New Volume Deals With 'Children of the Holocaust'

How did the Holocaust af-
fect the children of that
tragic era?
Are the young who were
affected by the horrors and
their family experiences
able to withstand the
nightmares?
Helen Epstein inter-
viewed sons and daughters
of survivors and compiled
their views in one of the
most impressive works yet
published on the subject. It
has just been issued by G.P.
Putnam's Sons under the ti-
tle, "Children of the
Holocaust."

KC Elects J ewish Mayor

KANSAS CITY, Mo.,
(JTA) — Richard L.
Berkley, businessman,
Jewish community leader
and long-time City Coun-
cilman, was elected Mayor
of Kansas City, Mo., Tues-
day by a surprisingly large
margin. Berkley will be the
first Jewish mayor in lie ci-
ty's history.
An unusual aspect of the
election, one much featured
by leading newspapers, was
the fact that Berkley's op-
ponent, Councilman Bruce
R. Watkins, was the first
black ever to run for the
ty's highest office.
Community leaders,
however, sought to deem-

phasize the "black versus
Jewish" aspect of the race.
Berkley received 58.-1 per-
cent of the total vote in the
largest turnout in a
mayoral election since
1942. In the Feb. 27 pri-
mary, Watkins finished
first and Berkley finished
second in a field of four.
The city charter calls
for a non-partisan elec-
tion for mayor. Berkley,
who has a long back-
ground of leadership in
the Republican Party,
ran with the backing of
the non-partisan Citizens
Association. National
media, however, billed
his victory as that of "the
first Republican mayor"
in traditionally Demo-
cratic Kansas City in
more than half a century.
Berkley has served for
more than eight years as
mayor pro-tern and has had
high visibility in the Jewish
community. He is a member
of the New Reform Temple
and was the first recipient of
the Civic Service Award of
the Hebrew Academy of
Greater Kansas city. There
were four candidiates in the
primary with the two high-
est to be on the ballot for the
general election.
