racial and religious hatred,
the Holocaust bureaucrats
showed no visible signs of
hatred for Jews. I told them
(the teachers) the example of
how trains were sent to the
concentration camps by travel
agencies — how the same
man in the travel agency, for
example, who would calculate
the number of train cars and
time schedules for those
trains would, one hour later,
be scheduling the same kinds
of trains for German tourists
going to Greece.
"These were people who go
to church on Sundays. They
do know people like that, and
their students need to know
about these people — the
`desk killers', the 'ad-
ministrative killers' we call
them.
"We tell, in the curriculum,
about the loss of family and
the consequences — that's
what reaches out to the
students and gets them, when
they hear a person on our
videotape say, 'I was 15 years
old when I got off the box-
car,' " said Dr. Bolkosky.
Canadians — who had the
worst record of accepting
WWII refugees of any country
— are "doing a lot more
(about teaching the
Holocaust) and doing it more
quickly than in the U.S.," Dr.
Bolkosky said.
He said the typical
American textbook offers
about 75 words — "two
paragraphs and a picture" —
about the murder of the Jews
and Hitler's policies. Israel,
on the other hand, tends to
emphasize resistance
movements.
West Germany, whose peo-
ple "have done more than any
other country" in teaching
the subject, "seems to be

avoiding the fundamental
issues?' said Dr. Bolkosky.
"They teach about the
atrocities but offer no conclu-
sions — no discussion of anti-
Semitism, no social implica-
tions of how it happened, how
it evolved."
Meanwhile, revisionists
such as Moncton teacher
Malcolm Ross put out books
claiming Holocaust survivors
are people out to make a pro-
fit, that the camps were built
after the war — "it's really
beyond belief. . . obscene?'
said Dr. Bolkosky. One such
book quotes an engineer who,
after examining a photograph
of a mountain of clothing, said
the Holocaust never happen-
ed because "it was physically
impossible to stack clothes
that high."
According to Lorin Schip-
man of th_e B'nai B'rith
League of Human Rights in
Toronto (counterpart to the
American AntiDefamation
League), Ross has escaped
prosecution because Canada's
law banning the spreading of
hate has a loophole which
says a person can't be pro-
secuted for espousing his
religious beliefs.
"He's hidden his anti-
Jewish beliefs behind some
Christian fundamentalist
beliefs which state that Jews
are evil because they are not
Christians," said Schipman.
The New Brunswick
Human Rights Commission
is seeking to prosecute Ross
on the basis that a child's
right to a proper education is
being infringed upon by
Ross's teachings, but the
school board is reluctant to
release records of Ross's in-
struction because of the possi-
ble impact on other teachers'
records.

Culture," and "Aspects of
Communal Service in Israel:'
The group left Detroit Nov.
27 and returned Dec. 12. The
itinerary included seminars,
political discussions with a
variety of groups, tours,
meetings with professionals
from each worker'sspecific
area, plus hospitality invita-
tions, such as Chanukah
celebrations and discussions
in Israeli homes. The group
was based in Jerusalem, but
traveled to the Golan
Heights, the borders with
Lebanon and Syria, and Arab
villages within the pre-1967
borders.
Immediate
tangible
benefits for Detroit included
arranging
for
Israeli
speakers, artists and writers

to appear at the Center.
Other changes will take place
more slowly. The group will
make a slide presentation to
JCC officers some time next
year.
"We've come back with a lot
of really interesting program-
matic ideas," said JCC
physical education director
Candy Bousquet. "Nothing
different — we've all been do-
ing what I consider to be a
pretty damn good job of what
we do as far as progamming.
But maybe we're looking at it
slightly differently?'
Bousquet says her depart-
ment will join with the child
development department and
the senior adult department
to put on a regular Friday
