died in 1981, Lewin received
a phone call from Schmeling.
"Max asked me to attend the
funeral and give Joe's widow
a substantial sum of money,
which I did," said Lewin.
"But Max didn't want any
publicity about that, either."
Lewin decided to override
Schmeling's request and go
public at the Sands party, he
said, because "Max is 84,
though in excellent shape,
and I am 67, and I wasn't
sure how much longer both
of us would last."
Shortly after
Kristallnacht, Lewin and his
brother were picked up by
the police and held in prison
for six days, but then releas-
ed.

The Lewin family decided
it was time to get out of
Germany and settled in
Shanghai. David Lewin, the
father, started managing a
hotel, but after Pearl Harbor
and the city's conquest by
the Japanese army, the
Lewins were interned in a
camp for the duration of the
war. They survived, but
almost all their relatives
perished in Nazi concentra-
tion camps.
In 1946, the family moved
to San Francisco and went
back into the hotel business.
Henri Lewin eventually
became vice president of the
Las Vegas Hilton and eight
months ago was named pres-
ident of the Sands.

where Honda has heeded the
Arab boycott for years.
Although Honda of
America guaranteed the
parts when the export deal
was concluded several mon-
ths ago, the Israeli Foreign
Ministry insisted on a public
statement from Honda
headquarters in Tokyo as a
condition for importing the
cars into Israel.
Four smaller Japanese
auto manufacturers have
been selling cars in Israel for
several years. They are Mit-
subishi, Subaru, Daihatsu
and Suzuki.
