the Holocaust;' New York;
"Jacob Wrestling with the
Angel;' Toronto; bust of Ar-
tur Rubinstein, Carnegie
Hall, New York; and his re-
cent work, "Liberation,"
depicting an American GI
carrying a concentration
camp survivor to freedom
was dedicated May 30, 1985,
Liberty State Park, New
Jersey.
"Brotherhood of Man" earns
chief honor and current deep in-,
terest. Its theme is a notable
one. It is admirably depicted.
The statue, before being sent
to Israel for the dedication on
May 7, was displayed for three
months at the Hammerskjold
United Nations Plaza in New
York, thus adding to the world
interest in Nathan Rapoport's
latest achievement.
In "Brotherhood of Man:'
"Two brothers inherit a field
from their father, but out of
love, they decide not to divide

it, but share the crop. At night,
while each thinks the other is
asleep, the brothers add to each
other's wheat pile — one
because the other has children
to support, the second because
the first is single and has no
children to support him when
he grows old. Thinking the
phenomenon a miracle, the
brothers accidentally meet one
night and embrace."

A great work appropriately
belongs at the plaza of a great
Israeli cause, the Magen David
Mom, the Israel counterpart of
the Red Cross. The two former
Detroiters, Sally and Joseph
Handleman, whose generosity
made possible the work of the
skillful hands of a great
sculptor, and available for
Israel, -marks the significance
of it all. The statue and its loca-
tion add memorially to the
perpetuation in history of the
name of Nathan Rapoport.

THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

United Nations (JTA) —
Israel last Monday received
489 files on Nazi war crim-
inals from the confidential ar-
chives of the United Nations
containing the names of
36,000 to 40,000 Nazi war
criminals and their collab-
orators.
The files were handed to
Binyamin Netanyahu, Israel's
Ambassador to the United
Nations, who went with his
aides to the UN archives in
midtown Manhattan.
"This initial delivery is part
of the files requested by the
Israel government for the Yad
Vashem Institute for Holo-
caust Research in Jerusalem,"
Netanyahu told a press con-
ference here.
The files are in addition to
349 files that Israel received
and inspected in recent
months. Netanyahu said the
latest files contain the names
of and information about sen-
ior Nazi officials, Gestapo
agents, SS officers, death
camp doctors, camp com-
manders and ghetto super
visors.
"The information contained
in these files can shed impor-
tant new light on the person-
nel, organization and crimes
of the Nazi extermination
machine," the Israeli envoy
said.
He said that six countries
that were members of the now
defunct United Nations war
Crimes Commission support
Israel's demand that the UN
archives be opened to the
public. They are Australia,
Poland, Yugoslavia, Den-
mark, Greece and the United
States. The Israel govern-

-

ment will continue its efforts
to convince the remaining
member states to support
opening the files, Netanyahu
said.
Netanyahu gave the press
conference a sampling of the
names contained in the files
he received. Among them are
Martin Bormann, who was
secretary of the Nazi Party,
Hitler's personal secretary
and who signed a protocol on
October 2, 1940 which laun-
ched the Final Solution. He
was sentenced in absentia to
life imprisonment at Nurem-
berg on September 30, 1946.
If he is alive, he would be 87.
Another name was Otto
Abetz, the German Ambassa-
dor to Vichy who deported
40,000 French Jews to death
camps on July 2, 1942. He
was sentenced to life im-
prisonment by a Paris court
in 1949 but was released five
years later. He died in an
automobile accident in 1958.

New Fund
For Pollards

JERUSALEM — A commit-
tee has been set up "to send the
Pollards Jewish books and
publications from Israel,
together with letters of friend-
ship and support," according to
Yosef Ben Shlomo Hakohen,
committee chairman.
Jonathan and Anne Pollard
were sentenced to prison in the
U.S.,for selling secrets to Israel.
The committee's goal, accor-
ding to Hakohen is "to sustain
their spirits while they are not
yet free."
