• All four delegate assem-
bly meetings should be de-
voted exclusively to issues
of direct concern to the
Jewish community, espe-
cially the airing of con-
troversial matters for advi-
sory and educational
purposes, to encourage
community participation.
(Perhaps one general dis-
cussion should be "Direc-
tion and Priorities in the
Jewish Community.")
• Coordinate various func-
tions of the community, par-
ticularly the Zionist organi-
zations that constitute a
significant element. The
failure to do this was sadly
illustrated with regards to
Israel Independence Day
the past two years.
• Implement the ex-
pressed wish of the assem-
bly for a constitutional
amendment giving the dele-
gates a minimum degree of
choice of nominees.
• Appoint a parlia-
mentarian who will rule on
technical questions and ac-
curately monitor the min-
utes to avoid selective
"editing."
• Verify prevailing atti-
tudes and opinions of dele-
gates by a properly phrased
questionnaire, unsigned,

Children Must
Never Forget

grocer, born in Poland; Lib-
by Sneolander, age 30, born
in Hanover; Caroline Sneo-
lander, age 6, born in Ohio;
Alexander Sneolander, age
6, born in Ohio; and Rachel
Sneolander, age 1, born in
Michigan.
I tend to believe that the
Sneolanders were Jewish,

as I have never heard of a
Pole whose last name ended
in "lander" and given name
was Aaron. Usually Poles
gave their children either
New Testament or Slavic
names, but not names like
Rebecca or Rachel. Should
this assumption prove cor-

Editor, The Jewish News:
Friends often wonder why
it is so important to me that
my children shall .remem-
ber, and even identify with,
the millions of Jewish men
and women and children
who suffered at the hands of
the Nazis. -

I am sure most of you
were among the many mil-
lions who watched "Roots"
on television a few months
ago. I found the perform-
ance quite moving. I felt
that the film successfully
addressed black suffering
as an individual case of hu-
man suffering, such that I,
as a Jew, was able to identi-
fy with black suffering as an
instance of the same human
suffering forced upon the
Jewish people throughout
the ages.
Alex Haley might also
have_ been speaking for the
Jewish people when he pre-
sented the view, that to
know one's history is to
know one's self.
The concentration camp
is my history. Those who
suffered it shall be honored.
But let us not only honor
those who were executed.
Let us bestow honor equally
on those who have been
forced to live with the taste
of death on their lips —Mein
Zeydeh, Mein Mameh, Mein
Tateh — their numbers are
many! Men and women,
young and old, you and I!
All determined to survive
and tell their stories so that
their children, and their
children's children, might
also tell their stories.

Stories of labor-camp
workers, barely alive, per-
forming at miraculous ca-
pacity. Stories of the hun-
gry, frightened child,
frantically dodging the
same machinegun bullets
that beat his mother into the
ground. All determined to
survive!

Ask me why it is so im-
portant to me that my chil-
dren remember, and identi-
fy with, those who suffered
the Nazi terror? This is
why: So that my children
may honor them, as I honor
them, and so that, for gen-
rations to come, we, as a
People, stand warned —
united — and alert!
