WASHINGTON (JTA) —
Indications in Congress
were that the Carter Ad-
ministration's proviso for
"market" rates of interest
will prevail for the coming
fiscal year on the loans
earmarked for Israel and
Egypt arising from their
peace treaty.
The Senate Foreign Rela-
tions Committee last week
voted out the $4.8 billion
special economic assistance
measure by a vote of 10-1
and sent it to the Senate
floor with recommendations
for reconsideration next
year of the interest rate and
calling on European nations
and Japan to support the
two Middle East countries.
Sen. Jesse Helms (R — NC)
alone opposed the bill on
final passage.
Sens. Frank Church (D —
Idaho), the committee
chairman, Jacob Javits (R
— N.Y.) and Richard Stone
(D — Fla.) introduced the
previso that will cause the

Martyr Information Asked

Gisi Fleischmann, born in
1897, was a leader of the
Women's International
Zionist Organization in
Slovakia before World War
II. At the outbreak of the
war she sent her two young
children to what was then
called Palestine, but re-
mained in Bratislava in an
attempt to help the commu-
nity.
he was instrumental in
saving thousands of lives,
including those of refugees
from Poland; she managed
to convey word of the at-
rocities being committed- by
the Nazis to many leaders of
the free world, probably in-
cluding Pope Pius XII. In
addition, she negotiated
with Dieter Wisliceny and
other top-ranking Nazi
leaders in connection with
the Europa Plan, an effort
conceived by Rabbi Michael
Weissmandel to ransom
Europe's remaining Jews.
On or about Oct. 18, 1944,
Mrs. Fleischmann became
one of the last victims of the
Auschwitz gas chambers.
For a projected biog-
raphy, information is
currently being sought
from those who knew or
had contact with Mrs.

Fleischmann. Material
relating to her youth, her
relationships with her
family, and other per-
sonal details will be of
particular value in paint-
ing a three-dimensional
portrait of this heroic
woman; however, even
those whose acquain-
tance with her was
limited to a brief
encounter may be able to
make a worthwhile con-
tribution by offering
their information and in-
sights.
All information should be
sent to Joan Campion, 508
Fifth Ave., Bethlehem, Pa.
18018.

(Editor's note: The
martyrdom and heroism
of a victim of Nazism is
the subject of research,
preparatory to an histor-
ical record of tribute by
Joan Campion, a non-
Jewish activist in the
ranks of Christians dedi-
cated to preserving the
record of Jewish resis-
tance to Nazism, whose
special articles have ap-
peared in The Detroit
Jewish News.)

Gentile Appreciation Asked
at U.S. Holocaust Observance

WASHINGTON (JTA) —
The more than 2,000 per-
sons who filled the National
Cathedral of the Episcopal
Church Sunday for the con-
clusion of the eight "Days of
Remembrance of the Vic-
tims of the Holocaust"
heard a strong appeal for
Christians to understand
the Holocaust and prevent
its recurrence.
"The time has come for
something more than a
generalized non-sectarian
good feeling," Sen. John C.
Danforth (R-Mo.), an Epis-
copal minister, told the in-
terfaith congregation which
included First Lady
Rosalynn Carter and
Treasury Secretary W.
Michael Blumenthal, who is
himself a refugee from Nazi
Germany. "The time has
come for an examination of
the Holocaust in the light of
what each of us professes as

believing persons."
The service marked the
end of a week of observances
throughout the country
which started with a memo-
rial service in New York's
Temple Emanu-El April 22
and featured a ceremony
marking International
Holocaust Day at the
Rotunda of the U.S. Capitol
April 24 which was ad-
dressed by President Car-
ter.

House Hits PLO

WASHINGTON (JTA) —
The House of Representa-
tives has struck a double
blow at the Palestine Liber-
ation Organization. It
amended previous legisla-
tion to bar "any alien who is
a member, officer, official
representative( or spokes-
man" of the PLO from ob-
taining a visa to enter the
United States and it re-
duced the U.S. contribution
to the United Nations in the
U.S. share of the costs of two
PLO propaganda units.

These steps were taken e
the House approved the
authorization money bill for
the State Department for
the coming fiscal year. The
bill was sent to the Senate
for enactment.
No debate was held on
the amendment by Rep,
Lester Wolff (D — N.Y.)
that cut the U.S. contri-
bution of the costs of the
UN Special Unit on
33
tinian Rights an.... - Lhe
Committee on the Exev2-,
cise of the Inalienable
Rights of the Palestinian
People.
The visa proviso was ;n
reaction to the recent U.S.
speaking tour of a PLO offi 2
cial.

Dutch Frown on Holocaust'

AMSTERDAM (JTA) —
The screening of the first
part of the NBC-TV film
"Holocaust" in Holland last
week drew a generally
negative reaction. Many
viewers complained be-
cause their favorite pro-
grams had been pre-
empted. Others suggested
that the film would increase
rather than diminish anti-
Semitism and a few said
they were emotionally dis-
turbed and would rather not
have seen it.

Rabbi Friedman,
Hasidic Leader

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
The Hasidic Rebbe of
Sadagora, Rabbi Mordechai
Shalom Yosef Friedman,
died April 26 at age 83.
The eldest surviving
member of the illustrious
Hasidic house of Rizhyn,
and a member since 1929 of
Agudat Israel's Council of
Sages, Rabbi Friedman
headed a small community
from his modern-style north
Tel Aviv synagogue. His
organization included
yeshivot, synagogues and
other religious institutions
in Jerusalem and Bnei
Brak.
Rabbi Friedman was born
in 1897 in Sadagora. His
father was Rabbi Aharon of
Sadagora, a lineal descen-
dant of the famous founder
of the Hasidic house of
Rizhyn, Rabbi Israel. It was
Aharon whom Theodor
Herzl envisaged in his
"Altneuland" as the
"bishop" of a new Jewish
state, and in his diaries
Herzl gives an account of

contacts he had with the
rabbi.

The younger Rabbi
Friedman, who suc-
ceeded his father at age
16, also was sympathetic
to the Zionist ideal de-
spite his membership and
activism in the non-
Zionist Agudat Israel
organization. During the
1930s he persistently ad-
vised his followers to flee
Europe and was respon-
sible for inspiring var-
ious groups of Hasidim to
settle in Palestine.
He himself visited Pales-
tine several times and fi-
nally settled in Tel Aviv six
months before World. War II
broke out.

organization Tros reported
about 500 telephone calls,
fewer than had been ex- ,
petted. The screening lasted
from 11 p.m.-12:30 a.m. It
was followed by a radio
broadcast of a panel discus-
sion by experts including
Avraham Soetendorp of the
Liberal Jewish Congrega-
tion, Johann Van Der-
Leeuw of The Netherlands
State Institute for War
Documentation, a psychiat :
rist and a social worker.
Many callers com-
plained that too much at--
tention was being given_
to the persecution of
Jews during the war
which ended 34 years
ago. Others criticized the
emphasis on Jewish vic-
tims although Gypsies ;
homosexuals and other
minorities suffered the
same fate because of who
they were.
A number of viewers
thought it was unfair to
concentrate on German at-
rocities in light of the at
rocities committed by
Americans in Vietnam au
the Dutch in the East In-

dies.

Maurice Orbach, -
Led British Jews`

LONDON (JTA) —'
Maurice Orbach, who had
been a Labor member o
Parliament since 1946 and
a prominent leader of
Anglo-Jewry, died April 24
at age 76.
He was active in the
World Jewish Con5\ and
in 1954 was sent mis-
sion to Cairo to s ,---,.‘ the
of Jews sentenced to
death for their part in the
so-called Lavon affair. Mr,
Orbach later claimed that
President Gamal Abdel
Nasser agreed to spare their
lives, but broke his promise-
in order to balance their
deaths with his execution of
Moslem Brotherhood mem-
bers.
In Britain, Mr. Orbach
established the Trade
Advisory Council, a
committee of the Board of
Deputies of British Jews,
aimed at countering '
anti-Semitism in business
life during World War II.
He remained its secre-
tary until his death.
-
A stalwart Zionist, he was
a founder of the Labor
Friends of Israel.
