We All Died In Tlw Holocaust
EDITORS NOTE: Prof. Bauer is the Head, of the
Instiw.e c/ Contemporary Jewry of the Hebrew Univer-
sity and its Department of Holocaust Studies. His most
recent book is "Afv Brother's Keeper," a history of the
American Joint Distribution Committee. Prof. Bauer is
one of the luminaries of the "First International Scholars
Conference on the Holocaust A Generation After"
which took place in New York March 3-6, under the
sponsorship of Hebrew University and the United Jew-
ish Appeal.
About five weeks ago I went to an armored division in
the Sinai outside Gideon and lectured to the soldiers. 1
visited the commander, a general who was born in Tel Aviv
2 years ago When he hard my subject was the Holocaust,
he said, "Listen, I'll tell you a true story."
His father, a teacher in a secondary school in Tel Aviv,
had an aunt, Doda Zahava (Aunt Goldie) living in Poland
in 1939, married to the owner of a luxury textile shop in
Warsaw, Uncle Abraham.
Uncle Abraham came to Pal
estine in 1939 because he wanted
to immigrate with Zahava and
their three children, to be neai
his brother He was looking
around for a )ob and some place
to live when the war broke out
and he couldn't get back to
Of course. Abraham became
frantic He went from one place
to another, but he couldn't find
help. In 1940, he became a citi
zen of Palestine, and transmitted
papers to Zahava in Poland, say
inx that she was the wife of a
British protect-.! citizen: the
three children were also protect
ed under that same classification

more, and it was quite clear if
they stayed on. they would share
the fate of the mi'lions who
were killed by the Nazis
And then on? day in October
a member of the Jewish Council
came to ZahavH's home accompa
nied by a German.
He said "Yu are the wife of
a citizen of Palestine."
She said, "Yes.'
He said. "There's a train wait

want to. you can join that train
with your three children Th-

Sen. George McGovern
said after a meeting with
Yasir Arafat that "American
policy should take into se-
r i o u s consideration the
question of recognizing the
Palestine Liberation Organ-
ization," according to a re-
port by the Palestinian news
agency WAFA.
The Beirut newspaper An Na-
har reported that the South Da-
kota Democrat who heads the
Senate Foreign Affairs Commit-
tee's subcommittee on Near
Eastern Affairs, and is currently
on a fact-finding tour in Middle
East countries, met with Arafat
for 90 minutes last Friday at
the Senator's request.
THIS MARKED the first meet-
ing between a high-ranking
American politician and the head
of the PLO, An Nahar noted.
McGovern, who was the Dem-
ocratic Party's Presidential can-
didate in 1972, was quoted as
saying that it was "imperative
for some kind of Palestinian na-
tional entity to emerge because
it is difficult to achieve stability
in the area unless the Palestin-
ians exercise an efficient poli-
tical existence."
At the meeting at PLO head-
quarters, Arafat briefed Mc-
Govern on PLO policy and
stressed the 1974 decision by the
Arab summit meeting in Rabat
recognizing the PLO as the sole
representative of the Palestinian
people, the press reports said.
OTHER sources said McGov-
ern indicated after the meeting
that he plans to draft a Middle
East peace plan which, accord-
ing to officials accompanying
him. would be based on the es-
tablishment of relations between
Israel and the Arab countries,
the guarantee of a fair and last-
ing peace by recognizing the
rights that must be accorded to
the Palestinians, the pre-1967
borders and a solution of the
problem of Jerusalem.
McGovern arrived in Beirut
last Wednesday and has visited
Egypt and Saudi Arabia. He
has also scheduled to visit Jor-
dan. Syria, Israel and Iran,' _
CRC Views On Breakdown Of
Egypt-Israel Negotiations
The Community Relations Com-
mittee ef the Jewish Federation
has released a statement offer-
ing information and facts as a
brief insight into the develop-
ments surrounding the suspen-
sions of negotiations aimed at an
interim agreement between Is-
rael and Egypt.
The CRC is planning a series
of meetings with local congres-
sional and public officials to ac-
curately interpret Israel's poi
tion and the community's con-
tinued support of Israel.
The statement points out that:
1) Israel's only concern was
and is the creation of a stable
situation which will insure her
security from attack by Arab
2) Israel was prepared to make
major territorial concessions, in-
cluding the Gidi and Mitla pass-
es in the Sinai, and return of the
Abu Rodeis oil fields in exchange
for necessary Egyptian guaran-
tees of non-belligerency.
3) Egypt refused realistic of-
fers of peace, rejected additional
Israeli withdrawals, and made no
concessions on a guarantee to Is-
rael of freedom from attack.
4) Israel found insufficient
third-nartv offers of help in keep-
ing the ocace. although the U.N.
and the United States' efforts in
this regard are most welcome.
U.S. support of Israel, the untir-
ing peacemaking efforts of Hen-
ry Kissinger, the American Sec-
retary of State, the President and
the Congress, including a 3
month continuation of U.N. forc-
es insuring the cease fire, and
opening of the Suez Canal, are
deeply appreciated.
Letters to the President, Sec-
retary of State and the Foreign
Affairs Committees of the House
and Senate have been sent.
President Ford:
Help Save
Syrian Jews
President Gerald Ford
The White House
Washington. D.C. 2esee
We, the undersigned, view with concern the growing crisis facing
Jews in Syria. The 4.500 members of Syria's Jewish community
have too long been subject to arbitrary arrests, imprisonment
and torture.
Restriction of movement, constant police surveillance, severe
economic restrictions, special identification cards marked with
the word "Jew", denial of the right to higher education and the
right to practice their chosen professions, are only some of the
indignities inflicted upon these unfortunate people.
Therefore, we call upon you. President Ford, to intervene
personally, using the power and prestige of your office to urge the
President of Syria to:
1. Cms* the persecution of the Jewish citizens of Syria
and to Insure the* human rlfMs and dignity;
2. Request the Syrian Government to permit the emigration
of Syrian Jews

ReassessmentFor YUiom?
In the light of the failure of Dr. Kissingers Middle
Eastern mission, the statement he has made at a press
conference and references to the so-called light at the
end of the tunnel, the time has come for a reassessment
on the part of the Jewish community in tune with de-
veloping events.
It is shortsighted and of no value to detach Israel
from the rest of the world. The situation in the Middle
East is part of global developments in Vietnam.
Cambodia, Portugal, Greece, Turkey, Cyprus, Ethiopia
and the oil cartel.
Kissinger's statement that South Vietnam requires
a program of three-year support is vapid in the face of
a similar reassessment going on vis-a-vis Israel and the
Middle East.
It ignores domestic considerations and a distaste
for an unpopular war. However, Kissinger does not of-
fer an even-handed three-year program of support for
Israel. He confesses: "We are committed to Israel's sur-
But survival needs definition, and the nature of
that definition can best come from Israel.
We Have to Look Forward
Kissinger also referred to the dangers of "radicali-
zation" in the Middle East without specifying their na-
ture. Did he have in mind the assassination of King
Faisal, or did he have in mind what Edmund Stillman.
director of the Hudson Institute, said in his Op-Ed
article of the New York Times on Mar. 26: "Trouble is
bound to come in the region within the next ten years.
Political take-overs ana palace revolutions by imported
mercenaries and 'craftsmen-slaves' is one of the oldest
themes of Middle Eastern history."
Obviously, far-sighted statesmen have to look for-
ward. But not with blindness. The view has to be total.
Even Kissinger had to admit events elsewhere in
the world had their effect on the failed attempt at un-
tying the Middle East tangle. Perhaps then, it would be
best, aa so many rnori :s are now saying, for the
peace negotiations to take place in Geneva.
There, under global spotlight, the world will be
.ble to see what is going on. No executive sen
nere, or if there is a behind-the-scenes dealing, it will
have to come to light in the public debate.
The Soviet Union, not immune to world pressure,
and just as aware of developments in the Middle East
potentially inimical to its interests, will have half the
responsibility. It will not be able to take pot shots, as it
has been doing, when it had no responsibility.
A Mutuality of Respect
The return of the Orthodox branch of Judaism to
the Synagogue Council of America is welcome after
so long a disaffection.
But the return carries with it the Orthodox
branch's stipulation that it still does not recognize the
legitimacy of either the Conservative or Reform*
Under these circumstances, it may be hard to see
what the Orthodox move means in terms of healing the
breach among the various religious affiliations of Amer-
ican Jewry.
For one thing, the return itself at least heals the
schism on the surface, and that is a good thing.
For another, it affords an opportunity for those in
the Orthodox branch who may be more moderate on
this question to engage in active dialogue with members
of the Conservative and Reform movements.
The issue here is not to challenge Orthodoxy to
argue that the return is meaningless if it is not accom-
panied by statements of accreditation to the others.
Rather, the issue is that perhaps a beginning has
been made toward a mutuality of respect in the name
of total Judaism.

that Rabin was strongly urged

A White House spokesman
said that "we don't normally dis-

On Rise
ham Shavit. president-elect of
the Israel Manufacturers Asso-
ciation, said here that Israel's
industrial output in 1974 was
15 percent more than in 1973
and reached a tctal value of
$1,250 billion.
He spoke at a press coher-
ence sponsored by the American
Jewish Committee. Shavit said
it was a distortion of the condi-
tion of Israel's economy to de-
scribe it as facing an "economic
collapse." This evaluation "is
not true," h added, but admit-
ted that Israel was facing eco-
nomic problems.
HOWEVER, he said, these dif-
ficulties are shared by all the
industrialized countries, citing
the impact of inflation and
shortages of raw materials as
the major problems of Israel and
other industrialized nations.
Shavit, who arrived here for a
three-week speaking tour for the
Israel Bond Organization, said
Israel's economy was further
burdened by a costly defense
budget, which consumes 40 per-
cent of Israel's GNP. and by the
need to absorb immigrants.
He said outlays for defense
and immigration were inflation-
ary, adding that "these expendi-
tures are like pouring fuel" on
Israel's inflation.
SHAVIT, who is managing di-
rector of Shavit Oven, the larg-
est plant of its kind in Lsrael,
warned that the recently inten-
sified economic warfare by the
Arabs was "a threat to the
whole industrial world" and not
only to Israel.
He said petro-dollars and oil
were "sophisticated weapons in
the hands of not very sophisti-
cated people," the Arabs. He
warned there was a danger that

Envoy Denies His
Meddling Words
JERUSALEM (JTA) Daniel Nestor, the economic
and commercial attache at the United States Consulate in
East Jerusalem, denied to the Jewish Telegraphic Agency
that he had made remarks disparaging to Israel at a recent
meeting with West Bank Arab businessmen in Ramallah.
According to press reports here, Neston said at a Ra-
mallah Chamber of Commerce meeting that the West Bank,
ers soon will not need Israeli permits to conduct business
"because Israel will have nothing to say in these matters."
NESTOR ALSO allegedly advised the Arab merchants
to do business directly with American firms rather than
through Israeli or Jordanian firms and suggested that they
open their own office in the U.S. to encourage American
investments on the West Bank.
Nestor told the JTA that he had said nothing of a
political nature to the Ramallah Chamber of Commerce
What If Israel Shunned Talks at Geneva?

Ditto far GeraM Ford, that wit;

also is Kissinger's.

ler, interviewed on Air Force

President's talks with Anwar
The Arabs, he was surprised to
discover, were not as pessimistic
as he expected despite those
nasty old Israelis. They were still
hopeful, the petrobillionaire
would have us know in a message
from his fellow-petrobillicnaires.
THEN TO return to the origi-
nal thesis: Suppose they gave
Geneva, and Israel didn't attend?
After all, the Ford-Kissinger
impatience with an "intransi-
gent" and "stubborn" Israel is all
the scenario the Russians and
Arabs need to be stubborn and
intransigent in equal and oppo-
site directions. Why should Is-
rael attend?
Would the United States join
the Soviets, the only bargainer
that really counts, in punishing:
Israel? That depends upon what
one means by punishment.
Even given the growing sense
of isolationism seizing the
American Congress, and particu-
larly with respect to Israel the
palpable development of anti-Is-
rael feeling based on the real-
politik of oil and expressed in
classical anti-Semitic terms, I can
not conceive of a cut-off imposed
on Israel in the same way thai
the Congress is imposing a cut-
off on Southeast Asia.
MOST PEOPLE mav not under-
stand the subtle distinction be-
tween Maoism and Muscovite
Communism, but they know as a
practical matter that what is at
stake in the Middle East is the
ascendancy of the latter, not the
(That is why we are abandon-
ing Southeast Asia, which is fall-
ing victim to the formerthe Ma-
oists. Not only do we not popu-
larly understand that each is
oquUy dangerous, but in fact the
legacy of the Nixon years is that
we have come to regard the Ma-
oists as the latter-day Noble Sav
age undeserving of the reserve
between ourselves and the Muv
covitos. In fact, detente with th
Maoists ia part of what the Ford
administration sees as unfinished

Furthermore, a diminished and
mortally-threatened Israel would
be a greater danger to Europe
than any single semen inwardly-
turned European nation, includ-
ing the elegant French, can pos-
sibly imagine at this time.
peans may prefer to see the U.S.
out of Europe, it is a matter of
American security that at least
some U.S. presence in Europe
NOT be killed. Israel is a major
factor in this regard.
There is, of course, always the
tax-exempt status of UJA against
which the Congress can turn, but
that kind of blackmail would,
work in too nrniv non-Jewish di-
rection* as well, and could hard-
ly et off the ground short of the
emergence of a frank, selective
political American anti-Semitism.
In sum. for America to join
Russia in punishing Israel under
any circumstances would be for
America to punish America, as
well, although that viewpoint may
not be eminently clear in the be-
fogged American congressional
consciousness yet.
Hence. Israel might well con-
ceive of ignoring Geneva. The
Romans mav have already staked
out the arena, and may indeed
have their well-oiled lions at the
ready, but at least for the mo-
ment the necessity for Israel to
submit to being eaten is less ur-
gent than we may think.

What is the status of Jews
in Turkey?
In 1969. says the authoritative
Encyclopj.-dia Judaica. there
were 35-40.000 Jews in Turkey,
nearly all Sephardim. of whom
30.000 lived in Istanbul. Ashken-
azim. called 'Poles" by the Turks
because of the 17th and 18th
century immigration from Po-
land, accounted for 35 per cent
of the Jews. German-speaking
Ashkenazim who arrived later
from Austria formed the elite of
the community, and the Great
Synagogue built by them became
known as the "Austrian Temple."
After the death of the last of-
ficiating Rabbi (1944). the con-

synagogue and cemetery and are
completely separated from the
rest of the community.
The peace treaty of Lausanne
(July 24. 1923) followed by the
abolition of the caliphate, assur-

key their personal status as pro-
vided by their religious canons.
The Turkish republic was declar-
ed a secular state, and Kemal
Ataturk, its founder, attempted
to erase all signs of the religious-
institutional influence of Islam
and also to maintain equality of
Christianity and Judaism in pub

on teaching Hebrew in schools
was a hard blow. After Ataturk's
death in 1938. many of the pro-

eased, but the general attitude
toward the religious minorities
remained unchanged.
Nevertheless, says the E J,

ful machines to do o ir work,
our counting, we have forgotten
in the process that man fJto
counts; that man must be ac-
counted for.
WE ARE so involved in (Mags,
in numbers, that peop.e have be-
come unimportant. The needs of
the human spirit are being
neglected. In spite of all our
mathematical calculations our
mathematical calculations, our
and the conquest of spaceas
well as the threat of total de-
struction, we have left out one
vital factor, the human element.
We have forgotten man. And
because of this miscalculation,
things just don't add up right.
In counting our dollars, posses-
sions, and achievements, there is
something missing. Numbers
have not brought us happiness
or fulfillment.
Scripture alludes to this. This
week's text reads: "And you
shall count unto you from the
morrow. ." (Lev. 23:15) ... If
life is to be orderly and organ-
ized, it must be done by count-
Mathematics is important. But
all your counting should be re-
lated to "you," that is. to man;
to the true needs of the human
I>ersonality and not to one's
ambitions and vanities.
.Man must count. We must
consider his dignity and his in-
dividual worth.
"So teach us to number our
days that we may get us a heart
of wisdom." IPs. 90).

fbis thesis is developed with strong documentary
ether corroboration in a new book by ace re-
lr turned historical-novelist. Dan Kurzman, "The
I for Rome." published by Doubleday and Co.
UK/MAN, author of the popular "Genesis 1948"
ic foundation of the State of Israel, was formerly
l-ranking roving correspondent for "The Washing-
lost." He is currently in Israel researching for his
hook, a detailed account of the Warsaw ghetto
in :.
("The Race for Rome" took Kurzman three years
fearch and write. While dialogue and description
ividly written, they are carefully credited in foot-
and addenda.
funman explained that he was anxious to avoid
riticism or allegations that he had "created" dia-
-as were levelled against him by some review
Genesis 1948," quite wrongly, he says.
THE HITLER plot to kidnap the Pope is authenti-
cated by interviews Kurzman conducted with SS Gen-
eral Karl Wolff, now living quietly in Germany after
serving a 20-year prison term.
Wo'.ff recalled from his own contemporary notes
the day Hitler called him from Rome to the Nazi HQ
in September, 1943, and ordered him to prepare a plan
to occupy the Vatican and kidnap the Pope.
Wolff says today that though he obeyed the order
to plan the assault, he would never have actually car-
ried it out. Kurzman writes, too. that other top Ger-
man generals and officials serving in Italy had their
grave doubts about the wisdom of Hitler's planamong
them Ambassador Ernst von Wiezsaecker.
This, however, did not prevent the Ambassador
from pointedly hinting at the "violent reaction" that
could be expected from Hitler, both against the Jews
and against the Church, if he (the Ambassador) weqe
tc relay to Berlin the protest which the Vatican sought
. to make in October,.when the SS began rounding up
the Jews of the Roman ghetto.
KURZMAN dramatically describes how a sympa-
thetic Italian Princess. Enza Pignn'elli, told the Pope
at his dawn mass of the deportation of the Jews of
Rome, how the Pope expressed his shocked incredulity,
how he ordered his Secretary of State, Cardinal Mag-
tione, to protest to Germany, how the Cardinal met
with Ambassador Von Wiezsaecker with the thought
uppermost in both their minds being Hitler's known
desire to kidnap the Pope and occupy the Vatican
when, and if, the opportunity presented itself.
The Secretary of State expressed the Pope's protest
at the deportation, and then agreed to the envoy's
unprecedented diplomatic suggestion: that he not con-
vey the Papal protest to Berlin.

Christianity, Synagogs
And the Jews Today
* *H* tkrkh&r Friday, April 11, 1975
^ ROY ECKHARDT is a Methodist clergyman
who is a friend of Jews and Israel. His book
"Your People, My People" (New York. Quadran
gle Books, $8.96. 275 pp.) is his recent attempt
to advance Jewish-Christian understanding. The
Pope and the Vatican secretariat would be well
advised to read it.
The author traces the history of Church anti
Semitism inspired by New Testament sources and
times to the post-Holocaust era.
HE STRESSES that the integrity of Chris
tianity is involved unless there is a sharp de-
viation in Christian theology and attitudes. He
appeals for Christian penitence. His chapters
"Toward Authenticity" and "Deeds." are exeel
lent springboards for true Jewish-Christian dia
He affirms that Christian anti-Zionism and
evenhandedness represent anti-Semitism in a new
form. He states that. "The serious danger in
preachments stressing Arab rights is a strengthen-
ing of those forces and interests that are bent
upon the destruction of the Jews of Israel" .
ORBIS BOOKS, of Maryknoll. New York,
have published several books that present in
teresling views.
Among these are "The Jewish Jesus," by
Robert Aron, $4 95, 183 pp.); "Rich Church-Poor
Church." by Enzo Gatti ($495. 127 pp.); "African

Dr. Benjamin Spock, who has counseled so
often against violence, now scolds our UN Am
bassador John A. Scali for speaking out against
the tyranny of the new majority in the UN, a
majority extending an unprecedented welcome to
the Palestine Liberation Organization's leader
through-murder, Yasir Arafat.
ROGER N. BALDWIN, who at 91 is honored
for his unending battles against totalitarian fore
es. astounds his friends by declaring that the
General Assembly, having recognized the PLO,
is now closer than ever to functioning "as a uni-
versal agency for mankind."
Homer A. Jack, secretary general of the
World Conference on Religion and Peace, de
clares he is a-hamed of Ambassador Scaii and
mutters that the United States "hardly has clean
hands in this controversy."
By their rationalizations and sophisms, this

"The Jewish Jesus" is a biography of Jesua
gleaned not so much frem Christian sources as
from Jewish sources and prayers which the au
thor asserts shaped the life of the man.
WHILE ONE can differ from much of the
Christian interpretation in the book, the render
ing of the Jewish liturgy and Aron's appeal for
the use and understanding of prayer is one that
should be heeded.
Idowu's book has many scholarly pages de-
fining religion and its study as well as a surfeit
of other definitions of religious terms. "African
Traditional Religion" does not discuss the many
different religious sects or faiths in the Dark
Continent but primarily the basics of religion and

the Catholic Church to task for not embracing the
poor to a much greater extent. He appeals for
Christianity to elevate deeds above liturgy.
His theology is Christ-oriented, and conse-
quently his interpretations of the Bible and the
po i Jesus era are clouded by this factor.
ONE OF the stated purposes of the UN,
clearly spelled out in its charter, is "to be a
center for harmonizing the actions of nations in
the attainment of (certain) common ends"
those objectives including the achievement of
international cooperation in solving problems of

When a president of the General Assembly
for the first time in the body's history uses that
high post for political advantage, when represen-
tatives of the Arab-Asian-African bloc arbitrarily
try to legislate the State of Israel out of exis-
tence, how can Americans like Spock, Baldwin,
and Jack justify their contribution to the schem-
ing, offensive activities of the new majority?
LET DR. SPOCK and Messrs. Baldwin and
Jack consider for a moment one of the Third
World bloc's excuses for banning Israel from
UNESCO European regional membership. What t
was Israel's transgression?
