THE MEN, THE PEOPLE, THE GUNS OF WARSAW GHETTO REVOLT

On April 21, a World Jewish Congress delegation will arrive in Warsaw to
participate in ceremonies on the 20th anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto Upris-
ing. The WJC leaders will visit the site of the bitter struggle that was led by
Mordechai Anielewicz (top, left), who rallied Ghetto Jews (below, right)
to withstand the Nazi might. Equipped with a handful of obsolete arms (left),
the Ghetto martyrs fought a gallant but losing battle that left the Ghetto a
blazing ruins, as the other pictures show.

Polish Documents, Album, Portray
Warsaw Ghetto Heroism, Suffering u.

Horrifying in their reminders
of the great tragedy that was
imposed upon Polish Jewry by
the Nazis, an album of 541 photo-
graphs, exposing the crimes that
were committed from 1939 to
1945, has been issued under the
title "Meczenstwo, Walka, Zag-
lada Zydow w Polsce"—"Agony,
Struggle and Destruction of Po-
lish Jewry."
An English translation of the
text has been issued by the
Polonia Publishing House with
the permission of the publishing
house of the Polish Ministry of
National Defense.
Accompanying the large album
and the pamphlet with the trans-
lation is another pamphlet pub-
lished in Poznan, "Operation
Reinhard — Mass Extermination
of the Jewish Population in Po-
land" — the title being based
on the name of the head of the
Chief Office for the Security of
the Reich (RSHA), Reinhard
Heydrich, who was killed by
Czech patriots in 1942.
Dr. Bernard Mark, director of
the Jewish Historical Institute
in Warsaw, Adam Rutkowski and
Prof. Tadeusz Kotarhinski are
the coauthors of articles accom-
panying the album.
In a prefatory note, Prof.
Kotarbinski states: "This is a
mournful record. One stands
over this array of memories
as over a tomb, and by the
graveside the only posture
which becomes the eternal re-
pose of the Dead, is an abso-
lute silence . . . We cannot
allow what is past to be for-
gotten. We want to enshrine
these buried memories in re-
demption of the yearnings of
those who died in despair with
only an imperishable hope that

they would be remembered ...
May man always behave to
man in a way deserving of the
respect of the respect-worthy."
I The album and the pamphlets
offer data relating to the mass
murders, the ghetto conditions,
the arm bands and the badges
that were forced upon the im-
prisoned.
The photographs show in all
their horrors the plunders, the
forced labor, the deportations to
the death camps, the extermina-
tions, the profanation of religion.
There are hundreds of
I photographs showing the con-
! ditions in the Warsaw Ghetto,
the battle scars, the weapons
that were used, the heroes and
the heroines, the documents
relating to that period, the
underground newspapers, the
Nazi commanders who conduct-
ed the wholesale massacres
of Jews and others in Poland.
In the translated brochure, in
the section dealing with the
ghetto heroism, is incorporated
in the song of the Jewish fight-
ers and partisans:
Never say that there is only
death for you.
Though leaden skies may be
concealing days of blue,
Because the hour we have
hungered for is near;
Beneath our tread the earth
shall tremble, we are here!
This song was written with
our blood and not with lead;
It's not a song that summer
birds sing overhead,
It was a people among
toppling barricades,
That sang this song of ours
with pistols and grenades.
Written by Hirsh Glik, the
song appears in a translation
from the Yiddish.

Jewish Students Ask
UN to Intervene for
Jews Jailed in Russia

NOTICE OF PUBLICATION
MEETING OF THE MEMBERSHIP

(Direct JTA Teletype Wire to
The Jewish News)

GENEVA—The World Asso-
ciation of Jewish Students ap-
pealed to the United Nations
Commission on Human Rights
here Tuesday to intervene for
release of the Jews arrested last
week in the Soviet Union for
baking matzohs for Passover.
The student group made the
appeal in a cable to the com-
mission which is currently in
session here. The students also
protested against the ban on
Matzoh-baking in Russia. A
similar protest was sent to the
commission by P. Philipson,
president of the Jewish Com-
munity of Brussels.

The Polish-published volumes
add to the record indicting the
Germans for t h e i r cruelties.
They are timely accounts of the
Warsaw Ghetto battle and serve
at this time, on the 20th anni-
versary of the ghetto revolt, to
keep alive the memory of the
heroes and to remind all about
the horrors imposed upon man-
kind by a brutal people.
