Lapid Spells Out Zionist Values,
George G. Fox,
Israel's Validity on Tour of U. S. Joan Sill to Wed

Joseph Lapid, a member of
the editorial staff of Maariv,
evening Hebrew newspaper pub-
lished in Tel Aviv, here for a
week's work and study on the
Detroit Free Press as part of his
tour of American cities and his
studies with staffs of Knight
Newspapers, stated here before
his departure for his Israel that
he was deeply impressed with
Detroit's Jewish cultural efforts
and the local interest in Israel.
During his stay here, Lapid
was the guest of Harry Golden
Jr., a member of the Free Press
editorial staff. Golden's father,
the eminent author, of Char-
lotte, N. C., was one of the spon-
sors of Lapid's U. S. visit. Lapid
also covered the Syrian-Israel
discussion at the UN for Maariv.
A survivor from Nazism—the
Nazis came to his native city of
Budapest when he was 12-
Lapid said that those who speak
disparagingly of the survivors
and their "resistance" are un-
aware of the lack of information
that was available, of the sud-

sized the importance of the
Zionist movement and the va-
lidity of Israel as the homeland
of Jews who had to escape in-
dignities from Christians and
Moslems. "Those who know and
understand what had happened
under Nazism will appreciate
why we who are in Israel will
not live under any other flag ; "
Lapid said. "Israel spells our
protest against the failure of
Christians to help us during the
Nazi holocaust. It is the symbol
