1 Israelis To Aid
The Caribbean

Washington (JTA) —Israel will
help in agricultural development
in three Caribbean countries —
the Dominican Republic, Jamaica
and Antigua — under a project
sponsored by the U.S. Agency for
International Development
(AID).
The $550,000 grant was signed
at the State Department last
Wednesday by M. Peter McPher-
son, AID administrator and Am-
bassador Aharon Ofri of Israel's
Mission to the United Nations.
AID will finance technical serv-
ices to be implemented by Israel's
Division of International Cooper-
ation and Center for Interna-
tional Cooperation for Agricul-
tural Development.
AID has been seeking "better
ways of using the considerable
capability of Israel in connection
with our programs around the
world," Ofri said. "We are particu-
larly pleased that we can put some
of this competence at the service
of our Caribbean friends."
McPherson called the agree-
ment "a first modest step; we look
forward to continuing collabora-
tion in the Caribbean and other
parts of the world."
Referring to future U.S.-Israel
cooperation elsewhere, Ofri
stressed in particular Africa
where "hunger is killing
thousands of children and adults."
He said Israel is "looking forward
to a similar agreement to the one
we signed today for Africa."
McPherson said the projects are
part of the Caribbean Basin In-
itiative in which the U.S. is trying
to help countries achieve self-
sustaining economic growth. He
said the U.S. is emphasizing ag-
riculture in the initiative "in
which Israel's capabilities —
especially in irrigation and dry
land agriculture — are world re-
nowned."
In the Dominican Republic, Is-
rael will provide a plant
pathologist, a field crop expert
and laboratory specialists to work
on an AID project there. In
Jamaica, six Israeli specialists
will help improve the manage-
ment, operation and maintenance
of two irrigation systems on the
southern coast.
In Antigua, Israel will furnish a
long-term resident technician and
other assistants to help with the
"Bethesda Project," an
irrigation-based settlement in-
tended to achieve intensive veg-
etable production.

Museum Opens
On Camp Site

Bonn (JTA) — The East Ger-
man Peoples Republic opened a
museum at the site of the former
Buchenwald concentration camp,
near Weimar, this week, in con-
nection with the 40th anniversary
of the defeat of the Nazis.
The official East German news
agency, ADN, said the museum
would focus on the resistance by
camp inmates to their Nazi
guards. In line with past practice
the ADN announcement made no
reference to the fact that many of
the camp inmates were Jews.
