Paris 15 (JTA) — The
Palestine Liberation
Organization and its sup-
porters last week were
reported to have abandoned
their bid for full membership
the Palestine state in the
United Nations Educational,
Scientific and Cultural
Organization.
Instead the PLO will settle
for a promise of future close
cooperation between
UNESCO and "Palestine,"
diplomatic sources here said.
Omar Messallah, the PLO
observer at UNESCO, claim-
ed that the principle of admis-
sion "has been accepted, but
a matter of timing and oppor-
tunity forces us to postpone
the debate."
The reported compromise
appears to end the PLO's re-
cent campaign for admission,
with full sovereign rights, in-
to several U.N. agencies.
The campaign was intend-
ed to gain respectability for
the PLO and international
recognition for the indepen-
dent Palestinian state pro-
claimed by the Palestine Na-
tional Council in Algiers last
November.

That effort has been
frustrated by the United
States.
The UNESCO compromise
reportedly was hammered out
with the active assistance of
the United States, which quit
UNESCO in 1985. The
Americans made clear that
admission of the PLO would
kill chances of their ever
returning.
The executive council was
to examine the request on
June 19. It is now likely to ex-
amine and adopt the com-
promise resolution, which is
fully backed by the UNESCO
director general, Frederico
Mayor Zaragoza.
The text of the resolution
recommends "closer col-
laboration between Palestine
and UNESCO." But it is not
clear if the text provides for
admission of the undefined
entity called "Palestine" as a
member.
The United States, which
maintains observer status at
UNESCO, wields con-
siderable influence because of
the chance that it might re-
join the organization and
make a substantial contribu-
tion to its budget.

ADL Remembers
Anne Frank's Birthday

New York (JTA) — The
small, gray-haired woman
climbed the marble pulpit
and addressed the audience
in a soft Dutch accent.
"I was Anna Frank's
playmate. We used to meet
after school in the big square
in Amsterdam south. She was
lively and popular and
although we were the same
age, she was already much
more mature. While we were
playing marbles, she was
already smiling at boys."
"I remember being taken to
meet her mother at their
apartment. Five years later,
besides a railway track in
Russia, after our liberation
from Auschwitz, I introduced
my mother to Mr. Frank. In
1953, Anna became my
posthumous stepsister."
Eva Schloss told her simple
survivor's tale at a com-
memorative concert last week
at New York's Cathedral of
Saint John the Divine, on
what would have been Anne
Frank's 60th birthday."
Frank died in the Nazi con-
centration camp at Bergen-
Belsen in 1945, a month
before British troops liberated
the camp on April 15 and

three months shy of her 16th
birthday.
The concert, sponsored by
the American Friends of the
Anne Frank Center and the
International Center for
Holocaust Studies of the Anti-
Defamation League of B'nai
B'rith, was one of the largest
events being held this week
worldwide to mark the
anniversary.
The ADL chose the occasion
to release a special Holocaust
curriculum for secondary
school students, and Double-
day also used the event to
publish an unexpurgated
critical edition of the diary.

ADL Honors
George Shultz

New York (JTA) — Former
Secretary of State George
Shultz called terrorism
"modern barbarism" and last
week urged the world to
"keep working to know what
a terrible thing it is."
"Every country has the
right of self-defense," Shultz
said, "and that is the right to
take the offense against ter-
rorists."
