Noble Heroine Memorialized

"One of Endre Steiner's
employees drew several
caricatures ,showing mem-
bers of the Working Group.
In one of these Gisi, the do-
minant figure, is shown as a
Jewish Saint Joan of Arc,
the reins of her horse held
by Y. 0. Neumann.
"The intuition of the ar-
tist was not wide of the
mark. Gisi Fleischmann
was not everybody's Saint
Joan; Joan of Arc herself
was not that. But it can be
argued that Gisi was, per-
haps, Bernard Shaw's Saint
Joan — possessed of tRat
kind of clear but, no doubt,
naive intelligence, that
kind of straightforward-
ness, that gift for getting to
the heart of the mat-
ter. In many of her written
statements it is possible to
hear the accents of earnest
and urgent speech., `. . . the
most important thing is for
us to save lives;' The
point is that now we have
the chance to save the rest of
them'; 'Do not forget the
most important thing!'

Karen Ann Goldstein
and Marc Jeffrey Emery
were married recently at
the Sonesta Beach Hotel in
Key Biscayne, Fla. Rabbi
David Salzman of the Aven-
tura Jewish Center of North
Miami Beach officiated.
The bride is the daughter
of Mrs. Sheryl Wolfman of
Hollywood, Fla., and Mr.
Robert Goldstein of Gutten-
berg, N.J. Parents of the
bridegroom are former De-
troiters Mr. and Mrs. Hy
Emery of Hollywood, Fla.
Ellen Evans was the mat-
ron of honor. Michael
Emery was his brother's
best man. Bridesmaids were
Karen Emery, sister of the
bridegroom, and Heidi
Handman. Ushers were
David Goldstein, brother of
the bride, and Doug Belew.
The couple are residing in
Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.

"If a psychological expla-
nation is what is wanted, at
this date no definitive an-
swer to such a question can
be given — if indeed it ever
could. The material for a
psychological appraisal of
her life is no longer avail-
"Nothing can now be
known of her mental and
spiritual development as a
child and young woman, for
example, For that matter,
very little can be known
even of the key relationship
between Gisi and Josef
Fleischmann, although wife
and husband appear to have
got on well together.
"In the absence of such
basic information, any at-
tempt to draw conclu-
sions about a person's
psychological motivations
would be useless, or worse.
"Besides, as the
sociologist Aryeh Tar-
takower argues in a
paper on the Polish
Jewish leader Adam
Czerniakow, in times of
great catastrophes such
as the Holocaust, the
normal psychological
and sociological terms
cease to apply.
. . . Regular
phenomena and normal
reactions become limited in
scope. On the one hand
there tends to be a tremen-
dous rapprochement be-
tween men in the face of
coming danger, and on the
other hand man's instinc-
tive desire for self-
preservation increases,
even at the expense of
others. On the one hand —
the fear of the pursued ani-
mal, whose primary concern
is to save itself, and on the
other — the supreme
heroism of a human being
struggling to keep the
image of God before him.'
"All that matters is that
Gisi and her friends were
among those who struggled
to keep the image of God be-

fore them. For beyond ques-
tions of psychology, there is
a realm in which what
counts about a life is not its
motivations — the road to
hell being proverbially
paved with good intentions
— but its deeds.
"It was Gisi Fleis-
chmann's deeds that moved
her friend Irma Polak to call
her 'a heroine as great
as Hannah Senesh.' And it
was the measure of deeds
that prompted Adolf
Eichmann's prosecutor,
Gideon Hausner, to write of
her, `Gisi Fleischmann's
name deserves to be immor-
talized in the annals of our
people, and her memory
should be bequeathed to
further generations as a
radiant example of heroism
and of boundless devotion.'
"But that is not all.
"Accident of heritage —
the fact that she was born in
a particular place, at
a particular time, to a par-
ticular set of parents —
makes her in some ways
almost a quintessential
Jewish figure. But it would
be a cold person, Jew or gen-
tile, who could not respond
to her courage, her compas-
sion, and that passion for
life which made her as zeal-
ous for the lives of others as
for her own.
"She belongs to all of us
who continue to hope and
work for a better world."
Miss Campion wrote the
Fleischmann story with a
sense of outrage over the
occurrences that made the
Holocaust the beastliest of
crimes in the human record.
She compiled her facts with
a sense of love as for a mar-
tyred heroine. She makes
her story live as a reminder
of an age of horror. Her
labors demand commenda-
tion for a saintly devotion to
a most dramatic chapter in
history. Her book merits a
place in every library, per-
sonal and communal.




We might prefer to forget it — but we don't dare. The enemies of the
Jewish people, and of all decent human beings, are determined that we SHALL
forget. Why? So they can continue trying to bring about a new Holocaust, one
they hope will complete what the first began.


Remembering the Holocaust means paying honor to Its victims. One of
the greatest of these was the noble Slovakian Jewish woman Gist Fleis-
chmann, a leader whose efforts helped save the lives of thousands. Of her,
Gideon Hausner has written, "GIs' Fleischmann's name deserves to be im-
mortalized In the annals of our people and her name should be bequeathed to
further generations as a radiant example of heroism and of boundless devo-

Now this shining personality is memorialized in a new book.
