Harry M. Shtilman, president
of the Mo'os Hitim Organization
of Detroit, has issued the an-
nual appeal for funds to aid
needy on Passover.
"We aim that no Jewish
family or individual in Detroit
shall be without the necessities
for the traditional Passover
celebration," his appeal states.

nearly 2,000 people were aided
with Mo'os Hitim funds. He
states that his organization is

Can You Testify?
From time to time, the World
Jewish Congress issues appeals
for witnesses to come forward to
testify against a Nazi criminal
or criminals. In recent months
these appeals have become more
frequent, due primarily to the
fact that the activities of the
German prosecuting authorities
are geared to the statute of limi-
tations which might shield many
of Hitler's hatchet men; it ex-
pires in 1965.
West German public prosecu-
tors and the Central Office for
the Investigation of War Crimi-
nals in Ludwigsburg are pres-
ently carrying out about 500 in-
vestigations, involving thousands
of Nazis, mostly medium and
small fry but also a number of
bigwigs. Many of them lived in
anonymity, under aliases, some-
times with the connivance of
their fellow citizens. They hoped
that this would guarantee their
life-long safety from punishment
for the hideous crimes in which
The investigations cover not
only Poland, the graveyard of
more than three million Euro-
pean Jews, but also the Baltic
countries, the Soviet Union, Hun-
gary, Czechoslovakia, Italy,
France, and even Tunisia.
Faced by a major handicap in
their efforts to find evidence and
witnesses, the Germah prosecu-
tors and the Central Office turn
to the World Jewish Congress
to use its world-wide network of
offices in locating Nazi victims
able and willing to testify.
So thorough was the Hitlerite
action that frequently no wit-
nesses are left to tell the tale.
Out of the • death camp of Chel-
mno, for instance, where hun-
dreds of thousands of Jews per-
ished, only four escaped. They
responded to the World Jewish
Congress appeal to give evi-
dence. In many instances only
a handful, sometimes only single
survivors, are available.
If you survived Hitler's hell,
or if you know someone who
survived, and you read in these
columns that witnesses are re-
quired, we hope that you will
respond, if you can provide evi
dente that may facilitate justice.
