`Holocaust' Text a Must for Jewish, Public Schools

The Holocaust—mass
murder of six million Jews.
Can we, as Jews, ever for-
get? Can we, as Jews, ever
let our children forget?
To perpetuate the knowl-
edge of this period, author
Bea - Stadtler has published
a textbook, "The Holocaust
— A History of Courage and
Resistance" (Behrman
House, Inc.).

cisions about underground
resistance."
Another positive feature
of the book, besides its com-
pleteness, is that Mrs. Stad-
tler relates it directly to
children for whom it was
written. She recounts the
slaughter of children "just
like you." In the chapter on
Theresienstadt (Terezin), in
which she reprints the poe-
try left by the younger in-
mates, she writes:
"These are just two of
the poems of children who
were taken from their par-
ents, sent to Terezin, and
then to Auschwitz to be
murdered. These children
drew and wrote poetry just
like you. They liked pretty
things and springtime;
they had the same hopes
and dreams as you."
Kristallnacht, the yellow
badge, the untermenschen
label and a complete de-
scription, in- easy to • under-
stand language, of Hitler's
final solution all are in-
cluded. There even is a pas-
sage of the Nazis' duping of
Red Cross officials at There-
sienstadt, the "model con-
centration camp."
Among the heroes are the
righteous gentiles and the
Danes for their "Danish
Rescue." The illegal immi-
gration, Aliya Bet, and the
youth aliya movements also
are detailed. Even the role
of Nazi hunter Simon Wie-
senthal, himself an inmate,
is included.

The book is a must for
every Hebrew school and
Jewish child. More impor-
tantly, it should be used as a
supplement in secular
school history classes so
that public school teachers
will not pass over this most
important chapter in Jewish
and world history.
—Heidi Press

The textbook, with a fore-
word , by Yehuda Bauer,
professor of Holocaust stud-
ies at Hebrew University of
Jerusalem's institute of con-
temporary Jewry, covers the
entire Holocaust periodiand
some of its aftermath, from
the rise of Adolf Hitler to
the trial and execution of
Adolf Eichmann.
The book is geared for
an upper elementary-age
reading group, youth age
10-12, and each of the ea-
sy-to-read chapters is fol- -
lowed by a series of
thought questions, such as
the following:
"On the night of Nov. 9,
1938 almost all the syn-
agogues in Germany were
destroyed; the sacred books
of Judaism were burned —
Torah, Talmud, prayer-
books and Codes. Why did
Hitler and the Nazis Who
helped him to plan the
`Final Solution' choose to
strike at buildings and
books first?"
Despite the omission of
the names of many of Hit-
ler's top henchmen and
most of the death camps, ex-
cept for the most horrible,
the book is a complete ac-
count of Jewish resistance
to the. Nazi terror and the
Jewish resistors to that ter-
ror.
Among those briefly de-
scribed in the Stadtler

book are Hannah Senesh,
Henrietta Szold, Rabbi
Leo Baeck, Mordechai

formed. -
The ship was finally -re-
floated at high tide after the
Saudis dumped their cargo
