SONNY IS an exponent, prac-
Itioner and teacher of mosaic art
and uses vinyl tile instead ot
traditional stone or marble. He
has taught his art at Piper High
School in Tamarac, Da vie High
School and Fort Lauderdale High
School. He hopes this fall to
begin a class at the Jewish Com-
munity Center.
Just last month, on Israel's
30th anniversary of statehood,
Sonny came to the Jewish
Federation bearing an approp-
riate gift an original vinyl tile
mosaic commemorating the
birthday. The mosaic is on dis-
play in the Federation building
(see photo).
"Mosaic art," Sonny explains,
"is one of the oldest forms of
artistic expression, going back to
the days of the Roman Empire.
In those times, ceramic tile was
the basic material that was used.
Surface decorations were made
by inlaying small pieces of
various colored materials to form
a picture or design."
SONNY believes that his use

the federation staff. The original vinyl mosaic hangs in the
office of the Federation's executive director.
allows him to achieve a three
dimensional, detailed and multi-
colored effect without the use
of paint that goes beyond the
effects achieved in the traditional
mosaic. He achieves his color
effects by the use of different
pieces of vinyl in each of his com-
positions. His work is largely of

Campaign Totals Double Last Year's
A victory party for the more
than 60 volunteers who served as
building and area chairmen and
workers in Inverrary's 1977-78
UJA campaign was the scene
recently for the announcement
that the drive had virtually
doubled last year's total result.
Joe Kaplan, the Inverrary
UJA chairman, reported that the
campaign this year amassed over
$160,000, almost a 100 percent
/ Was a Nazi Victim-Fedorenko
Feodore Fedorenko took the
ktand on his own behalf last week
lo answer charges by government
Witnesses that he was a war
briminal at Treblinka con-
centration camp.
At the concluding week of the
Irial in U.S. District Court in
Fort Lauderdale, defendant
Fedorenko, proclaiming his
nnocence, stated that he "never"
ktruck. whipped, beat or shot any
prisoners at Treblinka. While
kdmitting that he did do guard
luty for the Germans there,
Fedorenko said that if he had dis-
I d German orders at any
lime, he would have been shot
[\li.wn like a dog."
Judtfe Norman Roettger at his
Jenaturalization Hearing,
Fedorenko is hoping to maintain
Ills American citizenship, jeo-
pardized by accusations that he
Bed about his activities when
Obtaining his visa to the U.S. in
According to Roettger, the
pase will be greatly determined
*ith consideration of the nature
\>i Fedorenko's World War II
utuation, and whether his ac-
tions were "vohintarv". rather
than on lies and omissions on his
immigration forms.
Roettger told Assistant U.S.
Attorney Don Boswell thp.t he
"would have to admit" that if
Fedorenko might have been -
barred from the U.S. for admit-
ting he was a guard at Treblinka,
Jewish prisoners who lived by
their labor there, might also have
been barred.
think it's unbelievable to think
that a prisoner who has to worry
every day if he will wake up alive
the next morning would be con-
sidered to have voluntarily as-
sisted the German Army."
Fedorenko's testimony about
Treblinka paints a picture of a
guard completely different than
that which government witnesses
have portrayed. The Ukrainian-
born defendant not only denies
all accusations that he brutalized
Jewish prisoners but even claims
to have attempted saving a Jew
from being beaten.
"Why are you hitting him?
Can't you see that he is old and
thin thin and weak and old?"
he testified that he asked one
Nazi guard.
When Fedorenko was assigned
to a tower that had a view of
bodies being unloaded from
Treblinka s gas chambers, he told
his supervisor: "1 can't sleep. I
can't eat. I don't want to go back
to that post again."
Church Lauded For
Support of Jews
In appreciation of the
United Methodist Church for
its recent adoption of a reso-
lution expressing solidarity
with Soviet Jewry, Alvin
Segal of Fort Lauderdale
presented the opening toast
to the Church at the seventh
Annual Awards Banquet of
the Broward County Human
Relations Division.
The resolution was
adopted at last month's
Florida Annual Conference
of the United Methodist
increase compared to the 1976-77
result of $82,500.
ON HAND to help celebrate
the victory were Charles Locke, the
UJA's general chairman, and
Jack Sylvester, chairman of
Inverrary's International Village
UJA drive.
Kaplan presented Certificates
of Merit to the volunteers for
"outstanding achievement on
behalf of the people of Israel and
the Greater Fort Lauderdale
Jewish community."

Good Business to Support U J A
The UJA campaign has entered a new phase with a
drive to secure the support of business establishments
throughout Greater Fort Lauderdaie. A handsome sticker
has been prepared that merchants can display in their
windows or on their cash registers showing that they are
supporters of the Jewish Federation's UJA.
The effort is moving ahead with vigor all over north
Broward and businessmen are starting to respond. In west
Broward particularly in the areas west of Interstate 95
where the bulk of the Jewish population lives and does
its buying and marketing more and more Jews are
giving to the UJA.
It is in order to expect that merchants will emulate
their customers. As a matter of fact, it's even good
business. After all. the merchant who displays the
Federation sticker identifying his establishment as a
supporter of the UJA is bound to win the good will of his
many Jewish customers while those who don't are
almost certain to raise questions as well as eyebrows.
Jack B. Nudelman is the chairman of the UJA Busi-
ness Campaign. Owner and president of a Pompano Beach
wholesale lumber company. Mr. Nudelman is taking time
from a busy enterprise to assure the largest possible sums
of money that are needed to underwrite the Federation s
humanitarian programs and obligations here and abroad.
We applaud Mr. Nudelman s acceptance of that
responsibility and hold him up to his peers as an
exemplar of the enlightened businessman. We can add
only this: Come on. Mr. Merchant, give a helping hand
and a generous gift.
The Judge is Off Base
This issue of The Jewish Fioridian reports the yizkor
service that was held on the last day of Shavuoth in front
of the federal courthouse where Feodor Fedorenko was on
trial for having obscured his role as a guard at the
Treblinka death camp when he applied for U.S. citizen-
A number of incidents and statements in connection
with the trial have had the effect of inflaming public
opinion and of obscuring the issues the court is being
called on to decide. The statements bv the presiding
judge. Norman C. Roettger. Jr.. have been so intemperate
"unjudicial" is one way they have been described as
to have brought forth the editorial wrath and "disbelief"
of The Miami Herald.
"The trial has been a highly emotional one.' the
Herald commented editorially, "and it would appear some
of the emotionalism has worn off on the judge."
One of Roettger s less than judicious comments was
that some of the prosecution witnesses brought to Fort
Lauderdaie from Israel by the Justice Department have
been "combative, hostile and intensive." and that they
were "coached."
Were the judge to rule in Fedorenko's favor that is,
acquit him there would be not only an instantaneous
appeal but a motion for a mistrial based on the judge's
improprieties, on and off the bench. His characterization
of the prosecution's witnesses were given in a luncheon
recess press conference complete with TV cameras on the
courthouse lawn. Incredible but true!
"Justice, justice shalt thou pursue," Isaiah exhorted.
Let justice be done. Let it be done forthwith, as Joei
Reinstein said at the yizkor service. That's in our
tradition. It is our tradition. It is also the American
tradition. Let all abide by it.
Dulzin Warns of More Dropouts
JERUSALEM (JTA) World Zionist Organization
Chairman Leon Dulzin warned here of a possible 70 percent and
more rate of Soviet dropouts at Vienna. He said that would
endanger the entire struggle for aliya inside the Soviet Union.
Just back from New York, he told newsmen here that he
had urged HIAS and the Joint Distribution Committee to
desist from their activities at the Vienna transit station.
HE FELT the Jewish Agency should be the only organ
operating there.
Dulzin, who is also Jewish Agency acting chairman,
disclosed that dropout rates over the past two months had
topped 60 percent. If they went up to 70 or 80 percent, which
was unfortunately possible, he said, this could be a death blow
for the aliya struggle.
FOUR YEARS ago. when
Alexander Solzhenitsyn first
came west, he had some stern
words for us. They were made all
the more stern by our mistaken
anticipation that he would
welcome his new-found freedom
Instead. Solzhenitsyn offended
many westerners with his view of
our "weakness and greed and
indifference to human suffering.
IN ESSENCE, the Russian
expatriate mourned the loss of all
possibility and hope in the Com-
munist revolutionary world that
had evicted him at the same time
that he showed only hatred and
contempt for the capitabst-dom
mated western world that, as he
saw it. failed to meet man's basic
living needs.
On balance, it seemed, he
grieved for the imperfection in
what he had left behind; while he
could do little more than dig in to
suffer the western life that lay
ahead of him, mainly its moral

Taxes and Man-Eating Sharks
Taxes and the man-eating
shark bear a remarkable simil-
arity: everyone's against them.
Put the question on the ballot,
and there is little doubt that most
Americans would vote against
them. And logically so.
One doesn't take this "tax
revolt" lightly by pointing up its
emotional factor. The fact that it
is probably more ignorant
emotion than intelligent
emotion in the case of the
notorious California Proposition
13 is no reason to ignore the
"message" that government
doesn't seem to be hearing in the
executive offices and the legis-
lative chambers.
AS A LIBERAL with an
acquired instinct against Tax-
payers' leagues and their equiva-
lents, I have watched over many
years the misdirection of their
wrath. It is the public schools,
the poor, the mental institutions,
the hospitals, recreation, etc..
whom they would victimize with
their lax-cutting axes.
And the few dollars they save
on their homes in a year are like
nothing compared with the extra
millions they have put in the
pockets of those who really own
American property.
There is nothing new about the
unpopularity of the property tax
Candidates ranging from dog-
catcher to President (George
Wallace. George McGovem and
Richard Nixon all hammered
away in 1972, for instance) work
the subject to political ad-
WHEN IT goes on the ballot
- in school budget elections, for
instance it has been an almost
certain loser in the past decade.
One of the obvious reasons is that
something like half the adults in
this country own property; they
show up to vote, as they did in
California and other states last
But. as with aU wealth in
America, it is only the few who
really will benefit from this
revolt against the property
tax. In Florida, the latest study
available showed that home-
owners contributed only 30 5
percent of the total property
taxes. -_"
Thus the commercial and
industrial property owners will
stand to gain the most, as they
will throughout the nation.
Studies reveal that between 50
and 60 percent of the real estate
is held by the top one-tenth of the
property owners.
REAL TAX relief for property
owners can only come with real
tax reform, and that seems about
as imminent as the coming of the
Messiah. Glancing randomly
through the Journal of f**
Florida Senate for May 31. I
picked up a bill that would
exempt feed for racehorses and
certain other horses" from tte
sales tax; another, under
"Miscellaneous Exemptions,
would exempt "religious, char
itable and educational" organiza-
tions from the tax on tangible
personal property.
It is virtually impossible to
count the loopholes and the
special interests. Practically
everyone who pays any taxes has
at least one. The middle-class
homeowner who shrieks wit*
pain over his property taxes
imposes a burden on renters and
others with that classic*1

Herzog Addresses BB Israel Commission
Appalled at Mention of JDL
Sol Hechtkopf from Lauderhill
attended a B'nai B'rith Israel
Commission meeting in New
York and heard Chaim Herzog,
Israel's Ambassador to the
United Nations speak at a dinner
in tribute to his service at the
United Nations.
The Ambassador reviewed the
Middle East situation and
pointed out that despite Egypt's
President Anwar Sadat's
frequent appearances on U.S.
talk shows, public relations
cannot replace serious nego-
tiations between the parties.
IT WAS Sadat, he said, who
broke off talks with Israel early
this year.
Herzog declared that "Israel is
deeply committed to the nego-
tiations and determined to break
down the barriers that have
Disadvanlaged Trained To
Become Social Workers
perimental program in which a
number of social work students
from disadvantaged backgrounds
are offered extra academic help to
enable them to work in depressed
neighborhoods has been inaugur-
ated by the Paul Baerwald School
of Social Work of the Hebrew
I niversity.
The program was announced
by Ralph I. Goldman, executive
vice president of the Joint Dis-
tribution Committee.
GRANTS from a private
American donor, Raquel New-
man of Los Altos, Calif., and the
Joint Distribution Committee,
enabled the school to get the
project started. Goldman said.
The Israel Ministry of Labor and
Social Affairs is also providing
partial support for research and

The new students ten this
year are all academically qual-
ified." Goldman said. However,
they fall slightly below the cut-off
point for acceptance into a school
where seven applicants compete
for each available place. Once
accepted, they must meet the
same standards of performance
as their fellow students.'*
lecturer in the Paul Baerwald
School, who proposed the project
and saw it through to approval
by the University's central ad-
missions committee, points out
that many minority and "dis-
advantaged" (he prefers the term
"opportunity deprived")
students fall into the top half of
the applicants and, although they
do not possess the same edu-
cational background as their
colleagues, they may still be good
risks for success in social work.
"The plan is not meant to
lower standards in the Uni-
versity, but rather to demon-
strate that an imaginative ap-
proach can succeed in at least one
field of study social work
where the old policy, in effect,
ruled out an important pool of
potential professionals," Dr.
Jaffe said.
The criteria for selecting the
students included low edu-
cational level of the mother, large
number of brothers and sisters,
and a city slum or development
town background. The ten
selected, eight of whom are from
the Edot Hamizrach, include

Arabs. The project will be
assessed with a view to its
possible adoption by other Israeli
social work schools.
THE PILOT stage of the
project will run four years. By
reaching out to the community,
actively recruiting potential
social workers from low income
and minority backgrounds, and
providing educational and eco-
nomic help after they are ad-
mitted, the school hopes to make
a positive contribution to the
social work profession and to the
population served by the social

too long."
But he cautioned, "It took the
U.S. 13 years to negotiate a
treaty with Panama. It took the
U.S. four years to negotiate a
treaty with Vietnam. Why should
Israel be expected to agree on all
aspects of a 30-year-old conflict in
15 hours?"
DURING its three-day
meeting, the Commission called
on each district to establish an
Israel Commission, recom-
mended that each such com-
mittee set up a crisis-response
network to mobilize members to
act on Israel-oriented issues.
It was also suggested that each
lodge establish an Israel Public
Affairs Committee, a "crisis hot
line" to the Washington office
and a campaign to register 30,000
new $1.000 Israel Bond holders in
honor of Israel's 30th an-
In addition, the Commission
pressed for completion of B'nai
B'rith's commitment to the con-
struction of the B'nai B'rith
Liberty Bell Plaza in Jerusalem
and endorsed greater publicity of
aliyah-oriented activities.

For a Jewish newspaper to

terrible man that is ... he should

Why, then, did he speak to
Wagner as he did in Sao Paolo

thinking how to handle it." he
said. "I knew that Wagner's
friends at Sobibor had called him

FOR WAGNER, it was the
end of a 30-year half-life as a
member of the world's most un-
pleasant club: the dreary world of
the escaped Nazi. Franz Stangl
was his closest fellow member.
By the end of the war, Stangl
and Wagner were already good
friends. They escaped from
Europe together in June, 1948,
down the so-called "Rome
Route" with the help of Bishop
Alois Hudal. (Strangl had hidden
his identity in an American
internment camp and then
walked out of an open prison in
Austria: Wagner had lain low as
a building laborer in Graz.)

FOR A TIME, Wagner could
be seen around Sao Paolo
"looking like a beggar," ac-
cording to Frau Stangl. "with
torn clothes and shoes." But
some time after this, he set up
home with a German woman who
owned a small farm in a village
about 25 miles away.
They apparently had two
children. And it was from there,
on Apr. 20 this year, that Wagner
set out for Rio de Janeiro and a
Nazi rally to celebrate Hitler's
birthday. It was from a photo-
graph taken at this rally that
Nazi-hunter Simon Weisenthal
recognized him.

that I was a bad man," Wagner
said to Stanislav Szmajzner. He

Israel's Reply To
U.S. Remains Vague

was premature for Israel to
make any concrete state-
The Carter Administra-
tion has asked for Israel's
proposals for the West
Bank after the five-years of
Premier Menachem Begin's
proposed "self-rule" plan
for West Bank residents.
"Much depends on what
will happen during the five
years," Dayan noted.
Dayan said West Bank
sovereignty could be left
open, but that if it is raised
Israel would assert its
claim to the territory.
DAYAN SAID he believed
Jordan could accept the self-rule
proposal as the first stage in an
eventual settlement.
Meanwhile, Israeli sources said
Israel will not change its position
on a peace settlement despite
Egyptian President Anwar
Sadat's threat of a renewed mili-
tary struggle. Sadat, addressing
troops of the Egyptian Army at
Ismailia June 6, said they must
be prepared "for the completion
of the battle of liberation if there
is no alternative, and if Israel
continues not to understand what
is behind the peace initiative."
In Washington, the State De-
partment said it does not believe
that Sadat has raised the war op-
tion. "We have no reason what-
soever to doubt that he continue
to support the effort to reach a
comprehensive peace settlement
in the Middle East," State De-
partment spokesman Hodding
Carter said.
BUT LABOR Alignment lead-
er Shimon Peres accused Sadat
of aggravating the present deli-
cate situation. But he stressed
that the door to negotiations was
still open. Former Foreign Min-
ister Yigal Allon said Sadat in his
recent statements "is urging to
achieve a settlement on his own

tiations but rather by dictating

right to national self-determ-

anachronistic, based on the
assimilationist premise that

with Palestine. It is the physical

This blatant double standard
exposes the demagogic character
of contemporary anti-Zioniam,
which, for all its anti-racialist and
anti imperialist rhetoric, has
increasingly borrowed the
methods, style and slogans of
classic anti-Semitism.
INSTEAD OF the individual
Jew or the "Jews" as a dispersed
community, it is the collective
representation of the Jewish
people the State of Israel
which is the chosen target. Its
(M'rsonality and identity are
style of the anti-Semite carica-

Israel is the alien intruder in

capitalist exploiter, the dis-
inheritor of an indigenous Arab
peasantry and the agent of a
sinister conspiracy to enslave the
Anti-Zionism would be of less

is now operating in a favorable
international environment.
Perhaps the most striking sign of
this has been the mobilization of
Third World nations against
Israel in the name of a global,
anti-imperialist front.
UNDER Communist leader-
ship and inspiration, the Jewish
State has been presented to
developing nations as a
dangeroui obstacle to the world-
wide process of decolonization.
No doubt, if Israel does opt for an
expansionist policy, it will lend
credence to this campaign.
No doubt, too. Third World
anti Zionism has also been fueled
by the promise of petrodollars
and is a side effect of increasing
Arab influence. But it is dis-

Similarly, the link between U*

The dependence of the West on
Arab oil has led to a general
mood of inclining towards the
appeasement of extremist Arab
and Palestinian demands.
ANTI-ZIONISM in the 1970s
has been able to capitalize on the
general crisis of the international
economic and political system
and turn it against Israel The
branding of the Jewish State as
"racist" by a majority of the
United Nations in November
1975, would have been incon-
ceivable without this general
change in the international

What if Packard-Moynihan Becomes Law?
Special Counsel,
American Jewish Congress
The Packwood-Moynihan bill,
which would allow an income tax
credit to parents who pay tuition
for their children in private
schools at the elementary,
secondary and college levels, once
again brings to the fore the split
within American Judaism on the
troublesome question of govern-
mental aid to parochial schools.
Religious American Jewry is
generally divided into three
groupings: the Reform or Liber-
al, the middle-of-the-road Con-
servative, and the Orthodox.
Each of the groups is represented
by two major organizations, one
representing the rabbis and the
other the congregations.
THESE SIX organizations are
somewhat loosely joined in a
single association known as the
Synagogue Council of America.
The expressed views of the Syna-
gogue Council are generally ac-
cepted as the positions of the
American Jewish religious com-
munity. The Council, however, is
bound by the rule of unanimity,
under which it may not take a
position on any public issue
unless all six constituents agree
on it.
For the first two decades of its
existence that is, until the
mid-1960"s the Synagogue
Council was unanimous in its
positions respecting religious
freedom and the separation of
church and state. Specifically, it
urged the broadest degree of reli-
gious freedom consistent with
maintenance of public order and
opposed government involve
ment in religious affairs. As to
the latter, it opposed both reli-
gious teachings or practut-
within the public schools and
governmental financing of reli-
gious chools.
Consistent with its policies, the
Council submitted friend-of-the-
court briefs of the U.S. Supreme
Court in a number of cases in-
volving the religious liberty
clause of the First Amendment.
THUS, it urged the Court to
hold unconstitutional compul-
sory Sunday closing laws, at
least insofar as they were en-
forced against persons whose
religious convictions compelled
them to observe a day other than
Sunday as their holdy day of rest.
So. too. it submitted a brief ar-
guing that a person who for reli-
gious reasons would not accept
employment requiring him to
work on Saturday should not be
denied unemployment insurance
In the field of religion and pub-
lic education, the Synagogue
Council filed briefs urging the
unconsitutionality of such prac-
tices as released time for religious
instruction during regular school
hours, whether the instruction
took place within the public
schools or elsewhere; devotional
Bible reading within the public
schools, and the recitation of
prayers, whether purportedly
sectarian or nonsectarian. as part
of the public school program. The
Council's position was upheld by
the Supreme Court in all these
cases except for one, in which the
court permitted released-time
religious education away from
public school premises and in-
volving no public school person-
in the mid-1960s, however, the
Synagogue Council split on the
question of aid to parochial
schools. While the Reform and
Conservative branches main-
tained and still maintain their
position against governmental
aid or involvement, the Orthodox
constituents have changed their
position and now consistently
join with the Catholic Church in
strongly urging such aid.
THE CHANGE of position by
the Orthodox is understandable.
Most Jewish parochial schools, or
day schools as they are called, are
under Orthodox auspices; they
have the most to gain from gov-
ernmental funds. While Orthodox
Jews have risen substantially on
the economic ladder, there are
still many Orthodox parents who
cannot meet the necessarily ever-
increasing tuition demands of the
schools. At the same time, reli-
gious schools, including day
, schools, have become major
| beneficiaries of allocations by
Jewish Welfare federations,
steadilv replacing Jewish hospi-
tals and homes for the aged, the
infirm or the orphaned-----
Nevertheless, demands on the
part of the Orothodox for govern-
mental aid to their schools have
increased both in extent and in-
tensity. Orthodox Jewish or-
ganizations have joined Catholics
in condemning Supreme Court
decisions that limit governmental
aid in financing the educational
operations of parochial schools to
subsidies for school busing and
loans of secular textbooks. They
testify strongly and consistently

Goldberg Attacks
Ethnic Suspicions
WASHINGTON proud of ones origin. "
(JTA) Arthur Goldberg,
former Supreme Court Jus-
tice and former U.S. Am-
bassador to the United Na-
tions, has strongly rejected
the idea that "ethnic
causes" are no longer in-
fluential in American poli-
Goldberg, who is now an
Ambassador-at-Large and
headed the U.S. delegation at the
recent Belgrade conference on the
Helsinki agreements, made his
remarks after being awarded the
B'nai B'rith President's Medal
by B'nai B'rith President David
M. Blumberg at a meeting of the
organization's administrative
committee here.
DEPARTING from his
prepared text on the Belgrade
conference. Goldberg said he had
been disturbed by "the concept
that we have reached a watershed
in American politics because
ethnic causes can no longer
prevail in the American vote."
While Goldberg did not
mention it directly, Sen. Mike
Gravel (D.. Alaska) said that
when the Senate supported
President Carter's Middle East
plane sale package it was a
"litmus test" that would prove to
be "the watershed year of Jewish
influence in the United States."
Goldberg said that "We are a
unique country, we say we are a
pluralistic country, and we draw
our sense as a nation from that
fact that we come from all parts
of the world. I always felt it made
one a better American to be very
"worried" about the revival of
the attack on ethnic interests,
Goldberg said. "I think this is
something we must address our-
selves to. We can put aside the
fight over the planes, but we can-
not put aside this concept ir our
country's acceptance for even a
single second as to apologizing
for being ethnic."
On the Helsinki agreement,
Goldberg characterized the
recent trial of Yuri Orlov, head of
the Soviet group monitoring the
USSR's compliance with the
human rights provisions of the
Helsinki agreement, as a "lynch-
He said he feared that the trial
of Jewish activist Anatoly Shar-
ansky would also lead to a guilty
sentence and a long prison
sentence. However, i have the
feeling that if they (Soviet
authorities) go ahead with it,
they will never get the SALT
agreement ratified by Congress
and I think they have been very
sober about it." he said.
ONE OF the guests at a panel
on human rights that followed
the Goldberg talk, Dr. Joyce
Starr, a Presidential special
assistant on human rights who
participated in the Belgrade con-
ference, told the Jewish Tele-
graphic Agency that the White
House is aware of the plight of
Jessica Katz, the seven-month-
old infant child of Soviet Jews
who have been refused per-
mission to leave the USSR for
vital medical treatment for her
Starr said the White House is
working on the case.

expressed concern over the

AMIT is presently visiting the

that he tended to agree with

DMC LEADER Yigael Yadin,
who is Deputy Premier, reacted
coldly to the voices of dissent. He
still maintains that the DMC can
have a modifying effect on policy
if it remains in the government.
He chided Rubinstein for ex-
pressing his views publicly before
taking them up in the party's
policy-making bodies.
Although the group within the
DMC that favors quitting the
government is .still in the
minority, Rubinstein, Amit and
Katz together pose a powerful
challenge to Yadin's leadership.

Lucius Clay, former American
Military Governor in Germany
and organizer of the 1948 Berlin
airlift, is dead.
The people of West Berlin owe
their freedom to his uncomprom-
ising attitude during that crisis.
The Federal Republic of Ger-
many too has much to thank him
for. He helped speed up her inte-
gration into the Western nations
after the terrible crimes of the
Hitler era.
LUCIUS CLAY will go down
in history as the man who won
one of the great battles of the
Cold War without the loss of a
single life. Three years after the
war, the Soviet Union blockaded
West Berlin and the people of the
city were faced with the choice of
starving or capitulating.
President Truman asked Gen.
Clay, the American Military
Governor in Germany, if he could
get supplies to Berlin by air.
Clay's answer was a simple
The Berlin airlift began. For
ten months, the two-and-a-half
million people of Berlin were sup-
plied with necessities by the air-
lift, one of the major technical
and organizational achievements
of modern times. Berlin was
saved from Soviet rule.
THIS WAS undoubtedly the
height of Clay's career. The son
of a Georgia senator, he started
his military career at the famous
West Point Academy. As a
young officer, he was fascinated
by technology. He became an ex-
pert on building airports, ports
and dams.
During World War II, he or-
ganized the invasion supply lines.

side military circles when he got

Twelve years later, after the Ber-

AS SPECIAL Commissioner
in West Berlin, his task was to
personify the United States'
readiness to defend the city. Hia
policy was clearly military with-

He demonstratively underlined
the right of America and Western
allies to free access by ordering
troop movements along the tran-

Clay also underlined the U.S.

attempted to limit the allies'

Clay ordered tanks to Checkpoint

kind of military pressure would
reduce the chances of a diploma-

By then the purpose of the

JDL Seeks Federal Judge's Impeachment
The Jewish Defense League
early last week announced a
move for the impeachment and
removal from the Federal Bench
of United States District Court
Judge Norman C. Roettger.
Sam Polur, a New York State
attorney living in Florida and a
member of the United States
Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals,
said the move is based on "the
insensitivity and callous indiffer-
ence he (Judge Roettger) dis-
played to the murdered six-mil-
lion Jews victims of Hitler
Germany's death camps and
to the American citizens who are
survivors and relatives of sur-
JDL BOARD member Irwin
Block, a Miami Beach resident,
argued that "Judge Roettger is
presiding at the demoralization
proceedings of Feodor Fedor-
enko, a Ukranian-born former
guard at the Treblinka con-
centration camp in Poland during
World War II. That Death Camp
guard is not being tried for the
burning alive, for the murders,
for the whippings, for the sadism
and unspeakable brutality
against Jews. Catholics and other
anti-Nazis of World War II.
"That man is being tried on
denaturalization charges brought
by the Department of Justice of
the United States for alleged per-
jurious statements and material
omissions in 1949 which enable
him to illegally obtain a United
States visa and subsequent
citizenship in 1970.
eral Judge called a press confer-
ence in his courtroom which
he first cleared of all witnesses
and observers to announce two
of the most callous and unfeeling
statements perhaps ever uttered
by a Federal Judge.''
Block quoted Judge Roettger
as declaring that "if at all pos-
sible," he would insist on obtain-
ing testimony from the "only
witnesses" who can corroborate
Fedorenko's story.
Terrorists Moving Back in Again
Interim Force in Lebanon when Israeli forces invaded south
(UNIFIL) by avoiding the Lebanon last March,

Substantial numbers of well
armed terrorists infiltrated south
Lebanon and hid out pending the
final withdrawal of Israeli forces
But some of them already had
set up artillery positions in the
eastern sector of south Lebanon
known as Fatah land. The
presence of about 150 terrorists
in the area between the Litani
River and the present Israeli lines
was confirmed.
THEY LAY low in orchards
and groves assisted by leftist ele-
ments of the local population.
The terrorists apparently evaded
patrols of the United Nations

darkness. They have brought in
arms the same way, the reports
Israel, which held a six-mile-
deep security belt along the
Lebanese border, has promised
the UN that all of its forces would
be out of Lebanon by June 13.
Security circles here are con-
vinced that once Israeli troops
are gone, the situation in south
Lebanon will change.
The terrorists are expected to
re-enter villages and townships
and begin to rebuild their infras-
tructure, including training
centers, vehicle pools and arms
caches which were destroyed
ARMS IN large quantities are
reported to be reaching the ter-
rorists from Libya and Europe
via the port of Tyre which they
still hold. Supplies are also said
to be coming in from Cyprus.
Concentrations of terrorists re-
ported in the Beaufort area are
said to include hundreds of Iraqi
soldiers disguised as members of
the Arab Liberation Front.
The terrorists' movements
have aroused alarm in Christian
villages in south Lebanon. The
Israeli army corps of engineers
has built a network of roads to
enable Christian forces to move
between their various enclaves.
Those alleged witnesses
admittedly are in the Soviet
Union and not available for
terrifying," said Block. "But. the
Judge added, those alleged 'wit-
nesses' were fellow guards at
Treblinka Concentration Camp
with Fedorenko."
"WHAT, in the name of inno-
cent Jewish blood could
testimony from guards at Treb-
linko provide to save' Fedorenko
from deportation for perjury
upon being admitted to the
United States?" Block and at-
torney Polur demanded to know.
Block and Polur also quoted
Roettger as declaring that it
might take three or four years to
get the testimony of these wit-
nesses "somewhere in Russia."
"What is most shocking is this
unalterable fact:
"Assume everything the for-
mer guards at Treblinka said

that genealogy itself has its

De.ilogical as well.
IW'hile it is quite easy to recog-
uenealogical interest in
rish tradition, the question
M Can a present-day Jew
|ve any success in tracing his or
family tree?
THE ANSWER is a definite
les and the "myth" that all
wish records from Europe were
JRlroyed is just that a mis-
nception. There ore records,
fcre are books, and there are
fny other sources which can
lp the average family trace
keif back through the
ptetore you are ready to consult
libraries, archives, and record
Iteri which can help you in
ur research, you must begin
lur family tree at home. There is
no substitute for interviewing
family members and beginning to
plot a family tree simply be
drawing from the memories of
your relatives especially the
older ones.
In fact, if you successfully "dig
out" your long lost cousins and
great aunts, you will be surprised
at how large your family tree can
be. It is not uncommon for a
family tree to stretch back five
and six generations simply on the
basis of memory. It is important
to remember, as well, that a
family tree is not just a
genealogy which goes back in
YOU SHOULD record the
names and dates of living cousins
also. Learning about ancestors
who have been long gone is
fascinating, but it is often even
more rewarding to see how wide
your family is, how "inter-
national" it is, and how many
interesting people you are related
After you have contacted as
many relatives as possible,
asking them for rames, dates,
places, occupations, and family
stories, you are then ready to
search the records.
Most of us have a tendency to
think that our own families could
never appear in books or records
but this i? simply not true. Let
us say. for example, that your
great grandparents came to the
United States in 1848 (which is
quite probable if they came from
Germany, since this was the
height of German-Jewish im-
IF THIS is so. then there is
little doubt that your family
would appear in the 1850, 1860,
1870, 1880 and 1900 Federal
census records (the 1890 records
were destroyed in a fire). Each of
those census records would add
names, dates and other informa-
tion to your family tree.
All of the U.S. Census records,
from .1900 on back, are open to
the public, so if any part of your
family came to America before
that year, you, would be able to
find them there.
Another research variant is the
Naturalization record. Most of
our "immigrant ancestors" (our
families' first member to arrive in
this country I became citizens.
OFTEN THE citizenship
records, or more specifically the
applications for citizenship
(which are available to the public)
contain important famUy history
information, like the ancestors
native town and the name of the
boat which brought them to
America. With the name of the
boat you can obtain the steam-
ship passenger lists from the
National Archives.
There are countless other
sources in the U.S. alone, such as
birth, death and marriage
records. Early "city directories."
which look like, but pre-date tele-
phone books, may list your
Non-American Jewish records
are more difficult, but still
possible, to locate. If your family
was from Eastern Europe, you
should familiarize yourself with
"Memorial Books," also known
as "Yizkor Books." Each of the
more than one hundred volumes
is devoted to a different Eastern
European town, and often even
the tiniest towns are represented.
IF YOU can locate a Memorial
Book about your family's town, it
it quite pc isible that you will find
your sought-for references. An
examination of the book would
still be worthwhile even if your
family is not mentioned, since it
will provide you with photo-
graphs and other historical
material which will put your
research into historical context.
Interestingly, the Mormon
Church in Salt Lake City has a
great number of Jewish records
from around the world.
Genealogy is part of the Mormon
religion, and because of this, they
have set out to microfilm the
world's records. At the present
time, the Mormons have a
collection of Jewish birth, death
and marriage records repre-
senting 300 Polish towns, 300
German towns, and 300 Hun-
garian towns.
A DEEPLY disturbing but
vitally important aspect of
Jewish genealogy is Holocaust
research. While the number
6.000,000 is unfathomable,
learning about family members
who were killed by the Nazis
makes the Event all the more
personal. Since there are no
graves for the victims, your
family tree can become their
personal memorial.
The International Tracing Ser-
vice, under the direction of the
International Red Cross, is an
agency which has attempted to
collect all records relating to the
Holocaust. By writing to them,
you might be able to learn more
about the Holocaust victims in
your family.
Sources for researching Jewish
genealogy are vast. Some Jewish
families have been able to trace
back ten to fifteen generations
while others have linked up with
families from the 15th century.

Marx in the Manifesto. Still, one
can not deny Solzhenitayn's view
that "Destructive and irrespon-
sible freedom has been granted
boundless space (in the west).
Society appears to have little
defense against the abyss of
human decadence" or that "Life
organized legalistically has thus
shown its inability to defend
itself against the corrosion of
Huysmans this may be. Marx
it may also be. But these men had
some truths in their hearts that
were and still are self-evident,
and to say "nay" to these truths
would be to imitate Solzhen-
itsyn's own preconditioned view
of us against which he has,
apparently, been struggling so
valiantly since his arrival here.
IT IS NOT that Solzhenitsyn
prefers to see us the way he does
as moral equivalents of his
bankrupt forebears. Rather, it is
that he is so keenly disappointed
that he can not see us differently
that in fact there are vestiges
of truth in his preconditioning
that tortures him so.
That is why. in his incisive
attack on our obsession with
material wealth and our con-
sumerism mania, he could
perceive so quickly our failure to
understand self-sacrifice. In this
context, he talked about the
pragmatic American view of
legality: "One almost never sees
voluntary self-restraint. Every-
body operates at the extreme
limit of those legal frames."
Hence. "An oil company is
legally blameless when it pur-
chases an invention of a new type
of energy in order to prevent its
use. A food product manufac-
turer is legally blameless when he
poisons his produce to make it
last longer: after all, people are
free not to buy it."
amounts to a terrible indictment
that we are willing to sacrifice
human welfare for profit and self-
indulgence or, as is more fre-
quently the case, to be victimized
by the profiteer and the self-
indulgent because they make'us
"happier" the Phillips or
Exxon commercial tells us, not
what they are doing in the way of
exploiting the natural environ-
ment and human resources for
personal gain, but that they are
doing it all just for little old us.
Taken on its own terms, this
sounds like Solzhenitsyn four
years ago. But, at Harvard, he
added, "I have spent all my life
under a Communist regime, and I

without any objective legal scale

society with no other scale but
the legal one is not quite worthy

only the oil companies but, say.
some civil libertarians supporting
the Nazi right to march in Skokie
might well take to heart.
This more accurate view of the
west not only hit closer to where
we live; it se* the stage for his
greatest rage against us our
betrayal of Vietnam.
In Solzhenitsyn's view. "The
American intelligentsia lost its
nerve, and as a consequence
thereof danger has come much
closer to the United States .
Your shortsighted politicians
who signed the hasty Vietnam
capitulation seemingly gave
America a carefree breathing
pause: however, a hundredfold

WHO CAN disagree, except
the gutless intellectuals them-
selves? For instance, the years-
long Kissinger Le Due Tho
charade in Paris establishing two
Vietnams in perpetuity brought
the destruction of freedom in
Southeast Asia in 30 days. One
would be hard put not to believe
that Kissinger failed to foresee it.
Hence, not only do a hundred-
fold Vietnams now loom over us.
but we have wound up in the
tasteless role of being the pro-
genitors of "the betrayal of Far
Eastern nations, in a genocide
and in the suffering today im-
posed on 30 million people there."
At Harvard, in the end, Sol-
zhenitsyn could therefore equate
us with his Russian bete noir a
moral collapse in each: "In the
East, it (the spiritual life) is
destroyed by the dealings and
machinations of the ruling party.
In the West, commercial in-
terests tend to suffocate it .
The split in the world is less
terrible than the similarity of the
disease plaguing its main sec-
Our policies, argued Sol-
zhenitsyn at Harvard, are based
on "weakness and cowardice.
And decline in courage is iron-
ically emphasized by occasional
explosions of anger" mainly
"when dealing with weak govern
ments and weak countries, not
supported by anyone, or witn
currents which can not offer any
PUT THESE two things
together, the American role in
Cambodian genocide and our
greedy intimidation of the weak,
and then read Israel although
nowhere here do I suggest that
this is what Solzenitsyn had in
Still, the lesson is clear. In Sol-
zhenitsyn's demand for western
moral commitment, he also called
for the west's return to political
and spiritual preeminence
unhampered by financial enter-
prise or personal decadence.
Israel is the latest example of
our failure to do either of these
things, to act morally in the
Middle East or in Southeast
Asia, because it is not in our dip-
lomatic best interest to do so.
Since diplomacy, as we practice
it. has nothing to do with
morality, with spiritual con-
siderations of any persuasion, is
not Solzhenitsyn right in recog-
nizing the existence of a new
Bruderschaft between Washing-
ton and Moscow?
IS HE NOT right in judging us
that we can not rebel against our
decadent hedonism to shake off
the Bruderschaft to spurn the
Washington-Moscow moral
equivalency that plagues him so?
And that ought to plague us. too?
Perhaps. at Harvard.
Solzhenitsyn sounded too much
tike the tormented Alyosha in
Dostoievsky's Brothers Kara-
mazoc who attempts to reconcile
the irreconcilable, the worldly
with the divine. Still, at Harvard
he was a breath of fresh air in a
western world of growing self-
interest and stagnation.
