THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

The Partisan' Spans Holocaust to Present

By DR. MILTON
STEINHARDT

"The Partisan — From
The Valley of Death to
Mount Zion," by Yitzhak
Arad (Holocaust Library) is
the epitome of the saga of
the Jewish struggle for sur-
vival and security. The title
is accurate, the contents
forthright, and the narra-
tive emotionally painful at
the immensity of events
that gripped Eastern Euro-
pean Jewry in 1939.
This book spans the his-
tory of a boy age 13 at the
time the Nazis invaded
Warsaw, the initial shock
and impact of the ghetto,
the degradation and
humiliation, the obscene

Fortuitously, this adoles-
cent boy of 15, as a forced
laborer in a military ware-
house, secretly accumu-
lated weapons under the
nose of the Nazi masters
and escaped to the forests of
Lithuania.
He became a part of a
Jewish partisan unit (la-
ter named "Wilnus") that
fought the Nazis, the local
fascists, sabotaged the
railway supply trans-
ports to the front and was
decorated by the Soviets
for heroic contributions.
At the end of the war he

ADL Expecting
KKK Violence

NEW YORK — The Ku
Klux Klan is likely to pro-
voke fresh violence this
spring and summer, the
Anti-Defamation League of
Bnai Brith has warned fed-
eral officials.
In a report to the U.S.
Commission on Civil Rights
in Washington last month,
Irwin Suall, director of
ADL's fact finding depart-
ment, said "increased vigi-
lance" from law enforce-
ment officials and greater
public awareness of KKK
activities was necessary to
meet the "challenge."
The reasons for the esca-
lation of the Klan threat are
threefold, Suall told the
commissioners: the advent
of warmer weather,
facilitating outdoor demon-
strations; increased compe-
tition among Klan groups
for headlines and notoriety,
and announcements by lef-
tist groups of their inten-
tions to stage "direct, vio-
lent confrontations" of their
own with Klansmen.

Women in Israel
Topic of Parley

NEW YORK — The first
national Conference on
Women in Israel will take
plate April 11-13 at the
- Brooklyn College Hillel
Foundation, Brooklyn, N.Y.
The conference, coordi-
nated by several cooperat-
ing organizations and indi-
viduals, will bring together
women who are considering
Aliyah, who are working
within the Zionist move-
ment, and who are seriously
concerned about the role of
women in Israel.

demolition and experienced
many narrow escapes in
battles of the liberation in
1948.
He continued his services
in the Six-Day War, in the
capture of the Old City of
Jerusalem that 15 years
previously his unit lost after
a valiant struggle.
This remarkable man
was active in the Yom
Kippur War as brigadier
general, and recently he
guided President Sadat
and President Carter
upon their visits to Israel.
Could anyone pack more
into one lifetime?
There are two events in
this narrative that caused
this reviewer a sleepless
night. One was the picture
(in silhouette) of Nazis
shooting young Jewish
women before prepared
mass graves; the second is
the heartrending episode
when the Nazi retreat was
imminent and the order was
given to burn the thousands
of corpses previously
thrown into mass graves in
order to hide the enormity of
the genocide. It was during
this reverse process that
some of the Jewish laborers
identified the bodies of their
own relatives.
One wishes for another
Bialik who reacted to the
horrors and revulsion of the
Kishinev pogrom to speak
out against this bestiality of
the Nazis and the bank-
ruptcy of our moral leaders.

The importance of this
gripping heroic story is not
of one individual caught in
the storm, but rather, it is
the essence of the struggle
and resistance of the Jewish
people during the last 2,000
years.
This reviewer would
recommend this book
highly to the Jewish youth
— as a challenge, a source of
pride and inspiration and
an incentive for positive
identity.
