Help toAged,Indigent Outlined in Report of Jewish Agencies
Volunteers in the Jewish Family
and Children's Service nursing
home project were honored at the
joint annual meeting of the JFCS
and Resettlement Service last week
at the Jewish Center.
Mrs. Morris J. Brandwine, chair-
man of the committee on services
to aging, indicated that the aged
and infirm in nursing homes
would be entertained at special
holiday programs with the assist-
ance of sisterhoods of various con-
Mrs. Annette Bechek, JFCS case-
worker, cited illustrations of how
nursing home residents have been
aided by the visitation program,
whereby volunteers make person-
to-person contact — talking to the
individual resident, reading with
him, bringing food.
Rabbi Leonard Cahan of Adas
Shalom Synagogue has been
chairman of the nursing home
volunteer project during the past
year. Mrs. Max Biber, chairman
of the program committee for the
project, assisted by Mrs. Louis
Barden and Mrs. Oscar Bank, ar-

Qualifies Stand on
Statute of Limitations
Merle Harris, president of JFCS,
highlighted the work of the agency
during the past year, emphasizing
the role that the Jewish Family and
Children's Service played in the
community project, "Operation
Find," following the July riots. The
agency staff helped families locate
missing relatives and, through par-
ticipation in the Interfaith Emer-
gency Center, helped organize the
post-riot emergency services for
riot victims. The agency helped to
deliver food and emergency sup-.
plies to Jewish families living in
the Dexter area, many of whom
were fearful for their lives and
could not do any shopping during
the riot crisis.
In recent months the agency has
sponsored a project of housing re-
location to help a limited number
of these families move into "safer"
areas of Detroit.
Samuel Lerner, director of the
agency, reported that in 1967 the
agency handled 2,089 cases. He
noted there is an increasing aware-
ness in the community of the need
for help with emotional problems
and the readiness of parents to
seek out such help for themselves
and for their children.
He stated that there has been

BONN (JTA)—The president of
the Bundestag, West Germany's
lower house, who in the past called
for abolition of the statute of
limitations that would bar the
prosecution of Nazi war criminals
after Dec. 31, 1969, has apparently
had a change of heart on the
Dr. E u g e n Gerstenmaier, a
leader of the Christian Democratic
Party, told the Jewish Telegraphic
Agency in an interview that he
thought the statute should not
apply in cases of murder. As for
its outright abolition, he said one
had to take into account the senti-
ment for an amnesty.
hi any event, the West German
leader said, the statute is still a
subject for discussion. Dr. Ger-
stenmaier told a World Jewish
Congress meeting in Brussels two
years ago that he favored aboli-
tion. Now he apparently prefers
to wait and see how the majority
Walter Scheel, president of the
rightist Free Democratic Party,
told the JTA at the press confer-
ence that his party opposed aboli-
tion of the statute two years ago
and would not now change its
attitude. He remarked that it was
somewhat late for new investiga-
tions of Nazi war criminals.
Scheel also offered the opinion
that it would be a good thing if
the extreme right-wing National
Democratic Part y, often de-
scribed as neo-Nazi, won seats
in the Bundestag in next year's
elections. According to Scheel,
the NPD would then have to
account for its activities and the
German people would realize
-'that the party has nothing to
Minister of Justice Gustav Heine-
mann has argued that the statute
should be abolished and the Social
Democrats will probably seek a
debate on this issue in the Bun-
destag (lower house) later this
Those advocating an extension
of the period before the statute
goes into effect, or its outright
abolition, point out that many Nazi
war criminals are still unpunished
and even unknown. Each new war
crimes trial turns up new evidence
implicating war criminals who
have hitherto escaped detection,
provided by the agency to families
with children where the mother is
physically or emotionally unable
to provide the needed care. It has
meant that many children who
might otherwise have been placed
in foster homes or institutions for
brief or long periods were able to
stay in their own homes.
During 1967, 63 children were in
placement, of whom 30 were in
Twenty five unmarried mothers
were served, eight children were
in foster homes, thirteen in resi-
dential treatment facilities and
seven attending special schools.
Mrs. Samuel J. Caplan, presi-
dent of Resettlement Service,
noted that in 1967 this agency
served 24 refugee families and
processed 238 restitution and in-
demnification claims against the
German government. Clients re-
ceived awards totaling $139,923
from the German government for
health and property losses in-
flicted by the Nazis. Mrs. Caplan
cited several recent arrivals
from Poland, Hungary and
