UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. —
One word, painted in -blood-red
against a night-black back,
ground screamed • starkly here
this week, jogging the con-
science of the world. The dra-
matic message: "Racism !"
The warning . appears on- the
cover of the latest issue of "The
UNESCO Courier," the monthly
publication of the United Na-
tions Educational, Scientific and
Cultural Organization. Below
the alarming headline, is this
message:
"The Executive Board of
UNESCO, noting with deep
concern the recrudescence of
racial hatred, - anti-Semi
and discrimination
ch
have occurred
various
regions in mtiefit months, par-
ticularly in the Union of
South Africa; recalling the
terms of the Universal Dec
ration of Human Rights
0,
the Co _ nst - ution of U
rim-
which condemn all
ination against any
son on
grounds of- race, • igion or
e govern-
sex — calls upo
ments of all
ber States
to take all st
in their pow-
er to comb
very form of
ination, anti-
racial disc
Semitism, v ence and hatred
which may ccur within their
territories
What fo ws inside the cov-
ers of this sue consists of 34
pages of t t and the kind o
photos whi
should make eve
an Eichman it back a mome
with the c
*ction that the
world does
account
morals, ethics a
humanity.
Item: An editorial beginning:
"Racism has been called - the
social cancer of our time. It
gnaws away slowly and insid-
iously until it invades the whole
organism of society and erupts
in violence and death."
Item: An article entitled,
"Race, Prejudice and Educa-
tion" which states inter alia:
"The Jew may distinguish him-
self in an American university,
but certain student fraternities
will be closed to him." And
this: . "Perhaps an extreme
case of difficulty relates to the
Jewish people. They certainly
do not constitute a race in any
proper sense . . . The 'Jewish
race' is a myth. There are peo-
pled called Jews, and these
people are sometimes recog-
nizable as such, but that does
not make them into a race."
Or, in another article, entitled
"Ignorance: Reservoir of Racial
Prejudice;" by Dr. Cyril Bibby,
a British scholar, the habit of
identifying any scoundrel by
his race or religion is hit —
and hit hard.
Item: "A Look at Modern
Anti-Semitism," by Leon Polia-
kov, examines the entire con,
temporary • gamut of anti-Semi-
tism — "political," "scientific,"
or just plain mercenary. Here
one reads about certain inter-
national machinations of anti-
Semites working out of Cairo
and Argentina — and from
headquarters in such an en-
lightened country as Sweden.
There's a great deal more of
textual material worthy of read-
ing—and disseminating. But the
pictures ! Here are some self-
explanatory captions:
"Bewildered and terrified,
with S.S. submachine guns
pointed at him, this little boy
is marching with other War-
saw Jewi to death in a Nazi
extermination camp."
"Rounded up like cattle in
1942, Jewish people in Nazi-
occupied Paris were herded
into the. Velodrome d'Hiver,
a vast sport arena, to await
deportation in sealed trains
`to the east' . . . Similar
round-ups were made in all
the countries of Europe."
One photo depicts the moun-

tains of boots and shoes at Ausch-
witz, bearing "silent witness to
the extermination of 6,000,000
Jews in S.S. death camps." An-
other picture shows the front gate
to the Auschwitz camp (which is
still being maintained as a mu-
seum of horror by the Polish
Government) with its sign of mac-
abre irony: "Arbeit Machf Frei"—
Labor Brings Freedom. And there
are still other photo reproduc-
tions — including one of Anne
Frank and a page from her
diary.

Israel " Unaligned,"
Golda Melt. States

JERUSALEM, (JTA) — Israel
belongs to the "non-aligned" na-
tions of the world, Foreign Minis-
ter • Golda Meir declared here,
asserting that there are four
groups of nations in the world
now, and not three as some
analysts hold.
The three groups identified by
many people, she said, are the
Western bloc, aligned with NATO;,
the Soviet group around the War-
saw Pact; and the neutralist bloc.
Israel, she said, is "not auto-
matically neutralist," deciding its
position on world affairs always
"on the merits c the issue." But,
Mrs. Meir stated, there is an
"unaligned" bloc, as identified
recently at the United Nations
by V. K. Krishna Menon, India's
Defense Minister. "Israel," she
said, "also belongs to that group,
since she is not bound either to
NATO or to the Warsaw Pact."

AN APPEAL TO JEWISH ORGANIZATIONS

To respect our Sacred Heritage and to implement locally the resolutions of most major
national Jewish organizations, namely;

that_

ALL

Jewish functions be in full accord with the

Jewish tradition regarding Sabbath observance and Kashruth.

We in Detroit are fortunate in having adequate Kosher facilities; and upon demand they

can be expanded. Let us maintain our pride and self-respect.
