Verges Insists Barbie Be Freed
No Matter What the Verdict__
PARIS (JTA) A legal
stratagem by which Klaus Bar-
bie's attorney hopes to get the
former Lyon Gestapo chief
released from prison whether
or not he is convicted of crimes
against humanity was disclos-
ed to the Jewish Telegraphic
Attorney Jacques Verges
said he would make a formal
plea for Barbie's release when
the trial resumed in Lyon Mon-
day. Verges told the JTA that
under French criminal law a
person convicted more than
once for crimes committed
during the same period of time
can serve only the most severe
of the sentences imposed. Bar-
bie was convicted in absentia
of war crimes and sentenced to
death in 1952, a penalty he
evaded by finding haven in
THE 20-year statute of
limitations on war crimes con-
victions expired 15 years ago.
Verges claims that since
capital punishment was
abolished in France in 1981,
Barbie now faces a maximum
penalty of life imprisonment.
According to Verges, "all
lesser sentences will now have
to be encompassed by the 1952
verdict in spite of the fact it
can no longer be applied. Such
is the law. Barbie will have to
be set free after his trial
ends," he told the JTA.
Presiding Judge Andre Cer-
dini is expected to rule on
Verges' plea when the trial
ends, possibly on July 3 or 4.
The prosecution and lawyers
for individual plaintiffs are
likely to argue that since the

Israeli Delegation Meets PLO,
Greeted by Police At Airport
TEL AVIV (JTA) Members of a 15-person unof-
ficial Israeli delegation that met with Palestine Liberation
Organization leaders in Budapest last week were greeted
Sunday at the airport by Israeli police.
THE DELEGATES were told to report to police sta-
tions within the next few days for questioning about their
meetings. Under a recently passed law, Israelis can be
sentenced to three years in prison for meeting with PLO
personnel. But the head of the left-wing delegation, MK
Charlie Biton (Communist), enjoys parliamentary
The delegation met with PLO Executive member Abu
Mazeb and seven other PLO officials. A lawyer who accom-
panied the Israelis is expected to explain that the open and
announced meeting was not subversive, and was intended
to establish contacts that could lead to Israeli-Arab peace.
1987 TJF/UJA Campaign To Close
June 30; $1,100,000 Results To Date
The 1987 Tampa Jewish Federation/United
Jewish Appeal Campaign will officially close on
June 30 and allocations to local, national, and
overseas agencies will be recommended by the
budget committee based on the campaign
results according to Walter Kessler, 1987 cam-
paign chairman.
Kessler pointed out that the $1,100,000
represents the same amount realized in the 1986
campaign and there is still over $100,000
unrealized from individuals who pledged last
year, but have not responded to the 1987 cam-
paign. "We are doing everything possible to
complete these cards before June 30," Kessler
stated, "and we ask anyone who has not made
their 1987 commitment to call the Federation of-
fice at 875-1618 to make their pledge before
June 30."
According to Gary Alter, executive vice presi-
dent, the next few days are crucial to all of our
recipient agencies. With every agency in need of
increased funds, every dollar that is raised
before June 30 will make increased allocations
possible. Otherwise we will be forced to allocate
on the same amount as we raised last year,"
Alter concluded.
Herbert Swarzman, vice president of the Tam-
pa Jewish Federation is serving as chairman of
the budget and allocations committee. Members
of the committee include: Doug Cohn, Walter
Kessler, Judith Rosenkranz, William Kalish,
David Zohar, Maril Jacobs, Jerilyn Goldsmith,
Sandy Solomon, Goldie Shear, Mark Carron and
Bobbe Karpay.
"It is important that we have participation
from every member of our community," Doug
Cohn, Federation President stated, "and we can
conclude with a successful 1987 campaign with
immediate responses from those who have not
made their pledge."
Herzog Angered
Lashes Out Against Vigilantism
President Chaim Herzog has
again lashed out against the
"dangerous phenomenon in
Israel where ix-rsons
of them under the guise of the
Jewish religion take the law
into their own hands."
Herzog's remarks, in a
speech to graduates of Tel
Aviv University Law School
last Thursday night (June 11),
were an obvious reference to
militant Jewish settlers in the
West Bank who have commit-
ted acts of violence against the
local Arab population and
clashed with the Israel
Defense Force.
"We have reached a most
dangerous stage in which
hands are raised against IDF
soldiers, they are harmed and
held in contempt, and violent
acts and 'reprisals" are carried
out indiscriminately against
the civilian population,"Her-
His words were borne out by
a public statement released
Wednesday by three IDF of-
ficers and 27 soldiers after
completing three weeks of
reserve duty in Hebron. The

views cover most of the
political spectrum, testified
that "service in Hebron

istence of a kind of popular

Jewish Groups Ask Supreme Court
To Overturn Moment-of-Silence Law
NEW YORK (JTA) Two national Jewish organizations have filed friend-
of-the-court briefs asking the U.S. Supreme Court to uphold a federal appeals
court ruling that a New Jersey law requiring state school employees to direct a
moment of silence in public school classrooms is unconstitutional.
The briefs were filed in the case of Karcher v. May by the Anti-Defamation
League of B'nai B'rith and the American Jewish Congress, both of which main-
tain that the New Jersey legislation was enacted "solely for religious purposes"
to circumvent the separation clause which bans organized prayer in public
The AJCongress brief was signed by the American Jewish Committee, the
Union of American Hebrew Congregations, People for the American Way and
the National Jewish Community Relations Advisory Council, an umbrella group
representing 125 Jewish communal organizations.
The ADL was joined in its brief by Americans for Religious Liberty, a na-
tional educational organization defending religious liberty.
MEYER EISENBERG, chairman of the ADL's Law Committee, said the
New Jersey statute was the latest of many attempts by the state legislature to
put prayer back into its public schools. The state "is not permitted to legislate a
substitute for vocal prayer," Eisenberg said. "To the extent the New Jersey mo-
ment of silence law has this very purpose to substitute for organized vocal
prayer in our public schools it intends to endorse and does endorse prayer and
religions," he added.
The AJCongress brief cited 18 previous attempts by the New Jersey
legislature to circumvent Supreme Court rulings holding public school prayer un-
constitutional. "This case presents, in stark relief, the question whether it is the
business of government to encourage or promote religious observance," the brief
The legislation, enacted in 1982, was the subject of a suit brought against the

Memorial Foundation To Meet In
Eastern Europe June 29
NEW YORK, NY For the
first time ever, the Memorial
Foundation for Jewish Culture
will hold its Executive Com-
mittee meeting in Eastern
Europe in Budapest,
Hungary from June 29 to
July 2.
The historic event follows on
the heels of the World Jewish
Congress meeting in Budapest
in May. Philip M. Klutznick,
President Emeritus of the
World Jewish Congress, is the
current President of the
Memorial Foundation for
Jewish Culture.
"The Foundation has a deep,
long-time connection with
Jewish communities in
Eastern Europe," Klutznick
said. "We have supported
educational, cultural, and
religious programs in
Bulgaria, Czechoslovakia,
East Germany, Hungary,
Poland, Rumania, and
Yugoslavia. The largest and
most varied of these programs
is in Hungary."
Hungary has 80,000 Jews,
Dr. Jerry Hochbaum, Founda-
tion Executive Director,
pointed out. Most of these
Jews live in Budapest. They,
together with the Foundation,
support a significant number
of local Jewish institutions.
"Since its beginnin, the
Foundation has been deeply in-
volved with the Hungarian
Jewish community," Klutznick
said. "It has supported the
Rabbinical Seminary in
Budapest the only one of its
kind in Eastern Europe and
has helped train over 30 rabbis
as well as five cantors. These
now serve Jewish communities
throughout Hungary, as well
as Riga, Moscow, East Berlin,
Leningrad, and Prague. The
Foundation also supports the
only Jewish high school in
Budapest and the Yeshiva
Ketana. We have also given
support for Jewish scholar-
ship, archival research, and
"At our Executive Commit-
tee meeting June 29-July 2, we
will join with the Hungarian
Jewish community to examine
the impact of our support in
Hungary and the implications
of this support for other
Jewish communities in
Eastern Europe. In addition, a
series of new dramatic in-
itiatives in the area of Jewish
education in Hungary will be

a ceremony at City Hall, June U. Manfred
Rommel is one of the few European politicians
to publicly support Israel sovereignty over

Son of 'Desert Fox9
Rommel 'Guardian' of Jerusalem
TEL AVIV (JTA) Manfred Rommel,
son of Field Marshal Erwin Rommel, the
"Desert Fox" of World War II, whose Afrika
Corps once posed a threat to the Jewish com-
munity in Palestine, was designated "Guar-
dian of Jerusalem" at a ceremonny at City
Hall in the capital Sunday.
The 58 year-old Manfred Rommel, Mayor of
Stuttgart, West Germany, is on his third visit
to Israel. Honored for his activities on behalf
of cultural institutions in Jerusalem, he is the
17th foreigner to be made a "Guardian of
Jerusalem" and the second West German so
designated. The first was publisher Axel
"IF THE Afrika Corps had succeeded in
taking the Suez Canal, it would have been
very difficult for this country and the Jewish
population," Rommel said, adding, "the ma-
jority of Germans know today that it was
much better to lose the war than to win it
with Hitler."
Rommel's famous father, regarded by
military historians as perhaps the most
brilliant general on either side during the
war, was forced to take his own life after he
was implicated in the German officer's plot to
kill Hitler in 1944.
North African Jews believe it was Rommel
who prevented the "Final Solution" from be-
ing carried out against them when German
might dominated North Africa from Egypt to
Mayor Teddy Kollek of Jerusalem noted
that if the German army had been able to in-
vade Palestine, the fate of the population
would not have been in Rommel's hands.

To Help Stop Papal Audience
NEW YORK (JTA) Seymour Reich, president of
B'nai B'rith International, suggested that John Cardinal
O'Connor, the Archbishop of New York, urge Pope John
Paul II to cancel his audience with Austrian President Kurt
Waldheim, scheduled to take place at the Vatican

credulous that Waldheim would be received at the Vatican
because of his persistence in seeing an audience with the
"That is hardly a reason to bestow upon an unrepen-
tant Nazi who lied for 40 years about his wartime activity
the honor of being received by the Pope," Reich said.
"I believe it would be appropriate for John Cardinal
O'Connor to suggest that the audience be cancelled in view
of the sense of outrage that the Jewish community feels at
this invitation.
"CARDINAL O'CONNOR might also wish to advise
the Vatican that because our government has barred
Waldheim from these shores, the granting of an audience
will be seen by many Americans as a slap in the face to the
United States.

insistence in urging the Pope to withdraw this incom-
prehensible invitation than those who sought it," Reich

Bishops Join Anti-Waldheim Stance
chbishop John May of St.
Louis, president of the Na-
tional Conference of Catholic
Bishops, said in a statement
issued here Monday that "the
motivations of (Pope John Paul
II) need to be clarified" regar-
ding his audience with
Austria's President Kurt
Waldheim in the Vatican on .
The Pope's decision has rais-
ed a storm of controversy
among Jewish leaders and
organizations across America
and internationally, who con-
sider Waldheim to be "an
unrepentant Nazi."
IN HIS statement, Ar-
chbishop May appeared to be
giving these Jewish
spokesmen support in their de-
mand last Friday that the
Pope meet with them for a
"substantive" discussion
before his Sept. 11 meeting in
Miami as part of a papal cross-
country American tour.
"I am aware of the sensitivi-
ty of this (the papal audience
with President Waldheim) and
related issues for the Jewish
community in the United
States and throughout the
world," May said in his state-
ment, thus throwing the sup-
port of U.S. Catholic bishops
behind American Jews.
Despite protests from Israel
and Jews around the world,
the Vatican insisted Tuesday
that the papal audience with
Waldheim would take place as
pected to meet with Pope John
Paul in the Vatican for approx-
imately one-half hour and be
given full honors.
Following his statement in
Washington, Archbishop May
emphasized that the U.S.
Catholic Church has little in-
fluence on the Vatican's
diplomatic decisions. "Ob-
viously, I have no competence
to speak" for it, he declared.
But he added: "I do want to
express my hope that plans for
the meeting in Miami between
Jewish leaders and the Holy
Father will continue despite
the serious concerns raised by
some that the intention of the
Holy Father to receive Presi-
dent Waldheim will impact
negatively on the Miami
May emphasized that Thurs-
day's papal audience "did not
initiate" with the Pope and
that the meeting is "in keeping
with the standard practice of
the Holy See to receive duly
elected political leaders."

THE VATICAN announced
last Wednesday (June 16) that
the Pope would receive
Waldheim there on Thursday
(June 25). Waldheim, a practic-
ing Catholic, was to be accom-
panied by Austrian Foreign
Minister Allis Mock on what
would be Waldheim's first trip
abroad since his controversial
election last July.
A spokesman for the Italian
government said that Presi-
dent Pietro Cossiga will not
meet with the Austrian Presi-
dent "because of the internal
political situation." But
Foreign Minister Giulio An-
dreotti will confer with Mock
while he is in Rome, the
spokesman said. He added that
Waldheim would be greeted at
the airport with "all the
courtesy due a foreign
The only reaction from
Israel was a brief statement by
a Foreign Ministry spokesman
who said the Vatican's invita-
tion "surprised the Jewish
world and the State of Israel."
He added, "We wonder what
were its motives, and we con-
demn the decision."
especially strong in the United
States, where the Justice
Department recently placed
Waldheim on its Watch List of
undesirable foreigners barred
from entering the country.
Several American Jewish
groups hinted that it could af-
fect Jewish attitudes toward
the Pope when he visits the
U.S. next September. The
American Jewish Congress
has said it will boycott the
September meeting with the
Pope in Miami.
Mann said the Pontiffs
meeting with Waldheim
"would temper the enthusiasm
with which leadership an-
ticipates the Pope's forthcom-
ing visit to the United States."
The Synagogue Council of
America, which represents the
rabbinic and congregational
organizations of Reform, Con-
servative and Orthodox
Judaism, warned that "These
developments cast a dark
cloud on Jewish-Vatican rela-
tions and on the scheduled
meeting of the Pope with
leaders of the American
Jewish community in Miami on
September 11."
Theodore Ellenoff, president
of the American Jewish Com-
mittee, said the Pope's deci-
sion to receive Waldheim
"with full 'state honors' is
morally and politically incom-
prehensible." Ellenoff observ-
ed that, "It would be
altogether a matter of per-
sonal conscience were the
Pope to receive Dr. Waldheim
as a private Catholic communi-
cant seeking pastoral solace"
but "for the Supreme Pontiff
as head of the Holy See to
receive Kurt Waldheim as
President of a state makes a
mockery of truth and justice."
In urging the Pope to recon-
sider, Mann pointed to "the
revulsion felt by the rest of the
world over Waldheim's past
Nazi associations and ac-
signor John Patrick Carroll-
Abbin of Rome, who among
many good deeds found shelter
for Jews fleeing south from
the Nazis, has received
honorary citizenship of this ci-
ty, the 29th person so honored.

Wearing her "I'm a

Franci Rudolph set the tone
for the coming year as she was
installed as president of the
Congregation Schaarai Zedek
Sisterhood in May.
"The essence of sisterhood is
the word sisters, and that is
what we must be. We are
buiTding friendships, develop-
ing potential and spanning the
generations. No longer can we
take the traditional woman's
role, we must have a variety of
programming to interest the
wide spectrum of women who
are our members," said
Already in the planning

But court officials
acknowledged that a difficult
legal tangle is in the offing and
will probably be resolved on
the basis of precedents if
any can be found.
BARBIE, the wartime "but-
cher of Lyon," went on trial
here on May 11. He claimed at
the outset that he was "kid-

he asked to be returned to his
prison cell and, except for a

has boycotted the proceedings.

Still Indifferent
Barbie Listens to Horror Tales
With Amused Smile on Face
LYON (JTA) In or out
of court here, where he is on
trial for crimes against
humanity, Klaus Barbie con-
tinues to show indifference to
his alleged victims' sufferings
and to the trial itself.
In court, where "the But-
cher of Lyon" last appeared on
June 6, he listens to the horror
stories of his interrogations
and ensuing deportations with
a half-amused smile. In his cell
at St. Joseph Prison here, he
sat throughout last week glued
to his television set watching
the French Open tennis
AT ONE POINT, his prison
wardens became so upset with
his indifference that, contrary
to prison regulations, they con-
fiscated his TV. The practice in
France is to allow non-
sentenced prisoners, or those
still awaiting sentences, to
watch TV and read
newspapers at will. Prison
authorities refused to com-
ment on this incident, but
some wardens have privately
told newsmen that "now that
the tennis tournament is over"
the set has been returned to
Barbie's cell.
Barbie's absence has
frustrated most of the victims
and the plaintiffs lawyers and

it has somewhat taken the trial
off course. Former victims,
witnesses and lawyers address
an empty dock and the defense
lawyer, Jacques Verges, who
occasionally barely manages to
hide his glee at this paradox.
Prosecutor Andre Truche
has not requested that Barbie
be present for the entire trial,
but has on several occasions
tried to make him reveal some
of his hidden personality and
explain how he became a con-
vinced Nazi in the 1930's. He
also prodded Barbie to explain
some of the tenets of National
Socialism and his own attitude
to its racist theories.
LAST FRIDAY, when Bar-
bie made one of his brief ap-
pearances in court, Truche
told him: "In years from now
people will see a film of this
trial (the proceedings will be
released in 20 years).
"They will hear the
testimonies, and they will pro-
bably ask themselves, 'Didn't
he have anything to say? No
explanation to offer?' Maybe
even your own grandchildren
or great grandchildren might
research into the past of their
families and try to understand
what had happened. Don't you
think that you should
Barbie, true to the stance
had adopted since May 13,
when he claimed that he was
"a hostage illegally brought to
France," remained silent. He
only repeated his by now stan-
dard retort, "Nichts zu sagen,
Herr President" (I have
nothing to say, Mr. President).
The trial has entered a se-
cond phase. For the first four
weeks, the court, nine jurors
and three judges heard
testimony from former victims
mainly Jews who often hob-
bled to the stand and poured
out more than 40 years of
pent-up frustrations. Now the
court is hearing witnesses
described as "of general in-
terest," mainly historians,
researchers and former
leaders of France's wartime
anti-German resistance forces.
THE trial began on May 11
and is expected to end July 3
4. Among the latter
witnesses was the late French
WITNESS: Marie Claire Vaillant Couturier

to Auschwitz and Ravensbruck and was a

President Charles De Gaulle's
niece, Genevieve DeGaulle-
Anthonioz, 66, herself a
former deportee to
Ravensbruck, a notorious
women's concentration camp.
Testifying Tuesday, she said
that babies were often drown-
ed in buckets of water shortly
after birth at the camp and
that conditions were so horri-
ble that most women preferred
to see their children dead
rather than survive for
another few weeks, or months
at the most.
Verges privately says that
his client still hopes that the
Bolivian Supreme Court will
decide that his extradition was
illegal and ask France to
return him.
Truche last week told Bar-
bie, "One thing is certain, you
will never see Bolivia again."

Hillel Graduation
"If you have anything really
valuable to contribute to the
world, it will come through the
expression of your own per-
sonality that single spark of
divinity that sets you off and
makes you different from
every other living creature."
(Bruce Barton.)
As each graduate of Hillel
entered the graduation
ceremony Sunday morning,
June 7, it was evident to those
friends that knew them; family
that loved them; and teachers
that taught them; just how
much they had all grown and
matured over the years.
Mr. Joachim Scharf, head-
master of the school welcomed
everyone to the graduation.
The opening prayer was
delivered by Rabbi Kenneth
Berger of Congregation
Rodeph Sholom, where the
graduation was held. Mrs.
Laura Kreitzer beamed with
energy and excitement as she
spoke to the graduating class.
Keynote speaker, Doug
Cohn, president of Tampa
Jewish Federation, told the
graduates to maintain their
goals and ideals; and wished
them all success in their
endeavors a task which this
group is sure to accomplish.
Mr. Lewis Bush, Social
Studies Teacher, introduced
the graduates as they
delivered brief individual
scholarly messages.
As each graduate spoke, one
became increasingly aware of
the poise, confidence and elo-
quence of the delivery. Each
message was filled with a sen-
sitivity that was so identifiable
to this particular class.
Gila Nadler brought to light
the perception of the Jew in
the Jewish and non-Jewish
world. "My Jewish education
has been more significant in its
teaching of what a Jew is, than
in the more academic phases of
"Throughout the proud
history of our people, the tradi-
tion of study and learning has
made education a vital part of
our identity," believes Shana
Hilk. She spoke of our "com-
mitment" to the Decalogue, a
simple set of pronouncements
which has served as the
keystone for law and order the
world over.
As you listened to Shana
Levine, her convictions
became yours. "In this world
of scientific and technological
assimilation, we could easily
lose contact with Judaism and
G-d ... It is my hope that what
we have learned here has
strengthened that conviction
in each of us."
"Ritual plays an important
part in Jewihs life," Avi
Berger began. She continued
by describing its four main
functions and concluded that
"Ritual serves as a shell
against assimilation."
Finally, Robyn Pegler
reflected on Pirke Avot,
"Chapters of the Fathers."
"The Jewish Community can
only survive if its members
receive the tradition, cherish
it, study it, enhance it, and
transmit it to future
There was a tremendous
sense of pride in each of these
students as they spoke so
clearly and concisely at such
an important occasion.
The Garrison Scholarship
award was presented by Mrs.
Priscilla Taylor for "Recogni-
tion of cordiality, respect for
fellow students, academic
achievement and sincerity of
purpose." The two recipients
were Ian Davidson and Joshua
Certificates of Award were
presented by Jewell Knotts,
Rochelle Lewis and Agostino
"America's future hinges on
the education we give our
children and on the knowledge
and skills, the values and vir-
tues we import to them. The
Presidential Academic Fitness
Award honors students who
have achieved excellence in
their studies." (Ronald
Reagan.) To qualify, grade
point average must be B plus
and standardized achievement
score of 80 percent. Con-
gratulations to all the senioret-
tes for achieving this award.
Diplomas were presented by
George Nathan, president
elect of the School, and Rabbi
Brod gave the closing prayer.
As the new graduates slowly
walked out, the tears gave way
to smiles for this extraor-
dinary group. Their devotion
to their friends, family, and
school, as well-as the caring
that they've always shown to
the younger children is not
likely to be forgotten; but the
example they have set remains
firmly implanted as an inspira-
tion for those future graduates
in the upcoming grades ..
Hillel Time Capsule
The dictionary definition of
"Time capsule" is: A recep-
tacle which holds typical
records and objects from the
current culture set into a cor-
nerstone or in the earth to be
uncovered in a future age!
To the eighth graders at
Hillel, it was an act of love.
They had cared for and nur-
tured the first graders for so
long that a strong bond
developed between them. It
was not unusual for the
"seniorettes" to want to do
something for the first grade
class, memories they would
have for a long time.
The graduating class col-
lected items which would re-
mind the six-year-olds of this
"special" year. They were
then placed in a container,
sealed, presented to the first
grade class at graduation.
What was included in the
assortment of collectibles?
BON JOVI pictures, of course,
as well as some pictures of the
toothless first-graders! Senior
Avi Berger presented first
grade representatives Beryl
Solomon and Jill Hanan with
the box, and Mrs. Lancz, first
grade teacher, will keep it un-
til the first graders graduate.
The anticipated reaction nine
years from now will probably
be "Oh My G-d!" At least
that's what the eighth graders

MORE THAN 100 persons, including survivors of the
original Adass Israel congregation, attended ceremonies

by Klaus Gist, the minister in charge of religious affairs,
that his government is committed to perpetuating the
memory of Jewish life in Germany.
Honecker's attention was drawn to the cemetery by
Mario Offenberg, an Israeli who has recorded the history of
the local Jewish community.

Moment-Of-Silence Law
Continued from Page 1
State of New Jersey in tederal court by a teacher and several parents who claim-
ed it was unconstitutional. The district court ruled against the state. New Jersey
officials appealed to the U.S. Court of Appeals, which upheld the lower court
decision. The state then appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court, which has agreed
to hear it.
THE BRIEF points out that New Jersey school children are not now pro-
hibited from praying privately during their free time at school, so that the crea-
tion by the government of a scheduled silent period proceeds beyond accom-
modation of religion, as required by the Constitution, and constitutes an endorse-
ment of religion, which is constitutionally prohibited.

No, Macaroon is not a

Shamir Says He Raised Ethiopian
Jewish Question on Africa Tour
Premier Yitzhak Shamir said
on his return from West Africa
Sunday that he had raised the
plight of Ethiopian Jews with
the African leaders he met and
urged them "to try to exert
their influence on Ethiopia so
that this problem will be
resolved." There are between
7,000-15,000 Jews remaining
in Ethiopia in dire cir-
cumstances but unable to
Shamir said Israel is ready
to solve the problem "in any
possible way to put an end to
this tragedy." He said of his
hosts, "I found considerable
response among all of
them.... I spoke with heads
of state, I asked them to in-
tervene with the Ethiopian
authorities. Whether and now
far this will help, no one yet
knows. We are trying."
SHAMIR, who visited Togo,
[Cameroon and Liberia, said his
I trip "generated tremendous
[reverberations on the African
continent" and "a number of
African states which had not
yet renewed relations with us
are showing an interest and
are acting in the most suitable
I manner to renew relations."
The countries Shamir visited
I have restored diplomatic rela-
tions with Israel which they
broke during the 1973 Yom
Kippur War. So have Zaire
and Ivory Coast. But 24 other

no ties with Israel.

Maariv reported Sunday
that Israel's eagerness to
make progress in negotiations
with African countries to
renew diplomatic ties, possibly
during Shamir's trip, pro-
mpted some of them to "raise
their price." Maariv quoted an
expert on Africa who accom-
SHAMIR TOLD reporters
on his return that he has "no
doubt that we will see further
renewals of diplomatic rela-
tions in the wake of the visit."
He said, "In general, the heads
of the African states are
satisfied with their relations
with Israel. They are grateful
panied Shamir as saying that
negotiations with certain
African states "became a mat-
ter of bargaining and, in some
cases, even extortion."
According to Maariv
reporters Tamar Golan and
Rafael Mann, the expert was
referring to Equatorial
Guinea, Gabon and the Central
African Republic. The Presi-
dent of Gabon was particularly
blatant, demanding hefty
monetary credit either directly
from Israel or from
Washington via Israel, in addi-
tion to the standard request
for economic aid from Israel,
they reported.
M everything we are doing
for them. Naturally, they
would like to see more aid, but
they are well aware of Israel's
limitations and I also stressed
these limitations: Israel is not
an economic power."
Shamir said he made clear
that what Israel has to offer is
"experience and proficiency
and expertise in various
areas .." which "we are
ready to share with our friends
in all sincerity and in all
seriousness and with concern
for their interests."

case: that killing people for
having been born, which is
what the Nazis did with Jews,
was a crime against humanity,
in a class by itself. It could not
be likened to cruelties in war-
time against combatants and
sometimes innocent but mostly
unintended victims. Verges
tried to shake Frossard's case
with quotations from another
French journalist Hubert
Beuve-Mery who, in another
context, had suggested that
France had to guard against
judging others too harshly in
light of her own record.- No,
said Frossard, killing children
with no parents in a quiet
country home, just because
they were Jews, was a crime
against humanity. It must not
be diluted or equated with
other kinds of misconduct or
cruelties. And Verges sat
He didn't even rise when
resistance fighter Lucien
Margaine told of the deaths of
more than half of the 2,000
people in a transport from
Lyons to a town near Paris.
And most of this time, Klaus
Barbie sat in his cell, refusing
to face the witnesses. But it
doesn't matter because the na-
tion is learning. How?
Laurent, a student at Jean
Perrin High School has just
finished his report on a day's
attendance at the trial. Now
come the questions from fellow
students: "Will he be con-
victed?," asks a Laotian-born
"Well, one can't tell so
quickly," answers Laurent.
"Is the trial an act of
vengeance against Nazism?"
"No," says Laurent.
"But things have changed
(in 40 years)," persists another
"Not Barbie. He hasn't
changed. You must unders-
tand ... he has no regrets at
all. ."
Five members of the 1987 rabbinic class of Hebrew Union College-
Jewish Institute of Religion have been placed in pulpits in Latin
America, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand. While
graduates of the College-Institute have long been found serving the
Jewish community in every state in the nation, in recent years
the College has increased its efforts to recruit and train young
men and women from foreign nations and to place American-
born graduates with foreign congregations, thus intensifying its
commitment to the Jewish community world-wide. The five recent
graduates now serving abroad are (top row, left to right): Edward
Rosenthal, a native of St. Louis, Temple Shalom, Aukiand, New

gregation SIBRA, Porto AUegre, Brazil; Daniel Schiff, a native
of Melbourne, Australia, who has returned home as one of three
rabbis of Temple Beth David; and Michael Datz, a native of

workers and graduate and post graduate scholars at its four cam-
puses in Cincinnati, New York, Los Angeles and Jerusalem.

and flying creatures you wouldn't want in your house.
Let your child dress up, act out and create projects
