him the lives of his seven
children in a concentration
camp.
Thus, the saving of one
Jew or a whole family often
involved the cooperation of
many Christians. Often
Jews were hidden in a re-
construction house, false
closets, cemetery graves
and even pig sties.

By RABBI BERNARD
RASKAS

(A Seven Arts Feature)

The Holocaust is a shock-
ing tale of brutality, tor-
ture, murder and systema-
tic savagery on a grand
scale. It pains us deeply to
recall it. But, on the other
hand, we should also re-
member some inspiring
moments of those tragic
years. Those include the
remembrance of the non-
Jews who risked their lives
and gave their lives to save
Jews.

e

Many of the survivors
re saved because of non-
Jews who defied the ster-
nest edicts and threats of
the Gestapo and sheltered
Jews in their homes, in
churches, in orphanages, in
barns, in factories, in
schools and other similar
places. These Christians
were people like Jozefek,
the cattle dealer in Lvov,
who sheltered 35 Jews even
though it led to his being
hanged in the public square;
The Mother Superior and
the nuns of the Benedictine
convent at Vilna who hid
imperiled Jews in their con-
vent and clothed them in
their own garb to hide them
from the would-be murder-
ers; The Protestant minis-
ter, Pastor Vergara, who
hid 70 Jewish children in
his church; and Edoardo
Focherini, the editor of the
daily Avvenire d'Italia, who
rescued Jews until finally
he was caught and it cost

However, there is one
name that has become
the symbol of the nobility
to which a human being
can rise. That -name is
Raoul Wallenberg. His
story is well known. He is
responsible for saving
the lives of thousands of
Jews. His end is a mys-
tery. He was captured by
the Russians and disap-
peared in their prisons.

Last year, someone from
Russia testified that he saw
him in a Russian jail cell.
Recently, he was designated
an honorary citizen by the
Congress of the United
States. An honor accorded
to few.
Many consider "Love
your neighbor as yourself,"
as the most important verse
in the Torah. It does not say:
Love your neighbor the Jew,
or love your neighbor the
Catholic, or love your
neighbor the intellectual, or
love your neighbor the ar-
tist. It just says, "Love your
neighbor." Love • your
neighbor because he or she
was created in the image of
God, love him or her be-
cause that is right, decent,
and the only way to live.

Weizmann Scientists Create
Three-Minute Poison Test

REHOVOT— Dr. Shlomo
Margel and Josef Hirsh of
the Weizmann Institute's
plastics research depart-
ment recently received a
call from a Haifa hospital
informing them that four
children had just been hos-
pitalized with suspected
mercury poisoning.
The call came because the
attendant physicians had
heard of an improved clini-
cal test for determining
mercury levels in blood or
urine developed by Dr.
Margel and Hirsh, and they
asked the scientists to be
ready the following morn-
ing to receive a special
shipment of blood for
analysis in their
laboratories.
The results were tele-
phoned to Haifa physicians
to initiate appropriate an
tidotal treatment.

-

The new test permits
the precise determina-
tion of mercury levels in
blood or urine within
three minutes. Many
other methods now in use
take much longer and
even those which are
relatively fast are much
more complex and less
reliable than the new
institute-developed one.

This test grew out of Dr.
Margel's work on the de-
velopment of plastic beads
for cleaning a patient's
blood of mercury and other
systemic poisons, in the

course of which he dis-
covered that there was, at
the time, no inexpensive,
rapid, and accurate way of
routinely determining mer-
cury levels in blood or urine.

NEW YORK — Sixty
Russian couples will for-
mally celebrate their
Jewish marriages on May
11, Lag b'Omer, at Mishkan
Tefila Synagogue in
Chestnut Hill, Mass.
The couples were civilly
married in the Soviet Union
but have never before had
the chance to stand under a
canopy (hupa), recite the
proper Jewish marriage
formula and receive a
Jewish marriage contract
(ketuba) before the required
Jewish witnesses, according
to Rabbi Richard Yellin. He

Jewish wedding ceremony,
let alone- participated in
one.
Lag b'Omer was chosen as
the most appropriate date
for the ceremony because of
the political and religious
overtones of this historical
date in the Jewish calendar.
It is one of the few spring
days appropriate or permis-
sible for wedding recep-
tions.
Five area rabbis and five
cantors will conduct the
wedding ceremony. Each
couple will receive a
newly-designed and lithog-

under a specially designed
floral hupa which will cover
the entire sanctuary bima.
