Horwitz Charges Alleged Croatian Jewish
Committee Distorts Holocaust History Facts

A report in The Jewish
News. June 24. about a com-
mittee formed in New York
to challenge the claims that
Croatian Nationalists were
linked with World War II
Nazis was branded as dis-
torting historic facts by Nor-
man Horwitz, a Detroiter
active in the ranks of survi-
vors from the Nazi era.
Horwitz traveled through
Yugoslavia in a sealed train

that took him to a concen-
tration camp in Italy. He
followed events under Naz-
ism, having survived
thanks to the humane spirit
that marked Italian under-
ground resistance to Fas-
cism.
He had been transported
from Poland by the Nazis.

tion camp. He had met with
many Yugoslav Jews who
depicted the holocaustian
tragedies that resulted in
the demise of many Jew-
ries.
Of the 70.000 Jews in Yu-
goslavia, only 5.000 sur-
vived.

Horwitz came to Detroit
from Italy in 1949 after lib-
eration from the concentra-_

"There were 10.000 Croa-
tian Jews," Horwitz said,
"and they were all mas-

Israelis Unhappily Accept Fiscal Measure

JERUSALEM (JTA)—
The flare-up of anger over
the Israel government's sur-
prise announcement of dras-
tic new fiscal measures sub-
sided into stoic acceptance
of what most Israelis seem
to regard as necessary if
distasteful economic medi-
cine.

a showdown with the Likud
regime at this time.
Members of the Labor-
dominated Histradut Cen-
tral Committee turned
down a proposed warning
strike, but Histadrut will or-
ganize protest meetings dur-
ing working hours at places
of employment all over the
country.

Labor Alignment leaders
in the Knesset and Histra-
drut have adopted a moder-
ate stance and are ob-
viously not inclined toward

Observers said one rea-
son Histadrut is backing
away from a showdown is
the fear that it will have no
support from the Likud

workers who voted in the
Histadrut election on June
21.
Likud polled 28 percent of
that vote and remains a siz-
eable minority within the
trade union federation.
Finance Minister Simha
Ehrlich claimed that he
had invited Histadrut Secre-
tary General Yeruham
Meshel to discuss the fiscal
measures with him last
month in secrecy, but Mesh-
el refused on grounds that

economic plans had to be
treated openly before the en-
tire central committee.
Ehrlich said that was the
reason Histadrut was not in-
formed or consulted in ad-
vance of his announcement.

Most observers appeared
to agree that secrecy was
necessary to prevent the
kind of wild buying sprees
and hoarding that occurred
in the past whenever the
public had advance knowl-
edge of pending price hikes.

U.S. House Begins Hearings Airline May Have Shown Bias
on Anti-Boycott Banking Bill Against Sabbath Observer

WASHINGTON—A

House of Representatives
subcommittee has begun
hearings on a bill contain-
ing anti-boycott legislation
written by Congressman
James J. Blanchard (D-
Mich-.).
The bill, which is de-
signed to increase the feder-
al government's power to
regulate foreign banks
doing business, in this coun-
try, includes an amendment
authored by Blanchard bar-
ring discrimination on the
basis of religion, race, na-
tional origin or sex.
The House Subcommittee
on Financial Institutions,
which is holding the hear-
ings, is expected to approve

the bill in the near future.
The Blanchard amend-
ment not only prohibits fof-
eign banks from discrimi-
nating, but it gives the Fed-
eral Deposit Insurance Cor-
poration tough enforcement
power to issue cease and
desist orders or revoke a
bank's charter if it discrimi-
nates.
Blanchard said that the
legislation is needed be-
cause there have been re-
ports that some domestic
banks were offered deposits
or loans by foreign in-
vestors on the condition

sacred. To speak, therefore
of a Croatian Jewish Com-
mittee is to resort to trav-
esty on truth. There are no
Croatian Jews left to speak
for what had been a thriv-
ing community that was ex-
terminated by the Nazis.
There is something ghoulish
about the report about such
a committee and it may
well be that it is used as a
tool for former Nazis."

"that no member of the
Jewish faith sit on the
bank's board of directors or
control any significant
amount of stock."
In addition to tough en-
forcement power, the Blan-
chard amendment requires
foreign financial institutions
seeking to do business in
the United States to agree
to refrain from any form of
discrimination. In speaking
on behalf of his amendment
on the floor of the House of
Representatives last July,
Blanchard said, "All of us
know that religious discrimi-
nation has no place in the
United States. It's time we
wrote that principle into
law so that it cannot be mis-
interpreted or misunder-
stood."

NEW YORK (JTA)—The
New York State division of
human rights, in a case de-
scribed as having several
unusual aspects, has found
probable cause to believe
that American Airlines dis-
eliminated against a Jew-
ish Sabbath observer, ac-
cording to the National Jew-
ish Commission on Law and
Public Affairs.
Sidney Kwestel, COLPA
president, in announcing
the finding, said the issue
will be scheduled for a for-
mal administrative hearing
by the division. He said the
date had not yet been set.
According to the COLPA
complaint, the Jew, whose
name was withheld, was
employed by the airline as
a cabin service agent from
March, 1974 until Septem-
ber, 1974 when he was laid
off. Kwestel said that he
had worked Saturdays on a
rotating basis with other
cabin attendants. In June of
1976, the airline recalled
him for possible re-employ-
ment.
Offered a position, he told
airline officials he had be-
come a Sabbath observer in
1975 and could no longer
work on Saturdays. COLPA
said the job offer was then
immediately withdrawn on
grounds that one of the air-
line's union contracts re-
quired cabin service agents
to rotate shifts on all days
of the week.

Copter Crash

Blamed on Pilot

TEL AVIV (JTA )—A mili-
tary judge has blamed the
pilot for the crash of a heli-
copter in which 54 Israeli
soldiers were killed May 10.
The judge said that Capt.
Moshe Winter, who also
died in the crash, was fly-
ing lower than permissible
during hours of darkness.

Kwestel said that after
the complaint was filed
with the human rights divi-
sion, the airline claimed it
had sought but failed to ob-
tain a waiver from the
union representing the
cabin service agents.
The airline also offered to
Wive the complainant non-
union jobs but he rejected
them because they had
little relation to his inter-
ests or aptitudes and be-
cause there was little likeli-
hood for advancement,
Kwestel said.-

liane Levy Winn, president

Federation, who returned

sured American and world

tion consisting of World

hen Shalom of New York,

geles, Albert Benatar of
