camp inmates, and de-
lineates their suffering,
struggle for survival, and
readjustment after liber-
ation.
A survivor portrayed in
the book, Jacob Korman,
now in his 70s, was mar-
ried and a businessman in
Warsaw before the Nazi
invasion of Poland in
1939. In the ghetto he was
a kitchen inspector whose
"job had been to observe
closely the way in which
the soup ration was doled
out." At Maidanek he was
a "horse." There the
"horses" (prisoners)
hauled all kinds of cargo,
even corpses of women
and children,- murdered
by SS men and horse-
whipped to death by
Hermine Braunsteiner
Ryan, the vicekomman-
dant of the women's camp
at Maidanek. Once
for watching her kill two
women, he was given 25
lashes.
At that murderess' de-
portation hearings in the
courtroom of the United
States Immigration and
Naturalization Service in
New York, Korman was
the chief U.S. witness
against Mrs. Ryan. Among
others, he testified that he
saw her hit an old woman
and a child so many times
until both woman and child
were on the ground. "Af-
terwards he and the other
horses had to carry away
the corpses."
Incidentally, the mur-
deress voluntarily gave
up her U.S. citizenship in
1971; and in 1973 at the
request of the West Ger-
man government she was
extradited to Germany
where she is being tried
for the atrocities she had
committed.
Froin Maidanek Kor-
man was transferred to
Treblinka, then to Au-
schwitz, Mauthausen and
Bergen-Belsen.
After liberation, Kor-
man, whose first wife
perished in a concentra-
tion camp, remarried. In
1951, the couple and their
child that was born to
them in Germany, immig-
rated to the United
States.
Each story related in
"New Lives" is full of
drama. A good example is
the story of Paula who kept
hidden her five-year-old
daughter in the slave labor
camp, Skrzyske. There the
child several times es-
caped death thanks to Pau-
la's ingenuity and courage.
Also owing to Paula's
alertness and daring, her
12-year-old niece, Serale,
a slave laborer in the
same camp, escaped
death time and again.
Now, Paula's 37-year-
old daughter is happily
married, is, devoted to her
mother, and resides in

Nazi Kappler's
Illness Worsens

ROME — Reports indi-
cate that the condition of
cancer-stricken Nazi war
criminal Herbert Kappler
has worsened and his
death is a matter of days.
Kappler, 69, who or-
dered and lead a slaying
of 335 Romans in 1944 was
granted freedom by a mil-
itary court last month.

Queens. Her niece,
Serale, became a scholar
absorbed in art studies.
A good example of
Jewish resistance to Nazi
tyranny and inhumanity
is the story of Rember-
tow, a town near Warsaw.
There the Jews worked in
a munitions factory until
the Nazis decided to
round them up and
transport them to con-
centration camps.
Korman went to Re-
mbertow before his cap-
ture by the Nazis
and got there just after the
round-up. He saw there
hair scattered everywhere
— "a velt mit her" (a world
of hair).
He soon found out
where the hair came
from. He was told that the
Jews resisted and refused
to be transported. Many
were shot for "trying to
pull the guns" from the
guards. The women, too,
resisted. They "had bit-
ten the noses off the

guards," and had torn the
hair out of their heads.
After the battle, the dead,
including several dead
guards "filled the streets,
and their hands — the
hands of the women —
were full of hair."
"New Lives" is a book of

heroism and tragedy,
tenderness and compas-
sion. Its author, Dorothy
Rabinowitz has contri-
buted articles to "Com-
mentary" and other
magazines. She is the co-
author, with Yedida
Nelson, of "Home Life."
