"The achievements, by you
and by us, is the greatest suc-
cess story in history," Dafni
said. "No atomic bomb has
been invented which can kill
only Jews. No longer will the
Jew be killed separately. We
now share the fate of the entire
world. There will be no more
extermination camps."
He described the continuing
needs—to assure Israel's ability
to defend herself, to provide
an education for children of
newcomers, to assure that new
settlers will have proper medi-
cal care and housing.
Dafni protested against the
use of the term "gimmick" as
an education for children of
drives and he said he would
rather not depend on a crisis to
raise funds. He emphasized that
this is a privileged generation
that has been given the glory
of witnessing the emergence of
Jewish political independence,
and he commended the role
played in Israel's rebirth by the
Jews of America.
He expressed confidence that
Detroit Jewry will remain in
the forefront of communities
that are sharing in the great
reconstruction effort in Israel.
Phillip Stollman, in brief
marks prior to the closing of
the meeting, admonished his
fellow workers that "the eyes
and ears of our people every-
where are upon us." He de-
scribed the great needs in
Israel and the responsibility
to share in fulfilling them
and he announced, in behalf
of himself and his brother
Max, a gift of $50,000 to this
year's campaign.
Rabbi Haim Donin, this year's
chairman of the synagogues and
schools section of the Allied
Jewish Campaign, gave the in-
vocation at the dinner.
Report; by division chairmen
were called by the co-chairmen
of the pre-campaign section,

man of the Women's Division,

German Sailors Fined
for Insult to Jews at
Seder in Haifa Home

man sailors, who broke into a
home in Haifa on Passover Eve

with shouts of "Heil Hitler,"
were allowed to return to their
ship after being arrested, and
sentenced to fines of $500 each
and a week in jail.
Dieter Kielbase of Lubeck
and Foiyerdirks of Hameln had
their fines paid by the agent of
the ship, the Annemarie Heiger,
which sailed later. The sailors
had been in jail since the inci-
The sailors were convicted of
entering the home and demand-
ing a drink. When they were
refused, they shouted anti - Jew-
ish insults until they were ar-
rested. They told the court they
thought the house was a bar.

Jews in. Pinsk testified on the
issue of what happened to SS
men if they refused to obey
commands for torture and mur-
Dr. Manfred Roeder, a for-
mer German- military judge,
said that commands had to be
obeyed without consideration as
to their criminal nature. He
said it would have been im-
possible for a man with the
rank of squadron commander
in a cavalry regiment to re-
ject an order handed down
from Hitler to carry out exe-
He said that it would have
been up to the generals to pro-
tect their subordinates from
being given criminal commands.
Dr. Hans Globke, who quit
under fire as a key adviser
to Chancellor Konrad Ade-
nauer, also was a witness.
He said he first learned of
the shootings in the East at
the beginning of the inva-
sion of Russia. He said that
in discussions with other of-
ficials in Berlin at the time,
the unanimous opinion had
been expressed that the man
who did not carry out an or-
der to shoot must reckon
with being shot himself.
Globke, who was then an
official in the Interior Minis-
try, added that he was not aware
of any cases where this had
happened. He also testified
that he knew of a ministry

Dr. Hans Buchheim, of the
Munich Institute of Contem-
porary History, said that SS
men had plenty of opportu-
nities to dodge carrying out or-
ders to shoot civilians, but that
most of them lacked the cour-
age to refuse to obey such
Meanwhile, at Frankfurt, a
vivid description of the man-
ner in which one SS officer,
with pistol in hand, drove a
dozen Jewish children to their
deaths in the Birkenau gas
ovens in 1943, was given to
the court here.
The trial continues against
22 Auschwitz-Birkenau officers,
accused of murdering many of
the 4 million Jews executed at
the death factory.
Monday's principal witness
was Ludwig Woerl, who said
he had been transferred from
another camp to the infamous
Auschwitz Arrest Bloc 11.
There, one day, he testified,
"a dozen little Jewish girls,
aged 3 to 11, came up to me,
begged me to save them from
the gas chambers. They said
they were strong and could
work and didn't want to die. I
couldn't help them. There was
Oswald Kaduk, with gun in
hand. That murderer Kaduk
drove them away to the gas
Woerl pointed his fingers
at Kaduk, one of the defend-
ants. Kaduk leaped from his

tators yelled "Beat him to
death!" It took presiding
Justice Hans Hofmeyer sev-
eral minutes to bring order
back to the court room.
Woerl's most sensational tes-
timony concerned Kaduk; he
also implicated two others
among the defendants, Joseph
Klehr and Wilhelm Boger. He
told of a girl prisoner who was
shot to death in a room with
doors closed. "I didn't see
Boger shoot her," he said, "but
he was in there and no one
else besides the girl. I heard
two shots. The girl was dead."
He told the court that Boger

As for Klehr, Woerl said he
had seen records showing that
Klehr had killed 250 or 300
persons. "Add some zeros to
those figures, and you will have
a more correct figure," he said.
