Anti-Nazi Meetings Mark 30th Anniversary of Hitler's Rise

BERLIN, (JTA)—The day of
Hitler's coming to power in
Germany 30 years ago—on Jan.
30, 1933—was marked through-
out Germany with anti-Nazi
meetings and with an impres-
sive memorial gathering ar-
ranged by the Jewish commu-
nity of West Berlin in memory
of the Jews annihilated by the
Addressing a rally arranged
by the Social Democratic party,

West B e r l i n Mayor Willy
Brandt warned Germans to be
careful that "the past should
not be a future." Similar warn-
ings were voiced by speakers at
a mass meeting here arranged
by the International Union of
Former Resistance Fighters and
Former Deportees. In Frank-
furt, a public demonstration
was held at the university there,
arranged by members of vari-
ous anti-Nazi movements.

JDC to Give $1,950,000 to ORT
for Training Prograins Overseas


The Joint Distribution Com-
mittee will provide $1,950,000
during 1963 toward the over-
seas vocational training pro-
gram of ORT, the Organization
for Rehabilitation t h r o u g h
Training, it was announced by
officials of both organizations.
The grant will help finance
technical education and eco-
nomic rehabilitation activities
of ORT in Europe, Israel, North
Africa and Iran. More than
40,000 persons are expected to
receive such assistance in these
and other areas during the corn-
ing year.
The allocation for 1963 rep-
resents an increase of $65,000
over the previous year, to be
used primarily in France to ex-
' patid vocational services for
newly arrived Algerian and
other North African refugees.
ORT trade schools, apprentice
programs for youth, and special
_ courses for adults in France
have been greatly enlarged to
meet the needs of the refugees.

However, the full effect of
the influx of the 100,000 Alge-
rian Jewish newscomers is ex-
pected to be reflected in vastly
increased need for ORT training
during the next few months as

is the principal agency afford-
ing vocational education to
Jews overseas.

Nahum Goldmann, president of
the World Jewish Congress, who
is currently visting here, is-
sued the following message:
"Jan. 30 marks a dark anni-
versary in human history—the
advent to power 30 years ago
of Adolf Hitler. That was a day
of infamy which should be re-
membered in sorrow because of
the past. It should be remem-
bered too as a lesson for the
future. Hitler came to power as
a German Chancellor clothed
With the legality of constitu-
tional processes which he used
to destroy the foundations of
German democracy and to
launch a war against humanity
with the aim of world domina-
tion by the Nazis.
"That war led to the destruc-
tion of tens of millions of
human beings. For us Jews, who
lost 6,000,000 of our people at
the hands of the Nazi mur-
derers, the memory of the Hit-
ler years overshadows the worst
period of Jewish persecution.
"On this hideous anniversary,
we feel bound to draw the
world's attention to the fact
that evil men in many countries,
Hitler's disciples and imitators,
are again conspiring on an in-
ternational scale against demo-
cratic society and freedom of
mankind. Like Hitler and his
henchmen, they make the Jews
the first target of their aim to
suppress human rights and
fundamental freedoms. -
"The world should not forget
that Hitler made no secret of
his plans and his ambitions, or
