Fall

LUBIAM

In January the New York
photographer, Eric Hartman
and his family, will open an
exhibition of paintings by
his late father, Max Hart-
man, who had once owned a
large store in Passau.
Anna is also agitating to
have Israeli singer Chava
Alberstein invited to the
town's summer festival, and
she dreams of exchanges
between Jewish academics,
schoolchildren, artists and
their Passau counterparts.
Why bother? Anna
Rosmus, whose third book —
a history of the Jews of
Passau — will be published
shortly, concedes that the
local officials and most
Passau residents are no
more enthusiastic about
Jews now than they have
ever been, but she remains
passionately commited to
her task.
"I can't change the mayor,
but I can use him to change
the ideas of the population.
In this town there are 50,000
people, 23 Jews and no syn-
agogue," she said. "My ge-
neration, my parents' ge-
neration, grew up without
knowing Jews or anything
about them. Through the
newspaper, through visits,
we can tell the story of the
Jews like Robert Klein and
make the people of Passau
face up to their own past."
Anna Rosmus fears that
without such a collective
stock-taking, the future is
grim. She already senses in
the new Germany an "ag-
gressive hostility to Jews,
Turks, refugees, homosex-
uals — to anyone who is a
little bit different."
"We have to fight together
against that kind of pre-
judice and hatred," she says.
"Politicians are not inter-
ested. It must be done by or-
dinary people."
Or, in the case of Anna
Rosmus, by an extraordin-
ary woman who decided to
take on an ordinary German
town.

Iraqi Invasion
Costs PLO

United Nations (JTA) —
The Palestine Liberation
Organization has presented
the U.N. Security Council
with a list of financial losses
Palestinians have incurred
as a result of the Iraqi inva-
sion of Kuwait.
While the document does
not make a formal request
for financial assistance,
observers believe it could set
the stage for the PLO to re-
quest compensation in the
event of an Iraqi defeat.
