ionist leaders and
educators joined in
paying tribute to the
memory of Mary Friedenberg
Heyman who died in San
Francisco, Calif., on Dec. 9 at
the age of 83.
She is survived by a
daughter and son-in-law,
Judy and Sol Silver, three
grandchildren, all of San
Francisco, and a brother,
Charles Friedenberg of
Miami Beach, Fla.
Mrs. Heyman's 70 years of
Zionist involvements com-
menced with being one of the
organizers of the Ladies Aux-
iliary of the Jewish National
Fund and its third president
in 1930.
With her husband, the late
Samuel N. Heyman, who was
one of the chief engineers of
Fisher Body and General
Motors, she was an organizer
of the Young Judaea Zionist
youth movement.
One of her chief roles in San
Francisco, where she moved
25 years ago, was in
Hadassah leadership, as a
continuation of her Detroit
activities in the women's
Zionist movement.
Without reducing her
Zionist and then Israel labors,
she gained wide recognition
as an educator. She was in the
educational directorship of
the Shaarey Zedek School
which functioned on Seven
Mile Road in the 1940s and
1950s.
A Congregation Shaarey
Zedek member for 55 years,
she retained it as a San Fran-
ciscan where her synagogue
activities were among her
chief obligations.
Funeral services were held
at Machpelah Cemetery Dec.
11.

The Holocaust
And Ozick

H

olocaust literature,
theperpetuation of
the memories of the
most tragic occurrences in our
history, have become the
spiritually impressive means
of inviting the generations to
the humanizing of mankind.
Continually, the elements in
that literary power emerge
with growing strength to af-
fect minds and heart beats. A
70-page novella, becomes one
of the great instruments in
that dream.
It is The Shawl by Cynthia
Ozick, (Knopf) and is really
two novels in one — The
Shawl, 10 pages, and Rosa, 58
pages.
First published in The New

Cynthia Ozick

Yorker in 1980, its reap-
pearance now has stirred
critics to such a degree that
the New York Times now lists
it as one of the 13 most impor-
tant books of 1989.
In their selections, the
editors of the New York Times
Book Review have this
- analysis and recommenda-
tions to Ozick and The Shawl:
In the two stories in this
brief volume Cynthia
Ozick looks deeply into the
soul of perhaps the most
disturbing character she
has ever created and pulls
off the rare trick of making
art out of what repels us.
In one story, which
brings the Holocaust as
close as possible to the
claustrophobia and ab-
sorption of a fairy tale, a
woman watches Nazi con-
centration camp guards
kill her infant daughter. In
the next, Ms. Ozick ex-
plores the connections
among idolatry, maternity
and philosophy as the
woman — now . old and
demented in Miami —
makes a relic of her dead
baby's shawl.
The story of this brilliant-
ly realized character is ex-
cruciating but not depress-
ing; Ms. Ozick's art
mediates chaos and lights
the night of the soul with
flashes of insight about
culture and memory, and
with humor.
Cynthia Ozick's treatment
of the Holocaust theme in
The Shawl is as symbolic as
the emotionalism aroused in
the Yad Vashem in
Jerusalem, the Holocaust
Memorial Center in our com-
munity and the one to be
completed as a memorial by
the American people in
Washington. Her novella is
an account of the loyalism
that arouses horror over every
negation of the spirit created
by the memories of the Nazi-
created tragedy.
Ozick is indeed the Jewish
loyalty inherent in her tex-
tual genius.
