shrine to six million mar-
tyred Jews of the Holo-
caust. Leading up to the
Memorial, a tree-lined path,
the Avenue of the
Righteous Gentiles honors
those heroic non-Jews who
saved Jewish lives at the
risk of their own. One of the
trees of this avenue honors
Jeanne Daman Scaglione,
who was given the Yad

Government of Israel.
Jeanne Daman-Scaglione will
be the guest speaker at a recep-

Division of the Jewish Fed-

campaign, Monday, April 17. The
reception will be held at Temple
Beth El in Boca Raton, beginning
at 6 p.m. with a cocktail buffet.
MRS. Daman-Scaglione was
raised in Belgium as a Roman
Catholic. In 1942, at the start of
Hitler's persecution of the Jews,
she became the headmistress of

The experience of being an
Cabinet in Unanimous Support
The Cabinet last week unan-
imously approved reports by
Prime Minister Menachem Begin
and Foreign Minister Moshe
Dayan on their Washington visit
and on their presentation of the
Israeli position in the talks with
President Carter.
A communique issued after a
four-hour political debate indi-
cated no specific new concessions
NAOR SAID the Cabinet
would be taking a "number of
initiatives" designed to "advance
the resumption of negotiations
with Egypt." One of these will be

President Anwar Sadat's last
letter to him, received just before
he left for Washington. There
by Israel. But the communique
pointedly referred to the Israeli
peace plan as a "fair basis" for
negotiation, deliberately using
the wording which Carter himself
has consistently used.
CABINET Secretary Arye
Naor said he would "not
pretend" that there had been a
change of situation since last
week, when Begin had publicly
declared that certain demands
made by the U.S. were unaccept-
able by Israel.
But he pointed out that the
Cabinet communique was
phrased "without any negatives"
Israel wanted

and added
Egypt to come
Israel did not see its peace plan
as a diktat, Naor said, but as a
basis on which to proceed with
substantive negotiations. The
time "has not come yet for
changes" in the Israeli plan, he
said. Such time would only come
if an when substantive nego-
tiations were entered upon.
would be other initiatives, too,
Naor pledge, "but publication
would ruin them."
Naor admitted that the Israeli
Cabinet could be said to have
responded to Carter's appeal for
"reconsideration" mainly in the
literal sense of having recon-
sidered in detail all the aspects of
the Israeli peace plan and the
political situation.
SPEAKING FOR the Cabinet
Naor blasted reported efforts by
U.S. officials to "meddle" in
Israeli politics by airing the wish
for a change of Prime Minister.
"Ministers expressed their
disdain at this," Naor said.
Ministers, and particularly

eyewitness to the Jewish tragedy
led her to join the Underground
Movement in its dangerous
struggle against the invader. Due
to the courage and compassion of
people like Mrs. Daman-Scag-
lione 10,000 adults and 2,000
children in Belgium were hidden
and saved from the Nazi terror.
Members of her family were
caught and paid a heavy price for
their participation in this
struggle between civilization and
barbarism. Her uncle lost his life,
as a political prisoner in
Mauthausen concentration camp,
and her cousin was incarcerated
for two years in Ravensbruck.
UPON Belgium's liberation
she resumed her work in edu-
cation, helping in the rehab-
ilitation of Jewish youngsters
who had survived the camps.
She now lives in the United
States with her husband, Prof.
Aldo Scaglione, who also fought
the Nazis in the Italian Partisan
Army during the war and is a
professor of comparative lit-
erature at the University of
North Carolina and Chapel Hill.
Drs. Carl Enselberg and
Gerald Robinson are the co-chair-
men for South County's 1978

The original
Declaration of I
There was a time in history when
Man's right to independent worship
went unrecognized.
But,2145 years ago,an event
occurred that firmly established the
principle in the consciousness of Man.
In the year 167 B.C.E.,the first
war in history was fought to preserve a
peoples'way of life: their laws ;stand-
ards of morality ;and above all,the reli-
gion revealed to them in the wilderness
of Sinai more than a thousand years
The Jewish people led by the Mac-
cabees.fough t to break the religious
tyranny of the Assyrian-Greek conquer-
ors of ancient Judea who threatened
the very survival of the Jewish way of
The M accabees and their followers
struggled not for personal gain,and
broader influence.but to preserve the
Jewish Faith.
Their ultimate victory was a tri-
umph of justice and human
brought to humanity's attention an
ideal that transcends life itself.
Chanukah is the Jewish Festival
that commemorates that victory.For
eight nights, commencing with the 25th
day of Kislev.a candle is lit in every
Jewish home. As the candle burns,it
gives hope that the faith of the Jews
will one day serve to banish tyranny
and oppression from the earth.
It is a yearly recurring declara-
tion of mankind's independence.a mem-
orable reassertion of the God-given
right of human beings to live and wor-
ship in freedom.
. Chanukah is called the Festival of
L-ights.It is the
pure light of freedom that glows in the
heart of Man.
It's what makes us Jews.

Spotlight on Petrodiplomacy
Drew Middleton. the Xeu York Timesman. writes in
;i current report that Israel's air installations in the Sinai
Peninsula, one of which is so sophisticated that it cost in
excess of $4 billion to construct, are being heavily used
these days by I S. ;ur raconaissanos units in surveillance
activity against the Soviet Union.
Simply, because the Soviet expansion into Africa is a
cruel and obscene joke at the same time that the Carter
administration is negotiating with the Soviets on SALT
agreements and at the same time that we are engaged with
the Soviets in human rights debate at Belgrade.
Also, because the Soviet Union's increasing grip on
the Horn of Africa more and more openly endangers our
oil routes from abroad.
In the eyes of the Pentagon, this reconnaissance is
indispensable to our security.
Meanwhile. President Carter and the anti-Israel State
Department is applying unbearable pressure (despite their
feeble denials) on Israel not only to give up the air instal-
lations, but all of the Sinai.
One wonders why there are such divisive and. indeed,
suicidal impulses in American political life.
What the Middleton report comes down to is a spot-
light on petrodiplomacy Pentagon or State Department
While growing American sentiment is to back Israel
into a corner, or even off the world map. there are some
circles in Washington that continue to regard Israel's
presence in the Middle East as an adjunct to our security
not. as many want us to see it now. a liability or even
cause to question the loyalty of those who dare to continue
to support Israeli survival.
Good-Bye, Mayshie
All of us will miss Mayshie Friedberg. who died last
week at the age of 95.
. There was not a function in behalf of some Jewish
cause that would fail to bring out the commanding May-
shie Friedberg presence white-bearded like some ancient
Hebrew Patriarch, his beret disarmingly cocked atop his
silver head, walking up and down the aisles among tables,
in and out of the aisles of auditoriums, his pockets jam-
med with pledge cards, pleading for support for Israel.
Mayshie devoted himself to Federation, to Bonds, to
Histadrut. to Farband. to Hebrew University, to Tech-
nion. to the Jewish National Fund. One can go on and on.
No male chauvinist. Mayshie also shook hands, ca-
joled and weedled support for Israel in the cause of Ha-
dassah and other women's organization-
The community will be saying good-bye to Mayshie
Friedberg at a special memorial service on Miami Beach
on Sunday afternoon.
Those present will not be mourning him. They will see
him once again white-bearded patriarch, his beret
dislarmingly cocked atop his silver hair, shaking hands,
cajoling and weedling. his pockets jammed with pledge
cards for one cause: Israel.

Points to Mention When
Writing Representatives
The Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County urges that
the following points to be mentioned when writing rep-
resentatives in Washington:
1. Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East.
2. The American people support Israel totally.
3. The President is mistaken in pressuring Israel to make
concessions to Arab extremists.
4. Israel stands as a bulwark against the influence of the
Soviet Union in the Middle East.
5. The President should do something to demonstrate his
support of Israel. A good gesture would be to move the U.S.
Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
6. Congress should continue to appropriate all necessary
funds for arms and economic support for Israel.

EDITOR, The Jewish Floridian:
I read with great interest your
article, "Pat Boone Insists He is
Jewish." I wish to enlighten him
that the only difference between a
Jew and a Christian is that the
Jewish people are still waiting for
the Messiah and the Christians
have found their Christ or
Messiah, whom they call Jesus.
One can only be a Jew or a Chris-
tian, but not both. The same is
true for Jews for Jesus. This is a
mistake which should be
We admire your interest in
Jewish matters and the human-
itarian efforts of your family.
This will make you all better
Christians and better people, but
you are not Jews. The only way
you can become Jews is to
convert to Judaism by authority
of a rabbi. Speaking Hebrew,
working on Israeli kibbutzim,
learning about our ancient
heritage, and celebrating
Chanukah and other Jewish fes-
tivals is very praiseworthy, but
Christianity is not a Jewish
religion and not a branch of
Judaism. We respect your sin-
cerity and good-will, but this

Need to Maintain Control Over Bank
Prime Minister Menachem
Begin of Israel reaffirmed
his government's position
on territories and settle-
ments and approaches to
peace and, in his address to
the National Press Club
and in responses to re-
porters' questions in a tone
of conciliation, expressed
his hope for an understand-
ing in the United States of
Israel's security require-
Bgia spoke before a tense but
enthusiastic audience that over-
flowed the ballroom of the
National Puss Club while the
world media was proclaiming
that he and President Carter
have tailed to bridge gaps to
tvsolv e the Middle Kast problems
and while rumors spread that the
Carter Administration was
determined to bring about his
ousict as Israel's lender through
a massive propaganda effort
because he is unbending on
Israel's position.
BEGIN'S address and his
response to questions reasserted
Israel's need to maintain military
control over Judaea. Samaria and
the Gaza Strip, the right to have
Jewish settlements in those
areas, and complete negation of
the "so-called Palestine Lib-
eration Organization."
But in his words and in his
manner he sought to conciliate
rather than to aggravate in any
wav either the relations with
Carter or with Egyptian Presi-
dent Anwar Sadat.
His presentation was generally
viewed here as contrasting with
the toughness of the speech that
Sadat fired at Israel and Begin
when he spoke from the same
rostrum on Feb. 6.
BEGIN SAID that his pro-
posals for a settlement rep-
resented good and tested con-
cepts that are irrefutable and
repeated what he said was wide-
spread approval of them when

HE ADDED: "It is a sad com-
mentary on the situation that the
President of the United States
has spent more time seeking a
solution to the Middle East con-
flict than the President of Egypt.
Sixty years of Arab-Jewish
conflict since the Halfour Decla-
ration deserve more than 36
hours of negotiation from Pres-
ident Sadat." Dinitz told 500
convention delegates from all
net ions of the country.
Ambassador Dinitz said news
preports of Prime Minister Be
gin's visit to Washington had
"tended to create an inaccurate
impression about Israeli posi-
tions on a number of key points.
"For the sake of truth and fair-
ness." he said, it should be made
clear that "Israel has taken grave
risks for peace in offering a com-
prehensive peace plan based on
the return to Egyptian sover-
eignty of the entire Sinai in-
cluding security arrangements
along a narrow belt under UN su-
pervision comprising less than 3
percent of the peninsula and
for self-rule for the Palestinian
Arabs, granting them compplete
autonomy except for the right to
conduct war and terrorism
against Israel.
welcomed by President Carter as
a long step forward' and as rep-
resent injt a rreat measure of
flexibility.' They are the only
peace plans that have been put on
the table to date. Egypt offered
no peace plan of its own, and Jor-
dan has not even come to the ne-
gotiating table."
Dinitz insisted that Israel has
not gone back on her acceptance
of Security Council Resolution
242. "Indeed, Prime Minister Be-
gin made clear during his visit in
Washington that Israel accepts
all of the principles of 242 as a
basis for negotiations with the
Arab states concerned.

answering newsmen's
estions during a visit to

fea, Weizman said he honestly
I not know" when he would go,
nothing is imminent."
The questions followed a spate
of press reports Monday and a
welter of speculation that
Weizman would go to Cairo in the
next day or two.
THE BEST opinion seems to
be that he will indeed make ef-
forts to go shortly to renew the
contacts which he himself has
recently said have been allowed
unnecessarily to lapse.
He told a press interviewer at
the weekend that he personally
was still maintaining contact
with (iamasy.
It can hardly be in the in-
terest of any country concerned
with Middle Kast peace to
demand that Israel commit itself
to accepting the future role of
IM.O extremists in the area. Can
such a plan really be pn-fer-ed to
the solution that can come out of
negotiations and talks among the
Palestinian Arabs, with Jordan
and Egypt and ourselves?
Israel's position on the settle-
ments has leen equally distorted
and misunderstood. The llcgin
government has not established a
single new settlement in the Sinai
and dot's not intend to do so.
Egypt is the one Arab
country which has sat at the

What are we doing to ourselves? We ride to work. Sit behind
desks. Ride home. Sit at the table and eat like crazy. Then sit
on that.
And we pay for it. With increasingly costly health care. And
shortened lives.
One of the best things we can do for ourselves is exercise.
And some of the best exercise costs absolutely nothing. Requires
no special training or equipment. And takes no more skill than
putting one foot in front of the other.
Take a walk. Today, and every day. It's good exercise in
itself. Or a good way to work up to a more
strenuous program.
In the long run, keeping in
shape can help save you money in
health care. And it can help save you. Birmingham, Alabama

This is a Free Country
By Rabbi Max L. Formao
Often when we are called to
task for acting or speaking
thoughtlessly, hastily, or
selfishly, we interject into the
argument, in self-defense, the
phrase "This is a free country,
isn't it?' I should like to suggest
that it is most important that we
draw from this truth more than
the implication that we are per-
mitted, therefore, to act as we
will and speak as we please.
"This is a free country' means
that all other men are entitled to
that freedom which I claim for
myself. Since I am a free man, I
am constrained to defend the
freedom of my fellow-men when it
is endangered, and to help secure
it when it is denied. This may
involve a good deal of effort,
inconvenience, and even sac-
rifiece; but as a free man, I have
no other choice.
THIS IS a free country'
means that since no outside force j
controls my speech, I must pos- I
sess an inner sense of respon- I
sibility which keeps me from
speaking careless, unfounded,
slanderous, or divisive words
|# T,ME #|
29 ADAR 2-5738 '
else freedom will deteriorate into
"This is a free country' means
that I have the obligation to be
informed about current issues:
those domestic and international
problems with which my country
is concerned. As a citizen, I have
a share in making the decisions
that have to be made. Ignorance
and indifference can only lead to
thoughtless or mistaken views on
my part. Multiply this by a suf-
ficient number of other citizens
and it may result in decisions
inimical to the interests of our
country and disruptive of world
'This is a free country' means
that I must play my part in the
voluntary associations in which
free men band together to ad-
vance common ideals, defend
common causes, reflect common
concerns, and present common
points of view. The life of free
men is not, and cannot be, cir-
cumscribed by governmental
control and authority.
SYNAGOGUES and churches,
labor unions and professional
societies, philanthropic agencies,
social groups and political
parties, together with ever so
many other enterprises serve to
enhance the moral, cultural, and
social climate of the land. They
deserve the participation of all
citizens interested in a richer life
for all America.
"This is a free country' means
that as a free man I must exercise
my freedom to guard zealously
my individuality and my right to
independent judgment, lest they
dissolve under the constant pres-
sures making for conformity,
which can only lead to surrender
to appeals for mass-thinking and
'This is a free country' means
that I am blessed with many
rights and opportunities, this
means, too, that I must be ready
and eager to assume and dis-
charge serious responsibilities
and solemn obligations. To dis-
dain the latter can lead to the loss
of the former.

Hertzberg Cautions U.& Against
Doom, Gloom Scenario
Arthur Hertzberg. outgoing
president of the American Jewish
Congress, has cautioned against
the "gloom and doom scenario"
of future U.S.-Israeli relations
following the failure of President
Carter and Prime Minister Mena-
chem Begin to resolve their dif-
ferences at their talks in
"At the same time," he said,
"it would be false optimism not
to concede that American Jews
feel a growing sense of worry and
dismay at the current trend of
U.S. policy in the Middle East."
SPEAKING to 500 delegates
at the AJCongress' national
biennial convention here in what
was his valedictory address as
president of the organization.
Hertzberg voiced optimism over
the future of American-Israeli
relations and the continuity of
Jewish identity in the U.S.
"Israel's security is an
essential element of American
security." he said. President
tarter understands that and
so does Prime Minister Begin
whatever the differences, they
are about tactics on how best to
achieve Middle East peace
THERE IS no reason, Hertz-
berg said, "for any gloom and
doom scenario that forecasts a
rupture of U.S.-Israel relations. |
All parties to the Middle East'
conflict need to get pest rhetoric
and the battle over formulations'
and return to the negotiating
table and the long hard process of
dealing with concrete issues and
specific arrangements." he said.
However, Hertzberg added.
At the same time, it would be
false optimism not to concede
that American Jews feel a
growing sense of worry and
dismay at the current trend of
U.S. policy in the Middle East as
evidenced by the linking of
American military aid for Israel
with arms sales to Egypt and
Saudi Arabia: criticism of
Israel's positions coupled with
praise for President Sadat: and
the American role in the United
Nations resolution calling on
international peace forces to

Six Million Murdered
There is no way to establish an accurate figure tor the total number ot Jews murdered in World

killed by the Nazis, representing two-thirds ot the pre-war European Jewish population.

"Holocaust," a nine and
one-half-hour dramatic story of
the annihilation of six million
Jews by the Nazis, will be
shown over the NBC television
network for four nights
beginning Sunday, April 16.
Written by novelist Gerald
Green, "Holocaust" will
cover the years from 1935,

The Third Reich, created amid
boasts that it would endure for a
thousand years, lasted instead
twelve years and four months,
from January 1933 until April
1945. During that time more
than 29 million persons were
kilted six million of them
Jews, slaughtered because they
were Jewish.
To claim that their
extermination at the hands of
the Nazis was a greater tragedy
man what has befallen other
persecuted peoples is unfeeling
and fruitless, ft is the
uniqueness of their annihilation
that is historically significant.
ft is important that we
understand that awesome and
terrible event so that we can
better comprehend the
differences between good and
evil and what our moral
choices are.

pages a pictorial and news
summary of the Holocaust with
suggestions for study,
discussion and further reading. It
is our hope that The Record will
be used by schools and

The Crime We Cannot
Neglect or Forget

by Barton M. Joseph,
National Chairman.
Anti-Defamation League
of B'nai B'rith
The Nazi crime of genocide,
in which six million Jews were
killed, is history that we can
neglect or forget only at our
peril. Yet, perhaps because we
cannot readily grasp or
emotionally accept the carefully
planned and systematic murder
of millions, The Holocaust is
largely forgotten or regarded
with apathy. Unfortunately,
most history and social studies
textbooks treat this subject
inadequately, and it is absent
from most classroom
discussion. In Europe and, to a
lesser extent, in the United
States we are beginning to
witness the appearance of
revisionist books that
shamefully declare The
Holocaust a myth.
Except among the most
hopelessly bigoted, NBC's
series will dispel the notion of
any myth. Here is Hitler's
appalling crime against
humanity, in all of its stark
visual truth. Here is the
ultimate meaning of hatred put
into the service of ideology.
Here is the efficiency of modern
technology corrupted into the
ghastly forms of gas chamber
and crematoria. The Holocaust
may not be mankind's first
experience with genocide, but
it is by far the most horrendous.
Sadly, it may not be our last.
We have an obligation to
ourselves and future
generations. Our obligation is
to make the lessons of The
Holocaust a part of the human
mind and spirit. That is the goal
of the Anti-Defamation League
of B'nai B'rith. NBC has made
a magnificent contribution to
that education a con-
tribution whose value will
continue far into the future.
The Organized
Destruction of
European Jewry
Two developments were in-
tertwined in the Nazi assault on
the Jews. One was a German
administrative process evolving
from ponderously slow
beginnings to massive climax,
the other a progressive en-
feeblement of the Jewish
population in the German vise.
The German buildup ensnared
the Jews in laws, decrees, and
regulations. The Germans
issued instruction; the Jews
reorganized their lives. The
Germans became harsh, the
Jews more vulnerable in their
quandary. As German moves
became ominous, the Jews
clung to hope. The Germans
pressed on relentlessly and the
Jews despaired. The outer
limits were reached: never
before had an act been so ex-
treme, a loss so total.
When Adolf Hitler came to
power in 1933, a modern
bureaucracy set out for the first
rime to destroy an entire
people. That machinery of
destruction was not a single
organization but a network of
offices in the party, the
ministries, the army, and
industry. Its onslaught on the
Jews was not planned in ad-
vance but developed blow by
blow. In spite of such decen-
tralization, few operations
could have been more efficient
than this singular deed in the
midst of a general war.

A New Years Curd
Author and Scriptwriter
for "Holocaust"
Years ago, during my
boyhood in Brownsville,
Brooklyn, N.Y., my mother
received a Rosh Hashanah card
every year from distant cousins
in Vilna. I don't remember the
precise relationship of the
people who sent the card. But
they were Matzkins, as was my
mother, and I'm told that all
Matzkins are related and most
are from the Vilna region.
I recall the card clearly. It
was from a brother and sister,
both single, in their early
twenties. The young man was a
professional photographer. He
would make up his own card
a tinted photograph of himself
and his sister. Smiling, gentle
people, fair-skinned, with
curling hair. And next to it a
greeting to his cousins in the
Matzkin family in Yiddish.
The cards stopped coming in
1939. We knew why.
Often I asked my mother and
her brotherswhat happened
to the photographer and his
sister? Did anyone know? They
had vanished, consumed in The
Holocaust, victims of the
greatest crime in history,
sacrifices to the barbarian
racialism, the nationalistic
madness that gripped a Europe
under the iron rule of the
demon king and his remorseless
"Nothing happens in
Germany without my
knowledge," Hitler bragged.
In Munich, in the twenties, he
boasted that when he came to
power he would hang a Jew
from every lamp post in
Munich till the bodies stank,
cut them down and repeat the
process, until every Jew in
Munich was dead. Then he
would begin on other cities. In
the middle thirties, the Fuehrer
informed the Italian am-
bassador that in five hundred
years Adolf Hitler would be
remembered for one thing alone
the annihilation of the Jews.
So much for recent
revisionist "historians" who
claim that Hitler really didn't
want to gas all those women
and children and innocents;
that the allies forced his hand;
that underlings like Heydrich
and Eichmann acted on their
own. Liars beget liars. And
Hitler, supreme terrorist,
murderer and liar has ap-
parently given birth, thirty-five
years after the great crime, to a
brood of lying "scholars."
"Holocaust" will help set the
record straight-
Over the years I often
thought of the vanished brother
and sister. Had my grand-
parents not been brave enough.
(continued on paft 16)
There was a time that when
nations engaged in war, warrior
was pitted against warrior.
Civilians suffered, often deeply,
but usually incidentally or
accidentally. It was the National
Socialist Party the Nazis
of post-World War I Germany
that first mobilized the entire
might of a modern, industrialized
society against an unarmed and
unprepared people civilians
whose only offense was that
they were members of a
minority faith. There were no
soldiers among this enemy
no guns, no tanks, no planes.
They were scattered over the
land, in small enclaves,
unprotected amid the general
population. They had no
awareness, most of them, until it
was too late, of the extent of the
hatred directed against them.
And when at last some of them
arose in desperate struggle,
they were far too few and much
too weak, and they were
doomed, as were their brethren
who went quietly to their deaths.
Jews themselves chose the term
"Holocaust" to describe their
ordeal under the Nazis.
Holocaust means complete
destruction by fire.
The Holocaust began way
before Adolf Hitler came to
power in 1933 and proclaimed
the Third Reich. As early as
1924, Nazis had introduced
anti-Jewish bills in the
Reichstag. The resolutions were
hooted down, jeered as the
ideas of lunatics. A little more
than a decade later the same
bills were the law of the land,
and faithfully obeyed by the
As early as 1925 the Nazis
began open espousal of their
true program: The Final
Solution. It was veiled, to be
sure, expressed in code words,
ambiguous. But it was there for
the world to hear, time enough
for something to have been
The personal attacks against
the Jews of Germany were
followed by laws depriving them
of their citizenship, their rights,
their businesses, their homes
and finally their lives.
The isolation from the society
they felt was their own
culminated on the night of
November 9, 1938, in
Kristallnacht: night of glass,
literally, but Night of Broken
Glass, in reality and now in
name. Kristallnacht:
spontaneous reprisals for the
shooting of a diplomat, the
Nazis said, until their own
documents proved it to be a
well-planned pogrom.
Kristallnacht in which
synagogues and Jewish shops
and Jewish businesses and
Jewish homes were attacked
and destroyed by frenzied mobs
more military than civilian.
The tragic drama might not
have occurred, though, or
having begun, might have been
halted Hitter came to power
legally, using the law to
undermine the meaning of law;
using deception at first and force
later. But men and women of
goodwiH in Germany caught up
in their own personal interests
dismissed his malevolence and
the evil of his National Socialist
ideology as irrelevant to them.
The leaders of the Western
allies had been presented with a
blueprint of his plans for
conquest and ignored it,
acquiescing to his occupation of
the Rhineland and Austria and
Czechoslovakia. The authorities
of the Christian churches of
Europe bought their peace with
the murderer rather than raise
their voices in moral indignation
and condemnation. Few nations
would even open their borders
to those who tried to escape.
Millions of lives would have
been saved. But except for
those Jews saved by the
heroism of the Danes and by
some brave souls in occupied
lands Righteous Gentiles,
they are called now the Jews
were driven to their deaths,
leaving at war's end a pitiful
remnant of survivors, one-third
of their former number.
And so the tragedy ran its
course. Wherever the Nazis
conquered, they rounded up the
Jews, separated them from the
native population, herded them
into ghettos killed them.
Jewish leaders were forced to
assist in the programs of
annihilation. Einsatzgruppen,
special action squads the
special action being
extermination accompanied
regular army units and marched
communities of Jews outside
captured towns and shot them
down in pits the victims
themselves had been forced to
dig. Hordes of Jews were sent
in crowded trains in boxcars
and cattlecars to
concentration camps where, with
gas and fire, they were
destroyed by the hundreds of
thousands. Those who were not
put to death directly were used
for forced labor or inhuman
medical experiments.
Finally, the Free World awoke
and arose against the Nazis.
Overextended by its own
ambition and caught in its own
duplicity, the Third Reich was
brought down. Its chief
architects. Hitter and Goebbets.
lay dead in its rubble. Others
were rounded up, and while the
world tried to comprehend their
brutality, the enormity of their
deeds, they were tried and
sentenced, some to death, some
to jail. Still otoers escaped
some, like Eichmann, to be
hunted down and captured
years later; some, many
perhaps, to remain at large,
even today.
The Holocaust cannot and
must not be forgotten. Not for
the sake of the Jews, but for the
sake of humanity. If civilization
is to survive, mankind must
team to recognize evil when it
appears and halt its spread
before, like the Nazi disease, i
contaminates one people and
destroys another.

I received a letter from a
professor at the Sorbonne. Yes,
there were ovens in the camps,
he says, but only for the sick
people, never were there any
gas chambers. There is a
movement now which has one
aim: Not only to rewrite
history, but to destroy it and in
so doing, humble and
humiliate those teachers who
still not only remember, but
still secretly carry their
wounds. If we are to believe
these morally deranged,
perverted so-called historians,
the Holocaust never took place,
the victims did not perish, the
six million blackmailed the
German people, the ovens in
Auschwitz were bakeries...
This attempt to deprive the
victim of his or her past is
obscene. But it's not new.
"The Diary of Anne Frank"
was only recently termed a
forgery by an ambassador at the
United Nations. And to my
shame as a human being, no
one at the U.N. spit in his face.
A prominent European
playwright wrote about the
Auschwitz trial and managed
not to mention the word Jew.
There is no monument for
Jewish victims in Babi Yar, as
there is none in Auschwitz.
Is it not beneath our dignity
and the dignity of the deaths to
refute these lies? But, then, is
silence the answer? It never
was, and that is why the
survivors chose to teach. What

speak of other things, but who

America not speaking out in
one voice in outrage? And what
about the American soldiers
who liberated the camps? They
saw ... I remember them. Why
don't they speak up? Why
don't they become witnesses?
More than sadness, I feel
despair, and even more than
despair, I feel disgust. But one
doesn't stop. We go on
A new Holocaust cannot
happen, not a systematic
undertaking with ghettos,
camps, barbed wire. But given
the proper circumstances, even
the political situation in the
Middle East, the economic
situation here, I can foresee an
upsurge of an anti-Semitic
movement that would bring
fear to this country. Should the

Jews were finally granted
"formal equality'' in the

could to stifle Jewish advance
and to prevent absolute
equality. Few Jews were
allowed to become lull
protessors at the universities:
even tewer were commissioned
as officers of the Imperial
Army; and it remained
practically impossible tor a Jew
to be appointed to either the
diplomatic, the consular, of the
civil service. The equality
afforded to Jews was. thus,
formal but not all-embracing.
This position of "formal
equality* continued
throughout the existence of the
Second Empire v1871-1918).
However, there came in close

Jewish merchants visited
Poland in the course of their
journeys. While the very first
settlers came trom the east in
the tenth century, the earliest
large scale migrations to
Poland, between the twelfth
and fifteenth centuries, were
from the west. Most of the
settlers fled from German lands
and Bohemia during the
Crusades and the period of the
Black Death. They were
followed by Jews who sought
asylum in Poland and other
countries after their expulsion
from Spain and Portugal in
1492 1493.
Citj Dwellers
Unlike the largely peasant
Slavic populations, the Jews
were city dwellers and skilled
craftsmen. They also were
experienced in trade and fiscal
matters. Polish kings and
princes, who welcomed the
contribution the Jews could
make to Poland's economic
development, encouraged them
to settle and offered them

a virtual monopoly over entire

mills, and the production and

could not live within their
limits. Sometimes Jews were
compelled to live within
designated areas within the

from various spheres of

Jews were resourceful in
coping with such restrictions.
When they were excluded trom

80% were natives. They were
active participants in the
economic, social and cultural life
of their country. They created
works on German themes in
literature, art and music. Central
to them was their sense of
belonging. Nazism, for them,
was simply another
manifestation of anti-Semitism,
which they believed was the
historical fate of all Jews.
In Poland it was different
There were more Jews (3.3
million of them) and they
constituted a larger percentage
of the total population (10%), but
their lot was not as good.
A Different Living
In Poland, too. the Jews were
urban: more than three-quarters
of them lived in cities and towns,
27% of Poland's urban
population. But they earned their
living differently than the
German Jews. In Poland, only a
third of the Jews were involved

about 6% were professionals:
about 40% were engaged in
industry and handicrafts

weakened by war and internal
conflict. In the years 1772-
1795. Poland was partitioned
and absorbed by neighboring
Austria. Prussia, and Russia,
who were to dominate her for
almost one hundred and fifty

the population, were divided

which they confronted

known before the partitions.

Feb. 15, 1933 It is ex-

correspondents to see Hitler.
He has a deep-rooted suspicion
of them all. It was only after I
had been passed upon by the
press department of the
Nationalist Socialist party that I
was permitted to visit the new
Chancellor at his summer
"Brown House" a hundred or
so miles from Munich. Here he
was living with his secretaries
and his bodyguards, seeing tht
many callers who flocked to his
house daily.
His greeting, when I was
introduced to him, was per-
functory, suggesting latent
hostility, and my first question
brought this forth into full
flame. I had asked him whether
his anti-Semitism concerned
Jews everywhere or whether he
had something specific against
German-Jews as such.
"In America you exclude
any would-be immigrants you
do not care to admit,'' he said
emphatically. 'You regulate
their number. Not content with
that, you prescribe their
physical condition. Not content
with that, you insist on the
conformity of their political
opinions. We demand the same

Purged of Jews
On Thursday at 5 p.m. the
swastika flag was hoisted on the
property of the last Jew to leave
Hersbruck. The Hersbruck
district is now definitely purged
of Jews. With pride and
satisfaction the population takes
cognizance of this fact,
recognizing that this "spring
cleaning" is first and foremost
due to district leader Party
comrade Sperber, who has
emphasized the Jewish danger
at thousands of meetings, until
the people realized the truth,
and the last Jew left the district
. We are firmly convinced
that other districts will soon
follow suit, and that the day is
not now far off when the whole
of Franconia will be rid of Jews,
just as that day must dawn
when throughout the whole of
Germany there will no longer
be one single Jew.

Sept. 15, 1935 Stringent
new laws depriving German
Jews of all the rights of German
citizens and prohibiting
marriages between Jews and
"Aryans" (Gentiles) were
decreed by a subservient,
cheering Reichstag here
tonight, after an address by
Chancellor Adolf Hitler.
In addition, the swastika
banner of German Facism,
described to the Reichstag by
General Hermann Wilhelm
Goering as "the anti-Jewish
symbol of the world," was
declared to be the sole national
flag of the Reich. The black-
white-red emblem with its
imperial implications, was
abolished in its present form.
Tonight's decrees are
considered among the most
sweeping measures taken since
the Nazis came into power two
and a half years ago.
That proclaiming the
swastika flag as the national
banner was occasioned in part
by the rioting on the liner
Bremen in New York in July,
when the Nazi flag was torn
down, and by Magistrate Louis
B. Brodsky's subsequent
characterization of the swastika
standard as a "black flag of
piracy," it was indicated by
General Goering.
He declared: "It is
regrettable that the American
people recently tolerated an
impudent Jewish insult to our
flag, which has been to us a
holy symbol, under which we
have fought and suffered, and
under which Germany will
stand once and for all
throughout eternity."
Under the new statutes, Jews
in Germany will be put back
abruptly to their position in
Europe during the Middle Ages
and the Renaissance.
The laws constitute a signal
victory for the violent anti-
Jewish wing of the Nazi party,
led by Julius Streicher.
The new any-Jewish laws,
which go into effect January 1,
constitute realization of nearly
the whole anti-Semitic portion
of the Nazi program.
They are described as "laws
for the protection of German
blood and German honor." As
read before the Reichstag by
Goering, president of the
legislative body, they follow:
1. Marriages between Jews
and German citizens are for-
bidden ;
2. Extra-marital relations
between Jews and Germans are
3. Jews are not permitted
to employ in their household
German servants under the age
of forty-five;

Re-establishment of the
ghetto is now under way, as is
maniiest in the recent decision
to establish separate schools for
Jews. Two months ago Julius
Streicher, anti-Semitic Nazi
leader of Franconia, urged on
the government the ghetto
policy with all its implications.
Streicher had his way in the
matter of the schools, and again
last night in the enactment of
the anti-Jewish laws.
There are definite indications
that Chancellor Adolf Hider is
prepared to go much further
along the lines which Streicher
and others of his crew are
pointing out, with elimination
of all the Jews in Germany as
their ultimate aim.
Just now there is much
speculation as to how the
gradual realization of a ghetto
policy will affect Jews in
business. Although stringent
legal as well as extra-legal
measures are intended to
eliminate Jews from the
professions, direct interference
with their business activities
has been confined largely to
anti-Jewish boycotts and anti-

Prom The Associated Press,
(Night of Broken Glass)
by Otto D. Tolischus
BERLIN, Nov. 10 A
wave of destruction, looting
and incendiarism unparalleled
in Germany since the Thirty
Years War and in Europe
generally since the Bolshevist
revolution, swept over Great
Germany today as National
Socialist cohorts took
vengeance on Jewish shops,
offices and synagogues for the,
murder by a young Polish Jew
of Ernst von Rath, third
secretary of the German
Embassy in Paris.
Wrecking, Looting and Burning
Beginning systematically in
the early morning hours in
almost every town and city in
the country, the wrecking,
looting and burning continued
all day. Huge but mostly silent
crowds looked on and the police
confined themselves to
regulating traffic and making
wholesale arrests of Jews "for
their own protection."
All day the main shopping
districts as well as the side
streets of Berlin and in-
numerable other places
resounded to the shattering of
shop windows falling to the
pavement, the dull thuds of
furniture and fittings being
pounded to pieces and the
clamor of fire brigades rushing
to burning shops and
synagogues. Although shop
fires were quickly extinguished,
synagogue fires were merely
kept from spreading to ad-
joining buildings.
Violence to Property
As far as could be ascertained
the violence was mainly
confined to property. Although
individuals were beaten,
reports so far tell of the death of
only two persons a Jew in
Polzin, Pomerania, and
another in Bunzdorf.
In extent, intensity and total
damage, however, the day's
outbreaks exceeded even those
of the 1918 revolution and by
nightfall there was scarcely a
Jewish shop, cafe, office or
synagogue in the country that
was not either wrecked, burned
severely or damaged.
Thereupon Propaganda
Minister Joseph Goebbels
issued the following
"The justified and un-
derstandable anger of the
German people, over the
cowardly Jewish murder of a
German diplomat in Paris
found extensive expression
during last night. In numerous
cities and towns of the Reich
retaliatory action has been
undertaken against Jewish
buildings and businesses.
"Now a strict request is
issued to the entire population
to cease immediately all further
demonstrations and actions
against Jewry, no matter what
kind. A final answer to the
Jewish assassination in Paris
will be given to Jewry by way of
legislation and ordinance."
What this legal action is
going to be remains to be seen.
It is known, however, that
measures for the extensive
expulsion of foreign Jews are
already being prepared in the
Interior Ministry, and some
towns, like Munich, have
ordered all Jews to leave within
forty-eight hours. All Jewish
organizational, cultural and
publishing activity has been
suspended. It is assumed that
the Jews, who have now lost
most of their possessions and
livelihood, will either be
thrown into the streets or put
into ghettos and concentration
camps, or impressed into labor
brigades and put to work for the
Third Reich, as the children of
Israel were once before for the
In any case, all day in Berlin,
as throughout the country,
thousands of Jews, mostly
men, were being taken from
their homes and arrested in
particular prominent Jewish
leaders, who in some cases, it is
understood, were told they
were being held as hostages for
the good behavior of Jewry
outside Germany.
In Breslau they were hunted
out even in the homes of non-
Jews where they might have
been hiding.
Synagogues Burned
Berlin papers also mention
many cities and towns in which
anti-Jewish excesses occurred,
including Potsdam, Stettin,
Frankfort on the Main,
Leipzig, Luebeck, Cologne,
Nuremberg, Essen,
Duesseldorf, Konstanz,
Landsberg, Kottbus and
Eberswalde. In most of them, it
is reported, synagogues were
raided and burned and shops
were demolished. But in
general the press follows a
system of reporting only local
excesses so as to disguise the
national extent of the outbreak,
the full spread of which
probably never will be known.
Generally the crowds were
silent and the majority seemed
gravely disturbed by the
proceedings. Only members of
the wrecking squads shouted-
occasionally, "Perish Jewry!"
and "Kill the Jews!" and in
one case a person in the crowd
shouted, "Why not hang the
owner in the window?"
An American Observer
In one case on the Kur-
fuerstendamm actual violence
was observed by an American
girl who saw one Jew with his
face bandaged dragged from a
shop, beaten and chased by a
crowd while a second Jew was
dragged from the same shop by
a single man who beat him as
the crowd looked on.
Grave doubt prevails
whether insurance companies
will honor their policies. Some
are reported to have flatly
refused to reimburse for the
damage because of its extent,
and, considering the standing
the Jew enjoys in German
courts today, there is little
likelihood of his collecting by
suing. But there still remains to
be settled the damage done to
"Aryan" houses and other

1939 For almost two
months now there has been no
military action on land, sea, or
in the air. From talks with
German military people,
however, I'm convinced it
would be a mistake to think that
Germany will accept the Allied
challenge to fight this war
largely on the economic front.
That is just the kind of war in
which the Reich would be at a
disadvantage. And that's one of
the reasons why most people
here expect military action very
soon now.

al of occupied Poland, today

United Press International, 9/3/42.
by Dr. Witold Majewski
I was in the ghetto three
times. I had permission to visit
it as a physician. The entrance
into the ghetto is under the
control of German and Polish
police; the interior is super-
vised by Jewish police. The
Warsaw street cars stop sixty or
seventy meters from the gates
of the ghetto. When they pass
the streets of the ghetto, the
cars dash through them so
swifdy that no one is able to
jump off. Typhus and other
epidemics rage in the ghetto.
Children under 3 years of age
and adults over 45 may not
receive medical attention. Jews
receive half the food which the
Poles receive. The Poles receive
100 grams of bread daily, the
Jews receive 100 grams by
radon cards every other day.
Sometimes kasha (buckwheat)
is given out, but not regularly
it's all very arbitrary. The
children in the ghetto are worse
off. Sometimes a bottle of milk
is pushed through the sewer
pipes near the ghetto walk.
Food is smuggled through the
walls in many different ways. In
the face of death by hunger, the
Jews risk their lives to obtain a
morsel of bread.
from: Gaztl.i Polsk.i. 1941.
Blitzkrieg! A new kind of war
especially for the Jews. Hitler
invaded Poland on September
1, 1939, and more than three
million Jews came under his
rule, some of them having been
deported there a year or two
earlier by the Nazis themselves.
Two years later Russia was
invaded and another three
million Jews were subjected to
Nazi rule. By that time virtually
all of Europe's Jews nine
million of them before the war
were being crushed under the
Nazi heel. Only one out of every
three would escape death.
Any doubts that the Nazis
would behave differently in
Eastern Europe than they had
acted toward the Jews of
Germany were dispelled early.
On September 16, 1939, the
eve of Rosh Hashana, the
beginning of the Jewish New
Year, the Luftwaffe, the German
air force, bombed the Jewish
quarter of Warsaw. The
significance of the attack was
The response, in Warsaw and
elsewhere, was flight. Jewish
and non-Jewish refugees
crowded the roads, driven by
the advancing Wehrmacht as
dust before a broom.
The Jews, their rights and
livelihoods long gone in
Germany and elsewhere, were
marked: white armbands, yellow
Stars of David. The fact that
they had lived in ghettos, which
they accepted as an historical
truth, now became legally
enforced ghettoization. Judenrat,
Jewish governing councils, were
created by orders of the
occupying authorities to carry
out their murderous designs.
But the ghettos created by the
Nazis were not like the ghettos
the Jews had confined
themselves to during the Middle
Ages. The Medieval ghettos
were devised by Jews for
protection of themselves and
their institutions. These ghettos,
where starvation, exposure and
disease took their toll dairy, were
part of the Final Solution for
Jewish destruction and
extermination. They were human
cages, no less cruel than the
concentration camps, and no
less deadly.
Again, there Is no lack of
documentation of this period of
Nazi rule. Study It, compare the
Nazi occupation to that of other
conquerors, compare the
reaction of those overrun to that
of other peoples who have been
subjugated by an oppressor.
"The will to live Is so strong that
it created the illusions to sustain
It." This statement attempts to
explain why the Jews refused to
believe what their fate would be
at the hands of the Nazis. Is tbie,
an accurate psychological % f
judgment? What would you a*ry\
are the qualities needed to w
survive in a ghetto?

Extermination of
Jews in Reprisal
for Bombings
BERLIN. June 12 (From
German Broadcast Recorded by
The United Press in New
York) Propaganda Minister
Joseph Goebbels said tonight
that Germany would carry out
a mass '"extermination" of
Jews in reprisal for the Allied
ir bombings of German cities
which, he acknowledged, have
caused heavy damage.
Dr. Goebbels, in an article in
the publication The Reich, said
the Jews would be exterminated
throughout Europe "and
perhaps even beyond Europe"
in retaliation against the heavy-
air assaults.
Dr. Goebbels said the
damage inflicted thus far on
German war production was
not great enough to cause
"serious setbacks." He
declared Germany would repay
"blow by blow" the air attacks
on her cities.

Plea from Warsaw
is Heard in London
LONDON, March 19 A
plea that the Allies should treat
German prisoners of war as
hostages for the safety of Jews
in Warsaw came in a message
from the Warsaw ghetto to the
Jewish labor representative of
the Polish National Council in
London today.
The message also urged that
the Pope should be petitioned to
intervene officially before the
"liquidation" of the ghetto
already speeded up by the Nazis
has been completed.
The message said it was the
German intention to empty the
ghetto altogether and cited the
occasion a few days ago when
the German police tried forcibly
to evacuate a large block of
densely populated houses. The
inmates resisted and fifty
Germans were killed. The
Germans then brought up
machine guns and some
hundreds of Jews were mur-
dered on the spot.
The slaughter continued for
three days until the whole block
was evacuated and 6,000 Jews
were taken away.
The message closed with the
words: "You must rouse the
whole world to action."

Warsaw's Ghetto
Fights Deportation
The New York Times
LONDON, April 22
Armored cars and tanks have
moved into Warsaw, where the
ghetto populace is resisting
deportation of the city's
remaining 35,000 Jews. The
battle was still raging when the
Polish exile government in
London received its latest news
last night.
Those resisting are the most
active elements left after the
mass murders and deportations
of last Fall. The Polish un-
derground movement has
supplied arms and sent trained
commanders for a last stand,
which is said to be costing the
Germans many lives.
After Warsaw, the Cracow
ghetto is to be liquidated, it is
stated, deportations having
already started. Western Poland
has been incorporated into the
Reich and Jews there were
spared until recently. Now
special concentration camps
have been established near
Lodz, and other towns.
Polish circles here believe
1,300,000 Polish Jews already
have perished under the
German occupation.

Battle is Reported
in Warsaw's Ghetto
LONDON, May 6, (U.P.)
A battle has been raging for
seventeen days in Warsaw's
ghetto, where Jews have
converted their homes into
forts and barricaded shops and
stores for defense posts, Polish
sources said today.
The Jews, fighting against
annihilation by the Nazis, were
reported using bedsteads as
bunkers and fighting with arms
smuggled into the ghetto.
An underground Polish radio
station several weeks ago
broadcast an appeal from
Warsaw for help. In a broadcast
that was terminated abruptly, it
reported that Warsaw's
chamher typical of ones through which millions of Jews
remaining Jews had been
sentenced to death* by the
German occupation authorities
and that women and children
were defending themselves
"with their bare arms."
Polish sources here said that
when German execution squads
went into the ghetto they were
met by "furious resistance"
and that fighting had been in
progress since April 29.

Jews Freed from
Concentration Comp
Join Yugoslav Partisans
There are scarcely any Jews
in the army, since most of them
were slaughtered by the Axis.
However, 300 of a group
liberated from a concentration
camp on the island of Huar
joined one brigade.
The New York Times. 12/24/43.
By 1941, the Final Solution was
no longer confined to secret
memoranda and diaries. The
brutal taunting was past, even
the forced labor camps were no
longer sufficient for meeting the
Nazis' goals. The time had
come to make the Third Reich
free from Jews altogether.
The methods had been
tested: since the late 1930s,
mental and physical cripples had
been put to death; "euthanasia,''
it was called. Now the
Vernichtungslager, the death
camps, were begun. Birkenau;
Chelmno, near Lodz; Belzec and
Majdanek, near Lublin;
TreWinka, near Warsaw. The
methods were refined; the early
ones were inadequate for the
enormity of the task.
The deportations
"resettlement," they were called
started. The ghettos were
scheduled for liquidation.
The record of Jewish
resistance is not extensive, but it
is testimony less to the strength
of the people than to the reality
of their situation. A mob of
drunken peasants or a company
of cossacks were one thing; the
SS was quite another. Civil
disobedience is no weapon
against a government of terror.
The brutality of the reprisals for
any opposition far exceeded any
benefits the acts themselves
There was opposition and
resistance, though. Jews fought
in partisan units and formed
their own, they joined the
underground and had their own
clandestine networks, including
newspapers and telegraph
systems. There were acts of
sabotage and assassination,
even in the death camps. In the
work camps, the slogan, "Work
badly and slowly," was a motto
to live by.
There were many non-Jewish
anti-Nazis, like Pastor Martin
Niemoeller, and the assistance
they gave the Jews is
impressive in the face of the
danger they confronted and the
suffering they risked.
And in each ghetto there were
groups of Jews, most of them
young Zionists and socialists,
who felt they were doomed
anyway and preferred to die
fighting, even knowing they
would change nothing, could
save nothing but their own
honor. That was enough. It
outweighed any risk to the entire
Nowhere was this belief more
prevalent than in the Warsaw
Ghetto where, between April 19,
1943 the first night of
Passover and May 8, 1943,
some of the most heroic actions
of the entire war were recorded.
When the revolt was finally
ended by a Nazi force of more
than 5,000 men, May 8, the
ghetto was a cemetery, but it
had held out against the Nazi
onslaught longer than the Polish
army in 1939.
Reports of what the Nazis
were doing began to filter out.
But how could the Western
world believe them when even
the Jews of Eastern Europe
found it difficult to comprehend
what was happening to them?
As far as the Nazis were
concerned, the Final Solution
was as important as the war.
Jews were moved to the death
camps while troops for the front
were shunted onto sidings. Even
when the military situation
began to deteriorate, execution
of the Final Solution continued
without interruption War plans
could be changed, but not those
for the Final Solution.
Evidence of the Nazi
atrocities is as exhaustive as it
is horrifying. What does it reveal
about the persons who
conceived the Final Solution,
and what does it reveal about
the people against whom the
reign of terror was directed?
Consider the attempts of
Jews to resist and what it
reveals about the Jews of
Europe and oppressed people
anywhere. Consider the
response of the outside world to
appeals from those who were
doomed. Consider the attitudes
of those who died and those
who survived.

One of the first things that
the German civilian visitors
saw as they passed through the
gates and into the interior of the
camp was a display of "par-
chment." This consisted of
large pieces of human flesh on
which were elaborate tatooed
markings. These strips had
been collected by a German
doctor who was writing a
treatis.e on tatooes, and also by
the 28-year-old wife of the
Standartenfuehrer or com-
manding officer. This woman,
according to prisoners, was an
energetic sportswoman who,
back in Brandenburg, used to
ride to hounds. She had a mania
for unusual tattooes, and
whenever a prisoner arrived
who had a rare marking on his
body, she would indicate that
that trophy would make a
valuable addition to her
In addition to the "par-
chments" were two large able
lamps, with parchment shades
also made of human flesh.

Killings Placed
at 4,000,000
By C. L. Sulzberger
MOSCOW, May 7 More
than 4,000,000 persons were
systematically slaughtered in a
single German concentration
camp that at Oswiecim in
Poland, near Cracow from
1939 to 1944. The Germans
thus accomplished with
scientific efficiency the greatest
incidence of mass murder in
recorded history.
This slaughter exceeds in
barbaric intention and method
not only the greatest brutalities
of such infamous conquerors as
Genghis Khan but also sur-
passes even Germany's
own record in her previous
prize exhibitions at Maidanek,
Dachau and Buchenwald.
Such is the miserable tale
made public today on the eve
of the official end of the
European war by the Soviet
Union's Extraordinary State
Commission investigating the
extermination center at
Oswiecim. For some time
various Russians have had a
pretty good idea of the abysmal
tale of Oswiecim, especially
those now working on a Black
Book of German infamy, but
these are the first statistical data
of the horrible camp's record.
According to the Soviet
commission, "more than
4,000,000 citizens" of the
Mass grave at BergenBelsen, 1945 / Photo credit: Black Star
Soviet Union, Poland, France
Belgium, the Netherlands^
Czechoslovakia, Yugoslavia and
other countries, including the
non-Allied lands of Hungary
and Rumania, were ex-
terminated in Oswiecim. The
means used were "shooting,
famine, poisoning and mon-
strous tortures."
The report states that gas
chambers, crematoria, surgical
wards, laboratories and clinics
were erected around Oswiecim
to accomplish this mass-
production monstrosity.
Such a report would seem
incredible to American readers
except that now they have been
"conditioned" by the horrors
of Buchenwald, which already
have been fully investigated.
According to the Soviet
report, which included in-
terviews with 2,819 liberated
prisoners at Oswiecim, Ger-
man professors and doctors
conducted their experiments on
healthy persons, including
castration, sterilization of
women, artificial infection with
cancer, typhus and malaria
germs, tests of the effects of
poisons and the destruction of
children by injection into the
heart of carbolic acid or the
simpler method of heaving
them into furnaces.
The camp, it is charged, was
organized by Heinrich Him-
mler, built in 1939 by his order
and construced in a huge series
of buildings around the
Oswiecim suburbs to house
between 180,000 and 250,000
prisoners simultaneously.
The first crematorium was
erected in 1941, but the not
year, it is stated, Himmler
inspected the camp and decided
that "improvements" were
necessary, so new furnaces
were built by the German firm
of Topf 8i Sons.
Public baths were installed
for group cyanide poisoning,
and because "the baths"
output exceeded the
crematoria's capacity, deep pits
were dug where excess bodies
were burned over huge fires.
The report states that in
1943 the frugal Germans
decided to sell the unburned
bones to the firm of Schterhm
to be used for the production of
superphosphates, which was
done, and that, in addition to
almost 113 tons of crushed
bones, loads of women's hair
were sold for industrial pur-
Within twenty-four hours,
each crematorium was able to
consume more than 10,000
bodies, it is stated on the basis
of information provided by
Polish, Hungarian, French,
Czechoslovak, Netherland,
Yugoslavia, Italian, Greek,
Rumanian and Belgian sur-
vivors interviewed.
Besides the human guintt
pigs kept alive for "
perimentation, some 200,000
were utilized at various tun*5
for hard labor, but the weak-
lings were continually weeded
out for the gas chambers.
Tons of clothing, bedding
and the personal belongings ol
the murdered victims were seat
to Germany.

the product of abstract
speculations nor is it created to
vindicate legalistic theories.
This inquest represents the
practical effort of four of the
most mighty of nations, with
the support of fifteen more, to
utilize International Law to
meet the greatest menace of our
times aggressive war. The
common sense of mankind
demands that law shall not stop
with the punishment of petty
crimes by little people. It must
also reach men who possess
themselves of great power and
make deliberate and concerted
use of it to set in motion evils
which leave no home in the
world untouched. It is a cause
of this magnitude that the
United Nations will lay before
Your Honors.
In the prisoners' dock sit
twenty-odd broken men.
Reproached by the humiliation
of those they have led almost as
bitterly as by the desolation of
those they have attacked, their
personal capacity for evil is
forever past. It is hard now to
perceive in these miserable men
as captives the power by which
as Nazi leaders they once
dominated much of the world
and terrified most of it. Merely
as individuals, their fate is of
little consequence to the world.
What makes this inquest
significant is that these
prisoners represent sinister
influences that will lurk in the
world long after their bodies
have returned to dust. They are
living symbob of racial hatreds,
of terrorism and violence, and
of the arrogance and cruelty of
power. They are symbob of
fierce nationalisms and of
militarism, of intrigue and war-
making which have embroiled
Europe generation after
generation, crushing its
manhood, destroying its
homes, and impoverishing its
life. They have so identified
themselves with the
philosophies they conceived
and with the forces they
directed that any tenderness to
them is a victory and an en-
couragement to all the evib
which are attached to their
names. Civilization can afford
no comprombe with the social
forces which would gain
renewed strength if we deal
ambiguously or indecbively
with the men in whom those
forces now precariously sur-
What these men stand for we

undeniable proofs of incredible

conceived by a pathological
pride, cruelty, and lust for
power. These men created in
Germany, under the
"Fuhrerprinzip National
Socialist despotism equaled
only by the dynasties of the
ancient East. They took from
the German people all those
dignities and freedoms that we
hold natural and inalienable
rights in every human being.
The people were compensated
by inflaming and gratifying
hatreds toward those who were
marked as "scapegoats."
Against their opponents,
including Jews, Catholics, and
free labor, the Nazis directed
such a campaign of arrogance,
brutality, and annihilation as
the world has not witnessed
since the pre-Chrbtian ages.
They excited the German
ambition to be a "master
race," which of course implies
serfdom for others. They led
their people on a mad gamble
for domination. They diverted
social energies and resources to
the creation oft what they
thought to be an invincible war
machine. They overran their

neighbors. To sustain the
"master race" in its war-
making, they enslaved millions
of human beings and brought
them into Germany, where
these hapless creatures now
wander as "displaced per-
sons." At length bestiality and
bad faith reached such excess
that they aroused the sleeping
strength of imperiled
Civilization. Its united efforts
have ground the German war
machine to fragments. But the
struggle has left Europe a
liberated yet prostrate land
where a demoralized society
struggles to survive. These are
the fruits of the sinister forces
that sit with these defendants in
the prisoners' dock.
The war did not end for two
more years, but Warsaw was
the end as far as organized
Jewish resistance went. The
number of surviving Jews went
pitifully down day by day. The
effort now went into keeping
Jews alive as a "saving
remnant" and as future
witnesses against the Nazis.
The full extent of the crime
was not to be known for a while.
The world watched in horror as
the death camps were liberated,
it listened in shock as
Nuremberg prosecutors elicited
17,000 pages of testimony about
the unprecedented, systematic
destruction of an entire people.
But many of those who had
perpetrated these atrocities had
committed suicide or fled.
Those who were brought to
trial sat in the dock as their
accusers presented them with
nearly three thousand tons of
documents Nazi leaders had
written about their deeds, with
more than five thousand
photographs of ghettos,
deportations, concentration
camps, crematoria and mass
graves. In the face of this
evidence they turned to the
world and said they knew
nothing of what had occurred or
they were only following orders.
It was for Justice Robert
Jackson, chief American counsel
at Nuremberg, to sum it up for
mankind: "The wrongs which we
seek to condemn and punish
have been so calculated, so
malignant and devastating, that
civilization cannot tolerate their
being ignored because it cannot
survive their being repeated."
How was It possible for the
world to stand by without
halting this destruction? What
role did the churches play
during this period? What do you
think are the attitudes of the
survivors? Could you make a
new life in a new country?
Consider the reactions of
mankind when it realized what
had happened.
Contemplate, also, the guilt of
those who were accused, their
defense and the justice that
was meted out to them.
Consider the Holocaust and
what:' means to you.

Congratulations will pour in

sixtieth birthday. They ought

bigotry of the present German
Government, the most
distinguished of living
mathematical physicists, one of
the great figures in the history
of intellectual achievement, is a
resident of the United States

dazzling gift of Einstein were
not darkened by a tragedy
which has brought despair to
fifteen hundred university
professors. American science
would be justified in cabling a
warm "thank you" to the
Fuehrer who has outdone the
Middle Ages in fanatic cruelty
and so far blighted German
research that not for a
generation after his evil in-
fluence has passed can it expect
to recover something of its
former glory.
The Sew York Times. 3/14/39.
Hadassah Rosensaft was bom
in Sosnowice, Poland. She was
very gifted, always top of her
form at school, according tc
contemporaries. After high
school at home, a university
education at Nancy, France,
she studied dentistry, qualified
well and was ready to settle
down. Her success within the
terms of reference of her class
and her milieu was assured:
high qualifications, a good
family background, looks,
intelligence, a pleasant per-
sonality, a way with people...
And then the calamity. The
dates, in deep black, as it were,
we all heard from Hadassah
herself when, as Dr. Hadassah
Bimko, she appeared as the
chief witness for the
prosecution in the Belsen Trial
(17 September-17 November,
1943). She introduced herself
as 'a Jewess from Poland'' and
told the Court that she had been
arrested and sent to Auschwitz
on 4 August, 1943days,'
hours, even minutes count in
such nightmarish memories
and transferred to Belsen on 23
November, 1944. Both in
Auschwitz and in Belsen she
worked in so-called hospitals
and saw agony within agony.
It was Hadassah Rosensaft
who first told the world, from
the witness box of the first war
crimes trial, that records
secretly compiled by her friends
and herself at Auschwitz
showed that about four million
people had been done to death
in the crematoria. Today we
have access to all the horrible
details and the Nazi record is
laid bare. But Hadassah made
her statement only four months
\ after the war in Europe. An
incredulous world listened in
Albert Einstein, with his wife and daughter, receiving his American citizenship papers / Photo credit:
American Institute of Physics
stunned silence to the
testimony of a survivor who
preserved her sanity and her
judgement, and was able to
summon enough strength to
tell the story coherently.
Hadassah's evidence before
the Court at Luneberg I shall
never forget. She stood there
almost motionless, obviously
keeping a tight grip on herself,
and told the story of Auschwitz
and Belsen in a very quiet
voice, quieter even than usual.
She showed for the first time
how it happened that Belsen
had become the hell on earth
which we saw after liberation;
how healthy and intelligent
men and women had been
reduced to physical helplessness
and mental feebleness; how
proud people had been degraded ,
to a subhuman existence.
Of her own part before j
liberation Hadassah seldom i
speaks. And when she does it is
always in first person plural. It
took me a long time, years of
friendship and conversations,
serious and light-hearted,
penetrating and superficial,
before Hadassah told some of
her own story. This is not a
story one should interfere with.
I am letting her tell it.
"At 3 a.m. on a bitterly cold
December night in 1944, our
block at Belsen was suddenly
awakened by the noise of a
motorcar and the cry of
children. Soon we heard the
shouting of the SS, so familiar
to us in those days. We were
ordered outside and there we
saw a huge lorry full of children
of various ages. The SS told the
children to get out There were
forty-nine of them ranging in
age between eight months and
fifteen years. We took the
children inside. Ours was
supposed to be an ambulance
and treatment unit.
"We learned a little later
that these were the children of
Dutch Jews who had been
removed the same day from the
camp allegedly to teach the
Germans the art of diamond
polishing.They were never seen
again. It should not be difficult
to imagine our feelings when
we suddenly found ourselves in
charge of abandoned Jewish
children. We gave them all our
love and whatever strength was
left to us. Some weeks later,
more children arrived from
Buchenwald and Theresien-
stadt. They were children of
Polish and Czechoslovak Jews
who survived and reached us by
some miracle. I have no other
explanation. Our girls and
women took care of them.
Weak and ailing as they were
themselves, they attended to
the children day and night, fed
them, washed them and played
with them. When some of our
men, who worked in the SS
stores and chemist shops, heard
that we had children in our
block, they risked their lives
daily to steal food and other
commodities which they passed
on to us for our charges.
Without these Jewish men
and women the children would
not have survived. Thanks to

General H. L. Glyn Hughes,
the Chief Medical Officer of the
Second Army, became the
heroic figure in the battle to
save as many suvivors as
humanly possible. Many of the
survivors literally owe him
their lives. On liberation day,
the General asked whether one
of the inmates of the camp
would come with him to show
him round, and Hadassah was
chosen by them to accompany
the liberator. This co-operation
in the salvage of human beings
continued all through the
rehabilitation period. Hadassah
was soon appointed Ad-
ministrator of Hospitals in the
liberated camp and became a
provider of healing and balm for
the Nazi victims. When the old
and infested barracks were
ceremonially set on fire, on the
General Glyn Hughes's orders,
he paid his tribute to Hadassah
by inviting her to fire one of
the incendiary guns. Her
emotions at this particular
moment must be left to the
It was not by accident, too,
that Hadassah Rosensaft was
chosen to accompany the first
children's transport to Israel,
or rather Eretz Israel as it then
was. This group left Germany
on 9 April. On that day there
travelled a thousand Jewish
children, assembled from all
over Germany, and twenty
expectant mothers. One million
Jewish children had been done
to death in the holocaust; these
were the few survivors.
Hadassah is fond of saying that
this journey to Eretz Israel with
the children was one of the
highlights of her life. She tells;
"I paid some of the children
a visit to Kiryat Anavim and I
saw with what love and if-
fection they were treated. On
the Friday night, as we were
sitting down for the Sabbath
meal, I knew that our children
had at last come home"....
That was her reward.
Hadassah was by then married
to Yossl Rosensaft They stayed
in Belsen until the last inmate
left the camp in September,
1950, five years and fi
months after liberation.

them caught it or went through

and terrible night when we
were sitting by the feverish

There is nothing about
Hadassah's part in this story of
human courage and human
kindness. Others told me that it
was she who took charge of the
operation, who organized and
guided it to its successful end
when the children, all of them,
were delivered to their parents
and relatives or sent to Israel,
as was the case with the or-
phans and the friendless. But
rehabilitation took some time.

Irene was discovered, again
Eberhard came to her aid,
driving her back to hide her for
two weeks in his own office
until he could arrange suitable
papers which would not arouse
Gestapo suspicion. His
masterpiece, however, was to
send household help from
Drohobycz and Lwow to
German families in Germany.
Understandably, he chose fair-
haired and light-eyed Jewish
girls for this purpose, fur-
nishing them with Aryan
Polish or Ukrainian papers, and
paying their fares. All these
girls survived the war. One
girl, Hansi Warner, worked as
a maid in Berlin for Helmrich's
wife. Mrs. Helmrich was aware
that Hansi was Jewish, and she
[protected her throughout that
period. Hansi describes
Helmrich as "an extraordinary
person who helped hundreds of
People solely for humanitarian
i reasons."
Dr.Aimi Binder
The Secretary
In 1936 Anni Binder was
24-years old, working for the
Czech Foreign Office in Prague.
Following the German
conquest, she was dismissed
from her job and her outlook on
the world was transformed. She
aided Jews by offering them the
use of her diplomatic passport.
In 1938 she was arrested by the
Economic Police. Once
released, she renewed her
efforts and in 1941 was arrested
again, by the Gestapo. First
sent to the Ravensbrueck camp
for women as a political
prisoner, by March, 1942,
Anni was in Auschwitz.
Anni's experience in the
Foreign Office was the key to
her selection to the con-
centration camp office staff. She
became secretary at an ex-
perimental farming station
outside the camp where she was
ordered to find "suitable
German-speaking prisoners"
for the station. Her life-saving
rescue mission began. Seven
Jewish prisoners owe their lives
to Anni. She gave moral
comfort and intellectual
support to countless others.
One day, the SS conducted a
search and discovered Anni's
list of collaborators. Realizing
that they were all in grave
danger, Anni went to the
commander and asked that he
keep the matter quiet on the
condition that she would go to
Birkenau. The deal was made
and Anni left the comparative
comfort of the farming station
for a labor camp. In 1944,
paving roads in the ice and
snow, she fell ill and was taken
to the hospital. In August
1944, she was transferred back
to Ravensbrueck, then to
Graslitz from where she
escaped. Today, this
remarkable woman lives in
Prague with her husband and
three children.
Rotor Kalenczuk
USSR: Ukraine
Tlie Farmer
On a tree in Jerusalem is the
name Fiodor Michailovitch
Kalenczuk. Four Jews from the
Ukraine survived the war
because Kalenczuk, at peril to
himself and his family, hid
them on his farm for seventeen
long months. The Jewish
survivors were Pessah Kranz-
berg, a grain merchant from
the town of Hoszcza, his wife,
his 10-year-old daughter
Rassia, and Rassia's little friend
Miriam. In 1942 the Nazi
invaders marched across Poland
and Russia. Kranzberg and the
others managed to escape from
the burning ghetto in Hoszcza
and fled to Kalenczuk's farm.
The two men had known,
respected and liked each other
for five years, never imagining
what dark days would come.
When the world around the
Kranzbergs collapsed, Kalen-
czuk came forth with support.
First, he sheltered the fugitives
The Garden of the Righteous at Yad VashemHeroes' and Martyrs'
Remembrancein Jerusalem where the names of those courageous
individuals who saved Jewish lives are honored.
in his own home. Then he
fashioned a secure hiding place
for them in his stable, bringing
them meals three times a day,
taking care to provide only
kosher food. Kalenczuk himself
had to struggle to support his
wife and eight children. In
1943 he had to surrender part
of his harvest to the Germans,
yet he continued to feed the
four who were hiding in his
stable. His wife feared that the
Jews were endangering a
Christian household. But he
refused to deny them refuge. At
last, in January 1944 the Red
Army advance made it safe for
the Kranzbergs and little
Miriam to leave their hiding
place. Eventually they reached
Israel. And one day in 1967
Fiodor Michailovitch Kalen-
czuk stood with them in
Jerusalem at the ceremony
enshrining his name in the
Garden of the Righteous.
Wladislaw Misiuna
Tlie Foreman
In the winter of 1944,
thousands of Jews from the
Lodz ghetto were sent to work
in a factory near Radom.
Nearby, the Germans also set
up a rabbit farm for skins for
coats, caps and gloves for
troops on the Russian front.
Work on the farm was fairly
light and mostly women were
employed, including scores of
Jewish girls. But conditions
were such that death from
malnutrition or infection
always threatened. Nineteen-
year-old Wladislaw Misiuna
was one of the three Polish
foremen. He allowed the girls
to take vegetables from the
rabbits' supply. When the girls
told him his action might mean
a firing squad, he replied,
"You are hungry human
beings and therefore must eat.''
Perhaps worse than the star-
vation was the rampant filth
which bred highly contagious
disease. One of the girls was
covered with sores. Afraid that
the Germans would kill her and
the others who were also in-
fected, yet knowing it was
impossible for her to go to the
camp doctor, Wladislaw in-
fected himself, went to the
camp doctor and thus got the
medication to cure not only
himself but the girl as well. One
day Wladislaw had the girls put
all their clothing in a caldron of
boiling water. Just then a group
of SS officers came to inspect
the farm. One asked what was
in the pot. Wladislaw said it was
food for the rabbits. But the
officer was skeptical and un-
covered the laundry. The of-
ficer was enraged, and ordered
the SS-men to shoot the girls
and the foreman. Suddenly
Wladislaw spoke up: 'Don't
you believe in cleanliness and
hygiene? Do you want us to fall
ill with dreadful infections?'
For a moment, complete
silence. Then the officer said,
'Well, then, stay alive you
and these cursed Jewesses!'
When the Germans im-
prisoned the Jews in Vilna
behind the ghetto walls, Ona
Simaite, a librarian at the
University of Vilna, acted. By
pretending to retrieve books
from Jewish students, German
authorities gave her a permit to
enter the ghetto. She went
there almost every day, run-
ning "errands" for hundreds
of Jews. She reclaimed clothing
and valuables Jews had left with
their neighbors (who often
cursed her) and traded these for
food. She carried messages from
fighters in the ghetto to their
comrades in the city and
smuggled in forged documents
and weapons. She shared her
food rations with needy
children, existing herself on
potatoes and cabbage. Only
three women and a few
anonymous donors joined her
clandestine "Committee for
the Rescue of Jews" helping
her to rescue Jewish children,
cultural treasures, and Tor ah
Scrolls. She said a nation cannot
exist without a literature and a
culture and proclaimed her
faith in Jewish survival. Ona
Simaite rescued dozens of
children. One of them who
reached Palestine said "She
took me when the ghetto was
surrounded by gangs of
Lithuanian and Latvian
murderers took me to her
home. I was a total stranger,
but she cared for me as a
mother for her own suffering
child." Before the ghetto was
destroyed, in 1944, Ona
smuggled out a child on forged
"Aryan" papers. The forgery
was detected, Ona was arrested
and sentenced to death. But
Faculty members bribed an
official in the Gestapo to change

the program an "effort to bring
the most horrifying experience
of modern times before millions

"No fictional dramatization

of so many people," he said.
"But 'Holocaust' is an im-

consideration and discussion of
the facts and meaning of the
systematic murder of six
million Jews."
Anna S. Ochoa, president of

program "will provide the
necessary background to in-
volve people in a meaningful
study of the Holocaust, a
subject that too often has been
neglected in our schools "

A Nei Yt-iir',Card Irotn Vilru
/continued from pagi 2)
to make the long voyage from
Europe and become
Americans, I might have stood
at the lip of a ditch outside
Vilna with my cousins, or
waited naked outside the gas
chambers at Treblinka.
Good fortune endows one
with guilt. I have been lucky as
a writer, in having had three
opportunities to exorcise these
tragic memories, these ghastly
reflections of a crime against
my brethren, unprecedented
sufferings and degradations that
defy analysis. Twice I wrote
about The Holocaust in
booksa non-fiction work
entitled "The Artists of
Terezin." and a novel, "The
Legion of Noble Christians."
Consequently when NBC
and Herbert Brodkin ap-
proached me to write a
television drama on The
Holocaust, I already had ac-
cumulated a considerable
library of non-fiction literature
and documentation on the Nazi
era, the anti-Semitic cam-
paigns, the death camps, the
Jewish resistance movements.
And a day of my life has not
gone by that I have not thought
of the smiling young people on
the Rosh Hashanah card.
I did not seek to write a nine
and one-half hour tract The
TV series is not a documentary.
It is a drama, a tragedy, but
written in terms of history, true
events and real people. And the
dread events of the years 1935-
1945, supplied me with almost
too much material.
How, for example, can any
dramatist improve on the
documented account of
Himmler's only witnessing of a
mass shooting? Outside Minsk,
the bespectacled murderer, the
crackpot racial theorist, the
measurer of Jewish skulls,
swooned and staggered and
cried out as the SS machine
guns killed two hundred naked
Jews. Blood and brains spat-
tered on the Reichsfuehrer's
black boots, terrifying him.
Later he complimented his men
on their courage and stead-
fastness. "Mankind has a right
to protect itself from bed-bugs,
lice and Jews," he said.
Or how does one embellish
or intensify the fighting in the
Warsaw ghetto, which took
place at the start of Passover,
with some Jews holding their
meager seders, and others
firing captured German
weapons from windows and
sending the SS and their
Lithuanian hirelings into
confused, frightened retreat?
And how deal with the
nobility and love and kindness
(despite the recurrent stories of
the dog-eat-dog life of the
prisoners) of so many Jews in
the camps? Doctors who tended
the ill; teachers who held
classes in the shadow of the
crematoria; musicians who
tried to keep art and creativity
alive, knowing they might be
selected for "special handling"
the next day?
The answer is that very
little embellishment was
necessary. I created my fictional
Weiss family and let them be
swept up in the events of the
plague years. In counter-point,
I created Erik Dorf, lawyer, SS
officer, aide to the monster
Heydrich, a rationalizer, clever
with words and schemes, who
sends trainloads of Jews to their
death. "A subhuman
species," he says, echoing
Himmler. "They go to their
death willingly, which proves
the Reichsfuehrer's point"
But not all went willingly.
Only recently with the stories
of acts of resistance (the
Warsaw Ghetto fighting is
fairly well known) being
published, does the world
realize that not all Jews accept-
ed the Nazis' lies, deceits and
humiliations without protest.
In any event the drama is
done, and I hope that in some
measure it will be a fitting
tribute to the six million, the
survivors, and those brave Jews
who fought back.
Better to die fighting, said
Mordecai Anielewicz, the
leader of the Warsaw ghetto
revolt, than live at the mercy of
the slaughterer. That perhaps is
the moral of "Holocaust."
