THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

Exhibit to Show American Soldiers As Liberators

By BEN G. FRANK

(Copyright 1979, JTA, Inc.)

NEW YORK — "I thank
the U.S.. Army for saving
my life. I have been three
years in the concentration
camp and was very ill."
Those were the words
former camp inmate Jack
Pinto scrawled on a letter in
a U.S. Army -hospital. Pinto
expressed a story often over-
looked; that of the Ameri-
can GI who liberated the
concentration camps which
murdered six million Jews.
The story is now being told
in a moving exhibit of
photographs and documents
from the oral history arc-
hives of the Center for
Holocaust Studies,
'Documentation and Re-
search.
For nearly five years, the
Center, located in Brooklyn,
N.Y., sought material,
wrote letters, researched
pamphlets, interviewed GIs
and cooperated with the
U.S. Army. The result is 54
pictures and letters on 18
large panels — which in the
words of Dr. Yaffa Eliach,
_directer of the center, is the
first attempt to relate the
Holocaust from an Ameri-
can point of view. "What did
the liberator see from the
outside when he entered the
camps is the story told here;
not the account from the
victim inside; nor from the
oppressor, but from the view

Leader Training
Project Created

.

NEW YORK — The .
American Association for
-Jewish Education and
Council of Jewish Federa-
tions have developed a lead-
ership training program to
assist communal groups
with decision-making re-
sponsibilities in areas of
local Jewish education.
The program is designed
for use by federation boards,
leadership development
groups and budgeting and
allocation committees; by
boards of local central
bureaus of Jewish educa-
tion; and by boards of con-
gregations, day and com-
munal schools.
The materials relate data
regarding enrollment, pro-
fessional manpower, financ-
ing and educational trends;
describe various modes and
structures of formal and in-
formal Jewish education;
and furnish guidelines for
the study of Focal educa-
tional systems, the role of
lay and professional leader-
ship in strengthening
Jewish education and
means through which work-
ing partnerships can be
achieved between local edu-
cational agencies.

Golda's Plan

JERUSALEM (ZINS) —
Labor Party leader Israel
Galili claims the late Golda
Meir was shocked by the
Begin government's plan to
abandon the Sinai settle-
ments and bring auton-
omous rule to the West
Bank.
Galili says Golda was
ready to announce her own
peace plan at the time of her
death.

of the outsider."
It is for this reason most of
the material in the exhibit
is original:
• A photo of an actual
lampshade made from the
skin of victims.
• A photo of an American
soldier distributing ciga-
rettes at Dachau.
• A photo of religious

services by an American
chaplain rabbi shortly after
liberation.
• A photo of the capturing
of SS guards at Dachau.
• A photo with a caption:
"By order of the American
occupation forces, the local
population is forced to view
the Nazi atrocities."
• A photo of U.S. Army

Chaplain Rabbi Samson
Goldstein conducting burial
services for the dead of Flos-
senburg Concentration
Camp.
The exhibit will be shown
to commemorate Yom
Hashoa from April 23
through April 27 at the
Center for Holocaust
Studies in Brooklyn.
