Father John Pawlikowski, center, receives an award at the Holocaust
Memorial Academy. Pictured with him are, from left: Sonia Popowski,
Dr. John Mames, Abraham Weberman and Rabbi Charles
Rosenzveig.

A Catholic priest who works
toward furthering Jewish-
Christian dialogue to prevent an-
other Holocaust and the son of
non-Jews who rescued Jews from
the Nazis received honors Sun-
day at the annual Holocaust
Memorial Academy sponsored by
Shaarit Haplaytah.
Father John T. Pawlikowski,
professor of social ethics at the
Catholic Theological Union, re-
ceived "The Righteous Among
the Nations of the World Award"
at the gathering which filled
Shiffman Hall of the main Jewish
Community Center.
In a separate presentation,
Cezary Chorazyczewski, son of
the late Mr. Ignacy Chorazyc-
zewski, and Mrs. Helena
Chorazyczewski, who could not
attend the event, accepted a cer-
tificate attesting to the planting
of trees in Israel in honor of his
parents' courage during World
War II.
Accepting the award from Dr.
John Mames, chairman, depart-
ment of oral history and
Holocaust studies for the Shaarit
Haplaytah survivors organiza-
tion, Rev. Pawlikowski said he
felt "humbled" to receive the
award. He said he didn't consider
himself "as real a righteous gen-
tile as those who saved Jews dur-
ing that horrible period."
Rev. Pawlikowski said that the
survivors who chose to live each
day rather than give up and those
who built up the -State of Israel
"are testimonies for life which
help my work."
He said the non-Jews who
risked their lives saving Jews
during the war did so because
"the righteous gentiles believed
there was value to life beyond the
immediate moment." He con-
cluded "the primary lesson for
me: It is not madness to continue
to remember the Holocaust."
Bob and Ruth Forster, repre-
senting the First United
Presbyterian Church in Warren,
said they were moved by the pro-
gram. It brought tears to my
eyes," Mrs. Forster said.
Michael Fordonski of Oak
Park, an Auschwitz survivor,
said that even though such a pro-

gram is painful, it is necessary.
"If this program does not con-
tinue, people will forget. It is
necessary to teach people that
something like that could happen
again."
Messages were received from
dignitaries and government offi-
cials, and a resolution from the
State Legislature was presented
by State Sen. Jack Faxon. Repre-
sentatives from community
organizations and interfaith
groups brought greetings to the
assembly.
The program was completed by
musical selections rendered voc-
ally by Cantor Max Shimansky of
Cong: Beth Achim and on flute
and piano by Miriam Ciesla and
Rochelle Peterson. Children of
survivors and those who survived
the concentration camps joined in
a special candle-lighting cere-
mony in memory of the six mil-
lion Jews who perished during
the Holocaust.

D.C. Ceremony

For Holocaust

Washington (JTA) — The
rotunda of the Capitol was
packed Tuesday afternoon, as
members of Congress, Holocaust
survivors and hundreds of others
observed the annual "Day of Re-
membrance" ceremony marking
Yom Hashoah, Holocaust Re-
membrance Day.
Some 800 participants stood si-
lently under the Capitol dome as
Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel,
chairman of the United States
Holocaust Memorial Council,
awarded the first Eisenhower
Liberation Medal to American
soldiers and officers who liber-
ated the concentration camps in
1945. The medal was established
to recognize "outstanding contri-
butions to human rights and
freedom."
The ceremonies were marred
when Capitol police removed a
woman who refused to give up a
placard. Her .sign said, "Memo-
rial ceremonies are not enough.
We want open hearings on
Mengelegate," a reference to Au-
schwitz doctor Josef Mengele.
