"My family learned about
the Heatherwood lifestyle...

the building into a memorial
to the Polish victims of
World War H. The society
and Mother Therese planned
to unveil a plaque dedicating
the memorial at a news con-
ference.
But their plan may not get
far, according to Stanislaw
Krajewski, a Polish consul-
tant to the American Jewish
Committee. He said that
local authorities are trying
to stop them.
The nuns have a 99-year
lease with the city of
Oswiecim, which has
jurisdiction over the theater
building. And the lease
stipulates that the building
may only be used as a con-
vent.
Dariusz Dulnik, the mayor
of Oswiecim, where
Auschwitz is located, has al-
ready declared that he will
break his lease agreement
with the Carmelite nuns in
order to prevent the building
from becoming a memorial,
according to Mr. Krajewski.
Mother Therese made her
deal with the nationalist
society on June 29 without
consulting church or local
government officials, he
said, and local officials have
already announced their op-
position to the plan.
There has been no public
statement made by Polish or
Vatican officials on the
matter.
It is not clear why the city
of Oswiecim oversees the
theater building when the
rest of Auschwitz is ap-
parently unaer urie juribuie-
tion of the Auschwitz State
Museum.
During a two-week
waiting period required by
Polish law before the con-
tract between Mother
Therese and the society goes
into effect, the local au-
thorities intend to contest
the legality of the nun's ar-
rangement, according to
Rabbi A. James Rudin, di-
rector of interreligious af-
fairs for the American Jew-
ish Committee.
The matter may end up in
the hands of Polish courts.
Mr. Rudin described
Mother Therese's move as "a
ploy," and said that if the
case gets tied up in court, the
result is that "we are still
left with a situation delay-
ing the final disposition of
the convent, which we want-
ed to have concluded yester-
day."

Neither in love nor in work,
neither in society nor in
solitude, neither in the arts
nor in the sciences will the
world of actuality permit us
to attain perfection.
—Morris R. Cohen

Now, my family has peace of mind...and I'm having the time of my life!"
