FRIDAY, JULY 29, 1988

perienced before, and I
mourned for my aunt.
Fear is a legitimate human
emotion. All of us experience
it, and certainly the ex-
perience of Auschwitz com-
bined with one's capacity to
empathize can easily raise
that emotion to a conscious
level.
We Jews face the unique
dilemma and awesome
responsibility of converting
the fear, created out of
generations of persecution,
into a form of strength. We
must somehow instill that
strength in our children and
our children's children. And
so we must return to
Auschwitz with our children
and they with their children.
They must understand as I do
now
Our going to Poland really
has nothing to do with the ef-
fect it may have on the Polish
people. It has everything to do
with the effect it has on us as
Jews.
Anti-Semitism existed
before, during and after the
Jewish presence there and we
all know, unfortunately, that
it exists today. But to con-
clude that "Poland has slam-
med the door on us for the
last time. There is no reason
to sneak back in. Don't visit
Poland," misses the entire
purpose of our visit.

We must not be intimidated
by what happened there. On
the contrary, we must be
made stronger because of it.
Our demonstration of
strength can only help Soviet
Jews and other oppressed
Jews everywhere. We have an
obligation to somehow pass
that strength to our children.
Revisionist history, in
Deborah Lipstadt's view,
tends to remove the
Holocaust from the realm of
a supreme evil and provides
the Nazis and the Poles with
some excuses. She worries
that eventually, as the last of
the Holocaust survivors die
and the event recedes far in-
to the past, some • revisionist
notions could enter
mainstream history.
"Children today are the last
people who will ever know a
Holocaust survivor or
eyewitness" Lipstadt said.
"Starting now and certainly
in the future it may be possi-
ble for some people to believe
some falsehoods that would
be impossible to believe now."
I hope the experience of be-
ing at Auschwitz will burn
forever that horrible chapter
of our history into my
children's Jewish con-
sciousness. Then, they too
will truly understand what is
meant when we proclaim,
"Never Again!"
