WA Medals for Three Great Allied Generals

Three World War II military chiefs who led the Allied Armies to victory in Europe were awarded gold
medallions at the recent Annual National Conference of the United Jewish Appeal commemorating the
20th anniversary of V-E Day and the consequent liberation of survivors of Nazism from concentration
camps. Shown at the New York Hilton Hotel are (from left) General Pierre Joseph Koenig, who was
commander-in-chief of the Free French Forces; Great Britain's Field Marshal, the Earl Alexander of
Tunis; and General Lucius D. Clay, former commander-in-chief of the U. S. Armed Forces in Europe,
who accepted the medal for his convalescing war-time friend, former President Dwight David Eisen-
hower, General of the Army of the United States and Supreme Commander of the Allied Expedition-
ary Force. At right is Max M. Fisher of Detroit, re-elected general chairman of the United Jewish Ap-
peal at the conference, Dec. 10-12. Earlier on the Saturday of the Conference, Lord Alexander and
General Koenig, accompanied by Fisher, also flew to Washington, to visit General Eisenhower at the
Walter Reed Hospital.

Remarkable Interest in Scriptures Is Shown
in Rembrandt Collection of 550 Drawings

A rare facsimile edition of 550
drawings has just made its appear-
ance in two volumes under the
title "Drawings of Rernbrandt."
Produced by Dover Publications
(180 Varick, NY 14), they present
a most impressive selection of
drawings by Rembrandt's pupils
and followers. The volumes con-
tain supplementary material, in-
cluding a concordance between
the numbers of thepresent edition
and those of the catalogues of
Benesch, Valentiner and Hofstede
de Groot and an introduction and
commentary by Prof. Seymour
Slive. The explanatory notes under
all drawings, some quite lengthy,
are most important and valuable,
and the lists of plates are recorded
This collection once again calls
attention to Rembrandt's interest
in Jews, his devotion to the Bible,
his numerous biblical interpreta-
tions. There are so many drawings
based on biblical themes, that
the possessors of these two volumes
will be amazed by their vastness.
Rembrandt was known to
have been deeply interested in
ews. Thus we have among his
awings one dated 1655 entitled
"Two Jews and Some Dutch
People on a Street."
Also, of a general nature and of
special Jewish interest are three
other drawings — "Three Jews
Conversing" "Nine People in a
Synagogue Behind a Low Wall,"
with a question mark after syna-
gogue, and "Two Standing Jews,
Between Their Feet the Inverted
Head of a Third."
But specifically the interest in
these two volumes centers in the
great artist's biblical works.
He did many on the Abrahamic
theme and some are given more
than one interpretation. Thus,
"Abraham Kneeling Before God
the Father and Two Angels" has
three interpretative drawings.
There are two differing ideas of
"The Sacrifice of Abraham."
Others with the Abraham, Sarah
and Hagar theme include:
Two ideas of "The Dismissal of
Hagar at the Door of Abraham's
House," another entitled simply
"The Dismissal of Hagar," and
these: God Appearing to Abraham,
God Announces His Covenant to
Abraham, Abraham Dismissing

Telling His Dreams, with a ques-
tion mark indicating that this sub-
ject is not very clear.
The Ruth and Boaz theme is

U.S. Calls Off Public Auction
of Rockwell Property After Outcry

U.S. Internal Revenue Service an-
nounced that it has called off a
public auction of anti-Semitic ma.
terial and property of the Ameri-
can Nazi Party.
The IRS action indefinitely
deferring the auction, which had
been scheduled for next week,
followed Congressional criticism
and also the application by Nazi
leader George Rockwell for an
injunction to block the IRS sale.
Argument on the injunction was
scheduled to be heard by federal
court in Alexandria, Va., Dec. 29
before Judge Oren Lewis.
The Nazi property was seized
in an IRS raid Dec. 3 for nonpay-
ment of taxes. Among the confis-
cated goods are swastikas, arm-
bands, weapons, a large picture
of Adolf Hitler, addressograph
nameplates of Nazi sympathizers,
and other such Nazi paraphernalia
as Rockwell had assembled over
a period of years. An auction was
announced, according to IRS pro-
cedure, to recover the sums owed
the government.

Hagar and Ishmael, Hagar by the
Fountain on the Way to Shur,
Sarah Presenting Hagar to Abra-
ham, Sarah Complaining of Hagar
to Abraham, The Angel Appearing
to Hagar in the Wilderness.
Other themes have more than
one interpretation. There are
four showing "David Taking
Leave of Jonathon." Three show
"Isaac Blessing Jacob." There are
two ideas of "The Judgement of
Solomon." Two show "Nathan

Admonishing David" and two of
"Esau Selling His Birthright to

The Jacob and Joseph and his
brothers themes are extensive.
Among the titles are: The Meeting
of Jacob and Laban, Joseph's
Brothers Requesting Benjamin
From Their Father, Jacob's Dream,
Joseph Waiting on His Two Fellow
Prisoners, Jacob and Rachel Lis-
tening to Account of Joseph's
Dreams, The Angel Appearing to
Joseph in His Dream, Jacob's
Dream With Two Angels, Joseph
Kneeling Before Pharaoh, Joseph
Divested of His Multicolored Coat,
Joseph Telling His Dreams, The
Angel Appearing to Joseph in a
Dream, The Departure of Benja-
min for Egypt, Joseph Interpreting
the Prisoners' DreNns, Joseph

In his introduction Prof. Slive
discusses Rembrandt's achieve-
ment as a draughtsman and pro-
vides a history of the appreciation
of the drawings from Rembrandt's
time until our own. The commen-
taries he has written for each of
the 550 drawings incorporate the
conclusions of modern Rembrandt
scholars and connoisseurs on prob-
lems of attribution, dating and
identification of the subjects, as
well as the results of his own re-
search on the drawings. He also
indicates which drawings are now
considered the work of Rem-
brandt's pupils, copyists or for-
gers; these have been included to
indicate the impact of his work on
members of his circle and to show
the difference in quality between
an original by the master and one
done by a follower or forger. In
addition, Prof. Slive provides the
present or last known owner of
each drawing, its dimensions, me-
dium, and bibliographical material.
Special concordances are also in-
cluded for students interested in
comparing the comments made in
this new edition with those in
other important catalogues of Rem-
brandt's drawings. _
