THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

Response to `Zachor' Boosts Holocaust Memorial Center
Funding; Assembly Inspired by Prof. Alice Eckardt

Zachor — Remember! —
was the challenge. "We
won't forget" and "Never
Again" were the answers.
The occasion was an as-
sembly of some 130 hosted
by Mr. and Mrs. David
Hermelin, who responded to
calls for action to provide
the funds necessary for the
construction of the planned
Holocaust Memorial Center
adjacent to the Jewish
Community Center of Met-
ropolitan Detroit.
Henry Dorfman, as
chairman of the Holocust
Memorial Center Commit-
tee, and David Hermelin
keynoted the evening's pro-
cedures which were in-
spired by the address of
Prof. Alice Eckardt in her
analysis of the experiences
of the President's Holocaust
Commission, headed by Elie
Wiesel, on its tour of the
concentration camps in Po-
land and the Babi Yar site

in Russia.
Leonard Siegel, ar-
chitect of the project,
illustrated his explanat-
ory statement with the
projected plans for the
building. He gave the de-
tails and emphasized that
while the Holocaust
Memorial Center will be
attached to the Jewish
Community Center it will
in reality be an indepen-
dent and fully-operated
exhibition building with
all the required areas, in-
cluding a lecture hall, to
make it the largest
facility of its kind after
Y a d Vashem in
Jerusalem.
David Hermelin, who
chaired the meeting, stimu-
lated the generous giving
which resulted inadditional
contributions of $170,000.
He revealed receiving much
hate mail evidencing the re-
surging neo-Nazism in this

country.
George M. Zeltzer,
president of the Jewish Wel-
fare Federation, corn-
mended the sponsors of the
project and emphasized the
enthusiasm with which it is
supported by Federation as
a cooperating partner to-
gether with the Jewish
Community Center.
Similarly, David Mondry,
co-chairman of the Allied
Jewish Campaign, gave the
effort strong endorsement.
He recalled learning about
the Polish Jewish struggles
in the home of his parents
who were immigrants from
Poland, bemoaned the pre-
sent horrors indicating an
increased anti-Semitism
and vowed greater efforts
for the support of Israel as a
rescuer of survivors from
Nazism.
Of major importance
was the report of the
executive director of the

Shown at Monday's meeting on behalf of the
Holocaust Memorial Center are, from left, Rabbi
Charles Rosenzveig, George Zeltzer, guest speaker
Prof. Alice Eckardt, Henry Dorfman, David Mondry
and Leon Halpern.

Holocaust Center Com-
mittee, Rabbi Charles H.
Rosenzveig, who re-
ported that $800,000 was
already pledged toward-S-
the $2,000,000 fund
necessary to construct
the Holocaust Memorial
Center. The $170,000
raised Monday night
boosts the total to half the
needed sum.
Deeply ,moving was the
address of Prof. Eckardt as
an historic analysis of the
President's Holocaust
Commission headed by
Wiesel of which she is a con-
sultant. With her husband,
Prof. Roy Eckardt, who like
her, is on the faculty of
Lehigh University, Mrs.
Eckardt has just completed
the book "Long Night's
Journey Into Day: Life and
Faith After the Holocaust."
It will be published in 1981
by Wayne State University
Press. During her visit here,
Prof. Eckardt conferred
with Dr. Bernard Goldman,
director of Wayne State
University Press.
Mrs. Eckardt illustrated
her address with slides giv-
ing a thorough account of
the Holocaust Commis-
sion's visits to Poland and
Russia. It was a sad report,
revealing not only a recur-
ring but an increasing
anti-Semitism.
In Poland, visiting some
villages, there were greet-
ings, "So the Jews have
come back again," as a wel-
come to an American group
that included as many
Christians as Jews.
Her warning was that
the increased anti-
Semitism is evidenced
also in this country.
In both Poland and Rus-
sia, at Auschwitz, Treb-
linka and Babi Yar, the em-
phasis was on victims of
Nazism, Jews being only in-
cidental, as if the Holocaust
were not aimed at the de-
struction of Jewry, Mrs. Ec-
kardt declared.
She made the following
statement:
"The impact of this trip
and the places we visited is
what you are working to
create here, for those who
can't journey to those dis-
tant places.
"I cannot think of a
greater contribution you
could make to the neces-
sary sensitizing and

educating of the Ameri-
can people. There is
something undeniable
and ineradicable about
the impression which
pictures and other dis-
plays can have — and we
all know of the need to
counteract those who
seek to refute the
Holocaust as an actual
event.
"A center where serious
study can be undertaken,
where people can come for
answers to their questions
— and there are lots of those
— is a basic necessity if we
really intend to do every-
thing in our power to see
that 'Never Again' becomes
more than an emotional
slogan."
