Wiesenthal, one of the sur-
vivors of the Nazi death
camps, has dedicated his
life to documenting-the gen-
ocide that occurred in
Europe under Hitler and
hunting down the per-
petrators of that- crime.
He was born on Dec. 31,
1908 in what is now the Lvov
Oblast section of the
Ukraine. He graduated
from the gymnasium in 1928
and applied for admission to

the Polytechnic Institute in
Lvov. He was turned down
because of quota restric-
tions on Jewish students.
He went instead to the
Technical University - of
Prague, from which he
received his degree in archi-
tectural engineering in 1932.

Wiesenthal escaped the
Ostbahn Camp in October

Israelis Getting More Divorces

JERUSALEM (JTA)—
The marriage business is in
a slump but divorce is
booming-in Israel according
to the 1976 "Statistical
Abstract" published by the
Central bureau of Statistics
Sunday.

About 29,500 marraiges
were performed last year
compared to 32.300 the year
before, a decline of nine

percent. But divorces were
up more than nine percent
in the same period and the
few-weddings-more-
divorces trend is expected
to continue this year.
Married couples are also
having fewer children.
According to the published
figures, the average Israeli
family dropped from 3.9 to
3.7 persons during the past
12 years.

tion of the inmates there.
Very few of the prisoners
survived the westward trek
and the series of winter
marches from concentration
camp to concentration
camp. which ended at Mau-
thausen in upper Austria.
As soon as his health was
sufficiently restored, Wie-
senthal began gathering and
preparing evidence of Nazi
atrocities for the War
Crimes Section of the U.S.
Army.
In 1954, the office in Linz,
Austria was closed and its
files given to the Yad
Vashem archives in Israel,
except for one — the dossier
on Adolf Eichmann, chief of
the Gestapo's Jewish
department, who had super-
vised the implementation of
the "final solution."
Encouraged by his suc-
cess in the Eichmann case,
Wiesenthal re-opened the
Jewish Documentation Cen-
ter, this time in Vienna, and
concentrated exclusively on
hunting war criminals.

Wiesenthal's book of
memories "The Murderers
Among Us," was published
in 1967. In 1973 his "Sails of
Hope" was published. As
founder and head of the
Jewish Documentation Cen-
ter he has ferreted out
nearly 1,000 war criminals.
There is no charge for
either lecture and the public
is invited.
