Rabbi Lawton Honored as Legend at Reunion

Rabbi Irwin Lawton be-
came a veritable legend in
the Detroit Jewish commu-
nity. He had a Hebrew
school of his own and
taught hundreds of Jewish
children. He was a Hebrew
teacher for 40 years before
his retirement about 20
years ago when he and his
family settled in California.
He was known as a tough
teacher who did not spare
the rod. But his pupils
loved him for his sincerity
and his devotion to Eretz
Yisrael. That love was evi-
denced on June 16 when, on
his brief visit here with his
wife, he was given a recep-
tion by 40 of his former
pupils. It was held at the
. home of Stuart Allen in
West Bloomfield.
Harry Gordon, one of his
pupils, speaking at the re-
ception, summed up the af-
fection for Rabbi Lawton:
"You were my teacher
35 years ago," Gordon said,
"and you inspired us. You
were the first Zionist we
had met. You instilled in us
a love for Eretz Yisrael.
That devotion remains with
us and we honor you for
it."
Prominent Detroiters are
in the ranks of the Lawton
pupils, and included among
those who attended the re-
ception were five who -serv-
ed as presidents of syna-
gogues in Greater Detroit.

pupils and their friends at
the Israel Bond dinner he at-
tended at Cong. Bnai Moshe
on June 15.
Rabbi Lawton has an in-
teresting background. Born
in Pinsk, he came to Pales-
tine at the age of 9, re-
turned to Russia to receive
his training in the Petro-
grad Technical Railroad In-
stitute, returned to Pales-
tine to serve as a captain in
the Jewish Legion. He was
urged to come to Detroit by
the late Rabbi E. Aishish-
kin and that's how he com-
menced his teaching career
here.

RABBI LAWTON _

They are: Robert Stein-
berg, Shaarey Zedek; Jack
Kutnick, Bnai Moshe;
Stuart Allen, Bnai Israel of
Pontiac; Michael Must,
Bnai David; and Harry Gor-
don, Mishkan Israel.
Dr. Morton Demak, a
Bnai Moshe vice president,
was also a Lawton student.
One of Rabbi Lawton's
pupils also studied for the
rabbinate. He is Rabbi
Gerry Goldfrey of the teach-
ing staff of Yeshivath Beth
Yehuda and he was present
at the June 16 reception.
Rabbi Lawton was given
an ovation by his former

ried out in connection with
the Menten trial.
Menten, who served with
a Nazi SS unit in the Lem-
berg region in the summer
of 1941, claimed that the evi-
dence was faked and that
the human remains were
placed there by Soviet au-
thorities. But the Dutch cor-
respondent accompanying
the delegation reported that
there was no sign that the
grave ever had been tam-
pered with. He said that
was proven by trees grow-
ing on the site.

Menten Sues Dutch Journalist,
Mass Grave Linked to Ex-Nazi

AMSTERDAM (JTA)—
Pieter Menten, the million-
aire Dutch art dealer on
trial for the mass murders
of Jews and others in Po-
land during World War II,
has filed a libel suit against
the Dutch-Jewish journalist
whose articles last year ex-
posed his Nazi activities.
Menten, 78, is asking pay-
ment of 10 million guilders
by Hans Koop, editor of the
weekly, Accent, and is also
seeking "compassionate
damage."
Menten went on trial ear-
lier this year after fleeing
Holland to excape arrest.
He was captured in Switzer-
land and , returned to Dutch
jurisdiction. He is charged
with responsibility for and
participation in the killings
of nearly 2,000 persons,
mostly Jews, in Uryce and
Podhorodze villages in the
Lemberg region of Poland,
now Russian territory.
The crimes occurred in
July and August, 1941, when
Menten served as an officer
in an SS unit in that region.
He claimed in his suit
that he has suffered dam-
age to his reputation, ang-
uish and severe financial
losses as a result of Koop's
articles. Menten was unsuc-
cessful in a recent petition
to the President of the Am-
sterdam District Court to
bar the distribution of
Koop's book on his case.
Meanwhile, a delegation
from the Amsterdam Pub-
lic Prosecutor's Office is in
the Lemberg region to ex-
hume a mass grave contain-
ing the remains of persons
allegedly killed by Menten.
The exhumation was car-

dained with Semiha as a
youth in Palestine after
serving in the Jewish Le-
gion, at the Rabbi Meir
Baal Haness Yeshiva.
