NEW YORK (JTA) - An
interim report of the Ameri-
can Jewish Commission on
the Holocaust presented
Wednesday to a full meet-
ing of the 35-member body
said American Jewish
organizations at no time"
mounted "an all-out, un-
ified sustained mobiliza-
tion" for the rescue of Euro-
pean Jewry during the
Holocaust.
According to a report in
the New York Timeg, the
interim report asked rhetor-
ically, "Did American Jews
do everything they might
have done? In hindsight,
probably not. They were so
benumbed by the mag-
nitude of this unprece-
dented catastrophe -- as
were the European Jews -
that they were slow in mov-
ing from knowledge to belief
to action."
Furthermore, according
to the Times, the report
stated: "Even if American
Jews had been united and -
organized and had taken
more action on behalf of.
European Jews, would it
have had a major impact on
rescue? We doubt it. The
number who could have
been • saved once the
Holocaust started was ex-
tremely limited."
The
commission,
formed in 1981 and dis.,
banded last August
under a flurry of con-
troversy, was reor-
ganized last month by its
chairman, Arthur
Goldberg, the former U.S.
Supreme Court Justice.
The controversy that
caused the break-up of
the commission repor-
tedly centered around an
initial draft report by the
research group which
as highly critical of the
organized Jewish com-
munity. Other reports
said the break-up was
due to the lack of funds
for the commission to
continue its research.
The report, according to

the Times, said, "It should
be recognized that the
American Jewish commu-
nity of 1939-45 was not the
community as we know it
today. It had little power or
influence. Most Jews were
first or second generation
Americans still trying to
pull themselves up by their
bootstraps. In general, they
were neither affluent or inf-
luential."

The report, according to
the Times, also assailed the
Allied countries for not act-
ing to rescue Jews in Europe
even though the report said
they had the power neces-
sary to do so. British emig-
ration policies of Jews to
Palestine in the 30's also
damaged the efforts of
European Jews to escape
the Nazis, according to the
report.

JERUSALEM (JTA) -
Mayor Teddy Kollek has
donated a rare manuscript
by composer Igor
Stravinsky to the music de-
partment of the Jewish Na-
tional and Hebrew Univer-
sity Library.
The manuscript is the
only complete manuscript
version of "Abraham and
Isaac," a ballad for baritone
and chamber orchestra. It
consists of 34 pages, with a
market value of about
$40,000.
Commissioned by the Is-
rael Festival in 1962, the
ballad was first performed
in 1964 in Jerusalem as part
of that year's festival.
Stravinsky dedicated the
12-minute work "to the
people of the state of Israel."
The composer gave the
original manuscript of the
work to Kollek. It will be on
display throughout this
month at the library's ex-
hibit.
