he said.
In his remarks, aimed at
involving every agency
board member in Campaign
activity, Zeltzer recalled the
mobilization of the com-
munity's resources three
years ago with the influx of
Soviet Jews. At that time,
priorities were shifted so
that every effort could be
made to absorb the new-
comers. After running a

Exploits of Unknown Ghetto
Fighters Subject of Book

In "Soldiers from the
Ghetto" (A. S. Barnes),
Shalom Cholawski points
out that the Jewish uprising
in the Warsaw Ghetto was
not the first planned resis-
tance to Hitler and the
Nazis.
Cholawski was part of the
Jewish revolt in the Polish
ghetto at Nesviz in July
1942. Rather than accept a
catastrophic fate, the Jews
of Nesviz burned their town
to the ground, fought Ger-
mans and Polish sym-
pathizers with whatever
weapons they could impro-
vise, and fled to the forests
where they formed a parti-
san army that would prove
itself the bane of Germany's
advance on Moscow.
The book begins with the
outbreak of war between
Poland and the Third Reich.
Cholawski, along with his
fellow Jewish compatriots,
attempted to enlist in the
Polish army. Unfortu-
nately, they were informed
that Poland had no weapons
with which to fight, and the
Soviets were less concerned
with aiding the Jews than
they were in establishing
Russian hegemony over Po-
land.
It was up to people like
Cholawski to defend
their native country. For

the five Campaign be-
neficiaries who also receive
allocations from United
Community Services will
face 10 percent reductions
in their funding because of
declining revenue through
the Torch Drive. Funding
cuts to all UCS agencies can
be expected as a result of
unemployment in the
automobile industry.
The five Federation agen-
cies directly affected are
Fresh Air Society, Jewish
Community Center, Jewish
Family Service, Jewish
Vocational Service and
Shiffman Clinic at Sinai
Hospital.

two years, these men and
women successfully
harassed the vanguard of
German land forces in
Eastern Europe.
Cholawski, who led the
revolt, earned a PhD degree
from the Hebrew Univer-
sity and is currently the Is-
raeli secretary of the World
Federation of the Former
Partisans and Ghetto
Fighters.

AJC Receives
Assurances on
Exchange Plan

NEW YORK — The
American Jewish Commit-
tee has been assured by
University of Washington
officials that their recently
authorized exchange pro-
gram with Saudi Arabia's
King Abdulaziz University •
includes a viable, non-
discriminatory clause that,
if not adhered to, would nul-
lify the agreement between
the two universities.
Terms of the $3.6 million
contract, due to expire June
30, but which could be the
beginning of a 10-year af-
filiation between the two
schools, will allow the uni-
versities to develop pilot
programs in faculty de-
velopment, medical educa-
tion and medical research.
