Meanwhile,
Health Minister Eliezer
Shostack denounced In-
ternational Red Cross
figures on civilian
casualties as "grossly
exaggerated."
Shostack said in his re-
port to the Knesset Tuesday

that 400 civilians were kil-
led in Sidon, 50 in Tyre and
10 in Nabatiye.
Israel's casualties after
20 days of fighting in Leba-
non amounted to 269
soldiers killed and 1,255
wounded, a military
spokesman said. The fig-
ures given by Defense
Minister Ariel Sharon were
slightly higher: 271 dead,
11 missing and 1,470
wounded.
Corrections on the
number of Lebanese left
homeless by the Israeli in-
vasion also were issued by
the Red Cross. Originally
using the PLO estimates at
the number of homeless, the
Red Cross revised its report
to state that nearly 300,000
have been left homeless by
the fighting. Israel Defense
Forces estimated the
number of refugees to be
20,000. The Red Cross orig-
inally placed the figure
around 70,000.

Holocaust, Genocide Parley
Disrupted by Controversy

By RABBI MARC H.

TEL AVIV, Israel — A

running bitter feud between
Armenians and Turks cast a
pall of controversy over the
International Conference
on the Holocaust and
Genocide that met in Tel

Aviv last week.
The week-long conference
was organized by prominent
Jewish and Christian
scholars to examine the
growing epidemic threats to
human life air over the
world through massacres,
rampant violence and ter-
rorism.
In planning the program,
the conference director,
psychologist Dr. Israel
Charny, invited six papers
to be delivered on the
Armenian massacres in
1915. There were very few
presentations on other con-
temporary tragedies such as
Cambodia, Uganda, the
Soviet gulags, among
others.
The Turkish govern-
ment protested to the Is-
rael government that
they were being
maligned. Rumor then
surfaced of threats and
counter-threats against
Israel, but the conference
was not postponed or
cancelled.
The controversy became
so embittered that the
major speakers — Elie
Wiesel, Robert J. Lifton,
Alan Dershowitz, and this
commentator were com-
pelled to withdraw.
I did so with a heavy
heart. I came here believing
that this meeting of impor-
tant scholars from many
disciplines could help
mobilize the conscience of
mankind to learn from the
Nazi Holocaust how to
stand against all forms of
genocide directed against
any innocent people.
Even though this meet-
ing has become sidet-
racked from its primary
goals, many of us here
feel that another such
meeting needs to be held
soon, but organized in a
far more politically
sophisticated way.
The original humanizing
purposes of studying the
dynamics of genocide must
be realized.

Congressman Pays Tribute
•to Wallenberg at Luncheon

Congressman Torn Lan-
tos of California, who sur-
vived the Nazi terror in
Hungary, joined in paying
honor to Raoul Wallenberg
at the International Free-
dom Festival luncheon at
Cobo Hall Monday.
Rep. Lantos, who was
Wallenberg's messenger in
Budapest during the period
of the Swedish emissary's
efforts which resulted in re-
scuing some 20,000-50,000
Jews from certain death in
Auschwitz, told the more
than 1,000 at the luncheon:
"A young Christian (Wal-
lenberg) . . . left behind the
comfort and safety, the se-
curity and affluence of
neutral Stockholm to come
to the hell that was
Budapest because he felt he
was his brother's keeper."
Rep. Lantos believes
there is an "even chance"
that Wallenberg, ar-
rested in 1945 by the
Soviets, is still alive in a
Russian prison.
Stanley Winkelman
made the presentation of
the Wallenberg Award, in
behalf of the Freedom Fes-
tival to Rep. Lantos. He
elaborated the heroism of
Wallenberg, spoke of his

background as a University
of Michigan graduate and
cited memories of the
Holocaust as a message to
mankind never to forget the
atrocities and never to per-
mit their recurrence.
