Israelis Dispute Timerman View

Jacobo Timerman, the
Argentinian Jew whose
book "Prisoner Without
a Name, Cell Without a
Number" has triggered a
stormy controversy in the
United States, accuses Is-
rael of silence on the plight
of Argentinian Jewry.
In an interview given to
the editors of Haaretz,
Timerman said that
whereas in the United
States he had many inter-
views on TV, radio and in
the press, all communica-
tions channels in Israel con-
tinue to remain silent.

Timerman asserted that
there is a Nazi regime run-
ning Argentina — a view
contradicted by the leaders
of the organized Argenti-
nian Jewish community.
The former speaker of the
Knesset, Yitzhak Berman,
declared at a press confer-
ence that Timerman's
charges have to be seriously
questioned. "Who knows
why he was arrested. Who
knows whether he was even
tortured in an Argentinian
prison," Berman said. All of
these statements have re-
sulted in a bitter denuncia-
tion by Timerman, which is

He made the point that
he thoroughly dislikes
the Israelis ("They are in-

love Israel as a country.
"I consider myself fortu-
nate in Israel, but I shall
never be an Israeli,"
Timerman said.
Prior to his leaving
Argentina he was solicited
by the two Israeli afternoon
papers, Yediot Ahronot and
Maariv, who were vying for
the right to print his mate-
rial. Timerman accepted
Maariv's offer which was
the first he had received.
"But now," Timerman
said, "the paper has sus-
pended printing my articles
on grounds that they have
no competent Spanish
translator." And what
about his learning Hebrew?
"I don't know Hebrew and I
will never learn the lan-
guage," Timerman said.
Meanwhile, the Jewish
Agency Executive Chair-
man Arye Dulzin, upon re-
turning from a visit to
Argentina, said that the
country's government is
"not anti-Semitic" and the
conditions of Argentinian
Jewry are "not bad."

Weisenthal Center Film Offers
Dramatic Reminder of Holocaust


Leon Kahn, of Vancouver,
Canada, like many
Holocaust survivors, fears
that once the survivors will
be gone, the murders and
atrocities committed by the
Nazis will be forgotten.
It is to-prevent this from
happening that the Simon
Wiesenthal Center at
Yeshiva University of Los
Angeles worked to produce
the film, "Genocide," which
had its world premiere at
the Kennedy CenterJan.
There are 64 publications
denying the truth of the
Holocaust printed in the
United States and Canada,
Kahn told a press confer-
ence following the pre-
miere. He said in another 20
years, there would no longer
be any survivors alive to
bear wi.ness.
Kahn's own harrowing
experience is described
in the film by Elizabeth
Taylor. He and other
members of his family es-
caped into the woods and
hid from the Nazis but he
left his mother who re-
fused to leave her aged
grandmother. The two
women were killed in the
gas chambers.
The film, which is nar-
rated by Miss Taylor and
Orson Welles, does a good
job in presenting the history
of pre-World War II Euro-
pean Jewry and then of
anti-Semitism and the rise
of Nazism, albeit in a cap-
sule form. Through the use
of actual film clips, still por-
traits and illustrations, it

The film does not gloss
over the failure of the
United States and the allies
to bomb the camps. At the
end, it is noted that Nazi in-
cidents continue today in
the U.S. and abroad.
If there is criticism, it is
that the film does now
show the displaced per-
sons camps after the war
and the desire of the
Jewish survivors to go to
Israel. Israel is hardly
