THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

Wallenberg Birthday Demonstration

NEW YORK — A "71
balloon" salute and a mas-
sive birthday cake — both
"symbols of life" — will be
among the highlights of a
public observance in New
York next Thursday to
mark the 71st birthday of
Raoul Wallenberg, the
Swedish diplomat who
saved an estimated 100,000
Hungarian Jews during
World War II and then dis-
appeared after being ar-
rested by Soviet forces in
1945.

The birthday party will
take place opposite the
United Nations headquar-
ters. The Soviet govern-
ment contends that Wal-
lenberg died in a Soviet
prison in 1947, despite the
release of 14,000 pages of
documentation by the
Swedish government last
summer which maintain
that Wallenberg is still
alive in Soviet custody.
Sponsored by the Raoul
Wallenberg Committee of
the United States and the

(Women's Clubs).

Anti-Defamation League of
Bnai Brith, the observance
will begin with a wreath-
laying ceremony at the
Holocaust Memorial Wall
on Dag Hammarskjold
Plaza to honor those whom
Wallenberg was unable to
save.
The participants will
then proceed to the
Isaiah Wall in Ralph
Bunche Square, across
from the UN, for a public
vigil followed by the
cake-cuttinkand the re-

Funds Aid Israeli Children

.

Officers of the Mothers
Club of the Jewish Commu-
nity Center recently joined
with Club Two of Pioneer
Women/Naamat to-present
a check for "Spiritual Adop-
tion" to the Greater Detroit
Council.
The spiritual Adoption
program provides support
for children in Naamat

day/night homes in Israel.
These are children who
have been referred to the
facilities by the Department'
of Social Welfare due to neg-
lect, abandonment or abuse.
The support given to this
program by Pioneer
Women/Naamat in the U.S.
supplies half of the funds
"My Michael," directed by

JWB to Distribute Israeli
Feature Films in America

NEW YORK — Five full-
length Israeli films have
been made available for
dsitribution by the Jewish
Media Service of JWB. The
films are all in Hebrew,
with English sub-titles.
"But Where Is Daniel
Wax?," directed by Avram
Heffner, is about a suc-
cessful doctor and a singing
star who come to a high
school reunion and look for
Daniel Wax, the popular
hero of their class. The film
emphasizes the importance
to Israeli life of relation-
ships and social groups
formed during childhood.
"My Michale," directed by
Dan Wolman, is an artistic
rendering of novelist Amos
Oz's work about growing
tensions between a young
couple. As Michael becomes
more enmeshed in his
studies as a doctoral stu-
dent, Hanna feels increas-
ingly isolated. They fail to
find the bond that once
joined them.
"Paratroopers" is a
film commentary di-
rected by Yehuda Judd
Neeman on the struggle
of a nation to build a
disciplined, effective
military that reflects the
civilian values it claims to
defend. Military service
in Israel is observed
through the inter-action
of a tough career officer
and an unstable recruit.
In Yaki Yosha's "Rockin-
ghorse," an Israeli-born ar-
tist, Shmuel Kraus, strug-
les to find his "lost r m-

ise" in the Promised Land.
After living in the U.S.,
Shmuel returns to Israel to
make a film about his par-
ents.

"The Wooden Gun" is a
powerful film set in 1950
and directed by Ilan
Moshenson. The movie fo-
cuses on two rival gangs in
Tel Aviv. Their behaviq
and their views of heroism,
honor, nationalism and
friendship raise hard ques-
tions not only about Israel's
past but its present.

For rental fees and
further information on they
films contact Dr. Eric A.
Goldman, director, Jewish
Media Service ofJWB, 15 E.
