Littell, whose speech will
identify the Holocaust as a time
when a dividing line was drawn in
history between the "barbarism
of Nazy Germany and the future
of mankind," is a noted lecturer
who has spoken at more than 500
colleges in the United States,
Canada, Japan and Israel.
He has taught at several
seminaries and is a co-founder
and was first national chairman
of the Institute for American
Democracy, an organization
concerned with the threat of
extremism and terrorism.
In post-war Germany Littell
was for a time the chief
Protestant advisor to the U.S.
High Commissioner and while in
that country held several educa-
tional and religious offices. He
was named by Israeli appoint-
ment the only Christian member
of the International Council of
Yad Vashem (a Memorial to the
Holocaust in Jerusalem).
In a recent article Littell said
"the Holocaust confronts
Western civilization and repre-
sentative governments with a
crisis, intellectual and political,
to which responses have been
almost totally inadequate."
Littell is credited with en-
couraging a generation of
Christian theologians to re-think
the importance of the Holocaust
and Christian anti-Semitism.
In 1980 Dr. Littell received the
Jabot in sky Medal from then
Prime Minister Menachem Begin
for his work in promoting
Christian-Jewish understanding.
Dr. Juergensen, Holocaust
conference and Yom Hashoah
chairman stated: "We are indeed
fortunate to have Dr. Littell with
us for our day's activities."
Littell will also be the keynote
speaker at the Jewish community
evening observance, 8 p.m. at
Congregation Kol Ami. The com-
munity is urged to attend.

'Thousands of Years of Terrorism
[Ahead' for Israel, Shamir Predicts
TEL AVIV (UJA) Israel may have to face
[thousands of years" of terrorism, according to Premier
Titzhak Shamir who made this bleak assessment in a
fassover interview with Maariv.
But he added that terrorist attacks were not a serious
^ctor affecting Israel's life and development within the
ssent reality of the country.
HE SAID THAT following the destruction of the
rorist infrastructure in Lebanon, the capability of the
istine Liberation Organization to strike against Israel
low severely restricted.
Shamir stated: "One must know how to fight
rorism just as one must know how to fight all the sorts
prime from which we suffer. We may have thousands, or
scores of thousands, of years of terrorism before us.
rs must know how to live with the enemies and defend
lselves against them. Even when we have peace with
>ur Arab neighbors, I don't know if terrorism against
rill disappear from the world."
U.S. Secretary of Labor
During my visit to Israel

My week-long stay included
official meetings and visits, aa
well as personal tours of histor-
ical, cultural and religious sites. I
had opportunities to meet not
only with Israel's top political
and government officials, but
also with private citizens from all
walks of Israel's diverse society.
I LEFT that country with a
deeper understanding of what
Jerusalem means to Jews and
Christians alike. Visits to the
Yad Vashem Holocaust
Memorial, Nazareth, an Israeli
kibbutz, the ORT Vocational
Training Center at Hebrew
University, the headquarters of
Histadrut, Oik) Immigration
Absorption Center and many
others convinced me that I must

The Labor conference itself,
held in Jerusalem, proved to be a
stimulating and constructive
exchange of ideas on topics which
mutually concern the U.S. and
Israeli governments, as well aa
labor, management and
academia. Representatives of
these groups from both nations for new and rapidly changing
gained and shared many useful high-technology fields,
experiences in such fees as TRAINING IS but one
employment and training, oc- example of Israel's progress in
cupational safety and health and adapting its people, its traditions
and its institutions to the
requirements of a modern
labor-management relations.
Among the results of our
workshops and meetings was an
agreement by the Labor Depart-
ment and the Israeli Labor
Ministry to exchange visits next
year to study our respective
progress in providing vocational
training. Job training has long
been a national priority in Israel,
where even minimal unem-
ployment is considered unaccept-
able, and virtually all workers are
given access to skill training.
AFTER MANY years of
operating costly, but largely inef-
fective, national employment and
training programs, the U.S. has
only recently begun a large-scale
training effort to attack the root
causes of its longstanding struc-
tural unemployment problem.
Under the Reagan Administra-
tion's Job Training Partnership
Act, which took effect in October,
1983, the resources of the private
sector are being mustered to train
and employ up to one million
jobless Americans each year in
permanent, unsubsidized jobs.
In many ways, Israel is far
ahead of us in this kind of
cooperative government and
private-sector venture. We have
much to learn from the Israelis'
experience, particularly their
advanced role in training workers
national and global economy. In
its task of integrating and
assimilating the different
cultures and religions of its
population, Israel's struggles

So often a trip away from home
interesting but doesn't leave
you with the feeling that you
would like to return. Mayor Bob
Martinez was so enthusiastic
about his trip to Israel that he
and his wife. Mary Jane, would
love to return.
From March 31 to April 8.
Mayor Bob Martinez was part of
the 1984 Jerusalem Conference of
Mayors, hosted by Mayor Teddy
Kolleck of Jerusalem. The group
was sponsored by the American
Jewish Congress, and arrange-
ments were made through the
auspices of the Tampa Jewish
"The visual experience of being
in the Holy Land was great. The
image of the citrus trees tran-
sported me back to Florida and
made me feel right at home." said
As with many, he had pre-
conceived notions of what the
country would be like. As soon as
he left the airport these ideas
were quickly dispelled.
Martinez said. "My first
impressions of Tel Aviv and the
big city atmosphere, with the
tower cranes jutting over the
horizon, indicated the growth of
the area and were very
reminiscent of Tampa. I admire
the way there is a balance bet-
ween the new tomorrow and
preserving antiquity."
Mayor Martinez was parti-
cularly interested in the idea of
harnessing the country's limited
water supply and recycling the
Jordan River, since he had spent
five years on the Southwest
Florida Water Management
District board. He said, "I feel it
is astounding what Israel has
done with the arid land. Now
they are the bread basket feeding
the world."
The first three days were spent
in Jerusalem at seminars, dealing
with municipal governments, and
touring the city. On Monday,

terrorist attack in Jerusalem.

humanity in the spirit of brother-
This year's honorees are Lee

Martinez said the group ,,
inside a building about 500 yard,
away when it happened.
Martinez stated. "The imam.
ance of the continued unification
of Jerusalem was brought home
to me when I was told that the
West Bank could be seen b*
looking out of the window of the
building we were in. I saw that
the struggle was of neighbor
against neighbor within a few
blocks. I lost the conception of
war in the wide open spaces."
l^ro days were spent traveling
around the countryside, putting
places to names and adding net
meaning to their lives. The trip to
the Golan Heights impressed the
group with the facts of an enemy
breathing down their neck.
Speaking of a visit to a new
settlement, Ariel, Martinez said.
"this certainly gave me a broader
understanding of the need for
secure borders, as I watched
parents taking turns patrolling
and guarding their children.
"We shared Sabbath dinner
with a couple who had moved to
Israel. He was from Palm Beach,
Florida, and she was from the |
Netherlands. A lovely evening
was spent visiting," said Mar-
tinez. He said this reinforced the
idea of the country going from 1
melting pot to a salad bowl, with
individuals able to keep and
maintain their heritage.
"I especially enjoyed meeting
and speaking with the Israelis.
They are dynamic, energetic.
committed, and successful. I was
also intrigued with the idea thai
the students are multi-lingual.
and that by the time they
graduated from school they have
probably walked the whole
country with their teachers.
What a wonderful way to gain
knowledge and understanding of
one's homeland." reflected
One of the most memorable
moments of the trip came when
Mayor Martinez planted two
trees at the American Inde-
pendence Park. Two years ago he
had received the Jewish National
Fund "Tree of Life" award.
On Monday, at noon, the
Tampa Jewish leadership has
been invited to attend a luncheon
at the Jewish Community Center
to hear a first-hand account of
Mayor Martinez' trip to Israel.

UJA Schedules National Leadership
Conference For May 18-20 In Washington

Ambassador Meir Rosenne and
Rabbi Eugene B. Borowitz will
address the United Jewish
Appeal's Annual National
Leadership Conference in Wash-
ington, D.C. May 18-20, UJA
National Chairman Robert E.
Loup announced.
The Conference, to take place
at the Sheraton Washington
Hotel, will feature intensive
discussion of the vital needs and
issues underlying the UJA
Campaign and public presenta-
tion of the 1985 Campaign Plan.
"Implementation of the 1985
Campaign Plan by communities
will be an important statement of
American Jewry's readiness to
meet its responsibilities at home
and worldwide," Loup stated.
The National Leadership Con-
ference will open with a joint
plenary at which the UJA and
the Council of Jewish Federa-
tions will honor the American
Jewish Joint Distribution Com-
mittee on its 70th Anniversary.
Henry Taub, President of the
JDC, will present to the UJA and
CJF copies of a limited edition
replica of a Passover plate first
produced by Jews in the
Foehrenwald Displaced Persons
Camp in 1948. The JDC is a
Readers Write
Religious Clubs
in Public Schools
EDITOR. The Jewish Floridian:
The proposed Equal Access
Act (H.R. 5345) now before
Congress, if passed, would
require that religious clubs have
"equal access" to public school
facilities similar to that granted
to glee clubs. If a public school
district failed to implement such
a policy, upon the statue's
passage, it would be denied
federal funding.
The American Jewish
Congress opposes the Equal
Access Bill as an unwarranted
federal intrusion into local
control of education. We believe
that this Bill is unwise as a
matter of educational policy, and,
above all, unconstitutional. Some
school districts in Florida have
adopted rules prohibiting reli-
gious clubs from meeting in
public schools.
A number of officials believe
that denying such clubs access to
their schools is a sound educa-
tional policy. It avoids religious
divisiveness; circumvents the
risk of proselytizing with the
appearance of official approval;
and prohibits the free access of
religious cults to impressionable
Some of these issues are rooted
in peculiar local conditions. The
Equal Access Act, however,
leaves no discretion to school
administrators. It would require
school officials, regardless of
local circumstance, to permit
such clubs to function, even
where school officials believe this
to be educationally harmful.
Proponents of "equal access"
argue that the legislation is
necessary to insure that religion
is treated with the same respect
as other student dubs. This
argumen fails to recognize that
categorizing religious activity as
another offering in a smor-
gasbord of sports, hobbies, and
discussion groups permitted
during non-instructional time
only serves to demean religion
and deny its rightful mystery and
sacramental nature.
We should urge our congress-
ment to reject this beguiling, but
ill-conceived, legislation.

score major areas of concern
addressed by UJA campaign-
ing," explained Sanford L.
Hollander of Morris-Sussex,
Jersey, a UJA National Vice
Chairman and Chairman of the
National Conference Planning
Committee. "These concerns are
Jewish security and well-being
around the world and the rela-
tionship between Israel and the
Jews of the Diaspora."
Rabbi Borowitz, Professor of
Education and Jewish Religious
Thought at Hebrew Union
College-Jewish Institution of
Religion, will deliver the Louis A.
Pincus Memorial Lecture, an
honor the United Jewish Appeal

Jewish scholar each year.
Speaking on "A New Theology of
Israel and Diaspora," Borowitz

a rallying point for Jewish
consciousness. Previous Pincus
lecturers have included Elie
Wiesel, Abba Eban, Shimon
Peres, Dr. Yehuda Bauer and
Rabbi Yitzhak Greenberg.
The installation of Alexander
Grass of Harrisburg, Pa., as 1985
UJA National Chairman will take
place on Saturday morning. At
an earlier plenary, Mr. Grass will

The issues and needs of the 1985
Campaign will be addressed at
that session by Stanley B.
Horowitz, who became President
and chief professional officer of
UJA in December, 1983.
"Recognition of the extraord-
inary efforts of the 1984 leader-
ship team and the participation
of communities in the 1984
Campaign will comprise another
important segment of Conference
programming," Hollander
Among those being honored at
the Conference will be Robert E.
Loup of Denver, Colo., 1984 UJA
National Chairman, who will
assume the position of Chairman
of the Board of Trustees. During
his tenure, which included the
period of Operation Peace for
Galilee and the Israel Special
Fund, Loup led the UJA to a
fundraising achievement of over
$600 million in 1983 and, in 1984,
to what will be the greatest
peacetime fundraising accom-
plishment in UJA history.
Also to be honored is Herschel
W. Blumberg of Washington,
D.C, outgoing Chairman of the
UJA Board of Trustees, who
served as UJA National
Chairman from 1980-82.

MDA Responds To PLO
Terrorist Attack
TEL AVIV Magen David
Adorn was alerted immediately
following the attack of four PLO
terrorists who hijacked an Egged
bus on the Ashdod-Ashkelon
highway, threatening to blow up
the bus and all its passengers,
men, women and children, should
their demand for the release of
PLO prisoners in Israeli hands
not be met.
A few minutes after the bus
was finally stopped at Burge, a
small Arab village on the Gaza
strip, a fleet of 20 MDA Ambul-
ances and two Mobile First Aid
Stations, plus 50 professional
staff members and volunteers
from the MDA Negev and Hash-
efela Stations arrived on the
scene, encircling the bus at close
range in cooperation with the
IDF Medical Corps Units. The
MDA Units operated under the
command of Amizur Kfir,
Director General of MDA and
Itzhak Paz, MDA Negev Region
After eight hours of negotia-
tions to stall any terrorist action,
IDF Special Commandoes
stormed the vehicle releasing the
passengers, including eight
wounded, one of them critically.
The MDA Ambulances
evacuated the wounded to an air-
force helipad where choppers
brought the injured to the Tel
Hashomer Hospital landing site,
and another fleet of MDA Am-
bulances transferred the
wounded to the hospital's
emergency facilities.

National Suicide Prevention
Week and May is National
Mental Health Month. May is
also traditionally the highest
month for the number of suicides
in the United States.
A recent survey (April 1984
Psychology Today) shows that
one of every 10 schoolchildren
attempts suicide. Over 80 percent
of those who attempt suicide give
repeated warnings yet we have no
program for educating the public
about warning signs and how to
respond to these cries for help.
Your help with community
education will save lives!
Our Center has qualified per-

suicide or crisis that would be
appropriate for your listening or

Did Jews Really Go
To Their Demise Like
Lambs to Slaughter?
Yom Haahoah. Martyrs and Heroes Remembrance Day,
fails this year on Sunday, April 29. The day recalls the
infamous period of the Hitler Holocaust and its impact,
not only on the six-million victims, but on Jews
throughout the world
The period of the Euro-
pean Holocast causes some
Jews, especially among the
younger generation, fed-1
ings of uneasiness and even
of guilt. The question has
often been asked: Why did
the Jews go as lambs to the
slaughter instead of put-
ting up resistance? The
question has only one
answer: whoever asks it
shows ignorance and a lack
of understanding of what
actually happened in
Europe during the Second
World War.
Today, m retrospect, we are
beginning land only beginning)
to grasp the power of forces of
evil at work then. At the time,
however, nobody in his wildest
dreams could have imagined that
human beings were capable of
what the Germans did.
However, the post-Auschwitz
world, far from faultless as it cer-
tainly is. does not resemble the
world before the gas chambers
and concentration camps. A new
dimension of man's degradation
now accompanies us from here to
eternity. We often experience a
sense of insecurity and uncer-
tainty out of fear of the possibil-
ity that what happened may
recur against the Jewish people
and other human groups.
BUT TO return to the question
why the Jews did not revolt. The
answer is clear. During the
Second World War. the Germans
killed over 20 million people of
vanus nationalities. We heard
hardly anything of revolt from
them. Apparently, it was made
almost impossible to resist phy-
sically, and if this was true of the
Gentiles who dwelt in their own
countries and possessed armies
and armaments, it was even truer
of the Jews.
The Jews, after all. constituted
a minority and to a large extent
alien element in the countries of
Europe. These are the objective
facts, and there is no point in suf-
fering from feelings of guilt or
even shame just because there
were no Davids to fight the
German Goliath. David in his
time fought in his own country,
using a sling and stones as
The revolts in the Warsaw and
other ghettos against insuperable
odds arouse the admiration of
freedom-lovers all over the world.
It was the faith and conviction of
the Jewish resistance which
fcjsjj them to make Warsaw
ghetto into a symbol of heroism
for all times.
A BASIC law of sociology
states that a minority tries to
resemble the majority among
which it lives as far as life-style
and even ways of thinking and
cultural values are concerned
This is also true of the Jews, es-
pedaOy since they had broken
out of the ghetto walls and
become members of the western
world's open society.
Yet in this "civilized" world,
heroism and physical bravery are
often thought to be indentical.
People are brought up on this
conception and are prepared to
shed their own and others' blood
in its name. It would appear that
many Jews who were brought up
on western culture also conceive
heioiani in its physical sense
alone. It is therefore obvious why
some Jews feel ill at ease becase
other Jews were hardly able to
brace their muscles against the
In contrast to this concept, it
should be stated very clearly that
the Jewish idea of heroism is not
a physical one only but mainly a
spiritual and mental one. as the
Prophet said: 'Not by might, nor
by power, but by my spirit .
(Zechariah. 4.61. The fact that the
Jewish people has not disap-
peared from the world is not due
to its physical courage on the
contrary, we have suffered one
military defeat after another in

This free workshop, which is
sponsored by Communications
Equity, is being offered in con-
junction with the exhibition of
Marcel Duchamp, the conceptual
artist who, in 1915, coined the
term "Readymade" to describe
ordinary objects elevated to the
status of art. Several of
Duchamp's Readymades are on
exhibit at The Tampa Museum,
including a coatrack nailed to the
floor and a vial of "Air of Paris."
Duchamp's work is noted for its
eccentricity and wit.
An authority on early
Christianity, Professor Robert
Michael of Southeastern Massa-
chusetts University, traces the
genesis of virulent anti-Semitism
and its "Final Solution" Holo-
caust climacteric, to the founding
Church Fathers. In his essay
"Christian Theology and the
Holocaust," in Midstream's
April issue, Prof. Michael writes:
"Nowhere among the Greeks and
Romans do we find the elemental
hatred of the Jews that we find
first and foremost among
Christian writers."
Beginning with the Christian
Scriptures, he cites Paul, the
Gospels, Acts and Revelations
and the Church Fathers of the
Patristic Period as the distorters
of Jewish ethics and history into
"a diabolic myth, transforming
spiritual strengths into crimes
against God and man."
Dr. Michael says: "Talmud,
Tor ah, synagogue, peoplehood,
religious mission, and the one
spiritual God the very heart
and soul of Judaism were
thrown back into the faces of
Jews. This fictitious, transvalued
Judaism was then used to justify
anti-Jewish Church laws and
Church-inspired secular laws,
policies and actions."
This continued in the Middle
Ages with its fatal toll of hun-
dreds of thousands of Jews.
Because of Martin Luther's
hate-filled libels this mytho-
logical image of the Jews
remained unchanged by the
Protestant Reformation. This
mythology, remained as the basis
for the Nazi onslaught." Hitler
referred in conversations admir-
ingly to Aquinas' and Luther's
brands of anti-Semitism.
In 1938, he said to Hans
Frank, "In the Gospels the Jews
called out. 'His blood be upon
us, and our children's children!'
Perhaps I have to fulfill this

Concerning the Goldberg Com-
mission's Report on the ineffec-
tiveness of American Jewish
efforts to save Jewish lives, it is
worth noting Prof. Michael's
comment that "the power of
theological myth also helps
explain the mixture of indif-
ference and hostility that was the
predominant Allied reaction to
the Nazi murder of the Jews."
Prof. Michael concludes with a
note of hope tempered by war-
ning: "Perhaps the future holds
hope for better relations between
Christians and Jews. There are
thousands of ecumenists working
toward this goal. But the World's
passionate antagonism toward
Israel makes one wonder how
much of it is simply displaced
mythological anti-Semitism."
New Year's Eve In A Rain Forest
Offered In USF Holidays Tour
How would you like to cele-
brate New Year's Eve in
Palenque, surrounded by the
remote rain forets of southern
Mexico, near ruins of the ancient
Mayan civilization?
Palenque will be one of the
highlights of the University of
South Florida's Christmas holi-
days tour to Mexico in December-
January, 1984-86.
Led by Dr. Amy Sparks, pro-
fessor of humanities and expert
in Hispanic culture, the 12-day
tour will provide six hours of
college credit or may be taken on
a non-credit basis.
Sparks says now is the time to
make plans for such a tour to be
assured of a space, which may be
held for a $50 returnable deposit.
Tour members wfli spend
several days in Mexico City for
visits to the archaeological
museum and restored ancient
Aztec cities in preparation for
visits to pre-Columbian and
colonial sites.
Among the cities included will
be Teotihuacan, Villahermosa,
Mitla and Oaxaca. The Oaxaca
area is surrounded by villages
where direct descendants of
Mexico's original Indians still
carry out weaving and ceramic
crafts and preparation of herbs.
"The tour sold out last year
and many applicants had to be
turned away," Sparks said. "The
expected price will be between
$700 and $800."

Druckman, a political hawk who
broke away from the NRP last

The combination of Burg, a

anomalous by political observers.

David Levy has been entrusted

with the task of "examining" the
Herut-Liberal agreement. It was
concluded in the mid-sixt s be-
tween then Herat leader
Menachem Begin and the late
Simcha Ehrlich, leader of the
Liberal Party.
Nissim and other Liberal leaders
are firmly united in opposition to
any changes Levy might
recommend. Denying that the
Liberal Party has a dispro-
portionately high representation
in the Knesset, they point out
that neither the Liberals nor
Herat has been tested separately
at the polls for two decades.
Energy Minister Yitzhak
Modai informed Premier Yitzhak
Shamir that the Liberals refuse
to renegotiate their agreement
with Herat before the elections.
Nissim said that Modai's
meeting with Shamir was un-
called for because the Liberal
Party Presidium had already
ruled out any dialogue over
Herat's demands.
Nissim and Modai are both
contending for leadership of the
Liberal Party. Another candidate
is Knesset Speaker Menachem
Savidor. That issue will be
decided when the Liberal Party's
Central Committee meets on
April 26.

Ghetto Fighters9Kibbutz
Monument to Hitler Survivors
Prominent on Israel's
coastal plain on the road
from Acre to Nahariya, the
Holocaust and Resistance
Museum serves as a monu-
ment to the suffering of
survivors of Hitler's
Europe, who came to
Galilee to build a better
future. It was established
simultaneously with Loh-
mei HaGetaot, the Ghetto
Fighters' Kibbutz, on
which it stands, on April
19, 1949, the sixth anni-
versary of the Warsaw
Ghetto uprising.
"The people who established
the Ghetto Fighters' Kibbutz had
two messages to convey," says
kibbutz member Gezi Kaplan.
"To ensure that the Jewish
resistance and the Holocaust
were not forgotten and to show
the world that people who
emerged from that hell could
develop a settlement and build a
THE MUSEUM, which is
visited by about a quarter of a
million people annually, has one
of the world's largest archives of
Holocaust materials. It includes
some 40,000 photographs, 240
films, many of which were taken
by the Nazis, and a 60,000
volume library. In addition, it
has published 140 books and has
made two full-length films about
the resistance and the flight from
Hitler's Europe.
Because of the expense of
maintaining and developing the
museum, it has been turned into
a national project. Half of the
responsibility still remains in the
hands of the kibbutz, and ten
members of Lohamei HaGetaot
still hold key staff posts. The
central institution comme-
morating the Holocaust and
Jewish resistance is at Yad
Vashem in Jerusalem. That in the
southern kibbutz of Yad Mor
dechai is named after Mordechai
Anielewitz, commander of the'
Warsaw Ghetto revolt.
The Lohamei HaGetaot
museum recently started an eight
volume series of testimony by 96
kibbutz members who went
through the Holocaust. "Much of
the information in the series has
not even bean related to their
children," says Kaplan. "Because
even though they put up the
museum many of the older
members preferred to concentrate
on the future, rather than
dwelling on the past. Also, the
emphasis here was on the resist-
ance and not the horrors."
OF THE 270 members of the
kibbutz, more than half were
born after the Holocaust. Many
of them, like Kaplan, had no
connection with it. "I came
through my youth movement.
Dror. along with a group of other
Israeli youngsters, 15 years ago."
he smiles. "We were all depressed
about the prospect both because
we wanted to go to a new kibbutz
and because of the name. We
thought that any place called
'Ghetto Fighters' had to be a
kibbutz where people lived in the
past and no one smiled. Instead,
we found a warm, friendly atmos-
phere, where people knew how to
enjoy themselves and how to
receive newcomers."
Like many other Galilee
kibbutzim, Lohamei HaGetaot is
now financially successful Each
family has at least a three-room
dwelling with a television. It
grows cotton, tomatoes, sweet
corn, wheat, avocado and citrus.
In addition, it has a very profit-
able livestock branch, with 900
head of cattle, a large poultry run
and fish ponds. Its only factory
produces electric capacitors for
the Israeli and exports markets.
However, it does not export to or
import from Germany, in accord-
ance with a decision taken many
years ago by the membership.
Gezi cannot point to any
special problems the Holocaust
has caused to members' children.
However, he thinks that it might
have made some of the old timers
more conscious of their children's
needs and desires. "Other than
that, we are a kibbutz like any
other. Our educational system is
standard." -

ONE POSSIBLE indicator of a
bond between parents and
children is that 60 percent of the
sons and daughters of the kib-
butz return there to live after
their army service. This is some-
what higher than the average for
Another possible result, ac-
cording to Kaplan, is a sub-
conscious preoccupation with the
Holocaust. "In the kibbutz, you
will hear jokes about the
Holocaust, which I see as an
attempt to reject or block out the
"At the same time, the
members seem to read an inord-
inate amount about Nazi Ger-
many ... I believe the name of
the kibbutz, the group that
founded it and the museum have
placed a certain responsibility on
the members to continue to
research and educate the Israeli
population about the Holocaust.
And the fact that the younger
members of the kibbutz approved
the publishing of the testimony
series on the Holocaust is an
indication that they will do so."
If the people of Lohamei
T f
Survivors of the Hitler Holocaust are shown, still in tk
concentration camp uniforms, as they arrived in Israel in IS
HaGetaot set out to prove that
Holocaust survivors could build a
new society, their kibbutz is
evidence if their acheivement. As
for their museum, it is both an
important educational
ment and a symbol of the cob
tion between the past,
present and the future in conti
porary Jewish life.
Did Jews Really Succumb Quietly?

Western world. Ours was a
spiritual greatness. There is no
better proof of the victory of the
spiritual over the material than
the irrefutable fact that while
most of these mighty kingdoms
and powers have vanished, Israel
continues to exist.
No effort was spared by Jews
to continue the observation of
religious precepts under German
rule, to keep the sabbath as com-
manded, to refrain from forbid-
den foods, to hold prayers on the
holy days, to blow the shofar and
eat matzot. All this actually went
on at the time of the Holocast in
all the camps.
It was this spiritual heroism
that existed in the dark years of
the Holocaust. Despite the hor-
rifying conditions resulting from
the Nazis' crimes in the labor
camps, ghettos and concentra-
tion camps, the Jews rabbis
and leaders as well as the
common people preserved the
image of human beings. This was
true heroism and it is this type of
heroism that we must stress.
ONE IS amazed to read docu-
ments written underground
which reveal the Jewish spirt
all its splendor. Wonderful maul

leadership frequently encouragi
the Jewish people at the fatef
