Doctor's Holocaust Memoir a Painful Historical Account

By ALLEN A. WARSEN

"The Miracles versus
Tyranny" (Philisophical
Library) by Dr. Izaak
Goldberg is composed of five
parts comprising the years
1941-1945. Each part is pre-
ceded by a brief historical
sketch. Thus the year 1941
(6/22-12/31) contains a de-
scription of the Hitler-
Stalin Pact and the reason
for it: "Stalin was very
much afraid of Hitler, espe-
cially after the German vic-
tories over France, Holland,
Belgium, Norway in 1940
and Yugoslavia and Greece
in the spring of 1941. He de-
livered raw materials, food,
oil to Germany in order to
avoid a German attack."

But Stalin, the author
states, "failed to take into
consideration one trait of
Hitler's personality,
namely his destructive
mind, megalomania, and
the schizophrenic mentality

French-Iraq
Arms Deal Set?

PARIS (JTA) — France
and Iraq are discussing an
arms agreement providing
for the sale of French-made
missiles, helicopters and
possibly combat planes. The
negotiations for this mas-
sive sale of French
hardware entered a final
phase during French De-
fense Minister Yvon
Bourges' recent trip to
Baghdad.
Sources in Paris say Fr-
ance will supply Iraq with a
variety of Crotale missles,
ground-to-air, ground-to-
ground and ground-to-sea.
The French-made missile
is especially deadly for low
flying aircraft and has an
exceptional accuracy level
for near-approach planes.

impressively and at
length the extermination
camps of Treblinka, Au-
schwitz and Birkenau.

He reminds us of the re-
volt at Treblinka that
took place on Aug. 2,

1943. On that day, the
prisoners who had ac-
cumulated weapons ob-
tained from the camp
armory surreptitiously
revolted against the
camp authorities killing
25 Germans and 60 Uk-

rainian guards. How-
ever, of the 1,000 rebelli-
ous prisoners only 600
managed to escape to a
nearby forest. There,
they were surrounded
and decimated by armed
bands of anti-Semitic
Poles and Ukrainians, as
well as by Germans.
Only 40 escapees re-
mained alive.
Had it not been for these
survivors, the world
wouldn't have known the
story of the heroic uprising
at Treblinka.
"The Miracles versus
Tyranny" is an effective ac-
count of a Holocaust sur-
vivor. It includes his post-
war experiences and care-

False and brazen fools:
"THE SIX MILLIONS HAVE NOT PERISHED!"
Cowards,
I, the Great Champion of Christendom,
I, the Great Fuehrer of the Mighty Rage,
I, a clown wielding a paper sword?
Hypocrites and traitors,
Out of my mouth
Gushed cataracts of blood,
Out of the breasts of my people
Broke storms of jubilation,
AND THE SIX MILLIONS DROWNED!
Hallelujah! Shouted the sons of Jesus,
Allahu-Akbar! Shouted the sons of Allah,
AND THE SIX MILLIONS PERISHED!

NEW YORK (JTA) —
Representatives of a wide
range of Jewish organiza-
tions met with officials of
the New York City police
department in what was
termed an unprecedented
effort by the police officials
and the Jewish community
leaders to educate each
other about their special
problems and to explore
areas of mutual concern.
The meeting, herd at
police headquarters, was
called the first of its kind in
the city's history by the
Jewish Community Rela-
tions Council of New York.
Peggy Tishman, chair-
man of the police liaison
committee, said the confer-
ence developed from a series
of recent discussions bet-
ween the liaison committee
and police officials dealing
with crime in Jewish
•neighborhoods, declining
Jewish representation on
the city police force and re-
lated issues.
