Giscard Says He's 'Revulsed'
President Valery Gis-
card d'Estaing of France
has expressed "revulsion*'
over the wave of anti-
Semitic violence in his
country. The French
leader's sentiments were
conveyed to Israel's
Foreign Minister Yitzhak
Shamir, who was in
Luxembourg heading an
Israeli delegation in trade
talks with European Eco-
nomic Community (EEC)
Israeli officials traveling with
Shamir reported that Giscard's
message was relayed to him by
Foreign Minister Gaston Thorn
of Luxembourg who is chairman
of the EEC's Council of
Ministers. Thorn met with
Giscard in Paris and with Shamir
in Luxembourg.
AT HIS meeting with the EEC
officials, Shamir said the

wing and right-wing terrorist
groups in Europe with

The World Zionist
Organization Executive issued a
statement here declaring that
"the government of France must
see itself responsible for
punishing those responsible and
for preventing any further neo-
Nazi activities."
The statement, expressing
solidarity with French Jews,
denounced the rash of anti-
Semitic incidents in France and
claimed that the United Nations
General Assembly resolution
equating Zionism with racism
"opened the way" for new anti-
Semitic outbreaks.
In New York, Edgar Bronf-
man, acting president of the
World Jewish Congress, issued a
statement declaring that the
WJC "shares the sense of shock
and outrage felt by the Jewish
community of France, by all
decent Frenchmen and by Jewish
communities throughout the
world at the recent anti-Semitic
attacks on Jewish institutions in
Paris, culminating in the mur-
derous bombing of the Rue
Copernic Synagogue on Oct. 3."
THE statement extended
"deepest sympathy to the
families of those who were killed
by the bomb blast and our sincere
wishes for a full recovery to those
who were injured."
It noted: "We have long called
for attention at international
forums and at the UN to the
danger of neo-Nazi racist
propaganda and other forms of
political extremism, whose
purpose is to use the weapon of
terror to incite racial and
religious hatred and
Bronfman welcomed the
resolution adopted by the
Parliamentary Assembly of the
Council of Europe on Oct. 1 on
the need to combat resurgent
fascist propaganda and its racist
aspects. The resolution urges
governements and parliaments of
member states to adopt, where it
does not already exist, legislation
directed against actions inspired
by racism and xenophobia. The
WJC, Bronfman added, "sin-
cerely hopes that all governments
which have not already taken
effective' measures against those
groups and movements which
sow terror and murder in an
effort to undermine the fabric of
democracy particularly
governments of countries where

of the Holocaust must surely

While we intend to make our recommendation in

The Right to Speak
Whether one is for or against the reelection of
President Carter in November, we are appalled by the
response of militant Jews to the President's appearance in
a Long Island. N.Y. synagogue on Monday during which
the militants engaged in a shouting spectacle designed to
drown the President out.
We have ourselves used these very columns since the
:g 1976 election campaign that put him into office to set our
own disappointments with the President before the eyes of
public examination.
If the President's most important foreign policy
achievement in office was the Camp David accord, we
have not hesitated, and we do not hestitate now, to declare
that the accord is divisive and dangerous. It aids Egypt's
aims immensely; it shrinks Israel's possibilities for
survival just as immensely; the prospects for peace in the
Middle East are not aided by the accord even one jot.
This is our view. But it is a far cry from shouting
epithets at President Carter and showing disrespect for
the office of the presidency by engaging in the kind of
exhibitionist behavior that the militants engaged in
during Mr. Carter's appearance at the Long Island
As President, he deserved the respect of his audience
to be heard. We are embarrassed by those who would have
denied him the right to speak a right shared by all
Mengele Victim Still Wears Neck Brace
j Berkowitz, a twin who survived,
Josef Mengele's experiments at
' Birkenau-Auschwitz, is
organizing a reunion of Jewish
survivors who were children in
the medical experiments section
of the camp and children from D
Camp, Block 24. All such sur-
vivors can contact him at 8E

Berkowitz says he was knowr
as Mano Adler and nicknameo
"little Putyu at Auschwitz.
Mengele. the "angel of death"
who is reportedly hiding in
Paraquay. selected some 400
children, especially ti
"medical" experiments. Six pairs
of these twins were liberated,
according to Berkowitz. In
addition to himself and his sister,
he beleives only three other pairs
of twins are now still alive.
Berkowitz, 48, lives in New
City with his wife and children,
and his sister lives in New York
with her family. He still wears a
neck brace because of Mengele's
experiments, which involved
injections into his spine. His
sister has related medical

twins arrived at Auschwitz at the
beginning of 1944 at age 11. and
were liberated by Soviet forces in
December of that year.
Terrorism Recalls Hitler Era
A new wave of terrorism is
sweeping over Europe, its roots
embedded in a nostalgic
reversion to the Hitler era and
the leadership principle. Unlike
the extreme leftist and nihilist
variety of terror which preceded
it, the new terrorism is
xenophobic, racist and violently
anti-Semitic. It has a definite
objective the establishment of
rightwing. authoritarian regimes
in West Germany. France. Italy
and some of the smaller countries
on the continent.
The old terrorist organizations
were loosely knit in an in-
ternational network in which the
Palest ine l.iberat ion
Organization was the binding
factor. Members of West Ger-
many's Baader-Meinhof gang.
I he Provisional Irish Republican
Army, the French "student''
rioters and others were trained in
PLO camps and some of them
were armed, partly financed and
"coordinated'' through the PLO
which, in turn, received sub-
stantial funds, arms and some
direction from the Soviet Union.
THE LEFTIST and nihilist
zealots did not seek to establish a
new political order. Like the
Weathermen of the fid's in this
country, their goal was todestroy
all existing government 'and

Professionals Want Foggy View
HAIFA Israel television
and radio, operated by an in-
dependent Broadcasting
Authority, have been under
considerable criticism. In their
news reporting, they seem to
emphasize the seamy side of life
and- spotlight all the faults and
flaws they can uncover on the
local scene. Some of their
muckraking is first-class jour-
nalism, and publicity they have
shed on scandalous situations
has undoubtedly been respon-
sible for important im-
provements. But there can also
be too much of a good thing.
Evening news broadcasts are
sometimes a lugubrious recital of
everything wrong, with only an
occasional positive feature.
In their defense, the broad-
casting people maintain that this
is what makes news. A little old
grandma sitting in a rocking
chair might make a pleasant
picture, but it's not news,
compared to, say, the sex-crazed
father who rapes his own
THERE HAVE also been
charges that those who write and
edit the broadcasts permit their
personal political bias to in-
fluence the programs, many of
which appear intended to make
the Begin Government look as
bad as possible. It almost seems
as if there is a deliberate cabal to
build up a popular mood of
dissatisfaction coincidentally,
just as the country prepares for
next year's elections.
The defense to this is "freedom
of communication;" there must
be no censorship or tampering
with the absolute freedom of the
"professionals" to present things
the way they see it. Any shifting
of personnel in the broadcasting
services is condemned as
government "interference."
At this stage, someone had a
bright idea: Let the prophets of
gloom and destruction continue
with the programs which they
treat as if their private property,
but perhaps there is room on the
air lor at least one bright, op-
timistic feature a program
which can greet the citizens daily
with "Boker Tov, Israel."
cation, which has sponsored the
idea, is confident that there will
be ample interesting and even
newsworthy material in every
area of the audio and visual
media. The variety show which is
contemplated will stress the
happy, encouraging and positive
side of life in education, culture,
the arts, defense, tradition, spirit
of voluntarism, pioneering,
settlement on the land, national
service, work ethics, honest]
quality of life.
Song and dance and came

Youth Aliyah Makes Difference in Life of Israeli Teen
Kiryat Yearim, Israel In
most ways 'Ruti'' is a typical
Israeli 15-year-old vibrant,
awakening to the possibilities of
learning, filled with expectations
(or tomorrow.
But Ruti is also important for
what she is not.
She is not a drug addict, or a
prostitute, or involved in other
serious crime. She is not wasting
these formative years wandering
idly through the streets of the
distressed neighborhood she still
calls home, barely able to read or*
write, with no job skills and no
hope of escape to a better life.
The brutal realities of such a
life are not unknown to Ruti.
Many of the young girls who
were her "friends'* in Sderot, a
small town between Beersheva
and Jerusalem, are caught up in
the deadening cycle of poverty,
illiteracy and crime, and until a
few years ago, Ruti was likely to
become just one more of its
nameless victims.
RUTI WAS born in
Casablanca, and her family
settled in Sderot when she was a
year old. One of nine children,
Ruti says of her mother only that
she is "a good woman, but things
got beyond her." Of her father,
Ruti says even less. Frequently
out of work and with no skills
readily marketable in Israel's
economy. Ruti's father sought
solace in drinking and playing
cards with his friends.
Soon Ruti was avoiding home
- where her family of 11 oc-
cupied two rooms as much as
she avoided school, where other
children seemed to grasp things
more quickly than she. and
language and cultural differences
made her feel an outsider.
Kuti's life began to change
hen a social worker suggested

\gency Youth Aliyah village in
Kiryat Yearim, a few miles from
Jerusalem. Ruti. whose life held

like Ruti achieve breakthroughs
in the classroom.
"The more I could read, the
more I wanted to read," Ruti
recalls. "Jumbles of words and
numbers began to mean
something, something I could use
to learn more and to be more. I
began to find out about art and
music, things I knew nothing
about. Even organized sports
were new tome."
KIRYAT Yearim is built
around a total educational en-
vironment, of which formal
classroom instruction is only a
part. Here, the emphasis is on
expanding students' minds while
simultaneously providing
healthy doses of both discipline
and affection something few
students have ever known.
"Our students live here; they
don't just come by to attend
classes," says administrator Hi
Ophir in discussing the
program's success. "Every
activity is important, and some
of our most serious learning takes
place outside the classroom."
Ruti and her classmates attend
plays staged by professional
actors and produce their own.
They are frequent visitors to the
theaters and museums of
Jerusalem, and many are
sculpting, painting, making films
and Derforming in school
Equally important. the
programs at Kiryat Yearim
enable children like Ruti to
appreciate the links between
themselves and their country.
Students spend several days each
year touring the country and
visiting Jewish historic sites to
better understand the in-
separable relationship between
the Jewish people and the land of
TODAY Ruti is a voracious
reader and writes with a grasp of
the language, and of life, beyond
her years. Art and music hold a
special attraction for her, and she
is developing into a promising
soccer player.
Ruti, like her classmates, has
learned to set herself apart from
the life she knew in Sderot, and
now is capable of shaping her
own future and of becoming a
productive citizen of Israel. She
is growing up.
"I go home to Sderot every
other Shabbat." Ruti says.
"Some things have improved.
My father is not as bad as he was.
but all in all. the situation is not
that good.
"1 think I understand now why
my father felt helpless to change
things, even though I don't agree
with him. And I try to help my
mother cope with the pressures
on her. At least now I feel there is
something I can do. that there is
a chance to make things better
than they are."
RUTI HAS almost completed
Kiryat Yearim's two-year
program and plans to continue
her studies. But for thousands of
"Rutis" in distressed neigh-
borhoods and towns throughout
Israel, the future is clouded.
Youth Aliyah. feeling the
pressures of inflation and a
shortfall in world campaign
income, has been forced to put a
celing on its programs for the
coming year.
Two thousand youths will be
turned away from life-building
facilities like Kiryat Yearim
unless the flow of funds from
world Jewry to the Jewish
Agency increases swiftly and
They will remain in the streets
of Israel's cities functionally
illiterate, unemployable, in
search of diversion, wondering if
their chance will come and what
they will do if it never does.
(The story of Ruti's experience
at Kiryat Yearim is represen-
tative of Youth Aliyah
educational prog rums serving
19,000 youngsters throughout
the State of Israel.
Approximately HO percent of
funding for Youth Aliyah comes
from the United Jewish
Appeal Federation campaigns
in the United States).

John Paul II told 150,000
persons gathered at an out-
door mass here that the
creation of Israel was re-
sponsible for the plight of
the Palestinian people. He
also appealed to Moslems
and Jews to make
Jerusalem a common home

The Pontiff spoke at Otranto.
in southern Italy, on the occasion
of the 500th anniversary of the
Turkish massacre there. In what
many observers regarded as the
harshest indictment of Israel by
any Pope, the Polish-born Pontiff
"The Jewish people, a people
with a tragic experience linked to
the extermination of so many
sons and daughters and pushed
by a desire for security, gave
birth to the State of Israel. But at
the same time, a sad condition
was created for the Palestinian
people who were in conspicuous
part excluded from their

added, "is the object of a dispute
that seems to be without
solution. Tomorrow, God willing,
it can become the crossroads of
conciliation and peace. We pray
that Jerusalem, rather than being
what it is today, the object of
contestation and division,
becomes the focus toward which
Christians. Jews and Moslems
look and around which al! feel
themselves brothers."
In New York. Rabbi Joseph
Sternstein. president of the
American Zionist Federation,
said that the Pope's statment
equating the plight of the
Palestinians with the establish-
ment of Israel "is absolutely
deplorable. A thorough review of
the facts illustrates
unequivocally the Popes
statement to be both erroneous
and dangerously misleading.
"Let us recall the historical
record clearly. The Arabs living
within the borders of the newly
established State of Israel fled
their homes at the insistence and
admonition of their Arab leaders
and despite assurances of safety
from the Israeli army. Moreover,

THERE IS a difference in the
lerman and French situations.
By and large, the German people
feel that with reparations and
restitution and such means, they
have paid for the sins of the
Hitler regime and have relatively
clean consciences. The French
have never been able to come to
terms with themselves, for of all
the peoples on the continent who
were subjugated by the Nazi war
machine, the French collaborated
with their conquerors most
readily and the French and Poles
jtave the Nazis most support in
their efforts to destroy the
Jewish people.
Details c! French
collaboration, of the betrayal ol
French Jews and of the
thousands ol foreign .lews who
had sought refuge in Prance,
have been getting considerable
attention in recent years. It is not
a pretty picture, and the French
have not been gladdened by what
this retrospective research has
brought to the surface.
Their sense of guilt, some
observers deduce, is one reason
why the French have turned on
Israel; they can subordinate this
guilt to the anger aroused by the
alleged Israeli mistreatment of
the Arabs. And then there are oil
and the policy of the Giscard
d'Estaing government to seek to
establish a powerful French
influence in the Arab world.
TENS OF thousands of
Frenchmen served in the in-
famous Vichy Milice under
Marshal Petain and Pierre Laval,
and the Milice served Hitler more
loyally than many of his Storm
Troop battalions. Thousands of
the Milice are still alive, and they

endemic to the French. There has
hardly been an era in which in one

That was true long before the

reported on Leon Daudet's

others. There have always been

only by their bureaucratic
Yet, to be fair, not all French-
men are or have been anti-

entire villages cooperated to

desire to frustrate their Nazi
overlords. Although Paris has
always been the mecca of young

tially, are not a hospitable race

Not many Jews have been
accepted as part and parcel of the
French people. The current anti-
Jewish activities will create a
wider gap between Jew and non-
Jew in France, even though its

Pope Deplores Paris Bombings
As 'Unworthy' of Christians |
ROME (JTA) Pope John Paul II has deplored
the bombing of a Paris synagogue as an act "unworthy of
man and even more of Christians.'" His feeling was ex-
pressed in a telegram to Cardinal Francois Marty of Paris,
sent on the Pontiff's behalf by the Papal Secretary of
State. Cardinal Agostino Casaroli.
The message stated: "The Holy Father shares your
indignation and that of all the French before the act of
terrorism directed against the Jews joins in prayer for
the innocent victims and wishes to express his words of
solidarity and comfort to the relatives of the victims and
to the wounded. Moreover, he expresses ardent hopes that
similar acts of violence may be definitely banished as un-
worthy of man and even more of Christians."

Appeal family Mission to Israel

readers. This is the fourth in-

Part IV of a Series
July 6, noon Museum
of the Illegal Immigrant*
(Aliyah Bet). Haifa
Modern day travelers like us
have difficulty imagining the
conditions endured by the im-
migrants fleeing the Nazi's Final
Solution or having been freed
from the death camps by the
Allied Forces at the close of the
World War II. Crowded by the
hundreds on dilapidated ships
with space enough for only 20 or
30 people, these immigrants
hardly had room to move. All
water had to be saved for
drinking, with none available for
washing themselves or their
clothes, and with no sanitary
facilities. The only thing that
kept alive these immigrants,
already sick and weak from their
concentration camp experiences,
was the dream of coming to Eretz
Yisroel. Many of the ships were
sunk by the British who were
trying to pacify the Arabs'
displeasure at the increased flow
of Jewish immigration If the
ships managed to slip past the
British gunbouts, the immigrants
were often arrested or sent to yet
another concentration camp on
Cyprus. The Hebrew name of this
museum expresses the whole
feeling of the Aliyah Bet
movement. The literal translation
is: "In spite of everything."
2 p.m. Haifa
Haifa is built on three levels
with Haifa University on the top
level overlooking the whole city
as well as the harbor area on the
Mediterranean Sea.
Haifa is the center of the Bahai
religion. This religion believes in
the spiritual unity of mankind,
and. therefore in all religions. It
also believes in the splendor of
God and of all His things. The
Bahai moved their center from
Persia to Haifa where they have
constructed beautiful churches
and gardens.
Acre was the ancient biblical

addition, the base commander
was quite accommodating and
congenial to our group. He not
only offered us delicious and
welcomed refreshments, but he
also conscientiously answered the
adults' questions as well as the
numerous questions from the
children. Even though we were
intruding on his valuable time, he
wanted each child to have
chance to be heard and to be
6 p.m. Kibbutz Geaher Hasiv
Kibbutz Gesher Haziv is
located in the northernmost part
of Israel. The lovely guest house
was a quiet respite from a hectic
day of traveling and sightseeing.
July 7,8 a.m.
Gesher Haziv
Gesher Haziv means Bridge of
Valor. In tne 1948 war, the
Palmach decided to blow up all of
the bridges crossing rivers and
streams in the northernmost part
of Israel. Unfortunately, the
group assigned to destroy the
bridge at Gesher Haziv was killed
in the process of doing so; thus
the place is named Gesher Haziv
in their memory.
9 a.m. caves at Rosh Ha Nikra
Located at the Lebanese
border, these caves were formed
by the waters of the
Mediterranean eroding away the
rock of the cliffs as it crashed into
the stone. A railroad formerly
tunneled through these rocks
between Israel and Lebanon.
After numerous terrorist attacks
from across the Lebanese border,
the Israelis closed off the tunnel
to prevent its being used as an
infiltration point by the
We took cable cars down the
side of the cliffs to view the
caves, then returned to our buses
where we noticed numerous
United Nations vehicles parked
along the Israeli-Lebanese
border. When we asked our guide
why so many UN vehicles were
stopped here, he told us that the
Israelis no longer allow UN
vehicles to cross the border
because a number of UN soldiers
had recently been involved in
smuggling arms to the PLO. As a
result, UN soldiers must park in
Israel, walk across the border,
and then depart in vehicles that
had been parked on the l^ebanese
side of the border.
10 a.m. Acre t Akko) prison
The Irgun. Palmach and
Sternists were imprisoned and
tortured here at Acre prison by
the British because of their
actions to help the illegal im-
migrants of Aliyah Bet. and to
oppose the British occupation of
Eretz Yisroel. These terrorists
assassinated specific people and
specific sites- never civilian
women and children as the PLO
often does today. These men and
women were only interested in
eliminating those who were
preventing them from controlling
their own land.
12 :30 p.m. Safad
Safad is located in the high or
Upper Galilee. The Acre-Safad
Road divides the steep moun-
tains of the Upper Galilee and the
smaller, rolling mountains of the
Lower Galilee. In this area, the
Arabs are a 70 percent majority.

1:30p.m. -Birya
We came to Birya to plant
trees in a Jewish National Fund
forest, and to enjoy a picnic lunch
in the forest. Having been
sightseeing in the hot Israeli sun,
the coolness of the forest em-
phasized to us the importance of
these trees in protecting moisture
and vegetation from the hot, dry
sun. In addition, the trees hold
the soil and prevent erosion
during the torrential rains of the
short rainy season.
3 p.m. Safad
Because our group was off its
schedule, we could not stop and
tour Safad. a quaint town that
has had a Jewish community
since the 11th century. After the
Spanish expulsion, the mystical
Kabala movement began in
Safad. The new thoughts of
Kabala attempted to explain the
happenings of the time and was
the basis of other later
movements such as Hassidism.
Kabalism is still active in Safad.
In the 1948 War. Safad was a
mixed city with both Arabs and
Jews living there. Because of its
location, the Jews needed to
capture the city, and did so with
very little gun fire. They used a
new weapon called a davidka.
This device made such a loud,
booming noise, the Arabs ran.
leaving the Jews in control of the
3:25 p.m. Rosh Pina
Rosh Pina was one of the first
settlements established in the
Galilee in the late 19th century
by the early Zionists. They hoped
that this settlement would be a
cornerstone for many settlements
in the area.
3:45 p.m. Hula Valley
The Hula Valley was once a
swamp. About 25 years ago. the
Israeli government initiated a
project to drain the swamp by
constructing canals to direct the
swamp's waters to the Kinneret,
and by planting eucalyptus trees.
The Hula Valley lies between the
Naftali Mountains in Lebanon
and the mountains of the Golan,
which was part of Syria before
the Yom Kippur War.

Republican presidential candidate Ronald
Reagan and his chief foreign policy advisers are
angry at Israeli Opposition leader Shimon Peres
for, "belittling" Regan's expertise on foreign
affairs while in Washington three months ago_
Peres's remarks, made during background
briefings for American reporters, have been
published in The Wall Street Journal and The
Washington Post, which wrote. "A visiting
Israeli political leader was even more outspoken
(in discussing Regan). After a meeting with
Reagan, he told amost everyone he encountered in
Washington: Reagan knows as much about the
Middle Hast as I do about making films in
Israel Takes 'Grave'
View of Soviet Tie
Prime Minister Mena-
chem Begin said here that
Israel takes a "grave" view
of the new Soviet-Syrian
friendship and military co-
operation pact and of "the
growing Jordanian involve-
ment in the Iraqi war ef-
forts" against Iran.
Speaking to reporters at
the Defense Ministry, Be-
gin said it was safe to
assume that Syria and the
Soviet Union have signed a
secret agreement that
parallels their publicly
signed accord. He con-
tended that this affected
the entire free world and
that he would discuss it
with President Carter when
they meet in Washington
next month.
that President Hafez Assad of
Syria apparently decided that he
had to enter into a formal pact
with the Soviets, something he
hesitated to do before, because
the Iraqi-Iranian war left Syria
isolated among the Arab states,
all of which except Libya, are
supporting Iraq. Because of
Syria's long-standing rivalry
with Iraq. Assad also may have
felt he could not allow Iraq to
draw closer to Moscow as a result
of the war.
But the Israelis believe it is
altogether unlikely that Syria
would join the war by taking
military action against Iraq. This
is because Iraq has portrayed the
war as an Arab struggle against a
non-Arab power and Assad,
heading a minority Alawite Mos-
lem regime, could hardly cast his
lot with the non-Arab side in
actual combat.
With respect to Jordan's as-
sistance to Iraq, Begin suggested
that there is a danger that the
Iraqis will sell Soviet war equip-
ment to Jordan as a gesture of
gratitude and "this would
present a direct danger to us."
He implied that the U.S. should
cancel its proposed sale Ol tanks
to Jordan. Deputy Prime
Minister Yigael Yadin also
warned that King Hussein of
Jordan was making a serious
mistake when he joined Iraq
against Iran.
MEANWHILE, the Jordanian
port of Aqaba is a scene of heavy
activity. But Israeli circles
believe that Amman is simply
trying to impress the world that
its backing for Iraq is in earnest.
They point out that so far, only
one Iraqi-flag ship with war
materiel from an Eastern
European country discharged
cargo at Aqaba. It is believed to
have consisted of anti-aircraft
guns and ammunition.
Nevertheless, Jordan has
become a supply route for Iraq,
avoiding the Persian Gulf and the
Iranian navy.
Israeli military planners are
taking account of the possibility
that the Iraqi-Jordan relation-
ship will lead to heightened
tension between Jordan and
Syria. Israel is deeply troubled
by Jordan's logistical support for
Iraq which could broaden into a
full-fledged alliance and King
Hussein's increasingly hard line
and warlike statements in recent
months aimed at Israel. The Jor-
danian media has referred to the
Persian Gulf war as a prelude to
the "purification of Jerusalem
from the infidel."
THE. U.S. and Britain have
already warned Jordan against
any serious involvement in the
Persian Gulf war.
On a BBC television interview,
Hussein confirmed that his army
has been put on a state of alert
and that supplies were reaching
Iraq by way of Aqaba. However,
he said, there were "no imminent
plans" to send Jordanian troops
to Iraq despite reports that
40,000 Jordanian troops have
been sent to the Iraqi border.
Hussein said the Iraqis did not
need help, but if they did, Jordan
would not hesitate to give it. He
called on all Arab countries to
support Iraq's "just cause."
Roman Jews March To
Protest French Violence
Some 5,000 Jews, about
one-third of the city's
15,000 Jews, marched
through the center of
Italy's capital last week in
solidarity with the demon-
stration in Paris and to
protest against recent anti-
Semitic events in France.
Jewish-owned shops were
closed all over the city as
their owners and their fam-
ilies swelled the ranks of
the demonstrators.
Marchers carried signs with
the* words "Treblinka,"
"Dachau," "Auschwitz" and
"Risiera di san Saba." The latter
was the only Italian death camp.
It was located in Trieste. Other
signs said "No to fascism" and
"Never again."

'Of Blood and Hope'
Catch a Review
Around Town These Days
Ministry Defends Genetic Engineering
Of Blood and Hope. By Samuel
Pisar. Boston: Little, Brown &
Co., $12.95,311 p.
THERE ARE several book
reviewers around town who are
currently presenting Of Blood
and Hope. Catch one if you can.
Evan in this year in which many
stories of the Holocaust period
have been published and
cinematized. Pisar's story is
unique and unusual. The purpose
of his work is not simply to recall
the horrors of one survivor,
Samuel Pisar. Rather, he intends
his concept of Auschwitz to be a
very clear warning to global
leaders of great and small powers
of possible future holocausts,
that is, the danger of nuclear war.
While much of his warnings
seem to be sermonizing, Pisar
approaches his subject from a
well-qualified position. He is an
international lawyer who earned
- bis doctorate from Harvard. He
worked for the UN. and was an
advisor to the Kennedy
Administration and the U.S.
Senate. He has offices in Paris,
New York and Washington
involved with multi-national
corporations that deal with the
Soviet Union and other Com-
munist nations.
YET AT the same time, we
remember that this friend of
Giscard d'Estaing, Moshe Dayan
and Henry Kissinger was
Number B 1713 at Auschwitz.
His parents were killed with most
of the other 60,000 Jews of his
native Rialystock.
Like many survivors, Pisar
beleived that he survived so
many horrors because he was a
magical person who couldn't be
destroyed. And it took him a long
time to talk or write about the
horror. He could not deal with the
guilt and pain.

Gestapo Chief
Commits Suicide
BONN (JTA) A former
Gestapo official, who was the
chief officer in wartime Belgium
and northern France, committed
suicide last Saturday, it was
disclosed here by Justice
Ministry officials. Another high-
ranking Nazi, a former SS officer,
(iustav Franz Wagner,
previously committed suicide at
his home in Brazil.
The TO year-old former Nazi,
Krnst Khlers, took his own life
just a few weeks before his trial
was to open on charges of
complicity in murder and his role
in deporting thousands of Jews
to Nazi death camps. Ehlers, who
electrocuted himself at his home
in Kiel, left a suicide note in
which he said the upcoming trial
was the reason he decided to
commit suicide. The trial was to
have opened Nov. 26.
According to the charges.
Ehlers was responsible for the
deporation of about 26,000
Belgian and French Jews to
Auschwitz and other con-
centration camps in Poland.
Only3,439 of the deportees were
said to have survived.

was written in English not one
of the five languages he spoke
during his concentration camp
and DP experiences. He claimed
it was easier to write in English,
because it was a language un-
tainted by his suffering, giving
him some distance from the
disasters he describes.
PISAR'S message is an im-
portant one. He assesses the
weaknesses of governments and
the importance of individuals. He
stresses, "can those who have
experienced only normal life
understand that the sacrifices
required to cope with some of the
world's problems are much less
than they suppose, but the
dangers involved in ignoring any
of them are infinitely greater
than they imagine?"
This intensely personal story is
a compassionate and intelligent
link between the atrocities of the
past and the dangers of the
The Health Ministry
said that an experiment in
genetic engineering per-
formed at the Hadassah
Medical Center here last
July was fully in keeping
with medical ethics. It in-
volved the splicing of genes
in an attempt to cure a
patient of a hereditary
blood ailment that often
proves fatal and is believed
to have been the first oper-
ation of its kind on a human
The procedure was performed
by Dr. Martin Cline who
developed the technique in
animal experiments at the
University of California Los
Angeles, and Prof. Eliezer Rach-
milowitz, head of the
hematological department at the
Hadassah Medical Center. The
Health Ministry was unaware of
the case until the story appeared
in the Los Angeles Time. That
paper reported that the U.S.
government was investigating
the case on suspicion that it was
a dangerous experiment per-
formed on humans.
But. Dr. Yehoshua Weissbrot,
acting director general of the
Health Ministry, said the
operation was not an experiment
to alter the genetic traits of a
human being but an attempt to
cure a patient of a dangerous
THE PATIENT was a 21-year-
old Israeli woman suffering from
Beta Thalassemia Major, a
condition caused by the inability
to produce a component of
normal hemoglobin, the molecule
in red blood cells that carries
oxygen from the lungs to the
body tissues.
The doctors removed a small
amount of blood marrow from the
patient and spliced the cells to
genes capable of producing the
vital hemoglobin component. The
spliced cells were then introduced
to the patient in the hopeQhat
they would begin producing
normal hemoglobin.
Cline and his team performed
the same procedure in a 16-year-
old girl in Naples. The conditions
of both patients remained stable
indicating that the procedure
may be successful. Although the
results will not be known for
several months, the doctors
