As Kristallnacht Anniversary Approaches...
It is unlikely that the two
teenagers who brought deep
anguish to those connected
with the Orthodox Congrega-
tion in Brooklyn by destroying
Torah scrolls three days before
Yom Kippur ever heard of
How the youths will be dealt
with is up to the American
system of justice. Beyond that,
the vandals and members of
their family need instruction
about Kristallnacht, especially
on or near Nov. 9, the 50th
anniversary of Nazi synagogue
window smashing in Germany
and Austria.
Behold the toll of that infa-
mous catastrophe. Behold how
history recorded it and how
the great Martin Buber wept
over it and penned his message
of lamentation.
Note the dishonor roll of
Nazi Kristallnacht pillage and
post-Kristallnacht anti-Jewish
deprivation: 36 Jews killed, 36
severely injured; 30,000 Jews
arrested and sent to Buchen-
wald, Sachsenhausen, or
Dachau; 7,500 homes and busi-
ness vandalized or set on fire;
191 synagogues set ablaze or
damaged in other ways, and
another 76 destroyed.
Hitler and his willing,
brown-shirted, jack-booted
troops were acting out a sched-
ule of barbaric intensity drawn
up eight months prior to Kris-
Hitler had laid the groun-
dwork by decreeing earlier in
1938 that all Jewish-owned
property in and out of Ger-
many be registered.
Fines of one billion marks
were imposed, all insurance
claims confiscated, and the
Aryanization of the Reich's

Two days before Kristall-
nacht, Herschel Grynszpan,
son of Polish Jews but living in
France, was so shaken and
outraged by Nazi deportation
of his parents that he assassi-

secretary of the Germany
Report; Distorted,
Not Devastating
beleagured American Israel
Public Affairs Committee
emerged bruised but standing
after its bout with CBS-TV's
"60 Minutes."
AIPAC said in a statement
that Mike Wallace's report on
the powerful pro-Israel lobby-
ing group attempted to depict
its influence as "something
negative or sinister."
But while agreeing with
AIPAC that the program
lacked balance, leaders of
American Jewish organiza-
tions for the most part felt its
charges were tame, compared
to what had been feared in the
weeks prior to the broadcast.
Those had been trying weeks
for AIPAC, which is the most
powerful voice in Washington
on behalf of Israel and one of
the most influential of all
American lobbying groups.
AIPAC attempted to deflect
ahead of time Wallace's
charges that it "sets the line"
for some 80 pro-Israel political
action committees, in violation
of federal laws governing
But then just last week, the
group was placed on the defen-
sive after three major Jewish
agencies were reported to
have criticized AIPAC for act-
ing "out of step with the con-
sensus of the organized Jewish
community" on at least three
recent issues related to Israel.
The Conference of Presi-
dents of Major American Jew-
ish Organizations held an
emergency meeting to discuss
the fallout of the "60 Minutes"
Embassy in Paris.
This event played into the
hands of Hitler's closest part-
ners-in-crime, who had
gathered in Munich for the
annual celebration of the 1923
beer hall putsch.
Quickly, the shattering of
synagogue glass ensued.
In March 1939, as Lucy Dav-
idowicz notes in "The War
Against The Jews," Martin
Buber, saddened by the Kris-
tallnacht savagery, wrote
these poignant lines:
I testify: it was the
most extraordinary and
meaningful circum-
stance. For the symbiosis
of German and Jewish
existence, as I experi-
enced it in the four
decades that I spent in
Germany, was the first
and the only one since the
Spanish Era to receive
the highest confirmation
that history can bestow
confirmation through
creativity But this
symbiosis is at an end
and it is not likely to

ruin to sacred and historic
Jewish sanctuaries in Ger-
many and Austria 50 years ago

bers of the umbrella organiza-
tion agreed that the report
was "filled with distortions,
innuendoes and inaccuracies,"
was the second in a week
called to discuss criticism of
The central theme of Wal-
lace's report was that AIPAC
has exerted undue influence to
ensure that Israel receives $3
billion in U.S. foreign aid, with
little or no congressional
debate. The report appeared to
charge that AIPAC nas engin-
eered the defeat of U.S. senat-
ors and representatives
because of their poor voting

Chinese Delegation
Looking, Not Talking
nese trade delegation visiting
Israel for the first time has
proven to be extremely media
The seven-member group
evaded reporters after landing
at Ben-Gurion Airport.
They then disappeared from
Sheba government hospital in
Tel Hashomer the next morn-
ing upon spotting a large
group of news reporters wait-
ing to talk to them.
The Chinese are reportedly
interested in medical equip-
ment and machinery. Their
inspection tour of the hospital
has been rescheduled and will
be conducted in secret.
The delegation, the first
from the People's Republic of
China to come to Israel using
Chinese passports, is headed
by Lo Chi Min, a Chinese
businessman who holds Bel-
gian citizenship but has exten-
sive ties with Peking.
The Chinese government has
been making great efforts to
downplay the visit, and the
Israelis are also stressing its
unofficial nature.
Nevertheless, both countries
seem to be treading softly to-
ward some form of commercial
contact, with the possibility of
more significant relations in
the offing.
There have been reports
recently that Israeli officials
have made clandestine visits to
China. The highest-ranking
Israeli said to have gone to
Peking is Avraham Tamir of
the Foreign Ministry.

Wallace also quoted a CBS
poll in which 630 people were
asked, "Do you think it is right
that the United States gives
more money in foreign aid to
Israel than any other coun-
try?" Wallace said 13 percent
said yes, 72 percent said no
and 15 percent did not know.
In its statement, AIPAC
said that in virtually every
public opinion poll, "the Amer-
ican public has consistently
reaffirmed the strong support
for Israel as a friend and ally of
the United States."
AIPAC said that U.S. fore-
ign assistance to Israel is
based on Israel's role as a
"critical United States ally, a
full-fledged democracy, strug-
gling to survive in a hostile and
unstable part of the world."
AIPAC said it is preparing a
more detailed refutation of
Wallace's charges.

In the one hour documen-
tary, Wiesel recounts his jour-

personal terms, compelling
viewers to remember forever
the unprecendented tragedy.
"As long as we remember
there is a chance," he says in
the film. "I do not think we
should remember for the sake

Israeli Flags
PARIS Hundreds of blue
and white Israeli flags flut-
tered over the Champs Ely-
sees and adorned every public
building here in honor of the
visit of President Chaim Her-
zog of Israel.
He arrived at Paris airport
recently, where he was person-
ally greeted by President
Francois Mitterrand. The
French leader assured him,
and the people of Israel, of
France's enduring friendship
and support.
Herzog is the first Israeli
chief of state to make an offi-
cial visit to France. All prime
ministers of Israel, with the
notable exception of Mena-
chem Begin, have come here in
their official capacity.
Under the strict, traditional
protocol observed by the
French, those were treated as
working visits that did not
warrant special pomp and pag-
But for President Herzog,
the French outdid themselves.
Mitterrand waited on the tar-
mac until the presidential
plane landed and then
embraced the visitor. Military
bands played the French and
Israeli national anthems.
Accompanied by Mitterrand,
Herzog was driven to the
Hotel de Marigny, a former
Rothschild residence that
serves as France's official
guest house for visiting VIPs.
The motocade was escorted
by two cavalry squadrons of
presidential guards in their
early 19th-century dress uni-
forms of white breeches, black
frock coats, horsetail helmets
and with drawn swords.
But Herzog's five-day visit
was more than simply an occa-
sion for display. French and
Israeli diplomats see it as an
affirmation that Franco-Israeli
relations have normalized
after 40 years during which
they gyrated between warm
friendship and bitter acri-
A peak of sorts was reached
in the "great alliance" of 1956
between David Ben-Gurion
and French Premier Guy Mol-
let at the time of the ill-fated
Suez campaign.
At other times, relations
were openly hostile, as on the
eve of the 1967 Six-Day War,
when President Charles de
Gaulle imposed an arms
embargo on Israel.
According to protocol, Her-
zog was returning Mitter-
rand's 1982 visit to Israel.
Will Visit Normandy
Herzog also met with Prime
Minister Michael Rocard;
Alain Phoher, president of the
French Senate; and Laurent
Fabius, speaker of the
National Assembly.
Herzog, who served in the
British army with the rank of
major during World War II,
participated in the D-Day land-
ings on June 6, 1944.
During his stay in France, he

rare silver filigree Chanukah
menorah from 19th-century
Poland. His interest sparked,
Horwitz began his quest for
the treasures of Judaica.
When he started, there were
only a dozen or so Judaica
collectors in this country and
the history of Judaica was
being purchased unbeknownst
to the Jewish community by
established Europeans and
American museums, although,
Horwitz notes, many of the
museums rarely display their
Jewish treasures.
Horwitz's favorites are the
simple artifacts that make up
folk art, particularly the Torah
mantles and binders, paper cut
Ketubas (a Jewish marriage
contract), and the crafted stit-
ching on matzoh covers, tallit
and tefillin bags. In many
countries Jews were forbidden
from entering the guilds, so
they developed their own
styles and skills. Later paper-
work became part of their art-
form, with the Italian Jews
contributing tremendously to
the development of Ketubot.
Horwitz expressed pride
that the Jewish community "is
now aware that we have our
own styles. Jewish items are
finding their way into our
homes. With our observances
of the Jewish festivals, we
realize the functional beauty of
the objects that we use as a
matter of routine. The art in
our homes reaches back to
time immemorial; it is func-
tional but is also a thing of
Over the years Joseph and
Olyn Horwitz have donated
more than 400 ceremonial and
folk art objects to the B'nai
B'rith museum, ranging from
the simple to the priceless. The
oldest is a small spice cup from
the 16th century. One of the
most precious items is a pair of
Jewish candlesticks, made in
Danzig in 1680. The candle-
sticks came from an aristo-
cratic family in England,
whose will was a stipulation
that the artifacts had to go
into Jewish hands. Horwitz
was able to get them out of
England on that basis.
The new museum catalogue
gives collectors of Judaica an
opportunity to learn more
about the hundreds of Jewish
treasures housed there.

B'nai B'rith Visit
Pollard In Prison
George L. Spectre, Associate
Director of the International
Council of B'nai B'rith, the
first representative of a Jew-
ish organization to receive offi-
cial permission to meet with
the imprisoned Anne Hender-
son-Pollard, spoke with Mrs.
Henderson-Pollard for six
hours at the federal correc-
tions facility in Danbury, Con-
necticut, on October 13. Mrs.
Henderson-Pollard has served
23 months of two concurrent
five-year sentences for being
an accessory after the fact to
passing classified information
to a foreign power. Her hus-
band, Jonathan Jay Pollard, is
serving a life sentence for
passing that information to
agents of Israel.
According to Mr. Spectre,
Mrs. Henderson-Pollard, who
appeared weak, thin and frail,
claims that the medical treat-
ment she has received in the
three institutions where she
has been incarcerated has been
inadequate, and she is denied
examinations by specialists in
her disease from Yale and
Johns Hopkins Universities.
She said she is required to
work fulltime, despite suffer-
ing from intestinal, opthalmo-
logical and gynecological prob-
lems. She also complained of
excessive restrictions on per-
sonal visits and on mail and
phone contacts with the out-
side world, including relatives.
She told Mr. Spectre that she
has no privacy in conversa-
tions with lawyers and rabbis.
She asked Mr. Spectre to
convey the following requests:
that she be allowed to see
specialists for her illness; that
restrictions on her access to
relatives, friends and the pub-
lic be lifted; that she be
granted community custody
(furlough privileges); and that
her husband be transferred
from the federal penitentiary
for hardened criminals in Mar-
ion, Illinois, to Danbury, and
that she be allowed to see him.
Mrs. Henderson-Pollard also
asked for the "support and
understanding of the Jewish
community," their cards and
letters and the right to receive
them, and help in pressing her
demands for proper medical
attention. Her attorneys are
pursuing several avenues of
legal appeal, and she expres-
sed the hope that she would be
released "to lead a productive
life" in society. "I am not
benefiting anyone sitting
here," said Mrs. Henderson-
Seymour D. Reich, Interna-
tional President of
B'nai B'rith, said that B'nai
B'rith would continue to moni-
tor Mrs. Henderson-Pollard's
condition. "At issue here for
B'nai B'rith is not the legal
aspects of her case, but the
quality of her medical care,
said Mr. Reich.

Diaspora Friction
In a recent article in the
Jewish press, Jacqueline Lev-
ine, honorary chair of the
American Jewish Congress
Governing Council, claims that
criticism does not damage
Israel's cause in the United
States. Thus, she supports the
views of a former president of
the AJC, Arthur Hertzberg,
who not only is harshly critical
of Israeli policy, but is an
outspoken advocate for a dis-
united American Jewish com-
Why would an astute leader
hold this view, when common
sense, combined with facts,
firove Levine and her col-
eagues wrong? Sadly, her
admiration for the Labor party
and her dislike for Prime Min-
ister Yitzhak Shamir may be
the motivating factor. If so,
she does all of us a disservice.
It is regrettable that personal

Thirty Day Reprieve For Koor
ailing Koor Industries got a
month's reprieve from bank-
ruptcy proceedings, but the
future of the giant Histadrut-
owned conglomerate remains
in doubt.
A Tel Aviv district court
agreed to a 30-day postpone-
ment of hearings on a petition
by Bankers Trust Co. of New
York for liquidation of Koor, to
satisfy a $20 million unpaid
Koor's attorneys told the
court the company is prepar-
ing a comprehensive recovery
plan that would be fair to its
creditors. It is said to involve
interim financing by Israeli
banks, which are Koor's larg-
est creditors.
But the plan requires the
Treasury to put $50 million
into Koor as a reassurance to
the banks.
Bankers Trust, which is
Koor's largest overseas credi-
tor, is still pressing for the
appointment of a temporary
receiver. The Americans
apparently have lost faith in
Koor's ability to rescue itself.
Israeli banks are said to be
wary of lending more money to
Koor. The new loans would be
unsecured if Bankers Trust's
petition for liquidation is even-
tually granted.
There were reports that
three major Austrian banks to
which Koor owes money were
joining Israeli banks in an
attempt to avert bankruptcy.
The government, mean-
while, faces a dilemma. While
the Finance Ministry is loath
to agree to any bailout plan,
Koor's collapse would be an
economic and political disaster
for Israel.
The trade union-owned

Jews in the United States. But
this is not the issue. It is naive
for her to believe that public
attacks on one party or one
leader in Israel enhances the
position of the other, when in
fact, to the world, attacks by
Jews on Jews indicts all Jews.
This is especially true when it
is voiced in terms that are
denigrating thereby casting a
negative image of the entire
Jewish nation throughout the
world. It is this irresponsible
rhetoric which many of us
believe has caused severe
harm not only to Israel, but to
all the Jewish people.
When Jewish leaders
denounce Israel in the most
derogatory terms, does this
encourage Americans to travel
there, invest in Bonds, support
UJA, or make aliyah? And
what effect will their words
and actions have on Jewish
youngsters who may view
Israel with a negative attitude
for years into the future? Per-
haps the efforts of Levine and
others may help elect "their"
party in Israel, but what about
the American Jewish commun-
ity they helped to fragment? Is
this, too, good for Israel and
Jews everywhere?
Well known Arab propa-
gandist, M.T. Mehdi in his
weekly television broadcast
lauded the American Jewish
Congress and its former presi-
dent, Arthur Hertzberg, as
examples of those Jews with
"independent views." Only
recently the representative of
Senegal spoke of Israeli "brute
force," echoing the words of
some Jewish critics of Israel.
This is why Henry Kissinger
cautioned Jewish leaders that
we should not let the "enemy
utilize quotations as evidence
to support their position about
Israel in general."
According to Levine's own
organization, a poll by the A.J.
Congress reports that support
for Israel has declined by 21

Israel Has Hawk Eye On Palestinian Donations
In the wake of Jordan's
decision to cut ties to the West
Bank, the Israeli government
has been closely watching for-
eign donations to Palestinians
in the administered territories,
Israeli diplomats at the United
Nations said Wednesday.
"We are concerned that the
U.N. and its organs would be
used to channel funds for the
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion and its supporters in the
territories, pretending that
the money is for humanitarian
aid," a member of the Israeli
U.N. Mission said in an inter-
It was disclosed that several
Arab countries who never con-
tributed to the welfare of the
Palestinians in the territories
have donated almost $18 mil-
lion to the U.N. Relief and
Works Agency for Palestinian
Refugees in the Near East,
known as UNRWA.
Israel, the diplomat said,
expressed concern to UNRWA
officials that these Arab con-
tributions may be intended to
help fund the 10-month-old
uprising in the West Bank and
"There is an intifada, and
the Arab countries who never
showed much interest in the
welfare of the Palestinians are
sending money to show their
support and sympathy," the
diplomat said.
But the $18 million amount
is not meaningful in compari-
son to the more than $60 mil-
lion the United States is con-
tributing to UNRWA this
year, the Israeli official said.
The 1988 UNRWA budget is
$233 million.
UNRWA's commissioner
general, Giorgio Giacomelli,
said Wednesday that the
agency is facing an emer-
gency, because its income is
not keeping pace with rising
demand on its services.
In his annual report to the
General Assembly, the com-
missioner warned that the con-
tinued uprising in the territor-
ies would further complicate
the grave financial situation of
Maikovskis Detained During E scape Attempt Nazi
German authorities have
detained Boleslavs Maikovs-

percent among post graduates
and 62 percent believe the
United States should talk with
the PLO. To what extent has
criticism of Israel encouraged
this dangerous trend?
No, criticism of Israel does
not help Israel, it harms the
Jewish State. Until recently
there has been a gentleman's
agreement that debate on mat-
ters affecting Israel's security
are matters beyond the pur-
view of Diaspora Jews. That
longstanding understanding
seems to have ended on March
21, when the American Jewish
Congress executive director
announced in his state-of-the-
union address that "Jews of
the Diaspora have a responsi-
bility to express their views on
the safety and security of
Israel." Is this a responsible
Some consider the ZOA to be
a "hard line" organization.
When it comes to the defense
of Israel's good name and
security, we are proud to be so
designated. It is obvious that
Israel certainly cannot depend
on fair-weather friends or
those who place personal polit-
ical agendas before the best
interests of the Jewish State.
The president of Israel,
Chaim Herzog, is highly
respected. While he must be
neutral in his position, he does
come from the Labor Party.
Levine and those who share
her views should take seriously
the words recently spoken by
Herzog: attacks upon Israel's
morality by Jewish leaders
abroad are tragically harmful
. the expression of moral
anguish and criticism of Israel
is manipulation by our enemies
... the latest disturbances are
not an argument about peace,
they are about the right of the
Jewish people to have their
own state this is a question
of community courage .. our
belief in ourselves and in the
justice of our cause."
Israel's Jewish critics have
much to repent at this time.
The Jewish nation and its citi-
zens have had little rest for the
past 40 years. On its birthday,
it deserves a better gift than
Jewish disunity.
