation have been received by
the B'nai B'rith office, which is
New blood will flow in the

A Message from the Chairman ot Army-Navy Committee
Dear Friends: Eleven month* have pasted since the Greater Miami and Navy Committee was formed to
cooperate In the national program of the Jewiah Welfare Board. When, at the outbreak of World War II. the
United Statei Army and Navy began to send large numbers of men into the Miami area for training, several
Jewish groups independently of each other undertook to provide special services for the Jewish men in uni-
form. These activities were conducted without any central planning. To remedy the situation and to provide
better facilities, over 100 people, representing a cross-section of the Jewish community, were organized into
the Greater Miami Army and Navy Committee.
Into the comparatively brief period of its existence, the Committee has done much to coordinate various
services to men in the Armed Services. From the outset, the Committee announced that it had no intention
to supersede existing groups, but rather would act at a planning and policy-making body. Today, it sets
the general policy for the following four service men's facilities which are open to Jew and non-Jew alike:
the Young Men's and Young Women's Hebrew Association, the Miami Beach Jewish Center, the Beth Jacob
Service Men's Center, and the Miami Beach Service Men's Center.
home hospitality. The public relations and war records committee interprets the work of the committee to
the general community and compiles lists of Jewish men who have answered the call to the colors. The finance
committee secures funds with which to advance the program. In 1943 the army and navy committee's activi-
ties will be flnancied largely through the Miami Jewish Federation,.
The four agencies under the supervision of the Greater Miami Army and Navy Committee now are serving
approximately 2,000 men weekly. How well these facilities are meeting the spiritual, recreational and social
needs of the service men may be Judged from the unsolicited letters received and the reception our facilities
With appreciation of the role that you, as an interested member of the Jewish, community, are playing In
our program, I am, s *

Julius Gostel, age 25, a Mi-
amian who is the son of Mr. and
Mrs. Gostel, 3360 S. W. Second
Street, a chief signalman in the
United States Navy, was cited for
gallantry in action by Admiral
Nimitz. The citation says that
[Gostel performed "in a most ef-
fiicent manner, insuring fast and
accurate communication between
commander-in-chief and the ships
of the fleet, although exposed to
severe strafing and bombing at-
tack at Pearl Harbor."
"The first we saw of the Japa-
nese attackers was when they
soared in over the harbor," is
the way Gostel tells it. He was
up on the signal tower just south
of the harbor that morning. "In
a few seconds I saw the first
bomb dropped on Fort Island,
where the naval air station is
located, and from then on it was
a mass of catastrophe."
Then, says Gostel, the first
enemy plane was hit. It looked
like a streak of fire racing across
the sky, and it seemed like
everyone stopped fighting for a
second to cheer when it crashed
to the ground.
Gostel's job was to keep in
touch with the fleet and direct
traffic in the channel leading to
the harbor, and "we didn't have
time to think of getting hurt,"
says Gostel. "Everybody was
busy with a job to do and he
did it without thought of in-

FRIDAY. MARCH 5. 1943
HI tell you WHY the
Federation Needs Are Greater
SOIICITOR "Because the need* are much greater and many
of our lame contributors have left Miami or are serving in
tho armed lorcea. those remaining in our community are
asked to give $35,000 more in 1943 than in 1942 to meet the
urgent needs overseas, local army-navy needs and war
time budgets ol our local and national welfare agencies.
YOU "I have already given considerably this year to the
War Cht, and will give to the Red Cross, and 1 buy defense
01ICITOR "American lows have an additional and peculiar
obligation of their own namely, to aid the Jewish victims
0i war and persecution for whom NO non sectarian relief
YOU: "Door the United States government endorse the work
ol the U I A ?"
SOLTCFTOR: "That il correct. Various government leaders,
including President Roosevelt. Attorney General Biddle and
Secretary M the Navy Knox. strongly urge the continuation
o! the rescue activities of the I. D. C U. P. A., and the Na
tional Refugee Service."
YOU "Does the money spent lor immigration
really help people come to this country?"
SOLICITOR: "In 1942 alone over seven thousand seven hiuv
dred refugeee In Europe have been brought to the United
States, South America and Palestine."
YOU How does my money get overseas where it can aid
the victims ol oppression?"
SOLICITOR "Under U. S. Treasury licensee. American dollars
ate put into the frown asset accounts (in this country) of
European neutral states. Eauivalent amounts in foreign
currency are released in the individual countries. In 1942,
treasury licenses totaling $1,500,000 were thus issued to the
1 D. C."
YOU In what countries have lewish refugees been helped?"
SOLICITOR Funds are reaching the 800.000 Polish-Jews ex
iled to Siberia and Asiatic Russia. Money has also gone
to unoccupied France. Portugal. Sweden. Spain. Switzer-
land. Turkey. North Africa. South America."
YOU: I can see where the Jews in Europe need our help,
but why must we contribute to the Jews in Central
SOLICITOR: In Central and South Amertos there are 113.000
refugees. Axis agents are making intensive efforts to stir
up trouble by exploiting the presence of these refugees.
The needs ot these Jews tor food clothing, medical care.
etc.. is $500,000 and must be met if the doors of these coun-
tries are to remain open tor future immigration."
YOU: What are the Palestine funds to be used for?"
SOLICITOR Palestine needs $8 037 527 in 1942 to help estab
lish the newcomers. Over 300.000 persons have found
refuge in Palestine since 1933. It's one of the few countries
where doors remain open to ths oppressd."
YOU: "Hasn't the war prevented overseas relief?"
SOLICITOR: "No. It has meant a shifting of emphasis in the
program of overseas relief, rather than to a yjPJgf-jf
etiort. In 1942. the J. D. C. was able to help 130.000 men.
women and children in 50 countries on hve continent^
While nothing can be done today in Nan Germany, there
still isn't enough money to carry on the work in the lands
in which the agencies are free to operate.
YOU: "Why should money go to help refugees in this
SOLICITOR: "They have proven to be most deserving. Not
a single one has been deported for having become a public
charge. In 1942. the N. R. S. was able to place 1.600 as
doctors, scientists, rabbis, and musicians. 13,500 Jewish
refugees have been resettled in 1,900 cities and towns.
YOU: "What does the money do for me as an American Jew?"
SOLICITOR: "The Greater Miami Jewish Federation con-
tributes generously to all agencies, local and national, en-
gaged in the battle of civic protection for minority groups.
The need to fight the subversive elements is as great today
as before the war. Hospitals, orphanages, cultural insti-
tutions, Jewish youth programs are encouraged to help our
people become better Jews and better and healthier Ameri-
cans. Every Federation agency is doing its share to aid in
the war effort and needs greater support this year."
YOU. "But our local Jewish agencies must be kept alive, too!"
SOLICITOR: "Yes, and by giving to this campaign you sup-
port seven local Jewish agencies including our army-navy
work, our Y. M. H. A., our Jewish Education program, our
Federation itself, which works all year to develop our com-
munity welfare programs.
YOU: "But how can I give at one time enough to support for
