IS YOUR CHILD

Krieger To Head
Holocaust
Council

Washington (JTA) — The
United States Holocaust Mem-
orial Council has a new Ex-
ecutive Director, with President
Reagan's appointment last week
of Richard Krieger, a former
director of Jewish affairs in the
Republican National Committee
and, most recently, a State
Department official responsible
for refugee programs.
Krieger, who has also served
as executive director of Jewish
Federations in the U.S., wrote
the original proposal for the
creatiori of the Council, which
was established by Congress in
1980 under the Chairmanship of
writer and Holocaust survivor
Elie Wiesel.
The Council was created to
coordinate "A Campaign to
Remember," raising funds for
the US Holocaust Memorial
Museum in Washington, which
is expected to see completion in
December 1988. To date, the
Council has raised some $25
million, enough for construction
of the building which members
expect to get underway some-
time soon. Although they esti-
mate about another $75 million
as the cost for completing the
museum, staff members say
they ave confident that the
needed funds can be obtained.
The Council also sponsors the
commemoration of "Days of Re-
membrance," a Holocaust mem-
orial observance held annually
at the Capitol on Yom Hashoah,
Holocaust Remembrance Day.
But Krieger said the Council
would be pursuing other goals
as well, such as expanding its
outreach and cooperative pro-
gram with Holocaust centers
and institutions throughout the
world, and with civic, educa-
tional and religious institutions
in the United States. Ultimate-
ly, he said, the Council aimed at
serving as the national center
for information and programs
on the Holocaust.
The Council also plans to
create a Committee on Con-
science that would receive infor-
mation on genocide or potential
genocide anywhere in the world
and for dissemination to the
U.S. Government.
Krieger will be succeeding
Rabbi Seymour Siegel, a pro-
fessor at the Jewish Theological
Seminary, to which he returned
last year.
