\-7 Tina Levitan's History of Jewish
Hospitals Enhances Social Services

7-

Tina Levitan, whose Hebrew and
English books have attracted wide
attention and whose story of the
Jewish Nobel Prize winners in
"The Laureates" was of special
interest when it was published
three years ago, has turned her
attention to another field: that of
health.
Her newest work, "Islands of
Compassion," published by Twayne
(31 Union Sq., NY 3), is a history
of New York's Jewish hospitals.
While it is devoted to New
York's health institutions, it is a
valuable compilation of data that
will be of interest to all who are
concerned about the Jewish hos-
pital movement and to doctors and
laymen who are seeking informa-
tion about the progress that has
been made in various areas of
health improvement.
What makes this volume espe-
cially important is the informa-
tion it provides about research,
the rise of many Jewish
physicians in the medical pro-
fession, their gifts to humanity
and their services to their eorn-
munity.
The 13 voluntary health insti-
tutions in New York described
here become factors of great im-
portance in the over-all field of
Jewish social services.
Commencing with New York's
first Jewish hosiptal, Mount Sinai,
Miss Levitan views Montefiore in
a chapter she calls "Beyond Tra-
ditional Medicine"; Beth Israel as
"Citadel of Healing"; Lebanon as
"My Brother's Keeper."
"Medicine Marches On" is the
manner in which she subtitles the
Brooklyn Jewish Hospital; sim-
ilarly she describes the other hos-
pitals—Hospital for Joint Diseses,
Jewish Memorial Hospital, Beth
El Hospital, Bronx Hospital, Hill-
side Hospital, Jewish Chronic
Disease Hospital. Maimonides and
Long Island Hospitals — with ap-
pellations that describe their great
gifts to humanity.

Who passed away June

always remembered by
her family.

The information about hospital
directors, laymen who have helped
build the vast health redeeming
agencies, doctors and research
men, is replete in this excellent
history which may well be con-
sidered a great gift to Jewish
social service and to the Jewish
community of New York and
America.

Jews in Germany Rap
Anti-Semitic Incidents

DUSSELDORF (JTA)—The Cen-
tral Council of Jews in Germany
deplored the deteriorating situa-
tion in West Germany since the
beginning of this year in which a
number of notorious Nazis have
managed to escape detention and
thus avoiding trial for their war
crimes.
Incidents which have given rise
to anxiety among members of the
Jewish community included the
desecration of a Jewish cemetery
in Cologne in April and the dis-
tribution of anti-Semitic propa-
ganda being conducted from var-
ious quarters, although, it was
pointed out, not encouraged by
the authorities in any way.
The Council expressed regret
that alit efforts to meet with Chan-
cellor Ludwig Erhard on these
problems have thus far been un-
successful and there is no sign of
such a meeting taking place in the
near future.
