"When I came to this
country," Isaac Bashevis
Singer said in a recent
interview with The Jewish
News, "I had a feeling that
assimilation had gone so far
that-the Jews here had for-
gotten their roots. Thank
God, it did not happen. They
care about Israel. They care
about Jews in other coun-
tries. They are educated. In
Poland, the average Jew
never went to college or the
university. They were edu-
cated in the Talmud and in
--Jewish things. But they
didn't have general knowl-
edge. The average Ameri-
can Jew is an educated
man. Educated people are
more polite, more friendly.
They behave in a better way

than simple people. Ameri-
can Jews are educated
people who care about their
roots."
But American Jews also
have their mistakes. They
are always ready to fight, to
express their opinions, to
protest. In some cases,. I
think it would be healthy to
be a little more modest, a
little more silent. We don't
have to immediately accuse
someone of being an anti-
Semite. I myself have said
all kinds of things about
Gentiles and about women.
That doesn't mean I'm an
anti-feminist or Pm anti-
Gentile. We should not be in
a rush to say that someone
is an enemy of the Jewish
people."

New York (JTA) — Paraguay
has begun what was described
here as a thorough investigation
to locate Dr. Josef Mengele, the
infamous Nazi war criminal and
chief doctor at the Auschwitz con-
centration camp responsible for
the murder of tens of thousands of
Jews during World War II.
The investigation will be con-
ducted by police authorities in
Paraguay under the Ministry of
Interior, according to Elizabeth
Holtzman, Brooklyn district at-
torney who just returned from a
three-day visit to Paraguay as a
member of a delegation of four pe-
rons who travelled there under
the sponsorship of the Interna-
tional Network of Children of
Jewish Holocaust Survivors.
Furthermore, Holtzman told
reporters, Paraguayan officials
have also agreed to allow foreign
observers to monitor the investi-
gation and will allow for written
questions to be submitted to the
government about the whereab-
outs of Mengele who is believed to
be living in Paraguay.
Holtzman said she has con-
tacted the Justice Department's
Office of Special Investigations on
the matter of observers to the in-
vestigation.
Holtzman, who was instrumen-
tal as a member of Congress in the
estabishment of the OSI, was
flanked at the news conference by
the other members of the delega-
tion: Menachem Rosensaft, found-

ing chairman of the International
Network of Children of Jewish
Holocaust Survivors; Beate
Klarsfeld, who has brought a
number of Nazi war criminals to
justice; and Bishop Rene Valero of
the Roman Catholic Diocese of
Brooklyn.
During the delegation's stay in
Paraguay, they met with Justice
and Labor Minister J. Eugenio
Jacquet, Supreme Court
President Luis Maria Argana and
Interior Minister Sabino Monta-
naro. They did not meet with
President Alfredo Stroessner, al-
though a meeting had been re-
quested.
Mengele, who would now be 74
years old, received Paraguayan
citizensip in 1959, which was re-
voked in 1979. Since 1962, West
Germany has issued at least ten
requests to Paraguay for
Mengele's extradition. He is
wanted in West Germany for
crimes against humanity.
Holtzman described the delega-
tion's visit as a success, noting
that this marked the first time the
government has agreed to answer
formal written questions on
Mengele.
The Brooklyn District Attorney
also called on the Reagan Ad-
ministraton to press the issue of
Mengele with the Stroessner gov-
ernment, saying yt should become
a top priority in dealngs with
Paraguay.
