Holocaust film follows soldier's search
Ahlem survivors Ben Sieradzki, left, and Sol Bekermus talk about their experiences of the Holocaust at
Hillel at UF on Wednesday afternoon.
* THE DOCUMENTARY WAS
SCREENED AT UF.
By LINDSEY ROBINSON
Alligator Contributing Writer
On April 10, 1945, a 20-year-old
American soldier named Vernon
Tott took 19 pictures of Jewish pris-
oners at a slave labor camp, called
Ahlem, that his division liberated
The photos later dominated the
last decade of Tott's life, which he
devoted to identifying the gaunt
and haunted faces he had cap-
On Wednesday, Tott's widow
and four Ahlem survivors, two of
whom were featured in the photos,
came to UF for a screening of the
"Angel of Ahlem," which tells the
story of Tott's journey to find the
people in the photos.
Ben Sieradzki, Sol Bekermus,
Ben Berkenwald and Chaim
Melamed, the survivors, had lunch
with students at Hillel at UF and
talked about the legacy of Tott's
work and their experiences at
Ahlem. Sieradzki, Bekermus and
Berkenwald were featured in the
film, which was produced by UF's
After his quest to identify the
survivors began in 1995, Tott met
Bekermus, whose brother Abe
was identified in the photos. He is
pictured wearing a black suit once
owned by a Hungarian Jew who
was forced to leave his clothes
Bekermus said that by taking
the photos, Tott had evidence of
the prisoners' suffering.
The prisoners of Ahlem never
bathed, Bekermus said. They were
usually given warm water flavored
with seeds, except when the water
was used to wash the floors.
They were overseen by German
guards who were often taken
out of prison to run the camps,
Bekermus said. By the time the
prisoners were liberated, many
were too weak to eat.

Bracelets help Ugandan kids
By JESSICA BRAND
Alligator Contributing Writer
Before Andrew Ssewankambo, 38 Ugandan
children kicked soccer balls made of banana
leaves and played without proper uniforms, but
Ssewankambo, 19, is changing that.
On a trip to Uganda two years ago, SFCC
professors Carol Thomas and Kerry Chancey met
Ssewankambo, a Makerere University student, and
were inspired by his story
Ssewankambo is a mentor and soccer coach to
38 Ugandan boys on his youth soccer team, infor-
mally know as "Andrew's Kids." An accomplished
artist, he sold his paintings to fund the team.
Thomas and Chancey raised enough money by
fundraising and selling Ssewankambo's artwork
in Gainesville to buy uniforms, but they wanted
to do more.
This semester they enlisted the help of the SFCC
African Relief Club and Florida Rotaract at UF to
develop a more sustainable campaign to raise
"This is people in the community who are
just trying to help each other. And they're young
people, which is amazing," Thomas said.
Brittney Davidson, a UF sophomore and the
international chairwoman for Rotaract, came up
with the idea to design and sell bracelets on the UF
and SFCC campuses.
Her plan was inspired by similar campaigns
like the LIVESTRONG bracelets, but she is hoping
to design a more intricate product, she said.
Thomas and Chancey brought back beads made
by Ugandan leaders out of rolled paper on their
initial trip and have had SFCC students sew them
onto leather bands to make about 375 bracelets.
"We liked that the Ugandan leaders
contributed to the original design, but
the bracelets are difficult to make in
Sale of these prototypes began on the SFCC
campus Tuesday. Profits will be invested into mak-
ing more bands in a more efficient design.
"We liked that the Ugandanbeaders contributed
to the original design, but the bracelets are difficult
to make in mass quantities," Davidson said.
Rotaract is putting together a team to help
Davidson apply for grants to pay for the bracelets
and hopefully facilitate the launch of a finished
product by the end of the semester.

No Mo' Tow
Bill of rights forces tow
companies in line
Shere's a new bill of rights in town.
This one has nothing to do with freedom of speech, the
right to bear arms (grizzly or polar?) or ... whatever the
rest of them are. This bill of rights is about towing.
The Gainesville City Commission discussed the idea last
month, and the bill of rights was written. The commission will
refer back to it in November.
Finally, the towing companies will have to start following
the rules that are already in place.
With recent separate incidents of a towing company trying
to charge someone to view digital photos of his illegally parked
car and refuse someone else a credit card payment, it's about
time we have a bill of rights to point at in the towing offices if
companies try to charge outlandish fees.
The bill of rights would require towing companies to release
your vehicle within an hour after you request it, as long as your
fees are paid. But you could retrieve any of your personal prop-
erty from your vehicle before you pay the fees. Hey, as long as
you can get your favorite CD out, who needs the actual car?
One point on the list states no fee can be charged for using a
credit card, but one can be assessed if you use your debit card.
While we don't think companies should be able to charge a fee
for debit cards at all, the bill of rights says nothing about how
much that fee can be. The commission should impose a maxi-
Another problem is that towing companies have citations
piling up the three biggest offenders shared 100 violations
among the three of them. But they won't have to start paying
the fines associated with the violations unless they are convicted
of them. The earliest they could be taken to trial is December.
The city should look into ways to speed this process up.
Then, once the companies have to pay fines, the number of
violations will go down and hopefully, fewer cars will be

A video Tuesday on CNN.com reported on a community
in Maine that voted Wednesday night whether it should in-
clude contraceptive services in the middle-school health care
plan. If allowed, it would be the kids' choices to inform their
parents if they desire to use contraception.
I wish my town meetings were this exciting.
Of course, the Family Research Council, a group that
"champions marriage and family as the foundation of civili-
zation," was all over this. A CNN reporter interviewed a rep-
resentative of the council who found the situation "tragic"
and said it would promote promiscuity in children. Offering
contraceptives to middle school kids is a "wrong-minded"
solution, according to the council.
Initially, I found myself, much to my surprise, agreeing
with the Judeo-Christian-based organization. The CNN
reporter put it best when he asked, "Isn't this crisis time?
Shouldn't we step in?"
After all, you don't turn a fat kid loose at a Sizzler buffet,
and you don't give sex-crazed preteens tools to further their
50 Cent-music-video fantasies.
As I expressed my disgust to my roommate, she pointed
out one major point I had completely missed: With or with-

However, it happens, and we need to address the issue by
educating children instead of taking away supplies helping
those already at risk.
Or not. If we won't provide contraception, maybe we
should just take away vitamins, too. No more Centrum it
prevents people from practicing healthful habits.
The sex-education system in America is severely lack-

better sex education than others, but we need to bridge the
' Sex education is also a parental responsibility. We are the
future parents, and we need to recognize our future responsi-
bilities. What we don't know can hurt us and our children.
The Maine middle sSchool needs this change. And the na-
tion's attitude toward contraception and sex education needs
to change. Hopefully schools will educate students instead of
handing out birth control like a Pez dispenser.
If all else fails, we can just fall back on the abstinence-only
plan. It's obviously worked so well.

Ah, the eight-to-eight. It's a date, a
guaranteed hook-up and a secret friend
all rolled into one.
An eight-to-eight is someone you only
see between the hours of 8 p.m. and 8 a.m.
It's a term I first heard from my friend, a
self-proclaimed relationship escape artist.
The eight-to-eight isn't a booty call
or a friend with benefits. They have du-
ties similar to those of a boy mend or
girlfriend, such as. making out and the
occasional dinner, but because they are
only seen at nighttime hours they don't
have the title.
The basis for the eight-to-eight is that
he or she isn't seen or heard from during

12 hours, and then they expire at 8 a.m.,

New UF library online only
RYAN LEVICK I AVENUE WRITER
Some days, you just don't want to get out of
The friendly staff of the campus libraries
knows this, and it's doing something creative
to help serve you, the student, better. It's in the
process of building a new library located at the
coordinates 94, 28, 24 in Cybrary City.
The new UF library only exists in the virtual
networking tool known as Second Life.
Second Life is a 3-D simulated world created
by Linden Lab. Real people using customiz-
able avatars can convert actual U.S. currency
to Second Life currency
(Linden Dollars), network We're still tr)

joy all that an alternative Lau
virtual life has to offer. UF instruction
Second Life looks like
World of Warcraft but is
set in a surreal modem day, and there are no
quests, no objectives and no real purposes ex-
cept the ones the user sets for him or herself.
Second Life has been steadily growing since
its 2003 release. As of February, its gross domes-
tic product was an astounding $220 million,
according to CNNMoney.com.
A team of three librarians has been heading
an initiative to start a virtual library in Second
Life, and it's not alone. Other universities, in-
cluding Harvard, Stanford and Brown, all have
a presence in Second Life, and many of them
are already holding virtual classes. Naturally,
it's time for UF to join in on the fun.
But how will Second Life make real-life re-
search easier for you and me?
Laura Woodruff, instruction and reference
librarian on campus and one of three driving
forces behind UF in Second Life, wants to ex-
plore the possibilities.
"We're still trying to decide exactly what to
use it for," she said.
Woodruff, along with physical sciences
librarian Sara Gonzalez and digital projects
technology librarian Laurie Taylor, already has
some definite uses in mind: an interlibrarian
conferencing system, a virtual reference desk
and a place for students to meet and socialize.
What else the Second Life project could grow to
become remains to be seen.

"We would love to
see students give us

said. "Student volun-
teers are something we
could definitely use."
who use the libraries will be at the helm of what
happens to this experiment in virtual learning.
Graphic designers, computer code writers and
anybody willing to give their time and creative
feedback are just what the team wants.
In the future, there could be virtual mu-
seums for student art, an entire replication of
Library West, or even E-learning classes held
entirely in Second Life.
For now, the project is in its infant stages.
But if it takes off, the possibilities are endless: In
fact, The American Library Association, which
makes its virtual home across the street from
UF's library, has a pirate ship on its property.
One day, maybe a virtual Albert and Alberta
can assist you with your library needs.

This past weekend,, band mem-

On Saturday and Sunday, the

the help of Abyssmal Entertainment

Fliers were passed out inviting fans
to be extras in the music video, singer
and trombonist Mike Loffredo said.
Fans came from all over the state,
he said, including Naples, Orlando,
Tallahassee, Jacksonville, Tampa and Ft.
The concept for the music video
is the progression of the band, Mike
Loffredo said. It starts with the band
playing house parties, then small con-
certs, and finally larger concerts, where
they are now.
One of the first parts of the music
video was filmed locally at Common
Grounds, and the second part was shot
in Orlando, where three .of the band
members are originally from. They shot
footage at a house with a pool party,
complete with grilling and a Slip 'n'

They are also going
to be sending it to MTV2 and Fuse.
These aspirations aren't too ambi-
tious, considering T13C was runner-
up in the MTV Orlando Battle of the
Bands and a semi-finalist in NBC's
show "America's Got Talent" last year.
They're also booked for this year's
There is no release date for the video

Abdullah looks to recover from offensive struggles
By KARL HYPPOLITE
Ameera Abdullah is searching
for her offense.
Just one -year after scoring 11
goals and recording 24 points
(a tally of goals and assists),
the preseason All-Southeastern
Conference midfielder has yet to
record a single point this season.
Abdullah's lack of production
is one of the reasons the UF soccer
team (7-4-2, 3-2 SEC) has struggled
offensively to this point.
"It's been a little frustrating,"
Abdullah said. "But the impor-
tant thing is that we're going out
there and being aggressive. We've
outshot almost every team we've
L played this season."
Lack of aggression definitely
hasn't been the problem for
Abdullah. Despite having yet to
score a goal, the junior is third
on the team with 22 shots thus
far. That's even more noteworthy
considering Abdullah suffered a
left peroneal tendon strain against
South Florida and missed four
The Colorado native got off to a
good start in the first two matches
of the season despite not finding
the back of the net.
"It's kind of hard for me right
now coming off an injury and try-
ing to get back into it," she said. "I
got off to a really good, aggressive
start, and I'm kind of set back right
now. I'm trying to get back into
the flow. Hopefully, this weekend
I can get my first goal and get on
As she attempts to return to
full strength, Abdullah's biggest
hurdle is regaining the explosive-
ness she lost following her injury.
Abdullah hasn't been able to beat
defenders with her athleticism as
she could in the past, which may
be a reason for all of her missed
shots up to this point.
"Obviously I've lost a little

with all the prac-
tice and all the
going to get bet-

Abdullah close to getting it
In the meantime, the Gators
are enjoying Abdullah's current
contributions the kinds that
don't appear in the box score.
Abdullah's defensive role is key
for a team that has allowed just
nine goals in 13 matches. And
though Abdullah has yet to record
an assist, her timely passing has
"She's playing well for us
now," UF coach Becky Burleigh
said. "She's coming back from her
injury and playing well. I expect
her to break through soon, but it's
not just about scoring. She does a
lot more for us than that."
Abdullah expects to score her
first goal in the near future. With

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 18, 2007 U ALLIGATOR, 19
By BRYAN JONES
Alligator Staff Writer
UF coach Urban Meyer said Wednesday that sopho- -
more wide receiver Percy Harvin has had his strongest .
week of practice to date.
Harvin's success has possibly been inspired by the
presence of former NFL All-Pro wide receiver Cris Carter,
who spoke with the team this week following the death of
scout-team quarterback Michael "Sunshine" Guilford.
Meyer said the two have bonded.
"They talk to each other, and they spent some time to-
gether," Meyer said. "Cris always talks about taking your
game to the next level. Percy is one of those guys that
admires guys like Cris Carter."
Harvin's improvement can also be
attributed to good health, a rarity for
the wideout who has suffered from
nagging injuries since arriving at UF.
ANTWINE OUT: Sophomore defensive
tackle Brandon Antwine will miss
Antwlne Saturday's game against Kentucky
due to lower back pain, Meyer said.
"I think Torrey Davis will play a little bit more and I'm
hoping (Lawrence) Marsh and (Terron) Sanders," Meyer
said. "If we get a little five-man rotation in there, I think ... -.
we'll be better off." :
O-LINE POTENTIAL: Meyer is very optimistic about the
future of UF's offensive line.
"I think the future of our offensive line, if you look '.;
at who's waiting in the wings, who's developing, who's
coming back, you'll have one of the best offensive lines in .
college football in the next year or two here," he said. ....,
"You can just see it happening. I like the demeanor. I .
like the way they're being coached. I like the way they're

Calathes, fellow freshmen take on '04s in pickup game
HOOPS, from page 20
Calathes is also only the third player to be
named Mr. Basketball in the state of Florida as
a junior and the third to ever win the award
During his senior year, Calathes was
named the Gatorade Player of the Year, and
he was a starter on the 2007 McDonald's All-
American East team.
With all that in mind, Calathes enters the
Gators' program with more promise than per-
haps any player in the Donovan era.
In a rebuilding year it seems obvious that
he would play a major role, but it has yet to be
decided whose shoes Calathes will fill.
"He's got the ball-handling skills in the
open floor to certainly be a point guard, but

ing up to her death. I remember
looking around at the rest of my
red, teary-eyed teammates. I
remember the hugs her parents
gave each of us.
I know the Gators held a
memorial service Monday night,
and some players attended
Guilford's funeral Tuesday.
Those events will stay with them
years from now, when days at
the practice field are long gone
how he handles the ball against pressure or
against quick, athletic guards, that remains
to be seen," Donovan said. "I think Nicky's a
versatile player. He'll be all over the place."
Calathes understands he must handle the
complicated role by putting in extra time at
the gym and by paying attention to areas of
his game he once neglected.
"I think Nicky's a versatile player.
He'll be all over the place."

"I never used to box out in high school,
and I'm learning to box out now," Calathes
said. "Every possession counts, and that
will be good for us. In high school we killed
I remember going to Ashley's
wake and standing in the line
wrapped around the building so
I could pay my respects. It was
difficult to grasp. Ashley was a
fighter and so full of life, and
there she was before me, lying
peacefully in her No. 33 basket-
I remember watching my bas-
ketball coach and several others
carry her casket to the church's
altar at her funeral. I remember
listening to the poems her clos-
est friends had written for her as
part of her eulogy.
As the Gators prepare for
their road trip this weekend, a
game may seem trivial. But it's
important to understand that
life must go on, and the ones to
help you along the way are your
The first game without Ashley
was a little empty, like something
was missing, but we never forgot

hair her favorite color and

on our white sneakers.
Our team won the conference
and district championships that
everybody that we played. Now I'm playing
the one, two and three, so I need to box out,
rebound and do all the little things."
A celebrated group of former Gators know
firsthand what Calathes brings to the court.
In the past year, when the 2006 Gators were
celebrating their second national title, the '04s
took some time to keep a tradition alive.
Similar to the famous pick-up game be-
tween the '04s and former players David Lee,
Matt Walsh and Anthony Roberson in 2005,
the old Gators took on the new ones in a five-

year, but what I remember most
about the season is Ashley.
To the Gators: I know some
of you are hurting, but it's im-
portant to share stories of your
friend's life, because that's what
keeps his spirit alive.
It's important to embrace the
Guilford family and tell your
stories to them. Some of you
may hold tales that his parents
will cherish forever.

He became a leader.
"Just then he gained the

Wildcats linebacker Wesley
Woodyard said. "It was really
one of the first times that people

ball team, it is definitely going to be one of
the most memorable.
