Elizabeth Taylor and Orson
Welles narrate the movie and
both stars donated their services
to this project.
Hans and Use Juergensen had
an opportunity to discuss this
movie with Simon Wiesenthal
during his University of South
Florida campus appearance last
year. As Dr. Jergensen recalls,
"Under the protection of five
security guards, we compared
notes with Wiesenthal and began
to discuss the past in Europe. We
were speaking in German and
comparing Holocaust and
genocide films and productions.
"Wiesenthal raved about this
movie, 'Genocide.' He said it was

Novick, who also addressed the
convention opening, insisted that
"It is Arab refusal to accept and
recognize Israel which is the ob-
stacle to peace." He urged the
U.S. government to convince the
Arabs to be realistic if they truly
intend to have peace.
According to Novick, "Israel is
ready for direct negotiations, the
Arabs are not. Israel is branded
as inflexible, and the Arabs can
sit back and wait for the U.S. to
lean on Israel for more conces-
sions. I believe that it is time that
the Administration come to grips
with the reality that this ap-
proach does not address the most
vital elements which are the ob-
stacles to peace," Novick said.
"This is the time for the United
States to reinforce its relation-
ship with Israel. Let the Presi-
dent send the Arabs a message
which says: 'We will make Israel
militarily stronger, economically
more powerful and concentrate
our primary efforts in the area of
creating a bridge of friendship
and cooperation between Israel,
Lebanon and Egypt. And hope-
fully, at an early date, the King of
Jordan will also find the courage
to join this union of nations who
may not love each other but
intend to live with each other!"

from democratic groups and

same works, produced in
Argentina, are reappearing. Only
the name of the publishing house
has changed from Militancia

According to Martinez, "There

The Simon Wiesenthal Center
has invested 2'/i years in the
production of "Genocide"; a
multi-image presentation which
tells, through actual, documented
words of eyewitnesses, the story
of the Holocaust in a way the
world can neither forget, refute,
nor ignore.
Did We Do Enough to Help?
Our Role in Holocaust Under Scrutiny
There has been a growoig
controversy in the Ameri-
can Jewish community over
the role of American Jewry
in the rescue of European
Jews during the Holocaust.
The behavior of American
Jewry, however, cannot be
evaluated in a vacuum. In-
formation on and under-
standing of the circum-
stances in which they oper-
ated including the role of
the American and British
governments is essential
to put their behavior in his-
torical context.
Under Fire
executive secretary of the Holo-
caust Survivors Association,
U.S.A., has issued a sharp attack
on Simon Wiesenthal, the famed
Nazi-hunter, for having "com-
mitted a tragic error" when the
Simon Wiesenthal Center
presented its Humanitarian
Laureate Award to Jeane Kirk-
patrick, the U.S. Ambassador to
the UN.
In an open letter to Weisen-
thal, who is listed as honorary
president of the Holocaust Survi-
vors Association, John Ranz
accused Kirkpatrick of serving as
an "apologist for fascist dictator-
ships engaged in torture and
genocidal mass murder" in El
Salvador and Guatemala "where
entire villages including women
and children are being
Ranz said Kirkpatrick's sup-
port of Israel cannot "excuse
these crimes and her collabora-
tion with these murderous
dictatorships You committed
a tragic error. The true voice of
the Holocaust victims and their
legacy is with the peasants and
the poor and not with the brutal
and inhuman landowners and
militarists of Central America."
The award was presented for
Kirkpatrick's action "as a stead-
fast and loyal friend of the Jewish
people committed to the security
of the State of Israel, and to the
causes held sacred by freedom
loving people everywhere." The
Holocaust Survivors Association
is active in ferreting out f. -er
Nazi war criminals now residing
in the U.S. and campaigning for
Congressional action to bring
these criminals to justice.
In an effort to provide this
framework and some answers to
the question of whether Ameri-
can Jews "did enough" to rescue
European Jews, the Jewish Tele-
graphic Agency recently inter-
viewed Dr. Gerhart Riegner, cur-
rently secretary general of the
World Jewish Congress. Riegner,
an outstanding fighter against
Nazism, served from 1936 to the
end of the war as the WJC repre-
sentative in Geneva.
THERE HE established an ef-
fective network which enabled
him to gather and transmit to
American and British Jewry and
their governments crucial infor-
mation on the day-to-day devel-
opments in the Nazis' war
against the Jews.
In this interview with JTA,
Riegner provides insights on the
role of the Allies and American
Jewry with regard to rescue.
What follows is a three-part con-
densed version of this interview.
The first part deals with the
famous 1942 telegram Riegner,
then 30 years old, sent to Ameri-
can and British Jews revealing
the Nazi plan behind the deporta-
tions and massacres he had been
reporting on to them and their
initial response to this informa-
Q: The telegram you sent to
the World Jewish Congress in
London and New York on August
8, 1942, via American and British
diplomats in Switzerland, that
the Germans were discussing
Elans for a "final solution" was
ased on a report from a German
industrialist. What made the
report credible?
A: There were three major
reasons why I believed that re-
port, or convinced myself that it
was credible. One, Hitler had
threatened a number of times in
his speeches that the one thing
that was certain was that Euro-
pean Jews will not survive the
war. Second, the message showed
there was a plan (behind) the
whole range of deportations from
the West which started on one
day, July 15 in Paris, Lyon,
Marseilles, Amsterdam, Brus-
sels, Antwerp which otherwise
remained isolated actions.
We already knew about the de-
portations from Central Europe
Germany, Austria and
Czechoslovakia Third, I had
seen the Nazis come to power in
Germany. I knew their character,
their ruthless fanatacism and
brutality. We knew they mur-
dered political enemies, the
places in Berlin where they tor-
tured them it was the cellars of
the (former) Communist Party
newspaper. .
Q: What action did you expect
Gerhart Riegner
from American Jews in reaction
to the telegram?
A: I discussed this with one
person only, Professor (Paul)
Guggenheim, the legal advisor of
the World Jewish Congress. He
felt, and I accepted this, that the
Jews in the free world had better
judgement than we did, sur-
rounded as we were by Nazis
in Germany, France, Austria and
Italy and that we should leave
it to them to undertake action
that was appropriate in the
judgement of a Jewry that waa
completely free.

president of the World and the
American Jewish Congress, re-
ceived your cable via London on
August 28. According to Saul

Fourteen year old Michelle Dwoskin has really had an exciting
year and we just wanted to share the details with you. Michelle,
the daughter of Fran and Ralph Dwoskin, was recently inducted
into the Junior National Honor Society at Buchannon Junior
High School, where she is in the ninth grade. In addition, she
made the "Principal's Honor Roll" twice this year and was
accepted into this year's Learning Center program. Due to her
high standing both scholastically and in conduct, Michelle was
one of two students from her school to qualify for the Duro-
Amencan Program. She will join other local junior high school
students for a wonderful 23 day trip through Europe this
summer. These students, chaperoned by teachers, will visit
Great Britain, France, Italy, Switzerland, and then fly home
from Switzerland. Not only are Michelle and her family thrilled
about all of these exciting plans but so are Michelle's Grandpar-
ents, Lillian Dwoskin of Miami Beach and Tampans, Harry and
Sophie Goldstein.
Also, some more news in the Dwoskin family, older brother,
Howard, who is celebrating his 21st birthday is being treated to
a Bahamian cruise by his Grandparents, Harry and Sophie
Goldstein. Howard attends Hills borough Community College.
Cantor William and Brina Hauben are mighty proud of their
son, Sheldon. He recently graduated Cum Laude from Van-
derbilt University with a double major Economics and
Political Science. This summer he will be interning in
Washington in Congressman Tom Lantos' office. Then in the
fall. Sheldon will begin law school at UCLA. Sounds like you
have your immediate future well planned and packed full. We'll
be wanting to hear from you in law school, Sheldon, so keep us
informed. ---------
Some of our young friends have been a real "smash" lately in
the "Prep Tennis" Championships. Participating from Jesuit
High School were Greg Goldman, Alan Mezrah. and Stephen
Cohen and participating from Chamberlain was Jon Ketover.
It's a pleasure to hear about these students who are able to both
do well in their studies and shine in the athletic arena at the
same time. --------
The Boys' Varsit., Basketball Team at Berkeley Prep enjoyed
perhaps the finest season in their history this year. The team
ended up with a final record of 21-8 and advanced to the Section-
al Championship game in West Palm Beach, where they came

Mrs. Paul Schwartz, of Bellaire Beach. Y'all are really
something special keep up the good work!
Our friend. Bev Lauring is always busy doing something
exciting and productive, but we were especially impressed with
her latest endeavor. Bev, past president of the Tampa Sym-
phony Guild and on the Tampa Board of Directors of the Florida
Gull Coast Symphony, recently recognized the need for a youth
orchestra. Bev. after noting enthusiasm from people she spoke
with in Tampa about this idea, attended the American Sym-
phony Orchestra League Conference, In Washington, D.C.,
where she participated in workshops concerning youth or-
chestras. She then prepared a proposal and submitted it to the
Board. After receiving the go-ahead. Bev spearheaded the
campaign to make area young musicians aware of the tryouts for
this new orchestra. The auditions resulted in 57 orchestra
members of which Bev is a Mother to three a cellist, an
oboist, and a violinist. Bev continues to nurture this marvelous
orchestra, whose first concert took place this past December,
through her work as "Mother of the Youth Orchestra" (a sort of
business and organizational role). We just love bearing about
what you readers are doing to keep busy so please let us know.
Bev. there is nothing like a woman if you really want to get
something done, (sorry fellas, I just had to throw that one in!!)

Israeli Exchange Student in Tampa
When 16 year old Shlomo

Nazareth Hit ("that's the new
Jewish section of Nazareth,"
Sholom explains) he worriea he'll
I be "too polite."
"Here (the United States,
iTampa in particular) everyone is
I so polite. Someone bumps into
you and you say 'Excuse me.' In
Israel we'd yell 'Watch where
[you're going!'
'And on the buses! No one
[gives up a seat. Riding to and
from school with my friends (an
hour's ride each way to Haifa,
Shlomo explains) we sing, we're
loud and joking and don't apolo-
gize for the noise we're making.
Here people don't make noise and
they sit still and don't look
around." Will he be "tough"
[again when he goes home? That's
I a concern of Shlomo's.
He has been attending Berke-
ley Preparatory School this
I semester as an exchange student

[ vice. His Tampa home is with Dr.
I Robert and Joan Goldstein and
I their three children Miriam, Beth

lattend the Berkeley Lower
[School and they responded to the
I quest for a home for an Israeli ex-
change student.
"This is the third Israeli we've
[had in our house," Dr. Bob Gold-
Istein said, "And truly Shlomo is
[like the Sabra cactus, tough on
the outside and sweet on the
[inside. It's been a unique ex-
Iperience since we have no teen-
lagres. But seeing how a child has
been raised in another culture is
I so interesting.
"The other two Israelis we've
Ihad with us were the two scha-
lliarhs at the Jewish Community
Shlomo Weinish
Center for the past two summers.
Having them gives me a chance
to practice my Hebrew."
Shlomo was very impressed
that Dr. Goldstein knew Hebrew
so well. He thought that Mrs.
Goldstein didn't know Hebrew,

only to learn one day that she
understood every word he had
been saying, she just didn't
speak to him in Hebrew.
Going to school in the United
States is like one continual party
to Shlomo. "We go to classes in
Israel 6 days a week and cover 17
subjects on a rotating schedule.
And the respect for the teachers
is entirely different. When the
teacher enters the classroom in
Israel, everyone is silent and
stands up. Here there are fewer
subjects, a shorter day and all the
after school activities." Shlomo
was all caught up in the excite-
ment of the Berkeley Basketball
team's success this year and
didn't miss a game. And he loves
His Israeli school is the high
school connected with Technion
University, Bosmat. It is for the
privilege of attending this
vocational school that Shlomo
rides the bus from Nazareth to
Haifa every day. He expects to
attend Technion University and
work with computers after
completing his three year Army
obligation following his
graduation from high school.

much more serious time in Israel

U.S. will close with a two week
bus trip togethc. with all the
Florida American Field Service
students. Then he worries, "Will
I be able to readjust to Israeli
life? And get back on the bus and
act like I used to?"
For now, Shlomo is enjoying
the parties and fun of teenage life
in Tampa although he noted that
there is more drinking at parties
here. He thinks the lack of a
"drinking age" in Israel makes it
less exciting.

Much to celebrate
No Jew, not Israeli nor diaspora, can
take his cue from others. The sad fact is
that "others" have throughout the history
of the Jews been a divisive force aiming to
destroy the Jewish continuum. In our own
time, what voice was raised against the
haphazard Arab occupation of Jerusalem?
What Christian demanded that it become
an "open city"? What Pope deplored the
fact that Jews were not permitted to visit
their own most sacred sites there?
Who, indeed, cared, not just about
Jerusalem but about all of then-Palestine
until the Jews returned to struggle for the
renewal of their ancient homeland?
And so the issue is not that there is no
cause to celebrate because "others" are
bent on denying us. Rather, the issue is
that there is cause to celebrate because the
millenial dream of the return to the City of
David has been fulfilled.
Today, the Jewish presence in Jerusalem
is dominant both numerically and
politically, and the city is first and
foremost the capital of the State of
Israel.More than three-quarters of the
population are Jews, and while their Arab
neighbors are substantial in number and
long-standing in their residence, under the
circumstances the amount of social tension
in the city is surprisingly limited.
Jerusalem Day occurs at a time when
Israel's American "friends" in the form of
Secretary of State George Shultz are in
Jerusalem applying the screws for further
concessions from Israel in the presumable
cause of peace in Lebanon. But this is only
the first step toward the Reagan
Administration's next move: the divesting
of East Jerusalem from Israeli hegemony
despite the President's previous promises
to the contrary.
The world does not recognize the Jewish
emotional attachment to Jersualem. It does
not understand the Zionist dream a
dream the world itself enflamed with its
historic persecutions and cruelties of Jews
and Judaism. We somehow believe that
Jerusalem as Israel's capital city will
prevail as one and indivisible.
And that is what there is to celebrate
next Wednesday.
French Trying to Get Release
Of Trio Accused of Spying
PARIS (JTA) The Foreign Ministry has an-
nounced that it is trying to obtain the release of three
French nationals arrested by Libyan authorities last Jan.
13 and held incommunicado in a Tripoli jail since then.
Two are construction company technicians accused of
espionage for Israel. No specific charge has been leveled
against the third man.
The Foreign Ministry said the French Consul in
Tripoli has visited the prisoners, identified as Christian
Dionisi. 52, Jean-luc Bachman, 45, and Jean Pichon, 35.
Their incarceration was disclosed when the Libyans
released a fourth French engineer they had arrested at the
ran* but later allowed to leave the country.
Continued from Page 1
Friedman, in "No Haven for the
Oppressed." the AJCongress Ex-
ecutive Board decided Wise
should go to Washington to
verify the information through
the State Department. Appar-
ently, they did not believe its
contents, otherwise, why did they
seek this confirmation?
A: They didn't ask (for confir-
mation), they sought help. Stun-
ner Welles, the Undersecretary of
State, who had the reputation of
being friendly, told Wise not to
go public (with the information),
this was his condition ....
Q: Do you mean that Wise had
no choice but to suppress the in-
A: That's my reading. They
felt that they depended on the
State Department, on Welles, for
other news because whatever
would come, would come through
official channels. They wanted
action from the government,
(and) felt they should not act
against their advice from the be-
ginning ....
I believe Wise believed (the re-
port). I've read his letters of
those days the end of August,
beginning of September to
Justice Felix Frankfurter, and to
Rev. John Haynes Holmes, a
Protestant clergyman, a very
moving letter saying, "What can
we do? I don't know what we
should do."
This was not the first report I
sent. The "Final Solution," al-
though we didn't yet call it that,
started with the Russian cam-
paign, in 1941. And they got all
kinds of additional information.
For example, the first message
from the German industrialist
was followed six to seven weeks
later by a second one: "Now I am
sure there is a 'final solution'
From the moment I had this, I
tried to get as much additional
evidence (as possible). On Octo-
ber 22. Richard Lichtheim (The
Jewish Agency representative in
Geneva) and 1 were asked to see
the American Minister, Leland
Harrison, and submit all the in-
formation we had. That came to a
document of 25 pages. We had a
long discussion with him ....
When (his report) arrived in
America in November, Welles
called in Wise and said, "I have
terrible news for you, your worst
fears are confirmed."
Q: Walter Laquer, in "The
Terrible Secret," thinks the Jews
did not really believe this or other
reports ....
A: Knowing facts and accept-
ing them are two quite different
things. Nahum Goldman, head of
the Zionist Emergency Commit-
tee during the war, in his
speeches, for example, at the
Biltmore Conference (May,
1942. where American Zionists
officially advocated the estab-
lishment of a Jewish State),
painted the most pessimistic pic-
ture of the fate of European Jew-
ry that millions of Jews are
dying. Nevertheless, he writes in
his autobiography that "some-
where in my inner heart I
couldn't believe it."
One of my colleagues in New
York sent me in 1943 or 1944, on
behalf of the Federation of Polish
Jewry, the addresses of 30,000
Polish Jews to whom they
wanted me to send packages. I
couldn't do anything; I went mad
when I saw the list. These were
people who knew what was hap-
pening, they knew that most of
the people (on the list) were no
more. But they simply could not
accept this absolute evil. This
had never happened before; (this
was) an enemy without precedent
in history.
Q: Do you think American
Jews did enough to try to rescue
European Jews?
A: Let me say, nobody did
enough. In such a situation, no-
body does enough. I didn't do
enough, nobody did .... I have
always insisted that we lost this
war. It is very difficult to admit
this. too. and nobody wants to. I
don't believe that just because
you fight you have to win TV.!
reality is that we Jews lost tk
war against Hitler, we suffenri.

EDITOR, The Jewish Floridian:
The following is a response to
Ms. Linda Davis' letter appear-
ing in the Friday, April 15. 1983
issue. i
In the United States we |
idealistically separate Church'
from State. In practice, we do,
just the opposite, i.e. bills before
Congress to return prayer to
schools; religious invocations
prior to most public meetings;
closing of schools for the Chris-'
tian holiday of Christmas.
We as Jews have two choices,
we can take the idealistic path
and seek to separate Church from
State. Or we can choose a second,
education of the public regarding
the dogmas and tenets of the
Jewish faith.
I prefer the second. Only
through knowledge can we expect
to change the isolation felt by
Jewish students in public
schools. Only through knowledge
can we demand equal time.

Johannsen admitted that she
joined the Nazi party but claimed
she knew little about it at the
time and that she never harmed
anyone. She acknowledged that
she once led a group of 250
women assigned to support the
German war effort by working in
a munitions factory.
The governing committee was
expected to determine Johan-
nsen's fate. Party sources say she
probably will be forced to resign.
One of the Green's founders,
August Haussleiter, was forced
to resign two years ago long
before the movement became an
active political faction after it
was learned that he was involved
in neo-Nazi groups.

We're 82 years oM,,
and we never looked younger!
We've come a long way
since we used to send
the horse and buggy
down to the Railroad
Station to pick up our
guests and boasted about
electricity in every room.
Prom the country place
that became the summer
refuge of those who
spent the other 50 weeks
of the year in crowded
city apartments, we"ve
grown into one of the
most pampering resorts
of the land.
Yet deep down we re-
main the same. A friendly,
welcoming stopping off
place where you can get
away from the tensions
and problems of day-to-
day living and discover
a new world of pleasure.
As we start our 9th
decade, and with a 5th
generation of hosts
warming in the wings,
we say to you just as
we've been saying these
last 82 years:
Come up to the Nevele.

Kosher Banquet
First Nazi Deported
U.S. Says He's Back in Germany
A kosher banquet. An honest-
to-gosh kosher banquet.

Bon Appetit, the renowned
restaurant at the Dunedin
marina, has designated one entire
kitchen as its kosher kitchen.
Supervision will be by Rabbi
Morris Kobrinetz of the Pinellas
County Board of Rabbis. He will
also supervise the purchasing.
"These completely separate
facilities leave no doubt as to the
kashrut of the meal. These men
have experience with kosher
parties in their former restaurant
in New Orleans and have great
experience with kosher banquet
management," said Rabbi Kobri-
By "these men" Rabbi Kobri-
netz refers to Peter W. Kreuziger,
president of European Manage-
ment Services, Inc. parent firm of
Bon Appetit Restaurant and his
partner. Chef Karl Riedl. They
bought the Bon Appetit Rest-
aurant and Jamaican Inn seven
years ago and are extremely
proud of their Mobil 4-star rating
for the past five years.
Kreuziger has spent this school
year commuting from his home in
Belleair to his alma mater,
Cornell University's School of
Hotel Administration in Ithaca,
New York to teach a course on
Principals of Management and to
conduct a Seminar on Hotel
"Looking for books on kosher
catering, I found one. A mono-
graph in the Cornell library by a
Cornell graduate student." Kreu-
ziger commented. He said that
while there are many kosher
cookbooks, books on commercial
kosher restaurantering are non-
The idea of offering completely
kosher parties and banquets
came from a friend who contacted
Kreuziger regarding his daught-
er's Bat Mitzvah party and they
wanted it kosher.
"We realized that no where in
the area was it possible to have a
kosher party, wedding reception
or banquet or what have you.
There are limited kosher catering
possibilities in your home, but
this is our beautiful private
dining room on the water.
"There has always been this
small kitchen off the private
dining room, but we did not use
it. It is much more economical to
work out of one central kitchen.
But when we were asked about a
kosher party, the idea came to
use this kitchen as our kosher
kitchen. We've purchased new
dishes and other items needed to
begin. The kitchen and large
equipment has all been koshered
by Rabbi Kobrinetz." Mr.
Kreuziger explained that they are
prepared to serve meat meals.
The private dining room of the
Bon Appetit is upstairs with a
view of the Gulf that resembles a
post card, it is so beautiful with
small islands dotting the waters.
There is an outdoor balcony
where weddings have been
performed. Often this balcony is
used as an area to serve hors

sources have verified that
Hans Lipschis, the first
Nazi war criminal to have
been deported in more than
30 years for concealing his
crimes, is now in West Ger-
many, according to Eli
Rosenbaum of the Justice
Department's Office of
Special Investigations
(OSI). Rosenbaum was one
of three OSI prosecutors in
the Lipschis case.
For some time, there had been
some question as to where
Lipschis went after he was or-
dered deported. He was
scheduled to leave the U.S. for
West Germany on Apr. 21, but
did not appear for the flight ar-
ranged by the OSI. His attorney,
Paul Zumbakis, that day formed
OSI acting director Neat Sher
that Lipschis had departed for
West Germany a week earlier.
This, however, could not be veri-
fied until late last week.
An admitted former SS-Rot-
ten fuehrer (Corporal) at the
Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp
complex, Lipschis on December
23, 1982 conceded charges
against him were not contested.
On that date, U.S. Immigration
Judge Anthony Pet rone ordered
Lipschis, a West German citizen,
deported there within 120 days.
Lipschis was born Antanas Lisys
in Kretinga, Lithuania on
November 7, 1919, and obtained
German citizenship in 1943.
THE OSI filed a deportation
suit against Lipschis, a per-
manent resident, on June 8, 1982
in U.S. Immigration Court,
Chicago. "It's a source of great
satisfaction that we were able to
complete this case within only 10
months from the time of filing,"
Rosenbaum said.

served from 1943 to 1945 in vari-
ous units of the SS-Totenkopf
Sturmbann (Death's Head Bat-
talion) at Auschwitz-Birkenau,
the OSI alleged that he per-
sonally participated in the per-
secution of civilians confined
there, and that he "ordered, in-
cited, assisted, or otherwise par-
ticipated in the persecution of
persons because of their race,
religion, national origin, or
political opinion."
According to OSI documenta-
tion, Lipschis was in 1946 "in-
cluded by the War Crimes Group,
Deputy Theatre Judge Advo-
cate's Office, United States
Forces European Theatre on a
'List of Perpetrators' of war
crimes" at Auschwitz, and his
"apprehension was sought by
U.S. authorities" from that date.
LIPSCHIS, a retired factory
worker, entered the U.S. on
August 15, 1956 and resided
since then in Chicago. He was
charged with "concealing and
misrepresenting "on his visa ap-
plication his activities at Ausch-
Sher said of Lipschis' deporta-
tion: "No longer can it be said
that the threat of deportation is
an idle one. Our investigations
continue; our prosecutions con-
tinue. Lipschis is the first to be
deported on war crimes charges,
but he won't be the last."
Commenting on the deporta-
tion of Lipschis, Rep. Peter
Rodino (D..N.J.), chairman of the
Howard B. Greenberg
House Judiciary Commitue,
it came at a "most fitting
