ing Jews from the Nazi ter-
ror.
Since the couple was un-
able to travel to Israel for
the tree-planting ceremony,
they designated Sister
Carol Rittner, director of
learning resources at Mercy
College of Detroit and an
active proponent of
Holocaust education, to re-
present them.
In her talk at the gather-
ing in Jerusalem, Sister
Carol stated in part:

"One wonders, given
the ample empirical data
about villainy during the
Holocaust, whether or
not there were any
sparks of human de-
cency, of human concern
evidenced by anyone.
Were there no people
who cared enough to
move, to act, to speak out,
to help?

"There were: a few people
here, a few people there, or
in the case of Denmark, an
entire nation — ordinary
people who reached out,
who risked their lives and
the lives of their families to
save Jews.
"Ignacy and Helen
Chorazyczewski were two
of those people who risked
all to save the lives of four
Jewish boys in a small town
in Poland during the Nazi
occupation. They are posit-
ive proof that there was and
always is an alternative to
passive complicity with
evil. Through them,
through their story, the past
is brought to bear on the
present for the sake of the
future . .
"Hospitality is a funda-
mental attitude toward
other human beings. It is
this attitude of openness, of
welcome, of generosity a,nd
of protection that the
Chorazyczewskis offered
their young guests. They of-
fered care, concern nad love
— not for a price, not for
honor or recognition, but
because they saw in the
others — in those four
young boys, the image and
the spark of God."

JLK Denies
Attack on Envoy

NEW YORK (JTA) —
The Jewish Defense League
said that while it was not
responsible for the attack
last Saturday night on a
house used by the Soviet
Ambassador to the United
Nations, it "applauded all
such actions aimed at free-
dom for Soviet Jewry."
According to police re-
ports, some time between 6
p.m. and 10 p.m. Saturday
night, about a dozen shots
were fired into a glass-
enclosed sitting room of a
building in the Glen Cove,
Long Island, compound
housing Soviet Ambassador
Oleg Troyanovsky. No one
was in the house at the time
of the attack.
A man saying he repre-
sented the JDL telephoned
United Press International
earlier Sunday and claimed
responsibility for the at-
tack. The JDL has staged
several protests at the com-
pound used by Soviet
envoys to the United Na-
tions.

Helen and Ignacy Chorazyczewski. Pictured with her,
