great efforts to promote
sales of books and sales of
rights for foreign editions
during the fair. The aisles
and booths in the conven-
tion center are crowded
with commercial conversa-
tions regarding new books,
projects, and authors. Best-
selling Israeli writers visit
with their international
publishers and new young
writers attempt to make
the right contacts. Amos
Oz and A.B. Yehoshua were
among the many
attending.
Among the special
features this year was the
award of the Jerusalem
Prize to the Argentine
writer Ernesto Sabato. An
editorial fellowship pro-
gram brings in young
editors from the U.S., U.K.
and Europe. The Aspen
Forum held sessions on in-
ternational Publishing.
The 4th Symposium on
Reading had John Y. Cole
(Center for the Book,
Library of Congress) as the
moderator.
It is truly a working book
fair but with a warm
welcoming atmosphere
generated by Teddy Kollek
and the many "old
regular" attendees from all
over the world.
Because of the amazing
regard for books in Israel,
the fair is opened to the
public every afternoon and
Saturday and Sunday
evening. It is a wonderful
sight to see the young
Israelis spending so much
time looking and touching
the books. I have never
seen anything like it in the
U.S.
The respect for book
culture is a strong force in
Israeli society and im-
presses the visitors from
abroad as it should.
What a remarkable account
of
highly-standardized
cultural
aims
and
achievements!
What a pity that while
news stories, often exag-
gerated, are about atrocities,
an event attended over a
period of several days in
Jerusalem by more than
60,000 has been kept a secret.
It was therefore realistic for
Toby Holtzman to add to his
report the announcement
that the next Jerusalem Book
Fair is scheduled for March
1991, and his invitation is
"Prepare for it
and plan to join us at that im-
portant function."
There is one basic fact in
Israel's destiny to be
reiterated in every salutation:
The door to the Jewish State
is always open, with a
welcome sign to all aspiring

settlers. In at least one coun-
try, the USSR, an aspiriing
emigrant must designate
Israel to secure an exit visa.
Fulfillment of all aliyah
aspirations with Israel as
redeemer will spell fulfill-
ment of the historic and
Zionist ideals. To that end the
"Happy Anniversary" saluta-
tion, on Israel's 41st year and
always, will have meaning as
a glorifying salute to the
Jewish State from world
Jewry.



Walter Reuther

ongoing confrontation, she
told us about her own
daughter, who had rejected
her father for years. "She
embraced Marx and Lenin
as her real fathers. Now
finally she acknowledges
Meyer. On his last birthday
she wrote him a card say-
ing, 'Now I realize you are
my only father.' How dif-
ficult are these youthful
quests:'
Then there is the descrip-
tion of the ceremony marking
the tribute to Reuther:
Sunday, the first of
December (1969), the Weiz-
mann Institute designated
as Reuther Day. In the
morning we toured the In-
stitute and placed a wreath
on the grave of Dr. Chaim
Weizmann, Israel's
scientist-statesman and
first president.
The ceremony honoring
father started at noon.
After several short
salutations, Professor Joel
Gat read the scroll honor-
ing father, then called upon
him to speak. The at-
mosphere grew solemn
and silent. Father moved to
the microphone, his lips
quivering with emotion.
"We hold the future in our
hands," he began. "Man
must realize the insanity of
trying to win a nuclear
war. The only war we can
now fight is the war
against disease, ignorance,
and poverty. This is the
enemy which degrades
man, robs him of his
greatest potential?'
That evening we attend-
ed a concert of the Israel
Philharmonic Orchestra,
dedicated to father.
A volume dedicated to
Reuther's leadership as labor
leader with revelations about
the labor-capital war in the
auto industry therefore also
retains the importance of the
acclaim to Reuther at the
Weizmann Institute. All are
historic functions deserving
remembering. ❑
