Fifth Anniversary Marked at Beth Hatefutsoth Museum

TEL AVIV — Last month
marked the fifth anniver-
sary of the Beth Hatefut-
soth Museum. In five years,
Beth Hatefutsoth has de-
veloped from being a
museum of the history of the
Jewish people to a center of
cultural and educational ac-


tivities that reaches the
entire Diaspora.
Some two million visitors,
half of them from abroad,
have visited Beth Hatefut-
soth since 1978. The many
visitors include large num-
bers of high school pupils,
soldiers and participants in

seminars organized for
overseas visitors.
Last year, Beth Hatefut-
soth held seminars for
50,000 pupils from 1,300 Is-
raeli high school classes;
guidance was given by
teachers from the museum's
youth wing, as well as by
350 11th and 12th grade
teachers who underwent
special training.
Some 20,000 IDF offi-
cers and soldiers visited
the museum during the
year, mostly to attend
one-day seminars given
by lecturers .trained by
the army's .chief educa-
tion officer.
The cultural activities at
Beth Hatefutsoth in 1982-
1983 included 140 events,
held in the museum's au-

ditorium, and opened to the
public. Some of these events
were held in the form of
courses on the history of the
Jewish people and Jewish
music, others took the form
of symposiums, debates, in-
terviews and lectures.
The symposium on
Jewish Theater was part of
the first International Con-
ference and Festival of
Jewish Theater held in Tel
Aviv in July 1982. Also, a
series of 12 "Zionist Con-
frontations" dedicated to
clarifying the problems of
Zionist ideology prior to the
30th Zionist Congress and
a series of discussions on
new research into the his-
tory of North African Jewry
were held at the museum,
located in Tel Aviv.

U.S. Papers Blamed PLO
for Jordan Peace Rejection

NEW YORK — Most of
America's major newspap-
ers blamed the Palestine
Liberation Organization for
Jordan's rejection of
President Reagan's Middle
East peace plan, according
to the Big 50 press survey
conducted by the Anti-
Defamation League of Bnai
In making the findings
public, Abraham H. Fox-
man, ADL's associate na-
tional director and head of
its International Affairs
Division, said that of the 37
large-circulation newspap-
ers commenting on the is-
sue, 36 singled out the PLO
for the major share of the
He went on to say that
many of the editorials in the
36 papers also found fault

with King Hussein, other
Arab states for their various
roles and Israeli attitudes
and actions.

The survey noted that
two papers — Wall Street
Journal and the New
York Post — which had
been critical of the Rea-
gan plan when it was first
proposed in September
1982, continued their
criticisms and declared
that "Hussein's rejection
of the proposal proved
that it was unworkable."

The one paper which did
not assess blame — Califor-
nia's Orange County-Santa
Ana Register — seized upon
the incident to urge the
United States not to involve
itself further in Middle East

IJA Report Covers Plight
of Foreigners in Germany

LONDON — Foreign
workers in Germany are
facing a campaign aimed at
undermining their status-
and calling for measures to
encourage or force them to
leave, according to a report
by -the Institute of Jewish
Affairs (IJA), the research
arm of the World Jewish
The campaign has largely
been the work of neo-Nazis
and extreme right-wing
groups, the report claims.
The IJA report, under-
taken by C.C. Aronsfeld,
cites a number of organiza-
tions involved in the cam-

paign against "guest work-
ers." Although official can-
vassing for foreign workers
ended in 1973, the report
says, some 4.6 million
workers of non-German ori-
gin were living in West
Germany as of 1981. This
total represents 7.5 percent
of the German population.
Publications presenting
the foreigner as an undesir-
able alien have saturated
the country, according to
the IJA report. One pam-
phlet, "Integration of For-
eigners is Genocide," pub-
lished in 1980, is now in its
seventh edition.

Let My People Go!

You, who claim that social justice
is your sacred goal
Why do you my people torture
Tearing at their soul?

Is their well of tears not full yet?
How long must they flow?
Lift the weight of their oppression
Let My People Go!

They, who were among the bravest
In your freedom fights
Now stand stripped of equal status
And deprived of rights

Lives they sacrificed for nothing
Blood they spilled in vain
Their reward is traitors' stigma
And enslavement chain

You degrade their Jewish image
You besmirch their name
The word "Zionist" you defame
As a mark of shame

You rob them of their culture's wealth
And their spirit starve
Your slurs and libels as with knives
On their hearts you carve —

Jews unwanted feel and threatened
In their land of birth
Choking from the stifling hatred
Rooted in your earth

They appeal for-flight to freedom
This you don't permit
And for asking, persecute them
And to jails commit.

In the name of human justice
End their strangling woe!
Open up your iron curtain
Let My People Go!
