Mechanical Trades Unit Confident I Dramatic Story
of Survivor Told
of $1,100,000 Goal in Campaign
in 'Yellow Star'

"The Yellow Star" is a dra-
matic account of a young boy's
experiences under the Nazis,
his and his family's sufferings
during the war, his survival
from the terrors of Auschwitz.
S. B. Unsdorfer, author of
this story, which was published
by Thomas Yoseloff (11 E. 36th,
N.Y. 16), was a mere youngster
of 14 when the war broke out.
It was in Bratislava, where his
father was a respected rabbi.
The expulsions and the trans-
fer of Jews to concentration
camps began, but Rabbi Uns-
dorfer consistently comforted
his people, gave them courage,
refused to leave them. He could
have had a visa to go to the
United States, but he stood by
his people.
Only the author of "The Yel-
low Star" survived the on-
slaught and the humiliations.
His entire family perished.
Their sufferings began when
they first were moved to Sered.
Then they were moved to
Auschwitz.
Important names of the arch
criminals pass in review in this
story: Mengele, Brunner and
others.

who returned here after a visit
to Israel, where they inspected
Israel's aviation facilities. The
five officers, who said they were
"highly impressed" with Israeli
aviation progress, are members
of the Turkish Air Patrol Asso-

a group representing Israel's
Gadna Avir, a paramilitary air
patrol, visited this country. This
is the first time that Israeli and
Turkish military delegations have
exchanged visits.
