'Between You
. . and Me'

(Copyright 1967, JTA Inc.)

JDC MARTYRS: The tragic death of. Charles H. Jordan, execu-

tive vice-chairman of the Joint Distribution Committee, who mysteri-
ously vanished in Prague and whose body was found later in a river
there, adds another martyr to the list of the JDC high officials who
lost their lives while standing in the very forefront of Jewish relief
work . . . The first two martyrs were Rabbi Bernard Cantor and the
scholarly Israel Friedlander . . . They came from the United States
for the JDC in 1920 to Poland and proceeded into the Polish-occupied
part of the Ukraine to organize relief work for the Jews there . . .
They were brutally murdered, in July 1920, when their automobile
was attacked on a highway in the Ukraine . . . The motive of the
murder was considered robbery, since they were robbed of the large
amount of JDC relief money which they carried in cash . . . The
murderers, however, were never discovered by the Polish military
authorities who were in charge of the occupied territory where the
tragedy occurred . . . Another JDC martyr was my dear friend Isaac
Giterman, head of JDC operations in Poland from the years imme-
diately after World War I until the Nazi occupation of Poland in 1939.
. . . When the Nazi army entered Poland in World War II, Giterman
was in Lithuania organizing JDC relief there . . . He could have
remained in Lithuania, but he felt it his duty to return to Warsaw
to be with the Jews in Poland, even though Warsaw was already in
the hands of the Nazis . . . The vessel on which he sailed from
Lithuania on his way to occupied Poland was intercepted by a Nazi
military ship . . . Upon learning of his identity, the Nazis took him
off the vessel, brought him to Warsaw and shot him there in front
of his home . . . The United States was not at war with Germany at
that time, but no American intervention helped to save his life . . .
Later, the Nazis also killed Leo Neustadt, who was the man next to
Giterman in the JDC office in Poland . . . A third high official of the
JDC in Poland, David Guzik, survived the Nazis, having lived in hiding
after the killing of Giterman and Neustadt . . . Fortunate as he was
to escape death from Nazi hands, he was killed in an airplane crash
soon after the war, when he came out from Poland to report per-
sonally to the JDC Europan headquarters in Paris on the postwar
needs of the remnants of Polish Jewry . . . The plane crashed over
Czechoslovakian territory.

PEN PORTRAIT: Charles Jordan was a very likeable person,
highly respected by all who knew him . . . he liked people, he liked
his work and he liked to travel . . . One could see him one day in
Geneva, the next day in Jerusalem, a day later in Rome, and within
the next few days in a number of other capitals of the world . .
Although he made his home recently in New York, he never spent
a long time in New York .. . His duties took him constantly to
various countries where changes of conditions in Jewish life required
constant adaptation of JDC work to the changed conditions . . . We
were intimate friends and he never hesitated to discuss with me
developments concerning his work, his plans, his trips . . . As chair-
man of the American Council of Voluntary Agencies for Foreign
Service, he recently made a very interesting trip to South Vietnam
and, after a 10-day study, wrote an impressive confidential report
on voluntary agency assistance there . . . Last year we were to-
gether at a private Seder in New York, but this year he told me
confidentially long before Passover that he would observe the Seder
in Romania . . . He was happy to reveal to me that Romania had
agreed to permit the Jewish communities there to receive aid from
the JDC and that this would be made public during the Passover
week . . . He was also happy to relate to me the fact, which is known
only to few, that a fund in his honor had been presented recently to
the Columbia University School of Social Work—his alma mater—
which will be used to send American social work students with a
faculty coordinator to Colombia, Latin America . . . The fund had
been raised by his Jewish and non-Jewish colleagues in Geneva,
active in international social work, on the occasion of his 25 years
of work in the field of social service . . . He modestly sought to
prevent any publicity of this demonstration of high regard for him
on the part of the international colony of leaders in social service.

Mr. Muni made his Broadway debut
Developer of 'The Pill'
in "We Americans" in 1926.
Mr. Muni won motion picture
acclaim as Tony Camonte in the
1932 film "Sarface: The Shame of
the Nation." The role was that of
a scarred, snarling gangster. The
same year he portrayed James Al-
len, a fugitive from a southern
chain gang who achieved fame
and resptct as a Chicago mining
engineer, only to be returned to
the chain gang for his original
crime of stealing $6. Considered
by Mr. Muni as his best portrayal.
the depiction of the violence and
cruelty in the film led to prison
investigations and reform.
Other films included the title
role in "The Life of Emile Zola,"
"Juarez," "Black Fury," "A Song
to Remember" and "We Are Not
Alone." In 1936 he won the Mo-
tion Picture Academy of Arts and

years," he said, "but can't tell
you what acting is or how it is
done. I know I have not tried to
learn the 'art' of acting, whatever
that may be."
His last film role was that of a
dedicated general practitioner in
"The Last Angry Man" in 1958.
Mr. Muni's stage appearances
included "Counselor at Law" and
"Key Largo." The apex of his
career was considered to be his
stage portrayal of Henry Drum-
mond, a character based on Clar-
ence Darrow, in the 1955 dramati-
zation of the Scopes monkey trial,
"Inherit the Wind." As usual, he
did complex research on Darrow
and the trial and critics called his
performance "superb," "brilliant"
and "inspired." He was awarded

Schectman's is a novel deserv-

a work of note that first was print-

steeped in the "Ani maarnin", the

faith. It is a narrative of the land-
lord and the Jewish tenant who
must be on guard and who faces
life's constant dangers. "Erev" is
replete with dramatic fervor.
