Vienna (JTA) — For a cou-
ple of days they behaved like
good kids, these American
youngsters who were show-
cased not only for being
Jewish, but primarily as
grandchildren of former
Austrian citizens who had
been chased out of their home
country after the Anschluss
in March 1938.
One hundred of these
descendants, as young as 16
and as old as 30, had been in-
vited for a 10-day visit to
Vienna. They willingly ex-
pressed their feelings about
being here in the former
home of their forefathers.
They gave interviews and
were filmed for a television
news report on the project.
The young people listened
to the explanations of the
guide with anger, horror and
tears in their eyes. It was a
wet, cold day in April when
these kids . from the New
World heard statistical
figures about the barbaric
acts that had taken place in
the heart of Europe 50 years
ago.
"I am shook up, I feel sick,
imagining that 200,000 peo-
ple entered this camp and ex-
actly half of them were killed
systematically," said Rachel
Ruderman, a 23-year-old
custom jewelry designer from
New York City.
Her grandfather had a
small shoe repair shop in the
second district of Vienna,
where most of the 180,000
Viennese Jews lived before
World War II.
Dr. Leon Zelman, a survivor

of
Auschwitz
and
Mauthausen who now heads
Vienna's Jewish Welcome
Service, an organization
catering to tourists, initiated
the project and convinced
Austrian Airlines to sponsor
it.
"Austria has never said
`Welcome back to Vienna' to
those former citizens who
were forcefully driven out of
this country. Now we are try-
ing — late but hopefully not
too late — to help bridge the
horrible gaps of the past with
a goodwill gesture of today,"
he explained.
More than 1,000 Austrian
families applied to host at
least one of the 100 kids par-
ticipating in the program.
Many potential host parents
were deeply disappointed
when their offer was turned
down.
Most of the Austrian host
families had children of the
same age. They took the
American kids along to par-
ties, but also to the Jewish
cemetery.
U.S. Ambassador Henry
Grunwald, himself a young
Viennese Jew expelled in
1938 from school and country,
welcomed the "young am-
bassadors" in his home and
advised them to write about
their impressions of Austria.
The participants' itinerary
included sightseeing tours on
the Danube, visits to the
Austrian Parliament and the
central synagogue of Vienna
and an address by the
Austrian Chancellor Franz
Vranitzky.

Vienna Hosts Children
Of Those Chased Away

olice have launched
a full-scale investiga-
tion into the Molotov
cocktail bombing of a San
Diego Jewish newspaper
building, which had previous-
ly been defaced by spray-
painted swastikas.
The firebomb, hurled
against the one-story
building in El Cajon, Calif.,
that houses the San Diego
Jewish Times, ignited a blaze
early Saturday morning that
shattered two barred windows
and scorched the building's
front wall.
Garry Rosenberg, publisher
of the biweekly newspaper,
said that the Molotov cocktail

hit a bar protecting one of the
building's front windows,
which prevented the bomb
from landing inside the
offices.
"This is not a prank," said
Rosenberg. "This was a bomb,
and we have people who work
late. This was potentially life-
threatening."
A $2,500 reward has been
offered by the newspaper and
the Anti-Defamation League
of B'nai B'rith for informa-
tion leading to the arrest and
conviction of the perpetrators.
The newspaper had recent-
ly taken extra security
precautions, said Carol
Rosenberg, wife of the
publisher and the Times' ex-
ecutive editor, after swastikas
had been painted on the
