U.S. Proposals
for M.E. Peace

NEW YORK — U.S. pro-
posals for a "non-belliger-
ency" agreement in the Mi-
deast are "a cover-up for a
unilateral withdrawal by
Israel" from administered
territories, according to
Shmuel Tamir, a member of
the opposition bloc in Is-
rael's Knesset.
Dr. Tamir, chairman of
the Free Center Party
which is aligned with Likud,
spoke before a luncheon ses-
sion of the New York re-
gional board of the Anti-
Defamation League of Bnai
Brith.
Describing non-belliger-
ency as "a condition of activ-
ity which is something short
of war but very far from
peace," Dr. Tamir warned
that "it would be the gravest
mistake if Israel gives up
peace as her aim."

second section of Yad Vashem's Warsaw Ghetto Uprising monument shows
This second
ghetto residents being led to the extermination camp. The first section, showing the
ghetto fighers, was executied in haut relief, while the second section is in bas relief. Both
sections are bronze casts of the originals, which make up the two sides of the ghetto
uprising monument unveiled in Warsaw in 1948. They are the work of sculptor Natan
Rapoport, who conceived the idea when he heard of the revolt while working in Siberia
after escaping from the Nazis in Poland. At Yad Vashem the two sculptures are set into
a wall in the new assembly square, whose red brick is reminiscent of the actual ghetto
wall. Both bronze casts are a gift of New York businessman Leon Jolson.

Israel and U.S. Observances
Mark Holocaust Anniversary

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
Israel observed two minutes
of silence Tuesday in mem-
ory of the victims of the
Holocaust. Traffic came to a
standstill at 8 a.m. as air
raid sirens wailed. People in
offices and factories stopped
work, pedestrians and mo-
torists halted in the streets
and all stood in silent re-
membrance of the six mil-
lion Jews who perished at
Nazi hands.
President Ephraim Kat-
zir, addressing a memorial
assembly at the Yad
Vashem marking the 33rd
anniversary of the begin-
ning of the Warsaw Ghetto
uprising, declared that
while the Nazis did not suc-
ceed in their aim to destroy
"not only the Jews but the
very memory of Judaism,
the hatred that burned in
the heart of that Satan
burns still, and a large part
of mankind has not learned
the lesson of the Holocaust."
Stating that Jews dare
not ignore this fact, Katzir
called on all Jews to
strengthen the state of Is-
rael, "the bastion of the
Jewish people, to prevent
another Holocaust."
Premier Yitzhak Rabin,
speaking at a memorial
ceremony at Tel Yitzhak,
also warned that racist
voices are once again
preaching hatred of the
Jews.
Tel Aviv and Jerusalem
had an atmosphere of
mourning Monday night.
Movies, theaters and cafes
were closed, Restaurants
dimmed their lights and
on13., a few neon signs re-

mained on. Flags flew at
half-mast all over Israel. A
special memorial service
was held at the Tel Aviv ce-
metery where Holocaust
survivors and delegations
from Jewish communities
destroyed by the Nazis kin-
dled memorial fires.
Special parades were held
at army camps and other
military installations. Films
of the Holocaust era were
shown in high schools and
elementary schools and
there were special memorial
meetings.
In New York, more than
3,500 persons attended the
33rd annual commemora-
tion of the Warsaw Ghetto
Uprising and the memorial
service for the victims of the
Holocaust at Temple Eman-
u-El. They were urged by
speaker after speaker not to
forget the six million Jews
who were murdered by the

Nazis lest it happens again.
"We are the spokesmen
of the dead," Rabbi Alex-
ander M. Schindler, chair-
man of the Conference of
Presidents of Major Amer-
ican Jewish Organiza-
tions, declared. "It is our
solemn duty to be their
witnesses."
The theme of remember-
ing was carried out in the
emblem of the Warsaw
Ghetto Resistance Organi-,
zation (WAGRO) which
sponsors the annual memo-
rial in conjunction with
major Jewish organizations.
It said "remember" in He-
brew, Yiddish and English.
, Detroit's commemoration
was marked by the memo-
rial academy on Sunday
sponsored by Shaarit Hap-
laytah — the Survivors of
the Holocaust — and Cong.
Bnai Moshe and the Jewish
Community Council.
