vices benefiting veterans,

The punitive intent of many
in Congress was demonstrated
several months ago, when the
House added to its immigration
reform package a provision al-
lowing states to keep the chil-
dren of illegal immigrants out of
the public schools.
That, according to several
Jewish activists here, lends cre-
dence to the view that legisla-
tors are pandering to
anti-foreigner hysteria, not try-
ing to reform a complex and
flawed system.
The effort to balance the fed-
eral budget on the backs of the
most vulnerable Americans,
Jewish leaders worry, is a pre-
scription for social unrest — and
an indirect but powerful attack
on American pluralism.
There also are a host of civil
liberties concerns.
The Senate bill, passed by a
97-3 vote, includes pilot pro-
grams that would mandate the
use of national computer data-
bases to verify that prospective
employees are here legally — a
proposal that strikes many Jew-

ish leaders as big brotherish.
The next step, they say, is
some kind of national identity
card, a proposal that Jewish
groups have long resisted.
Officially, Jewish groups hope
to blunt some of the most offen-
sive language when House and
Senate conferees begin ham-
mering out a final version in the
next few weeks; unofficially, they
are mostly hoping to avoid the
introduction of even worse lan-
guage.
"What we're seeing is a bi-
partisan spasm of reaction that
is very dangerous," said a lead-
ing Jewish activist who worked
on the issue. "Congress is basi-
cally setting up two classes of cit-
izenship, which is something
new on the American scene.
Those who were born here will
be helped by the government
when facing hardship — but
those seeking to live here by
choice will be denied any kind of
assistance, even when they are
here legally and leading re-
sponsible lives. This is a terrible
precedent for our own commu-
nity and for every other minor-
ity." El

Yad Vashem letter
Causes Anger

/--

/-

erusalem (JTA) — Holo-
caust survivors have react-
ed angrily to a fund-raising
campaign by the Yad
Vashem Holocaust Memorial.
In a letter sent to Holocaust
survivors, Yad Vashem said fam-
ilies could purchase plaques with
the names of loved ones who per-
ished in the Holocaust.
The cost of the plaques would
range from about $500 to $1,500,
depending on the size of the
plaque.
"After I received the letter, I
couldn't sleep all night," Paula
Tik, a 66-year-old survivor who
lost her family in the Holocaust,
told the Israeli daily Yediot
Achronot.
"I felt angry, insulted, and
hurt. I would like to remember
dozens of my relatives who per-
ished, and such a plaque could
be the only grave that memori-
alizes them, but I can't econom-
ically handle it."
Amcha, an organization which
provides support for survivors
and their families, said the pro-
ject was insensitive.
"We think memorializing the
victims of the Holocaust is very
important for survivors -,x) fulfill
a need to feel they have done

everything to honor their loved
ones' memories in a dignified
way.
Amcha would expect that
there would be great sensitivity
to such a matter, to ensure that
there is no inequality between
victims."
Yad Vashem said in response
that the "Cave of Remembrance,"
where the plaques are to be
placed, was only an additional
option for remembering the Holo-
caust victims, and that the idea
was first proposed by numerous
families who sought such an ex-
pression.
Yad Vashem has the "Hall of
Remembrance," where victims
of the Holocaust are commemo-
rated at no cost, said Avital Bar,
aspokeswoman for Yad Vashem.
The way for the new project
was cleared in 1994, when Is-
rael's Supreme Court rejected a
petition against it.
The justices ruled that Yad
Vashem was acting within its
statutory authority in establish-
ing the new remembrance hall,
and was authorized to receive
contributions for special purpos-
es under agreements reached be-
tween the contributor and Yad
Vashem.
