Before the war, Sarajevo
was the third largest Jewish
community in Yugoslavia
with 8,300 Jews. Only 1,000
survived the Holocaust.
The group visited Dub-
rovnik. In one of the side-
streets of the plaza, the
Jewish street, there is an
old synagogue from the
14th Century. It is one of
the oldest synagogues left in
the Balkans. It served for
hundreds of years the reli-
gious needs of the big and
rich community, but today
no sign or writing shows
what this building had been
before.
The group arrived in
Dubrovnik two days be-
fore Yom Kippur. They
visited first Elimio Tolan-
tino, the elderly man who
manages the affairs of the
small community and
serves as cantor and
overseer in the
synagogue. He told us
that it is hard to mobilize
a minyan for prayers,
even on Yom Kippur eve.
The whole group took
part in the prayers, and
there was a minyan, includ-
ing tourists from the U.S.
and Argentina. Before the
Holocaust there were 200
Jews in Dubrovnik. Today,
the Tolantinos and a few
other families are all that
remain.
The group also visited
Split, a city which has
existed nearly 2,000 years.
During archeological exca-
vations gravestones of an
old Jewish cemetery were
found and candle lighters
with the sign of the menora
on them.
Jews came to Split in the
beginning of the Seventh
Century. In the time of the
Venetian Republic Jews de-
veloped commercial rela-
tions between Venice and
Turkey. They enjoyed the
liberal and friendly rela-
tions of the authorities of
the Republic. Split served in
the 16th Century as
sanctuary for the Jews ex-
pelled from Spain and Por-
tugal.
After the occupation of
Dalmatia by the Italians
in 1914 came the end for
the Jewish community.
The Italian fascists de-
stroyed the synagogue
and the Jewish archives,
which contained impor-
tant documents on the
history of the Jews of
Split.
After the Nazi occupa-
tion, the situation of the
remaining Jews became
worse. The old ones and the
children were deported to
concentration camps and
one-third of the Jews of
Split, mostly youngsters,
joined the underground.
Only a small fraction of
the survivors came after the
war to Israel.

Ex-Nazi Carlson Will Run

Gerald R. Carlson, a
white supremacist and ex-
Nazi who won the Republi-
can Party nomination for
Congress in Michigan's
15th District last August
but was defeated in Novem-
ber, has filed to run again.
This time Carlson is seek-
ing the 4th District seat
previously held by David
Stockman, now director of
the Office of Management
and Budget for the Reagan
Administration.
Carlson won the 15th Dis-
trict Republican nomina-
tion last summer in a heav-
ily Democratic district.
Embarrassed Republican

officials attribute his 33
percent showing in the No-
vember election to the Re-
agan landslide- victory.
Carlson faces strong
opposition in the March
24 Republican primary
race in the 4th District.
His Republican oppo-
nents include two state
legislators.
Carlson said he will run
on a "white rights" platform
and stress urban decay.
