added.
"The
Holocaust was horrible and
broke so many accepted
norms. You know, we flatter
ourselve's that this is the
20th Century, an age of pro-
gress and moral superiority.
It's hard for somebody in
this century to admit that
this was done not just in this
century, but by educated
and civilized people.
"For 20 years, no one
wanted to hear abotit it, and
now for the last decade or
two there's been a growing
interest. The TV series was
really the foam, the top
layer of that interest. A host
of things have happened to
spread this consciousness,
but for the Holocaust to be
understood will take a much
broader consciousness."
Supplementing the re-
marks of Dr. Greenberg,
whose message inspired
generous gifts from the 80
members of the Holocaust
Center committee,
Dorfman, speaking for the
survivors, said:
"By coming tonight you
are setting an example.
Your participation will
show the rest of the com-
munity that we are back-
ing up our words with ac-
tion.
"We who experienced the
Holocaust, and those who
share in its memory, are
about to -undertake a project
that will be most important

to our children and our chil-
dren's children and to all
Jews and for all people." To-
gether we will make sure
there will be no forgetting. -

Originally. instituted by
Shaarit Haplaytah, the
organization of survivors
from Nazism, the dedication
to the idea drew
community-wide support
when the boards of the
Jewish Community Center
and the Jewish Welfare
Federation moved to coop-
erate in making the project
a reality.
The Holocaust Memoria
Center endowment funds
will be under the supervi-
sion of the United Jewish
Charities, the senior agency
of the Jewish Welfare Fed-
eration.
Sam Hechtman, chair-
man of the memorial cen-
ter's building committee,
announced there will be
no delays in planning
construction work and
the committee will meet
with architects in the
coming few days for
planning activities.

Rabbi
Charles
Rosenzveig, director of the

ter, gave the background of

pants were: Louis Berry,

addressed the gathering.

Yadin Walks Out of Cabinet
Session Over Settlements

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
Deputy Premier Yigael
Yadin walked out of the
Cabinet meeting Sunday
when his colleagues refused
to reconsider a decision by
the ministerial committee
on - settlements, while he
was in the U.S., to establish
four new Jewish settle-
ments in the West Bank.
Yadin, who is a member
of the committee, returned
later after an appeal by
Premier Menahem Begin.
However, the Cabinet's ac-
tion on the decision was
postponed.
Yadin's Democratic Party
feels that no new settle-
ments should be established
while- the peace negotia-

tions are in process. He re-
portedly charged that the
ministerial committee's de-
cision violated an earlier -
decision that for the present
the government would only
thicken existing settle-
ments.
Yadin said Sunday that if
tinue his appeal at the next
Cabinet meeting. Agricul-
ture Minister Ariel Sharor
head of the ministeriA
committee, said that prep-
arations for the four settle-
dients would also continue.

Yadin said today that if
the matter is not resolved to
his satisfaction "I will
understand the implica-
tions of the situation."
