Keatington WW II War
Crimes Museum to Close

By CHARLOTTE DUBIN
On April 1, two weeks be-
for the anniversary of the
Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, the
sign will come down from
the World War II War
Crimes Museum in Lake
Orion. It will mark the end
of a private venture unique
in this country.
Built with the savings an d
energy of fireman Stanle y
Bozich, the museum repre
sented a one-man campaig n
to expose the evils of racis m
and extremism.
In a span of four years
he had exhibited docu
ments, uniforms, photograph s
valued at thousands o
dollars. Some 15- to 20;00 0
visitors, many of them
schoolchildren, heard hi
taped talk on the Nazi er a
and came away with a ne w
understanding of the depth
to which man can descend
Bozich said that mountin g
costs and insufficient spac e
and help made the closin g
necessary. To cut expenses
he and his wife had move
to the small apartment up
stairs from the museum, lo
cated in Keatington Antiqu e
Village. But even the cost o f
gas to take him from th e
museum to his job added t 0
the financial burden, and th e
50 cent admission charge di d
not offset the rising costs
Bozich could no longer ac
quire items to add to th e
collection, he said.
Besides, with- the 50-6 0
hours he spends at the fire
hall. he could not afford th e
additional 35 hours at th e
museum, plus the hours o f
research it required.
Now the 25 manikins, wear
ing uniforms of the Nazi
regime, will go into the attic
of his brother's home, and
the documents will go into
large trunks.
Bozich never could quite
understand why there wasn't
greater interest from the
Jewish community, although
he admitted that the location
may have deterred some
from making the trek out
1-75 to Lake Orion.
But he also suspected that
there may have been some
distrust. "They probably
wondered why I, a Gentile,
was doing it. I simply want-
ed to show the net result of
political extremism a n d
r acism."
In that four years, Bozich
1 earned much about human
n ature, he said. "For one
t hing, Americans have a
t endency to forget. But one
t hing is sure, no one ever
1 eft with any criticism of the
museum."
Bozich went out of his way
t o -avoid a side show of
h orrors, keeping the graphic
h istory lesson as tasteful as
possible.
He said he has some 40 to
5 0 letters from teachers and
p rofessors, commending him
f or his efforts, and he
g uessed that 30 per cent of
t he school groups were Jew-
sh.
Two-hundred girls from a
p arochial high school re-
q uired 'an all-day visit be-
C ause Bozich could take only
2 0 at a time through the
mall exhibit area.
There were many items he
w as unable to show be-
ause of lack of available

space. Of the 25 manikins he
acquired, there was room for
only 20. The other five stood
in the Bozich apartment.
Bozich said that, despite
the closing, he will continue
to collect war relics. He add-
ed that he would be pleased
to see some organization
lease the museum and run it.
Despite its untimely de-
mise, the museum was an
experience Bozich wouldn't
trade, he said. "Lots of
young people benefited; it
made it worthwhile."
In the month remaining,
Bozich will show the collec-
tion to groups and indivi-
duals. For information, call
391-0404. The museum can be
reached via 1-75, to Joslyn
Rd., turn right for three
miles to the Keatington An-
tique Village sign. Hours are
10 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesday
through Saturday; and noon-
5 p.m. Sunday.

Farah Boycott Ends;
Workers to Unionize

NEW YORK — More than
4,000 workers at the Farah
Co., a manufacturer of men's
and boys' slacks, ended a
bitter 19-month strike and
boycott after winning their
demand for representation
by the Amalgamated Cloth-
ing Workers of America
(ACWA).
The boycott, supported in
a letter to synagogues around
the country by the Board of
Rabbis of Southern Cali-
fornia, was initiated in May
1972 when several wgrkers
at a plant • in San Antonio
were fired for union organ-
izing.

The distinctions separating
the social classes are false;
in the last analysis they rest
on force.—Albert Einstein.

Latin America Study Mission Is Planned

NEW YORK — A study
mission set up for March 8-
26 to five Latin American
nations has been organized
by the National Jewish Wel-
fare Board (JWB) for a
group of North American
Jewish Community Center
leaders.
The study mission, planned
by JWB's world service
committee, is in response to
invitations from Jewish com-
munity leaders in Argentina,
Brazil, Uruguay, Panama
and Mexico.
The purpose of the mission
is to familiarize Jewish com-
munal leader s from the
United States and Canada
with problems and programs
of Jewish communities in
Buenos Aires, Sao Paulo, Rio
de .7 a ne i r o, Montevideo,

Panama City and Mexico
City.
It is also designed to
strengthen the ties binding
Jewish communities in the
Western Hemisphere to each
other and to Israel, and to
make Latin America a part
of the International scene and
to serve the social and cul-
tural needs of world Jewry
through Jewish community
centers.

On February 21, 1974, May Maine Potato Futures closed at a price
of $16.30 CWT. What makes this price especially impressive is that
eight months ago (June 29, 1973) May Maines were $5.94 CWT..
thereby -making potatoes one of the few commodities to increase
in price by over 100% (A $5,100.00 PER CONTRACT ADVANCE).
What can we expect to see in the future?
