Max Biber, secretary of the
newly-formed "Committee for
Center Sabbath Closing," issued
a statement reporting on the
progress of the committee's
work.
Biber said that "the forma-
tion of a 'Committee of 50 Lead-
ers' is just about completed;"
that the aim is to enlist mem-
bers in the committee to make
it representative of all segments
in the community and to keep
Detroit Jewry fully informed on
its activities.
The executive committee, Bi-
ber reported, last Friday and
again twice on Sunday, con-
ferred with Center and Federa-
tion leaders and is now asking
for a meeting with the Center
and Federation boards.
Stating that "true democracy
must protect any group, even a
minority,- against any vital
hurt," Biber said the new com-
mittee appreciates the existing
financial situation at the Center
and "the concern of those who
desire the convenience of the
Center, but weighed against the
positive hurt to a large part of
the community we must ask
that the Center be closed on the
Sabbath."
(Mr. and Mrs. tJoseph H.
Deutch, 18067 Santa Barbara,
writing to The Jewish News,
jointly, on the Center issue,
state that they are Center char-
ter members, that they use its
facilities regularly, and appeal
for restoration of "peace and
dignity for the Detroit Jewish
community in the eyes of our
children." They write: "Neither
the pleasures nor the problems
justify the violation of the
Sabbath by an institution sup-
ported by the Jewish commun
ity.")

Deplcires Catholics' Role
in Jewish Rescue Efforts

Editor, The Jewish News:
Your report on Pius XII and
the- rescue of Jews during the
war is a long overdue correc-
tion of the historical record.
When Pius XII died, the Ameri-
can Jewish Congress and other
Jewish organizations outbid one
another in fulsomepraise for
his ,efforts • to save Jews. Yet
your article aptly describes the
hesitancy and the half-hearted-
ness with which Pius XII inter-
vened for Italian Jewry; and
even more tragic was the well-
documented role which he, and
the local Catholic hierarchy,
played in connection with the
extermination of Hungarian and
Slovakian Jewry.
On Purim 1942 the first Jew-
ish transport left Slovakia.
Fully- aware of their impending
fate, all the Rabbis of Slovakia
signed a petition to the Pope
asking for his intervention with
the Slovakian premier, Father
Tiso. At the cost of 300,000
krones the petition was smug-
gled to the Vatican --and for
another few thousand krones
the Slovakian minister of edu-
cation shortly informed the
Rabbis of the Pope's prompt
reaction. It was clear and to
the point: a letter to Tiso ex,
pressed the Pope's regret about
the expulsion of the Jews and
stressed that "under no circum-
stances may baptized Jews be
expelled." Father Tiso com-
plied: an official decree ex-
empted baptized Jews from ex-
pulsion to Auschwitz.
The initiator of the particu-
lar rescue effort was Rabbi
Michael Ber Weissmandel, often
mentioned at the Eichmann
trial as one of the leaders of
the Slovakian Jewish under-
ground. In his memoirs, "Min
Hametzar", Rabbi Weissmandel
reports on a number of other
efforts to interest the Hungarian
Catholic hierarchy in the fate
of the Jews. Nothing came
of them, thanks to the callous-
