`Forgotten Jew' Remembered
by Community on Passover

Seder night — when families
gather around the table to recount
a time-honored story of freedom
and joy — would be a joyless
night to many in the Detroit area,
were it not for the old truism:
Jews care for their own.
Tonight, close to 700 needy
families will observe the first
night of Passover with food sup-
plied through Mo'os Hitim. This

On the eve of the Festival of
Liberation, Detroiter Morton Hack
recalls another year of liberation-
1945-t-when Jews came out of hid-
ing in Europe. Hack was serving
in the Air Force, stationed at Nice,
France. ,
Passover 1945 found Hack at the
home of Austrian refugee Prof.
Kurt Coleman and the remnants
of his family who had escaped the
Nazi onslaught first in Austria,
then in Rbme, then in Nice itself.
Coleman's sister Daisy was chief
personnel clerk for the Special Ser-
vices Division of the U.S. Riviera
Recreational Area in Nice.
Early in the war Prof. Coleman
had established a school in Rome
for refugee Jewish girls whose par-
ents feared the rising Nazi menace
in Germany. When Mussolini adopt
ed the Hitler doctrine, the family
was forced to flee to Nice.
"Kurt and his brother had hid-
den in the attic room for a solid
year. One day the Gestapo men
appeared, and the father was
added to the ranks of the slave

A few months later, _the younger
brother decided he could no long-

Coleman remained in the attic,
bolstered,by prayers and his loved
ones: his wife, infant daughter,
mother, younger brothers and sis-

cellar with all the windows care-
fully blacked out. "We recited and
sang softly lest our voices be heard
beyond the room," said Coleman.
"Our food was poor, contrived from

ersatz. We listened with one ear
for the seder and the other ear
straining for Gestapo, whose foot-
steps could foretell our doom.
"Little did we know," said Prof.
Coleman to his U.S. Air Force
guest "as we recited the words,

we shall be free!' that this year
