'Eroticism' of Holocaust Concerns Wiesel
Jewish FLoridtan Staff Writer
So much has Elie Wiesel
written about other great Jew-
ish leaders, overall experi-
ences the Holocaust that
he questions whether the fire
of his own soul has been bared.
Wiesel has written 32 books,
and being a person who has
many projects occupying his
time, Wiesel is working on at
least three other books.
One is a volume of lectures
on the Talmud he has given at
the 92nd Street "Y" for the
last 23 years. Another book is
about great Talmudic masters
from Shammai to Hillel and
Rav. Ashi to Ravina.
Wiesel, born in Signet,
Transylvania was raised in a
Two Synagogues Open
Doors To Quake
Ravaged Non-Jews
At least two Jewish congre-
gations in San Francisco have
opened their doors to non-
Jewish groups whose buildings
suffered major damage in the
Oct. 17 earthquake.
About 200 members of the
Korean Presbyterian Church
began worshipping at Temple
Emanu-El Sunday, after their
Fillmore- McAllister structure
was condemned.
Emanu-El offered its facility
to the church, which has a total
of 310 parishioners, as soon as
temple members heard the
Geary Boulevard building was
to be demolished.
"The Hebrew Bible says that
'my house should be a house of
prayer for all people,'" said
Rabbi Robert Kirschner,
whose congregation also
spearheaded a quake relief
drive. "At this time of crisis,
we take that to mean we
should open our doors to our
fellow San Franciscans so
they, too, may worship in their
own way."
After the 1906 quake,
Kirschner said, several local
churches offered their facilit-
ies to Emanu-El, whose build-
ing was virtually destroyed
then. "Nearly a century later,
we have the opportunity to

Hasidic home until he lost his
garents and a sister in the
[olocaust, which is also when
he stopped playing his violin.
The third book, which he is
working out in his mind at the
moment, is to be his memoirs.
Sixty-one years old is not a
young age, Wiesel notes. Since
1945 he has been keeping a
diary, sometimes writing 10
words, sometimes three pages.
The book would be ready in
about two years and would
first come out in French. It
will probably have the word
"celebration' in the title. Most
of his books published in
French have the word "cele-
bration," such as a "Biblical
Celebration," a "Talmudic
"The idea is to celebrate
Judaism, to show that in
Judaism, despite everything,
we celebrate, Wiesel says.
As for his memoirs, Wiesel
says he never speaks about a
book until the book is written -
"I have to carry it with me."
But other than "Night" -
his first book and one of his
favorites which was autobio-
graphical, Wiesel terms his
other works simply "fiction
and non-fiction."
"I believe what makes Jews
Jewish is testimony. We are all
And so the memoirs will
contain "all the things I
haven't said yet. I have not
really spoken about myself. I
have spoken about everyone
"I have to comment on my
books. My work is not a com-
mentary on my life. My life is a
commentary on my works."
Wiesel's eyes, powerful for
their warmth and depth and
conveyance of his soul, search
his interviewer's eyes as he
asks, 'How long have you been
a journalist? Where do you
live? Where are your parents
While his books are taking
shape in his mind, Wiesel con-
tinues to teach two classes a
week in the humanities (philos-
ophy and literature) at Boston
University. He is also an advi-
sor to PhD. students.

Acceptance Of Five-Point Plan 'A Step Forward'
The State Department has
welcomed as "a step forward"
the decision by Israel's Inner
Cabinet to accept Secretary of
State Baker's five-point pro-
posal for an Israeli-Palestinian
The next step is for Egypt,
which "has been working very
closely with the Palestinians, '
to announce its acceptance,
State Department deputy spo-
kesman Richard Boucher said
He indicated that when this
occurs, Baker will invite
Israeli Foreign Minister
Moshe Arens and his Egyptian
counterpart, Esmat Abdel
Meguid, to Washington to dis-
cuss setting up the dialogue.
But Boucher took great
fains to try to separate
srael's acceptance of Baker's
five points from the conditions
set by the Inner Cabinet.
The 9-3 vote in Jerusalem on
Sunday was based on the
"understanding" that the
United States provide assur-
ances that Israel would not
find itself engaged in negotia-
tions with the Palestine Liber-
ation Organization.
Boucher denied that Israel
had set conditions, maintain-
ing the Israelis talked about
"We know that both Israel
and Egypt are likely to request
certain clarifications,"
Boucher said.
The United States is pre-
pared to discuss these "assur-
ances, assumptions or clarifi-
cations, as long as they are
consistent with the spirit of
the five points and the process
they are designed to facili-
Boucher said that while
Egypt is expected to seek its
own assurances, the Palestini-
ans have not so far asked for
any clarifications, either pri-
vately or publicly.

announcement from Warsaw
by several Jewish individuals
declaring their intention "to
conserve and preserve the
decaying buildings and exhib-
its at Auschwitz" would seem
to be an honorable objective.
Association of the name of
Ambassador Ronald Lauder
with that project would lend
credibility to its noble purpose.
From my own visits and expe-
riences in Europe, I know
firsthand that Lauder has
made notable contributions in
helping rebuild synagogues
and provide cultural centers
for East European Jews,
among other acts of generos-
But the announcement of the
Auschwitz preservation pro-
ject has triggered a behind-
the-scenes discussion among
Jewish leadership which is yet
to surface. The issues have to
do with process and timing.
Auschwitz is not a syna-
gogue nor a cultural center. It
is the anguished moral inheri-
tance of all Jews of the 20th
century, and of the genera-
tions that will follow.
A wide range of Jewish lead-
ers has told me that no one
involved in launching this his-
toric project has consulted
them. None of the major Jew-
ish survivor groups, who
include numerous Auschwitz
survivors, were invited to
share in advance their views.
It would be tragic, indeed, if
this sensitive project were to
deteriorate into a public con-
flict among Jews over such
real issues as:
What should be the nature of
the conservation project? Is it
at all wise to remodel the gas
chambers and bunkers or allow
them to stand as raw testimo-
nies to their original Nazi bru-
talities? Is there a danger that
it will made into a shrine the
very objection that Jews held
against the Catholic convent at
Auschwitz? Will it become a
tourist site with manicured
gardens and picnic grounds,
much as Dachau has become?
Represei tative Jewish lead-
ers, espec illy from the Holo-
caust sur ivor groups, have
not only a right but a duty to
make their views known on
how they wish to see Aus-
chwitz preserved for the
It is not too late to begin that
process of responsible discus-
sion and decision-making that
will affect the neshama of
world Jewry for generations.

The Baker Plan In the flurry of press dispatches from the Middle East this week, Israel appears to be saying "yes" and Arafat seems to be saying "no" to the Baker Plan. The five points of the American Secretary of State seem simple enough, but the inner fightings among both the Israel Government and the PLO have clouded the issue. Fortunately, Prime Minister Shamir has withstood the opposition of three hard-line members of his Likud Party to accept in principle the American plan to implement Shamir's own proposal for elections in the territories. The Labor Party has to date resisted suggestions that it withdraw from the coalition government in Jerusalem, and that too is helping Israel in the public relations arena. It is still too early to tell if all of this dialogue leads to meaningful negotiations on the process necessary to give the Palestinians a voice in their own destiny. In the wake of the obviously "leaded" story of alleged Israeli supply of nuclear assistance to South Africa, the Jewish State's official position should help reinforce traditional American support for Israel.
Why Shamir Agreed To Accept Baker's Plan
Prime Minister Yitzhak Sha-
mir's nearly unqualified accep-
tance of U.S. Secretary of
State James Baker's five-point
proposal for an Israeli-
Palestinian dialogue has
clearly enraged the hard-line
faction in his Likud bloc.
But it has also given political
pundits here a feast of specula-
The question being asked is
why Shamir, who prides him-
self on his leathery toughness,
backed off from a position to
which he had held firmly dur-
ing weeks of long-distance
jousting with the Bush admin-
The answers offered range
from a desire to keep the
Likud-led coalition govern-
ment intact awhile longer to a
notion that the Palestinians
themselves can be counted on
to wreck the process, thereby
getting Israel off the hook.
The Inner Cabinet's 9-3 vote
Sunday to accept the Baker
plan was indeed a retreat by
Shamir, given the importance
diplomacy attaches to the
nuance of language.
Israel's acceptance was
made contingent "on the
understanding" that the
United States would soon pro-
vide assurances that it will rule
out any Israeli negotiations
with the Palestine Liberation
It was understood there
would be U.S. assurances on
other Israeli concerns. But an
"understanding" was not
what Shamir had fought for
this past month.
He had insisted until last
week that Israel's acceptance
of Baker's five points would be
"conditional" on certain U.S.

In the world of diplomacy,
there is a vast difference
between the two. As Vice
Premier Shimon Peres, Sha-
mir's Labor coalition partner
pointed out, setting conditions
would have been tantamount
to rejection of the American
Labor was perfectly content
to accept Baker's points with-
out amendment. A Likud
rejection could have precipi-
tated a potentially fatal gov-
ernment crisis.
According to the political
analysts, that was one factor
behind Shamir's decision.
The prime minister and his
aides, they say, were gen-
uinely worried that Peres
would be able to put together a
narrowly based, Labor-led
governing coalition with some
of the ultra- Orthodox parties.
Likud was seeking the same
hedge against collapse of the
unity government. But its
talks with the Agudat Yisrael
party were going badly.
Agudah is at the point of
seceding from the coalition
unless its demands for conces-
sions in the religious sphere
are met. Should it defect, its
five Knesset votes would be
available to support a no-
confidence motion against the
present government and join a
narrow government under
Another religious faction,
Degel HaTorah, is considered
firmly in Labor's camp, and
Likud fears the larger Shas
party might jump on the Labor
bandwagon if other ultra-
Orthodox parties did.
Another possible motive for
Shamir's decision was that he
and his close associates
Foreign Minister Moshe Arens
among others had concluded
that a showdown with Likud's
hard-line dissenters is unavoid-
It is widely admitted in the
Shamir-Arens camp that the
prime minister made a grave
mistake at the July 5 meeting
of Likud's Central Committee,

demands that he attach rigid
conditions to his initiative tor

FAU Library
Receives Endowment
The Harris and Bertha Myers Room in
the Florida Atlantic University
Library has been created through an
endowment by Boca Raton resident
Herman Herat, Jr., in honor of his
grandparents. The room will house a collection
of Judaica books and music belonging to the late
Rabbi Abraham J. Rose and dating back to the
Herat's grandfather, Harris Myers, helped
found Temple Beth Israel in 1858 in Portland,
Oregon, the first synagogue in the Pacific
Northwest. The current rabbi of Temple Beth
Israel, Rabbi Emmanuel Rose, is the grandson
of Rabbi Abraham Rose.
"Temple Beth Israel was always a part of our
lives... I was Bar Mitzvah'd there in 1923," said
Herat, who was raised in Portland where he
received a degree in political science from Reed
College in 1931. "I am happy to be able to
support a library collection in Boca Raton which
connects to my boyhood memories of Oregon."
Herat, who also holds an honorary doctoral
degree of literature from William Penn Univer-
sity, Oskaloosa, Iowa is a writer with 11 books
on history and philately to his credit. He
currently writes articles on stamp collecting for
magazines in England, Australia and South
Africa. Herat and his wife, Ida, have resided in
Boca Raton for 17 years.

weakened Shamir's political
clout and strengthened the
hands of his chief rivals: Ariel
Sharon, David Levy and Yitz-
hak Moda'i.
The three say Shamir's
pledges of last July have been
"flagrantly breached," and
they vow vengeance.
Shamir believes he and the
party faithful can face down
his detractors in his own good
U.S. pressure was another
possible factor. According to
the pundits, it was becoming
increasingly insistent and dis-
Shamir and his aides real-
ized, perhaps belatedly, that
Baker and President Bush had
taken his elections initiative
more seriously than, perhaps,
some of Israel's policy-makers
themselves did.
At any rate, the U.S. admin-
istration invested a good deal
of effort and prestige in the
proposal, which the Israeli
Cabinet endorsed last May 14.
They were therefore irritated
that Israel's recalcitrance
might bring their efforts to
After mighty efforts to
secure the best possible word-
ing from his viewpoint, Shamir
gave in to American pressure.
According to this theory, he
sensed that Israel's position
would not be especially strong
in an all-out confrontation with
Washington at this time.
Analysts say he probably cal-
culates he can make his stand
against the PLO's involvement
in the peace process somewhat
farther down the road.
Therefore he prefers to go
along with Baker now, keeping
Israel's guard up against sub-
stantive encroachments on its
basic positions later, so the
speculation goes.
Finally, according to some
analysts, the prime minister
believes, and even hopes, that
the Arab side will balk and
bring the whole risky enter-
prise to a halt.
Some in Likud are convinced
that the "assumptions"
around which the Inner Cab-
inet hedged its acceptance of
the Baker plan are enough to
deter the PLO from giving its
tacit assent to a dialogue with
Israel and to the proposed
elections in the West Bank and
Gaza Strip.
The flaw in that thinking is
that the Palestinians and
Egyptians are demanding
their own "assurances" from
the United States to counter-
balance what Washington
gives Israel.
Within the realm of what
former Secretary of State
Henry Kissinger often
referred to as "constructive
ambiguity," there may yet be
room for an Israeli-Palestinian
But if that does take place,
Israeli observers are unani-
mous in predicting that a crisis
will erupt when the talks open,
and it may pervade them for
the duration.
Peres hinted as much after
Sunday's Cabinet meeting,
when he said the next step
now would be the composition
of the Palestinian delegation,
"which no doubt will cause
problems. If it doesn't, I shall
be pleasantly surprised," the
Labor Party leader remarked.
Meanwhile, Likud's rebel
triumvirate Sharon, Levy
and Moda'i had to be con-
tent with invective.
They referred to the prime
minister as the "rotten apple"
and his young ministerial sup-
porters Dan Meridor, Ronni
Milo and Ehud Olmert as
"worms with big appetites,
who gnaw from the rotten

The first American-trained
woman physicist to win the
Nobel Prize addressed collea-
gues in the medical field about
a subject that has become for
her a "new mission."
"Radiation and Society."
"People have what I like to
call a phobic fear of radia-
At that point Rosalyn S.
Yalow is asked by a reporter
about the realities of a nuclear
"At the moment, the Holo-
caust, is smoking," says Dr.
Yalow. "Yet the EPA, (Envir-
onmental Protection Agency),
when they talk about (up to)
40,000 deaths are due to radon
poisoning but hvpothetically
related to the enhanced effect
of radon in smokers...they are
not telling you in the absence
of smoking there is no good
evidence among uranium min-
ors that lung cancer is induced
at the levels they are starting
to call potentially dangerous.
Yalow addressed colleagues
in the medical field at Broward
General Hospital in Fort Laud-
erdale about "what is known
and what is not known" about
the biological effects of low-
level radiation.
Radon is a gas that comes
from the decay of the uranium
family, says Yalow, whose hus-
Dr. Rosalyn S. Yalow
band is a physicist she married
while attending graduate
school at the University of
"It has always been with us
and even in energy-efficient
homes the level has not
increased significantly. On the
other hand, smoking has."
Concerns about radon have
gone from creeping into a
home from the earth unde-
rneath to the field of nuclear
medicine, in which Yalow has
been working for 40 years.
She won the Nobel Prize for
development of a technique
called "Radioimmmunoas-
say." She uses radioactive
material and immunologic
methods to assay (measure)
body fluids. Before the tech-
nique was developed, sub-
stances could only be meas-
ured in many ounces of blood.
The method Yalow devel-
oped with her late associate,
Dr. Solomon Beraon who died
five years before Yalow
received the award enabled
fluids to be measured by just a
few drops.
Yalow and Beraon had first
used the technique to measure
insulin and found that the
adult diabetic, unlike the juve-
nile diabetic, had adequate
amounts of insulin which led
to the use of hypoglycemic
agents (blood sugar-Towering
pills) instead of insulin.
"For what nuclear medicine
does, the diagnosis does, other
methods do not do," says
Yalow, the daughter-in-law
of an Orthodox rabbi, answers
a question about her views of
the compatibility of science
and religion with a story.
"My father-in-law was a
very clever man. He would say
if the Almighty could make the
world, he could also make it
with the artifacts that we sci-
entists are discovering that
make us think it's a few billion
years old.
"As a scientist, I believe that
the origin of the world is in
billions of years."
