War Hero
Dies In Rome

New York (JTA) — George
Mandel-Mantello, who as a
Salvadoran diplomat during
World War II saved numerous
Jews and non-Jews from the
Nazis, died April 26 at his
home in Rome. He was 90.
Mr. Mandel-Mantello, a
Romanian-born Jew who ob-
tained Salvadoran citizen-

ship in 1939, was regarded
as one of the unsung heros of
the Holocaust. It was not un-
til 1989 that he was first
commended for his wartime
deeds, by being presented
with the Eleanor Roosevelt
Human Rights Award.
As first secretary of the
Salvadoran Consulate in
Geneva from 1942 to 1945,
he mass produced and
distributed some 15,000
Salvadoran citizenship pa-
pers to Jews and non-Jews
throughout Nazi-occupied
Europe. About 95 percent of
the holders of these papers
are believed to have surviv-
ed the Holocaust.
During the summer of
1944, when the Nazis and
their Hungarian collab-
orators began deporting
100,000 Jews a day to
Auschwitz, Mr. Mandel-
Mantello obtained firsthand
reports from two escapees.
He then circulated to the
international media his
"Auschwitz Protocol," a 30-
page description of the camp,
complete with statistical
data and descriptions of the
killings. Some 1.6 million
Jews are believed to have
died at Auschwitz.
This report led to interna-
tional calls by world leaders
to halt the deportations.
Following the war, Mr.
Mandel-Mantello helped
church and political figures
escape from Communist
Hungary through Switzer-
Funeral services for
Mandel-Mantello were held
this week in Jerusalem.

Students Charge

Rome (JTA) — Students at
a junior high school in nor-
thern Italy have complained
angrily that their edition of
Primo Levi's Auschwitz
memoir, If This is a Man,
has been censored.
Pupils attending the Can-
dido Cezzano school in the
city of Bergamo made the
complaint in a letter to the
left-wing local newspaper, Il
They pointed to passages
in the original work dealing
in blunt terms with bodily
functions and mentioning
homosexuality that do not
appear in their school edi-
tion. They said they were
offended by the "needless,
disrespectful censorship."
But the Einaudi
-publishing house insists the
deletions were made by the
author in school texts.
