New Holocaust Victim List
Reignites Controversy
Recent political developments
in Eastern Europe have drawn
back the iron curtain of
secrecy that for 40 vears con-
cealed knowledge of Nazi con-
centration camps.
One result has been that
newly available documents
from the Soviet Union listing
thousands of names of victims
f the Holocaust has reignited
historical controversy over
n accurate estimate of the
>tal number of Jews killed in
e Holocaust.
The West German Red Cross
)mpleted a month-long pro-
ct of putting on microfilm 46
kound volumes from Aus-
iwitz called "Sterbebuch," or
"death books," which contain
detailed data of about 70,000
Prisoners who perished in the
olish death camp.
A full page in the death
books was devoted to each
victim listed, complete with an
SS doctor's certification of the
cause of death and the exact
hour and minute of expiration.
The volumes, acquired when
the Soviet Union liberated
Auschwitz on Jan. 27, 1945,
had been kept in a central
Soviet archive in Moscow for
40 years, out of the public eye.
Until recent months, the
Soviets had refused to make
available the Nazi books,
which could have been helpful

Simcha Dinitz, chairman of the Jewish Agency
and World Zionist Organization Executives, said
guessing games are not helpful. "Efforts should be
made to find alternative ways for the Soviet Jews
to leave the USSR," he said.
Immediate reaction of one
high-ranking Jewish Agency
official was that the new esti-
mate could "strengthen the
Arab states' pressure on the
Soviet Union to curtail immi-
The official observed, how-
ever, that "there is no way of
knowing how realistic it is."
Simcha Dinitz, chairman of
the Jewish Agency and World
Zionist Organization Execu-
tives, said guessing games are
not helpful. "Efforts should be
made to find alternative ways
for the Soviet Jews to leave
the USSR," he said.
Soviet authorities so far
have refused to approve direct
flights between Moscow and
Tel Aviv. As a result, many
emigrants have to wait a year
or longer for flights by exist-
ing air services.
Nevertheless, a huge num-
ber seem to be getting out. Of
the 6,170 immigrants who
arrived in Israel in January,
4,815 were from the Soviet
Union, according to figures
released Wednesday by the
Absorption Ministry.
Government sources said the
high estimate of arrivals this
year is conditional on finding
new exit routes for Soviet
Jews. The sources suggested
Prague, Warsaw and even
Helsinki as transit points.
Another solution would be to
establish an ocean passenger
service to Israel from the
Soviet Black Sea port of
The Soviets have been will-
ing to transport the emigrants'
heavy baggage and household
effects by container ship to
Israel, but have repeatedly
refused to establish an ocean
liner service for passengers.
Israeli officials seem to be as
concerned by the leak of the
high estimate as by the prob-
lems that could arise if it mat-
erializes. Gordon told repor-
ters Tuesday that the govern-
ment official who made the
prediction should not have
publicized the figure.
"It will only cause prob-
lems," mainly concern over
finding jobs for so many new-

Censorship Follows
Prediction On Report
Israel's decision to censor
news stories related to Soviet
aliyah has angered journalists
and put government officials
on the defensive.
A flood of questions was
raised after an Israel Defense
Force spokesman announced
that stories filed by local and
foreign news organizations
about Jewish immigration
from the Soviet Union would
have to be submitted to the
military censor before publica-
Reporters are demanding to
know why censorship is being
imposed now, after weeks of
free reporting of the subject.
Charges have been leveled
and flashed around the world
that Israel is trying to cover up
the settlement of Soviet Jews
in the West Bank and Gaza
Government officials insist
the censorship is a security
measure to protect the immi-
grants. They cite the Arab
campaign to disrupt the move-
ment and recent threats by the
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
Yossi Olmert, director of the
Government Press Office, and
Prime Minister Yitzhak Sha-
mir's media spokesman, Avi
Pazner, stressed that the cen-
sorship applies only to the
number of immigrants and the
routes they are traveling to
On the other hand, the news
media are free to print or
broadcast stories about the
reception the newcomers are
getting when they arrive and
how they are adjusting to life
in Israel, the officials said.
Olmert explained to the Jew-
ish Telegraphic Agency that
the decision to impose secrecy
on the routes and on numbers
of immigrants was based on
an ordinance dating back to
Aug. 8, 1968. It permits the
censorship of information on
aliyah from certain sensitive
areas, such as Iran and Syria.
"This was the case when the
Ethiopians came on Operation
Moses," Olmert said, adding,
"We all remember how that
information was released to
the press prematurely and
Operation Moses is the name
given to a series of clandestine
airlifts in 1984 and 1985 that
brought Ethiopian Jews to
Israel by way of Sudan. The

had cast a blind eye on the
Xration, forced its closure

the news media.

to leave the Soviet Union still
face difficulties. As a result of
Arab threats against aliyah, it
was decided to "lower the pro-
file" by limiting public discus-
sion "of some aspects of the

Pitfalls And Dangers, Again
The Bush Administration did not rush to
embrace the proposal by Senator Bob Dole
to cut aid to Israel.
Instead, it has advocated expanding the
number of countries which will receive
reduced amounts of foreign aid beyond
Dole's original list.
While it is proper to suggest increased
assistance to nations in Central America
and Eastern Europe in the wake of surpris-
ing gains by democratic forms of govern-
ment, it is folly to do so at the expense of
Israel and other well-established allies.
Certainly the new exodus of Soviet Jews
to the Jewish State justifies not the same,
but increased aid, particularly at a time
when the United States has had to limit the
immigration of fleeing citizens of the
Secretary of State Baker's pronounce-
ment that a cut in aid is more palatable
when it is across-the-board rather than
limited to a few allies must be met with
skepticism and strident opposition.
The voice of America was heard in its
cry, "Let My People Go."
Now, it cannot be silent when the Krem-
lin responds with an almost open door.
Bonds Will Fund
Israeli leaders abandoned
party politics to present one
message to the 40th anniver-
sary conference of the interna-
tional State of Israel Bonds
Organization at its various ses-
sions here during the past
The message was that Israel
needs the Diaspora's help in
creating jobs and housing for
Soviet Jews and other immi-
grants, who are arriving in
greater numbers than at any
time since the earliest years of
The price tag was put at
more than $1 billion for every
100,000 olim.
The conference, which
opened in France and closed
here this week, was assured by
Finance Minister Shimon
Peres that all of the money
mobilized by the Bonds Organ-
ization will be devoted to the
absorption of immigrants.
It will be used to build the
infrastructure, to pave the
roads, to construct power sta-
tions and houses, "and to
make the exodus from Russia
and its implementation in
Israel as agreeable, as quick
and as promising as we can,"
Peres said.
Shimon Peres
Prime Minister Yitzhak Sha-
mir, who delivered the princi-
pal address at a dinner in the
Knesset building, said that on
the basis of the present rate of
arrivals, "we estimate that we
will have to build about 35,000
housing units, 300 new class-
rooms in our schools and big-
ger ulpan facilities for thou-
sands of adult students."
"The people of Israel will
cover the major share of the
costs," Shamir said. "But we
are relying on world Jewry to
make extraordinary efforts to
help this great national enter-
prise," he added.

issue of German reunification
has quite rightly emerged as a
central concern in interna-
tional relations, particularly so
for Jewish foreign policy.
Despite all the analysis and
punditry, there seems to be a
strange passing in the night
between some German leaders
and their European neighbors,
including the Jewish people.
There are two Germanies
the Germany of history and
the Germany of today. In much
of the anxious public discus-
sion over reunification, Ger-

Germany that Chancellor Kohl
concentrates on in the current
The Germany of history pro-
duced the horrors of World
War I and the Nazi Holocaust
of World War II. But to stu-
dents of German history, the
anxieties are reinforced by the
awareness of the 1,000-year-
old dominance of the Holy
Roman Empire, which was led
by German emperors who
sought to realize the fantasy of
a "world theocratic empire."
In his "Basic History of
Modern Germany," Professor
Louis Snyder wrote, "Ger-

cally European nation The
Western ideals of liberty,
equality and fraternity did not
take firm root in German soil;
instead, the option of German
rulers was for Eastern author-

There is a double task of
reciprocal honesty that the
reunification movement
requires before it becomes an
ambiguous fact of life. German
leaders need to confront once
again that long and frighten-
ing history and assure that the
constitutional restraints are
institutionalized so that there
will be no possibilities of rever-
sion to those destructive pat-
terns of the past.
While insisting on such
assurances, European nations
and world Jewish leaders
need honestly to acknowledge
that the Germany of 1990 is
not the Germany of 1945, and
help validate the democratic
Germany as the model for a
reunified Germany. And that

the United States to be in the
forefront of pressing these
concerns on Germany. World

in determining the fates and
identities of Auschwitz victims
in addition to determining a
more accurate death-toll fig-
ure for the Nazi genocide.
Certain documents, how-
ever, were submitted as evi-
dence during the Nuremberg
Trials in 1945, and a number of
official government offices
have had access to the Aus-
chwitz books.
The Office of Special Investi-
gations, for example, has had
access to the Auschwitz
records for 10 years. "We
have used such materials in
our prosecutions," an OSI
source said, adding, "we're
thrilled that these records are
available to scholars now."
But the availability of the
records for scholarly appraisal
has reopened the long-
standing controversy among
Holocaust historians over the
six million figure long
accepted as the estimated
number of Jews killed during
the Holocaust.
"I think the number (of Jews
killed) must be higher than sue
million," Dr. Shmuel Kra-
kovski, Yad Vashem's chief
archivist, is quoted as saying
in the New York Post. In ligh'
of the new information mad<
available by the Auschwitz
death books, he estimated that
the number of Holocaust vic-
tims could rise by 500,000.
But according to Raoul Hil-
berg, John G. McCullough Pro-
fessor of Political Science at
the University of Vermont and
a preeminent historian of the
Holocaust, such estimates are
"ludicrous. Krakovski doesn't
know what he's talking about.
These books have zero implica-
tions for calculating the num-
ber" of Jewish victims, he

American Labor Support Continues Long Tradition
Last November, delegates to
the biennial convention of the
AFL-CIO endorsed a strongly
worded resolution in support
of the State of Israel. The
resolution noted that "the
AFL-CIO has a strong bond
with Israel, a nation built by
the trade union movement
and that "in a sea of violence,
Israel continues to extend
basic democratic rights to all
citizens, Arabs and Jews alike.
It remains a thriving democ-
racy in which the basic free-
doms of association, speech,
press, and religion are
respected." The resolution
went on to deplore the violence
of the intifada and the "tra-
gedy of the Palestinians of the
West Bank and Gaza strip and
their inability in the face of
PLO intimidations to develop
leaders willing and able to
negotiate with Israel."
The resolution continued a
long tradition of support for
the State of Israel by the
American labor movement.
Indeed, since 1917, when the
American Federation of Labor
adopted a resolution endorsing
"the legitimate claims of the
Jewish people for the estab-
lishment of a homeland in
Palestine," perhaps no institu-
tion in American society out-
side of the Jewish community
has provided as much political,
financial, and moral support to
the Jewish State as the Ameri-
can labor movement.
The AFL-CIO has remained
steadfast in its support of
Israel for a variety of reasons.
One answer lies in the import-
ant role that fraternal links
between American and Israeli
unions play in engendering
pro-Israel sentiments within
first established contact with

Olmert rejected charges that
the threats were triggered by
Shamir's widely reported
remarks that large-scale immi-
f ration requires a "big
Shamir later amended him-
self, saying he meant only a
"strong Israel."
Olmert observed that Arab
opposition to aliyah goes back
long before the controversy
over what Shamir said.
But Yossi Sarid, chairman of
Knesset Foreign Affairs and
Defense Committee's subcom-
mittee on censorship, believes
the new regulation will do
more harm than good.
It can be construed by those
critical of Israel as a move to
cover up what Israel wants to
hide, such as reports that the
government has planned a
large-scale settlement of new-
comers in the administered
territories, said Sarid, a mem-
ber of the left- wing Citizens
Rights Movement.
Absorption Minister Yitzhak
Peretz personally assured
Secretary of State James
Baker in Washington that
Israel does not have such a
the Histadrut in 1928, and ties
between American and Israeli
labor have been unbroken ever
since. These types of long and
close institutional ties to other
democratic trade unions are
highly valued by the American
labor movement, and help to
place Israel in the company of
other industrial democracies
with great trade union move-
ments, such as England, West
Germany, or Australia.
The most fundamental basis
of AFL-CIO support, however,
is the labor federation's strong
commitment to industrial and
political democracy. A bedrock
belief in the indispensability of
democratic societies to trade
unionism guides and animates
the foreign policy of the AFL-
CIO. Historical experience
with regimes ranging in orien-
tation from fascism to com-
munism has convinced trade
union leaders that in the long
run, trade unions cannot exist
without freedom of association
and other democratic guaran-
The AFL-CIO has
remained steadfast in its
support of Israel. ..
Given this passionate com-
mitment to democracy, AFL-
CIO support for Israel is not
surprising. Israel, of course, is
the only democratic country in
the Middle East, and the only
country in the Middle East
with a free trade union move-
ment. Its well-developed, free
labor movement is widely
admired within American
trade union circles. This
admiration stems from the
crucial role played by the His-
tadrut in nation-building and
the fact that the founding lead-
ers of the Jewish State were
products of the labor move-
ment. American unions also
see Israel as something of a
model of social democracy,
with 85% of the population
organized into unions and an
extensive social welfare sys-
tem that includes a national
health and benefit program
administered by Histadrut. In
short, American labor has long
been convinced that by sup-
porting Israel, it is supporting
the most fundamental princi-
ples of free trade unionism.
We live in a time when dem-
ocratic movements are gaining
ground around the world;
sadly, this democratic revolu-
tion has failed to reach the
Middle East. Until that time,
supporting democracy in the
Middle East means supporting
the only democratic state in
the Middle East. And that
State is Israel.

Commission Seeks To Improve Jewish Education
Washington Jewxth Week
Morton Mandel is of that gen-
eration of North American
Jews who achieved the kind of
material and social success
their parents and grandpar-
ents only dreamed about.
But, at the peak of his for-
tune and power, Mandel
admits to a feeling of anxiety
that he thinks is shared by his
"colleagues in Jewish com-
munal activism."
"There is a great concern on
our part as to whether our
grandchildren will grow up to
be positively identified with ..
. Jewish life," said Mandel,
chairman of the board of the
Premier Industrial Corpora-
tion in Cleveland.
"I don't want us to have
lasted these years and find
great success in being
accepted in America, and then
have the Jewish community
decrease in size and contribu-
tion," he said.
Mandel's concerns have led
to what is being called the
most important development
in Jewish education in the past
10 years.
Working through his Mandel
Associated Foundations and
major North American Jewish
education organizations, Man-
del has assembled a 47-
member commission of philan-
thropists and educators with
hopes of revolutionizing the
way North American Jews
regard Jewish education.
This June, when the commis-
sion announces the results of
close to two years of work,
observers are not expecting
surprising insights or radical
ideas for change.
The Mandel Commission has
already announced that it is
seeking ways to "professional-
ize" Jewish educators and to
make education a higher prior-
ity among Jewish communal
But one aspect of the com-
mission makes it significant:
with a membership that
includes twice as many philan-
thropists and foundation rep-
resentatives as educators, the
commission may have the
power and money to imple-
ment its proposals.
"While money doesn't solve
all problems, one of the things
American Jewry needs is an
independent, multi-million dol-
lar foundation to be able to
leverage money to respond to
critical needs in Jewish educa-
tion," said Dr. Alvin Schiff,
executive vice president of the
Board of Jewish Education of
Greater New York and a mem-
ber of the commission.
"Matching the proposals
with the availability of bucks is
challenge number one."
The North American Jewish
community already spends
some $1 billion on Jewish edu-
cation, according to Schiff s
estimates. That figure includes
the more than $500 million
spent in tuition to Jewish day
schools, $175 million in Sunday
schools and other "supplemen-
tary" programs, and millions
more in Jewish campaign,
adult education, community
center programs and campus

Waiver Linked
Sentiment is building on Capi-
tol Hill to deny a waiver of
Jackson-Vanik Amendment
trade sanctions against the
Soviet Union unless it insti-
tutes direct flights between
Moscow and Israel.
Sen. Arlen Specter (R-Pa.)
has introduced a aense-of-the-
Senate resolution stating that
Congress should not approve a
waiver of the trade sanctions
until the direct flights begin.
Resolution also states that
the Bush administration
should not complete trade
negotiations with the Soviet
Union until it implements an
agreement on the direct flights
that was signed in December
by the Soviet carrier Aeroflot
and El Al Israel Airlines.
Rep. Tom Lantos (D-Calif.),
meanwhile, is circulating a let-
ter to his colleagues in the
House of Representatives that
says members of Congress are
"appalled and dismayed" that
the Soviets have not imple-
mented the accord signed by
Aeroflot and El Al.
Soviet rejection of recent
appeals on the matter by Pres-
ident Bush and Secretary of
State James Baker represent a
"serious blow to our relation-
ship," the letter states.
Under the Jackson-Vanik
Amendment, the Soviet Union
has been denied most-favored-
nation trade privileges from
the United States since 1975.
The amendment says the sanc-
tions can be waived for a trial
period if the Soviet Union
allows a sustained high level of
Many members of Congress,
backed by Soviet Jewry
groups, feel the Soviets have
now met that test. But a

approval and could not take

The World Zionist Organization has announced its plans
for KESHER'90, the second annual reunion-mission for
Israel program alumni, to be held in Jerusalem, from June
6th through June 14th.
During these eight days, program participants will have
the opportunity to meet with leading Israeli dignitaries, to
explore professional and educational options in Israel, to
enjoy extensive tours of the country, to socialize with
Israeli peers and professional counterparts, and to exam-
ine, in-depth, important Israel-related issues.
Like its predecessor, KESHER '89, KESHER '90 has

circulated among Israel program alumni in 1987. Accord-
ing to the WZO's survey results, 99% of those Americans
who have participated in programs in Israel claim to have
had an overwhelmingly positive experience and wish to
visit the country again. KESHER '90 will provide up to
1000 of these program "returnees" with the opportunity to
do so.
As a special feature, KESHER '90 participants may
choose to remain in Israel for up to three months, at no
additional charge, either independently, as members of a
special program for Zionist youth movement alumni, or as
participants in one of Israel's many exciting summer
programs. (Those interested can contact the Kesher office,

Home Religious Routines
Key To Jewish Identity
Religious routines in the home
are the key to creating Jewish
identity in a child, according to
Dr. Uzi Ben-Ami, a clinical
social psychologist.
"These memories stay in a
child's mind as symbols of
being Jewish," Ben-Ami, of
the Jewish Social Service
Agency in Rockville, Md., said
at a B'nai B'rith Women panel
discussion on effective parent-
Ben-Ami said children
become accustomed to rou-
tines and grow up feeling that
Jewish rituals are an integral
part of their lives. He cited
research showing memories of
religious rituals as the critical
factor which brings uninvolved
Jews back to the fold.
"They remember a mother
or grandmother lighting the
candles on Friday night," he
said, recommending that fami-
lies have a ritual of weekly
meetings to discuss the past
week's activities or study por-
tions of the Torah.
The discussion was part of
B'nai B'rith Women's National
Training Institute, a five-day
seminar developed for leaders
to design and implement high-
impact family programs in
their communities.

U.S. Soviet Jewry
Group Attacks
The National Conference on
Soviet Jewry, which has taken
a cautious approach to reports
of rising anti-Semitism in the
Soviet Union, is now urging
the Soviet government to
ensure the safety of the third
largest Jewish community in
the world.
"All we are asking the
Soviet Union is to enforce
their constitution and their
laws to ensure the Jewish pop-
ulation is not subject to physi-
cal harm," Martin Wenick, the
conference's executive direc-
tor, said in a telephone inter-
The conference's constituent
organizations decided at a
meeting in Washington to
heighten its profile on the
issue, raising the matter pub-
licly with people inside and
outside the U.S. government.
The group issued a state-
ment saving that the meeting
was held "to voice our concern
over the rising tide of anti-
Semitism in the Soviet Union,
whose pernicious manifesta-
tion we perceive as a threat to
the physical and emotional
well-being of that nation's
Jewish population of more
than 1.5 million.
"Mindful of recent events in
the Soviet Union, in which the
Jewish community has been
threatened by certain national-
ist groups, we urge the Soviet
authorities to take action.
News Briefs
5 Dallas Skinheads Convicted
DALLAS (JTA) Five members of a white supremacist
group were convicted of firearms violations and conspiracy
to violate the civil rights of blacks, Jews and Hispanics.
Charges stem from anti-Semitic and anti-minority inci-
dents committed in 1988, in which several religious
institutions were vandalized and several people were
beaten up by Skinheads.
Honorary Citizenship for Pollard Denied
TEL AVTV (JTA) The Israeli government has rejected
a request by an ad hoc coalition of Knesset factions to grant
honorary Israeli citizenship to convicted spy Jonathan
Pollard. Pollard, an American Jew, is serving a life
sentence in a U.S. federal prison for spying for Israel.
Hadassah Backs Women At The Wall
NEW YORK The national board of Hadassah
approved a statement urging the Israeli government to
protect the rights of women to conduct religious ceremo-

NEW YORK (JTA) The Council of Jewish Federations
has embarked on a program together with United Way
International to teach Israelis how to run a United

Demjanjuk Appeal Will Be Heard
JERUSALEM (JTA) The High Court of Justice has
agreed to consider new evidence which might support the
alibi of convicted war criminal John Demjanjuk, who was
sentenced to hang two years ago. It is scheduled to hear his
appeal on May 14.
Italian Hate Crimes Law Activated
ROME (JTA) An anti-Semitic banner displayed at a

preventing racism and violence at soccer games, and
Italian law- enforcement authorities believe it is just the

"We can overcome the hous-

anger waxed hot, and he cast the tables out of his hands"
(Exod. St. 19).
KI TISSA The children of Israel were counted and each man
over 20 years of age contributed half a shekel "as ransom "
Bezalel son of Uri, and Oholiab, son of Ahisamach, were
appointed to head the artisans who made the Tabernacle and its
vessels. The Israelites were warned not to violate the Sabbath
God gaves Moses two tablets of stone containing the Ten
Commandments, written "with the finger of God." However to
the impatient Israelis, Moses seemed to be tarrying too lone on
the mountain They made a golden calf, which Moses found them
worshipping. In his fury, he broke the two tablets of the Law The
idolaters were killed by the members of the loyal tribe of Levi
Moses prayed successfully to God to spare the children of Israei
despite their backsliding. He ascended mount Sinai again and
there received a new set of stone tablets. When he descended

back upon his face, until he went in to speak with Him" (Exodus
