To Unseat
Israel at UN
By YITZHAK RABI
UNITED NATIONS (JTA) Foreign Minister
Yitzhak Shamir of Israel arrived in New York Monday to
represent Israel at the 35th session of the General
assembly which opened Tuesday. Before leaving Israel, he
said he would be surprised if the Arab states did not try to
expel Israel from the UN during this session.
"But we hope that such an initiative will be defeated,
even with the present structure of the UN." This was a
reference to the automatic majority of Arab, Third World
and Communist bloc states which support anti-Israeli
resolutions.
Kol Nidre Friday Eve
Tom Kippur Historically
By DR. SIDNEY GREENBERG
Yom HaKippurim is liberation day. In
I the jubilee year, the sounding of the
s/io/ar at day's end "proclaimed liberty
throughout the land for all its inhabi-
tants" [Lev. 25:10). Slaves went free,
and land was restored to its original
owners, the families of Israel. Similarly,
every year the Day of Atonement brings
I freedom from the crushing isolation of
Iguilt. "For on this day, He atones for
lyou, to purify you; you will be purified
Ifrom all your sins, before God" (Lev.
|16:30).
Yom Kippur does more than lift the
Iburden of evil. Forgiveness alone would
leave the individual still alienated. This
is a day of atonement. Atonement means
restoration to the wholeness of com-
munity and roots. It means a new recon-
ciliation and a new unification of
impulse and values, of individual and
community, of the human and God.
Yom Kippur is a day of dazzling
paradoxes. Israel stands before God,
united as a community of sinners
publicly admitting the universal evil in
all yet expecting and experiencing
forgiveness and the purging of guilt
through confession and mutual ac-
ceptance. Giving themselves over to the

400,000 Israelis Sow in U.S.
By BORIS SMOLAR
About 400,000 Israelis
b presently residing in the
Nted States. Most of
tiem are lured to this
wintry by the American
lollar, eager to become
[rich Americans" like the
American tourists they see
"Israel in the best hotels

Ml.
At least two studies are
|ow being conducted in the
> S. to determine what has
fompted Israelis to move
this country. Their
number has increased
particularly since 1973. The
Israelis living in the U.S.
comprise people in all walks
of life from European to
North African immigrants
who could not adjust to
conditions in Israel as well
as "sabras," native-born
Israelis.
AMONG THEM are also some
who were economically well off in
Israel. The studies attempt not
only to establish the reasons for
them leaving Israel but also to
analyze how they have adjusted
to life in America, the op-
portunities they have found here,
their reactions to the American
Jewish community and the gap
existing between them and the
American Jewish community.
They know that they are not
popular with Jews in this
country, and they keep aloof from
Jewish communal life.
Their growing number in New
York, Los Angeles and other
cities- is developing into a major
issue. Many American Jews ask
how it is that the Israeli
government permits them to
emigrate at a time when the
Jewish State needs all the
manpower it can muster for its
security and economic
development.
Israeli diplomats explain that
Israel is not a Communist
country from where citizens are
not permitted to emigrate. Free

ISRAEL'S Ambassador to the
UN, Yehuda Blum, underlined
this concern at a press conference
here. He said this year's General
Assembly is likely to be "one of
the most unpleasant" General
Assemblys as far as Israel is
concerned. He warned of the
likelihood of a move by the Arabs
and their supporters to suspend
Israel from the General
Assembly by revoking its
credentials to participate in the
session.
Shamir, who will address the
Assembly Sept. 29, devoted the
major part of this week to
meetings with Administration
officials in Washington and was
scheduled to meet with UN
Secretary General Kurt
Waldheim later this week at UN
headquarters.
Next week, Shamir is
scheduled to meet with at least 20
other foreign ministers attending
the General Assembly, including
representatives of European,
Asian and Latin American
countries which have diplomatic
relations with Israel.
AT HIS press conference here,
Blum said that Israel will come
under fire not only in the general
debate but in the seven com-
mittees of the General Assembly.
He recalled that since the
beginning of this year, nine
meetings of the Security Council
were devoted to Israel and said
that this year would be a year "of
concentrated offensive against
Israel orchestrated by the
Palestine Liberation
Organization."
Blum said the purpose of the
PLO and its supporters is to
gradually "delegitimize" Israel in
the international community.
The Israeli envoy also warned of
the likelihood of a move by the
Arabs and their supporters to
suspend Israel from the General
Assembly by revoking its
credentials to participate in this
year's session.
Blum said the climax of the
Arab offensive against Israel is
targeted for Nov. 15 and
thereafter. Many of the anti-
Israel resolutions adopted
against Israel since the beginning

Number 31
A Vote for Sen. Stone
What with his record during his first six years in
that high office, one would have thought that U.S.
Sen. Richard Stone hardly needed a boost up via our
editorial support in the primaries last week despite a
field of 11 candidates who sought to unseat him.
It seemed to us that both our readers and the
State of Florida in general would recognize the extent
of his legislative accomplishments despite the dif-
ficulties of a first term that a freshman Senator must
endure. In short order, Sen. Stone rose to the
chairmanship of the Senate Foreign Relations Com-
mittee's Subcommittee on Middle Eastern Affairs.
Whether or not they did is a matter of pure
speculation now that we must face the fact that, in
Dade County, one of the strongest sources of his
"natural" support, only 27 percent of the county's
registered voters bothered to go to the polls.
Furthermore, Sen. Stone edged out his nearest
opponent, Florida Insurance Commissioner Bill
Gunter, by a mere 12,000 votes in about one million
votes cast statewide among six Democrats.
It is these grim statistics that now urge us to
endorse the candidacy of Sen. Stone and to recom-
mend him to our readers, as well as to voters
throughout the State of Florida.
We can no longer afford to take for granted what
seemed to us at the outset the obvious. The Senator's
voting record is not only satisfactory but laudable.
We urge Floridians to go to the polls and
support Sen. Stone in the Oct. 7 runoff.
The Kol Nidre Prayer
We are reminded this Yom Kippur eve that,
almost as familiar as the Shema, the Kol Nidre
prayer is the most serious in the entire Machzor. In
it, we prepare ourselves for the most challenging of
the Days of Awe, Yom Kippur, the hour when the
High Priest entered the Holy of Holies and there
revealed the Divine Name.
It is in Leviticus, chapter 16, from which we read
in the Torah on Yom Kippur morning, that we are
told of the role of the High Priest: to atone for him-
self, for his household and for the whole Assembly of
Israel.
But each individual Jew meets his Maker on his
own terms, as well, and entreats Him to be written
into the Book of Life before judgments are made and
its pages sealed for the year ahead.
If this is the most profound moment of all the
moments of Awe, its tension is lessened by the belief
that we imagine on Yom Kippur that the scales of
justice are exactly in balance, and that the world is
judged according to its majority.
It is the goodness of mankind that can help us
overcome our individual weaker natures. Atonement
though we must make on our own, it is the Assembly
of Israel that is saved to bring us a Happy New Year

Special-Interest: Fact oflM
v.
REMEMBER way back? Re-
member when the scandalous rise
in automobile insurance rates
was making front page news
practically every day? Remember
when we talked about this ripoff
in much the same way that we
talk about oil industry profits
today?
Insurance has since taken a
back seat to oil. The reason is
clear: oil goes beyond the crank-
case. As energy, oil and the oil
ripoff affect our lives, our fortune
and, politically, even our sacred
honor. Insurance does not.
Still, insurance has been back
in the news of late at least in an
ancillary way, what with the run-
off between Sen. Richard Stone
and Florida State Insurance
Commissioner Bill Gunter.
JUST BEFORE Rosh Hasha
nah, with the primaries still
before us, I wrote in this column
that the American Jewish com-
munity has been, for generations,
going contrary to a growing
American tide.
I said that we were so fixed on
the melting pot. that we regarded
as dangerous any reference to a
"Jewish vote" or a "Jewish
bloc." Those who used such
terms, we attacked as bigots
as persons who refuse to come to
terms with Jewish integration
into the American mainstream.
Indeed, we saw such persons as
purveyors of the poisonous
political principle that Jews have
a double loyalty, a dual allegiance
which gives priority to their
Judaism first and their Amer-
icanism second.
NOW COMES a time in the
affairs of the nation when multi-
ethnic and bilingual sociology
pervades the brew in the Amer-
ican melting pot, when it is
fashionable to divide out the
elements of the brew to cater
to them, to offer hosannas to
their special interests.
Note the manner in which
Miami is being sliced asunder on
the butcher block of this new
sociology a community
divided among black, Haitian
and Cuban interests, with
"Anglos," that revolting term
reserved for what sociology
would under different circum-
stances call "others," thus far
standing aghast at the circum-
ference of the slicing, dazed, still
attempting to discover and then
digest what is happening to them
and to their future.
What 1 said in this column a
few weeks ago was that Jews, as
"Anglos" (oh. what p mockery of
history!!, must forget their
melting pot past and adapt
themselves to frank political
special-interest politics. They
must come to see their Judaism
ui the same way that the oil
industry sees its petro-cash flow.
Or that Little Havana saw the so-
called freedom flotilla when its
residents harassed the com-
munity night after night into the
wee hours with their glaring
headlights and blaring horns, the
annunciation of their new
national immigration policy.
AND IF the object of some in
the runoff will be to vote against
BUI Gunter because Gunter has
done nothing for the automobile
owner to temper the greed of the
insurance companies, I advise
that the object of others must be
to vote for Sen. Stone precisely
because he is Jewish and
precisely because he is chairman
of the Senate Foreign Relations
Committee's Subcommittee on
Middle Eastern Affairs.
Is this parochialism hard to
swallow? Perhaps it is, for
special-interest groups and
special-interest voting are in their
way as narrow-minded and
greedy as the oil and insurance
moguls and the international
financiers who have had a hand,
together with the biggest special-
interest group of them all, the
United States Congress, in
making usury a cornerstone of
the new American economics.
But only hypocrisy would
argue that this parochialism is
impractical, or even immoral. Or
only the craven view of some
Jewish civil libertarian organiza-
tions still dedicated to their
astigmatic notion of America as a
pot of pabulum, when it is in fact
becoming increasingly Latin,
increasingly Roman Catholic,
increasingly black: in short,
increasingly sliced into the seg-
ments of special-interest groups
that demand their ethnic iden-
tities as a principle of their being,
and that no longer submit to
accepting the status of anony-
mous ingredients in a mythic
American stew.
IF PRESIDENT Carter and
Gov. Reagan could run from one
appearance before a B'nai B'rith
convention to a second ap-
pearance before an Italian Amer-
ican convention to a third ap-
pearance before a Polish Amer-
ican convention, all in the space
of two short weeks, why not
frankly give up the ghost and
accept the new sociology?
If they can fractionate their
candidacies into multi-ethnic
needs, to needs beyond and at
times at odds with a united
American need, then why resist
the fashion?
American Jews who refuse,
who continue to live in the past,
merely contribute to a weakened
American Jewish political
status .
A LETTER last week from the
American Jewish Committee
states that the organization
opposes the antibilingualism
referendum (in Dade County.
Fla.l and calls for an even greater
inter-ethnic understanding and
communication among the
diverse groups that comprise
Miami."
My late friend. Judge Harold
Spaet. would have observed.
"IImm xa,tz bully." In line
with what I have just said about
special-interest groups, it does
seem that I should agree with the
American Jewish Committee on
Us face. My own position on
special-interest is after all in the
good old American tradition of
Jamesian pragmatism what-
ever works is right.
There can be no doubt that bi-
linguahsm is a special-interest
which, like all the others, imposes
the will of the minority on the
majority. If it passes the prag-
matic test, how can I gainsay it?
BUT THE problem is not so
much the American Jewish Com-
mittee s pronouncement on bi-
lingualism as it is with the Com-
mittee s rationale for the pro-
nouncement. And especially the
hauteur of its tone, which 'gam
bully punctures in a delicious
uroucho Marx way:
"Bound together by a trau-
maVc uP-oting from their native

borhoods and found aol*aJ

the main stages of "Aliyah to
Hawaii": the J930's, post World
War 11 and the jet-age.
Early Jewish settlers arrived in
Hawaii in the 18.r)0's, and the first
Jewish wedding and first Jewish
funeral are both said to have
taken place in 1H79. By 1903. the
tirst Hebrew congregation was
established. In 1980, the B'nai
B'rith Lodge was formed By
1938, there was a Jewish
Community Center established
(but there is no longer one there).
The llawaiii Jewish Welfare
Fund was organized in 1956.
These periods represent the
interest growing in the Pacific-
prior to World War II. the ret urn
of the military to permanently
settle there following the war and
the jumbo jets bringing a new
wave of immigration.

grandmother had prepared a
delicious feast worthy of
breaking the fast. Brothers,
sisters, aunts and uncles, and
cousins all sat down to break
bread together in a flurry of
noise, excitement and confusion.
I am sad to say that those days
are now past. My grandparents
are now dead, and their children
and grandchildren dispersed. I
am saddened that my own
children will probably not share a
similar family experience. In fact,
they have yet to celebrate a
holiday with their grandparents,
or aunts and uncles.
MY CHILDREN are not the
exception. They are the rule. The
day of the extended family is
gone. Rarely do grandparents,
their children and their children's
children sit down together at the
same table or share a simcha. It
is for this reason that today we
may saw that "All Jews are
responsible for one another"
more than ever before.
We need each other to enhance
our celebrations and share our
joys. We need each other for
comfort in times of sorrow. We
need each other to be the

Tampa is a relatively close knit
Jewish community. During my
short time here, I have been
pleased to see that the
synagogues, Federation, Jewish

together and not apart from each

the Jews of Tampa help each

IN THIS season of renewal, let
us add one more prayer to all of
the others we will be reciting. Let

Memoir of a Community
'pRom OestRuction and Redemption
By JUDITH MANELIS
I AM HOME now, away from the destruction
and the redemption. I feel transformed as I knew
I would, but so totally that I find it hard to
assimilate all that I feel. Fifteen davs together in
our small tightly knit group of 18 our Chai
Group. Fifteen days of feeling mv Jewishness as
never before. Fifteen days that created a
closeness so meaningful and so profound that the
swiftness of the separation at Kennedy Airport
left me shaken.
My return to my own familv. mv own home.
mv own universe has been painful, "i am like an
astronaut reentering the earth's orbit from outer
space. Last night I felt hurt forcibly cut off
from a group of individuals who had become mv
family and my world.
It is now 4 a.m., and I am sitting in mv office
at home trying to sort out all that I have felt
during these 15 days. Faces, so many faces pass
before my eyes, faces etched into my mind and
consciousness.
I SEE PINCH AS. caretaker of Warsaw's
Jewish cemetery, wiping awav a tear as he
waved good-by to our departing'group. I see Mr.
Jakubowicz. president of the Jewish Community
of Cracow, with his gentle humor standing in the
Remo Synagogue of Cracow explaining the
history of the synagogue and joking easily amid
the living dead.
I see iht- young Jewish student preparing for
Poland s Yiddish theater in a class made up
almost entirely of Gentiles. How ironic to see
non-Jews carrying on the decades-old tradition of
Yiddish theater in Poland because no Jews
remain to give it life.

last member of the Hevra Kadisha (burial society) of
Warsaw, and his son care for some 500,000 graves in
the famous Gezia Cemetery of Warsaw. A t the end of
the cemetery is a mass grave of thousands of victims
from the Warsaw Ghetto.

preserve the memory of Jewish life in Europe
before the Nazi cataclysm.
BUT IT IS another war. a war against time,
for the researchers are middle-aued and old. And
soon there will be no Jew left in Poland to
research and remember.
The building was cold, very cold. I don't know
if it was simply the lack of heat or the emotional
coldness that I felt, the chill of knowing that I
stood in a room surrounded by the remains of
some four million Jews of Poland and
surrounding areas.
1 -ee the face of the man who guided us into
the Warsaw synagogue, the only one remaining
from the 300 synagogues and shtibelackh that
once stood in Warsaw. Was it my imagination or
did the sunken eyes and heavily lined face tell
me the story of his suffering'.'
And Jewish children I did not see one
Jewish child in Poland.
I WAS ANGRY in Warsaw. 1 was very angry.
How dare they rebuild that city the buildings
on Twarda and Mila Streets where the Warsaw
Ghetto once stood. How dare they use the names
ot Jewish martyrs and writers on their street
Mjrns. How dare they cover over everything so
nicely to make it seem that we never lived there
at all Givi us a monument and a couple of street
signs, and everything will be all right. Snuff out
the lives of over one and a half million Jewish
children and adults, and call it urban renewal.
I jogged in the snows of Warsaw. And as I ran
down the street along the park. I reaffirmed my
own life. I am alive. I thought. I am breathing I
am running God damn you Nazis. You didn't
get me... although you burned my uncles and
aunts in the synagogues of Lithuania and shot
my cousins to death in the dark pit of Babi Yar.
We took the plane to Cracow. It was funny
getting a ride to the airplane sitting only a few
yards away from the terminal. We all laughed as
we would at many points along the way. at silly,
nonsensical things. We created humor as we
stood on the brink of destruction. And we were
afraid for ourselves amid the horror and stench
of death. But we never spoke of ourselves then.
Only later did some of us express the thought
that it could have been us, our children, our
parents.
CRACOW IS a beautiful city. Yes. let us walk
its streets and visit its landmarks. Let us see the
university that tried so hard to exclude Jews, the
university whose few Jewish students were
tormented and reviled. The city of Cracow was
not destroyed by the Nazis, our guide said. Its
buildings were left intact, its Polish culture
spared. Only a little matter of the Jews, I
thought. They are gone now. But the buildings
are there, and Polish culture moves along.

I mother and father.
The snow continued to fall piling up higher
and higher, virgin snow, the first snow fall of the
year. That was what they had told us in Warsaw
and again in Cracow. We joked that morning
before we left. We had brought the weather with
us. we said. The 18, the Chai group. But the
whiteness only added to the horror of knowing
that beneath the very ground we walked were
buried Jewish bodies that we walked on holy
ground, that we could have said kaddish on
every inch of soil in that damned place.
WE WERE GLAD it was snowing. Somehow
the harshness of the weather was fitting. We
wanted to feel the cold. We wanted to struggle
through the snow. We wanted to suffer. It would
never make us one with the Jews of Auschwitz.
It would never allow us to feel their pain, their
sense of desperation, their loneliness, their death.
Nothing would. But it brought us closer to their
spirits.
We walked mechanically from building to
building. The groups of Polish tourists always
close by, sometimes slightly ahead, sometimes
behind.' sometimes mixing with our group for
I just a moment. They eyed us suspiciously. We
I wen obviously foreigners. Did they also
recognize that we were Jews come to see their
shame'.'
The Jewish pavilion was a mockery. The
exhibitions were poorly kept. No English signs
were used. The audio-visual displays were either
mil working or the lilms skipped and were
difficult to see. The door was opened just for us.
Other pavilions were open to the public.
ON AN AVERAGE day when no Jewish
tourist visited Auschwitz, the building would be
closed. The locked door seemed to say Only
Jews cure how many Jews died in Auschwitz.
Only Jews are interested in mourning for the
lives o| other Jews.
\t i he end of our visit to Auschwitz, we saw a
propaganda film on the Holocaust. The word
Itw was thrown in. almost as an afterthought
;i> it to say. "They too died here." They were
<>ne ol the many groups whose bodies became
rings of twirling smoke rising up from the
chimneys of the crematoria. Only one of the
many groups whose bodies froze in the harsh
inters of Poland. Only one of the many groups
w ho breathed in the Zyclon B gas in the crowded
gas chambers. They too died here.
More than one and a half million Jews met
their deaths in Auschwitz, but they "too" died
there.
. THE VISIT to Auschwitz was over. It was
time now to travel the few miles to Birkenau, the
sister camp down the road where most of the real
death and destruction took place.
The snow had not let us, the bus labored on.
We passed the railroad depot where Jews were

visibility difficult. The bus came to a stop. We

snow or perhaps few came to the real scene of
death. The gate was locked. A lone guard sat in
an office in the camp's main entrance building.
OUR GUIDE told us it was impossible to
walk the half mile to the memorial to lay the
wreath and say our prayers. The snow, he said,
was too high. Perhaps we would be satisfied
simply climbing to the top of the watch tower
and viewing the camp from above, not at-
tempting the long walk to the memorial.
We said no. NO! We would not be satisfied.
We had come too far. NO! We would not return
to the bus. We would not accept the verdict. We
would not turn our heads. We would not let the
blizzard deter us. We would walk if necessary in
the snow which was now up to our knees.
Our guide finally agreed to ask the guard for
permission to drive into the grounds of the camp
so we might take the circuitous path that led
around the camp to the memorial. The road, he
said, was open.
BUT FIRST we climbed the steps to the
tower. Stretching before us, barely visible in
swirling snow flakes, were the barracks that
housed the inmates. Some were intact. But many
had been destroyed and only their chimneys
remained standing in eerie silence, each alone in
a mound of snow like disembodied buildings
. like monuments to the dead like a child's
first attempts at building brick piled on
brick, with no distinctive shape.
Only these chimneys were not made by
children. And they had been surrounded by real
buildings made of wood, too fragile to keep out
the winter winds, the freezing temperatures, the
harsh realities of death next door.
We walked to a nearby barracks to look inside.
Again the horrible feeling of deja vu. There stood
row upon row of three-tier wooden bunk beds,
primitive by any standards. And suddenly a
pkture of emaciated inmates hanging over the
sides of these beds came into focus.
WAS I REALLY here? I sensed a distance
between myself and what I was seeing, a
distance caused by a terrible fear spreading
through my body like a fever. The beds were
empty, but in my mind's eye I filled them up
with emaciated Jewish bodies, filled them up
with the hopeless and the doomed-for-death.
We examined the chimney and heating
system. A crude Nazi joke. The heat would rise
quickly through the chimney and leave the
barracks, providing little if any heat. Even
sitting on the long cement platform encasing the
pipes or huddling next to it would not warm the
body in the ferociousness of a Polish winter.
A Nazi mockery. Gas chambers that looked
like showers. Chimneys that provided no heat.
WE LEFT the barracks and got on the bus.
The driver drove inside the gate. The bus moved
slowly through the heavy snow along the
roadway toward the memorial which could not be
seen. The snow seemed to be getting higher and
hinher forming a natural barrier, keeping us from
seeing the railroad tracks, the memorial, the
camp itself.
Finally, the bus stopped, unable to move
further. We would indeed have to walk the rest
of the way to the monument. Ironically, the bus
had stopped next to one of the crematoria, its
walls broken, its machinery stilled forever, no
longer able to do its hideous work.
A dream? A nightmare? Eighteen Jews
symbol of Chai life, sitting in that desolate
plare. our bus stuck next to one of four
crematoria which burned the bodies of over one
and a half million Jews.
WE TOOK OUR flowers and began walking
slowly through the snow in mostly single file
trying to walk in the footsteps of those who
walked in front of us, like children at play. Only
we were not at play. We were adults walking the
snow covered, blood soaked soil of Birkenau to
lay flowers on two of the 19 plaques which
describe the horrors of that place. Two plaques
in Hebrew and Yiddish.
As we walked toward the memorial, a young
woman about the age of 18 or 20 passed us. She
was on her way home and took a short cut
through the concentration camp, walking by
empty barracks, across the railroad track
close to the crematorium. What thoughts, if any,
ever came to her mind as she took that solitary
walk? Who would choose to pass through the
desolation and nightmare of Birkenau on any
errand save ours?
The 19 plaques were covered with snow. Only
Sam Abramson, our Polish expert from UJA
who had been to Birkenau before, knew where to
find the Yiddish and Hebrew plaques. We wiped
away the snow, placed our flowers on the ground
and proceeded with the brief service I had
prepared. 1 had chosen the simple words of
(ierda Klein. Holocaust survivor and author, to
l>egin.
"YOU ARE GOING to Auschwitz. The
thought chills my being. My mother was only 42
years old. My father was kind, wise and strong.
My friends were gay, chattering, bubbly girls.
That was my world. It perished there."
The wind howled. The snow continued
unabatedly. The cold bit and chaffed our faces
and froze our tears.
"I want to remember them as I knew them.
They would have been glad that you came, that
you cared, that you wept for what we all lost
there ..."
After Gerda's words, a poem and then kad-
dish. We had come. We had seen. And we wept.
We turned to walk back to the bus, our arms
inlwined seeking comfort together. We tried to
follow that same path of lonely footsteps in the
midst of virgin snow covering everything at
Birkenau even the crime of genocide.
WE CLIMBED on the bus. It would not
move, stubbornly holding fast, resisting
departure. The hour was 3:30 in the afternoon.
Darkness was not too far off, would come by
4:30. The 18 Jews sat uncomfortably inside.
Stuck in Birkenau. next to the broken remains of
the crematorium. Eighteen Jews alone and
tormented by what had happened in this place,
on this very spot.
Though we wanted to leave this camp of
death, leave the snow and the desolation, the
barracks and the chimneys, the watch tower and
the railroad tracks, we knew we would never be
able to tear it out of ourselves. A part of it would
remain with us all our lives.
But it was growing late. And no one wanted to
spend the night in Birkenau. We would have to
push the bus. Of the 18. five men i ere not
allowed to help. One was retired, t iree had
recent histories of illness, strokes, heart
problems and one with a high fever. That left 13
including seven women and six men. And our
guide.
We left the bus then and gathered at its sides.
My beige gloves would soon be black. I grasped
the arch of metal above the left front wheel with
several members of the group. Others took their
place on the right side of the bus. We pushed
and pushed until finally the bus began to move.
WE WERE PROUD of ourselves and climbed
on to the bus ready tor departure. But the bus
had stopped several yards away and stubbornly
refused to budge a second time. Once again, this
time at the rear of the bus, we took our places
and began to push. The bus rolled forward and
backward, forward and backward, forward and
backward again.
We looked to our right and saw the
crematorium. We looked to the sky and saw
darkness falling. We pushed harder. I thought of
the Nazis and their Jewish victims, the horror of
that place and the six million who never had a
chance to escape their destination of death, and I
yelled "Jew power. Let's show those Nazis Jew
power." We pushed again and again. The bus
moved. It was free. So were we.
Totally relieved, the group of 18, of chai, piled
on to the bus. And this tune, the bus moved,
away from the crematorium, away from the
desolation, away from the horror into the falling

'Unilateral Measures9

law declaring Jerusalem its
capital, settlements on the West
Hank and pre-emptive attacks on
south Lebanon.
He said Egypt would welchme

Middle East peace process and
favored an international con-
tcrence aimed at solving the
Palestinian question but only if
the Palestinians themselves
attended. Al Ifckz said ah identity
of views between Egypt and Italy
on the Middle East was
demonstrated during Mubarak's
talks here with Prime Minister
Francesco Cosslga and Foreign
Minister Emilio Colombo.
