Hococaust Victims Listed in Hall of Names

Yad Vashem dedicated its Hall of Names recently, containing millions of pages of testimony about the deaths of the
Six Million during the Nazi Holocaust. The names of some three million Holocaust victims have been registered by
relatives in the Hall of Names. Yad Vashem officials are asking Jews throughout the world to register the names of
relatives who perished in the Holocaust.

`On Your may Out Pick Me Up Too'

(Editor's note: The follow-
ing editorial appeared in
the non-sectarian Colorado
Springs Gazette Telegraph
and was written by a non-
Jew, William Alkan. It has
been re-printed in several
church publications and
Jewish newspapers.)
" 'Jews, go home!' Well
now, this is nothing new.
Never in the past have you
taken this gentle suggestion
to move on. But heaven for-

One reason why ornamen-

Jews is that since fighting
was so despised, verbalized
hostility came to be corre-
spondingly prized. Con-
sider: If you break my jaw,
you have merely demon-
strated the power of your
muscle—which an animal,
ignoramus or barbarian can
do. If, instead, you hurl a
juicy execration at me, you
act like a man, not a beast;
you use the wits God gave
you – instead of fists, feet,
teeth, claws or fangs..
