By FRANK SIMONS
Some six months ago—long
before the name of Adolph
Eichmanh began hitting the
newspaper headlines after a
stillness of some 15 years — a
refugee from the misery that
Eichmann created came to the
office of The Jewish News with
the information that the no-
torious Nazi was still alive.
He would not be pinned down
as to how he knew, but at that
time Nachman
Tevlo, who
now lives at
19130 Hunting-
ton, predicted
that one day
Eichmann
would be cap-
tured.
To Tevlo,
who lived
through a life-
time of de- Tevlo
spair in the concentration camp
of Terezienstadt, it was more
than instinct that told him Eich-
mann was alive. He knew Eich-
mann, the butcher of 6,000,000
Jews, who made Terezienstadt
one of his major projects.
From here were channeled
Jews of all nationalities to the
crematoria of Buchenwald,

The summer vacation period
continues to be a time of in-
tensified activity for the staff
and volunteer members of the
Anti-Defamation League of Bnai
Brith, as complaints and in-
quiries multiply about dis-
criminatory practices employed
by certain resorts.
In a report to Sidney J. Kar-
bel, chairman, and the Michigan
Regional Advisory Board of
ADL, Sol I. Littman, regional
director, pointed to consider-
able work and progress in end-
ing overt resort discrimination.
Littman's report mentioned
several summer spots in Michi-
gan, including the Silver
Birches in Alpena and the
Shady Nook Cabins - of Petos-
key, which have - been referred
to Attorney General Paul L.
Adams for rulings of possible
violation of Michigan's Fair
Accommodations Act.
A lengthy statement is con-
tained in the report on • the
battle between ADL and .toseph
B•chunas of Tabor Farms, in

the other, was lowered into the
freezing water. He retrieved
three minnows for Eichmann,
and his life was secure.
Tevlo has many stories to tell
about Eichmann, including his
schemes to fool the Inter-
national Red Cross which oc-
casionally visited Terezienstadt.
Eichmann had a playground
built and a group of stores.
When the visiting delegation
arrived, there were always
neatly dressed children playing
in the playground and other
prisoners buying food at the
store,
One time, when a Red Cross
mission came unexpectedly
from Switzerland, they found
that no child was playing and
there were even no footprints
to indicate that children ever
played there.
But, according to Tevlo, even
this did not dismay Eichmann,
who explained, "These chil-
dren must be angels to fly
around like that without leaving
a trace behind."
The actor in Eichmann was
demonstrated in yet another
instance, Tevlo says. The
money he had printed to in-
dicate how prosperous his
business was, had a picture

Sodus, and George Selfridge of
the Pottawattamie Resort in
Benton Harbor.
Because the resorts use such
phrases as "our clientele is
Gentile" or "serving a Gentile
clientele," the two resorts have
been refused listings with the
Michigan Tourist Council, which
receives a state subsidy to assist
national promotion of Michigan
resorts.
Recent advertising of Tabor
Farms is "now entirely free of
discriminatory matter," Litt-
man reported, however, "recent
evidence suggests that discrim-
ination itself has not ended."
He referred to a phone call
made to Tabor Farms in April
by a Jewish woman whose
name was readily recognized as
Jewish. She was told that Tabor
Farms was a club and that in
order for the woman to visit,
she would have to be passed on"
by the board of directors.
The ADL office, according to
Littman, is now considering
the advisability of legal action
in the case.
