Holocaust
survivor
stresses
education
By JODY BECKER
"The safety and security of the
Jewish people and all humanity depen-
ds on education," Holocaust survivor
Jack Eisner told a capacity crowd at
Rackham Amphitheatre last night.
The fifty-six-year-old survivor of
Nazi concentrationcampssMaydenek,
Buechenwald, and Flossenburg and the
death march to Dachau spent much of
his address recalling his participation
in the uprising of the Warsaw Ghetto
which occured 40 years ago in April.
"MY GRANDMA, she lost all to
Satan-the German devil. But in the
end, she outsmarted them. She saved
her fourteen-year-old grandson," he
said.
Eisner recounted hiding under a bed
as the stormtroopers entered his Gran-
dmother's apartment and threw her
down the stairs as he watched from un-
der the bed.
"I could have killed them. But I
didn't," he said. "I stayed under there
and vowed, 'I will survive. I will never
forget you for you and all the thousands
of others who didn't leave a grandson."
FROM THAT DAY on, Eisner said he
functioned as a member of the armed
insurrection of the Warsaw Ghetto. "I

under Nazi persecution.
don't know how I can describe to you
why it was me (who survived)," he
said. The statistics of the survival rates
show that less than 1000 survived from
half of a million people. I am the only
one of 31 cousins. But, I believe they are
all survivors, because of me. Because I
can tell you about that world which was
mine."
Eisner said he has not been seeking
empathy through his appearances and
lectures, his best-selling
autobiographical account, The Sur-
vivor, or the Roman Polanski-produced
film of his story to be released this
December.

"IT IS NOT my mission to have you
shed tears," he said. "It is my mission
to educate and enlighten Jew and Gen-
tile alike of the Holocaust."
Eisner said his "greatest dream and
desire (is) to find a courageous German
barbarian (nazi agent) to travel with
me, a stormtrooper to tell the people, to
tell the children how he became a bar-
barian."
As a prisoner of the German concen-
tration camps, Eisner said all he
thought of was "revenge, revenge,
revenge. I wanted to kill every Nazi."
He said although "the Jews certainly
aren't angels, 4000 years of Jewish

ethics and culture" prevailed over
his desire for revenge. That is why he is
now touring to "unite the Jew and Gen-
tile in the education of the lessons of the
Holocaust," he said.
UPON HIS release from Flossen-
burg, Eisner was forced to join the
historical death march to Dachau,
which eventually led to his liberation.
"I was 65 pounds. Only a bag of,
bones. I took off my shoes, my shirt-I
could not carry them," he said.
When he saw the approaching tanks,
he had no idea that they were American
liberation forces.

Changes in GSLs frustrate 'U'

cent fee to be paid up front when a
student receives a loan.
In 1982, Congress shortened the time
students have to begin paying back
their loan from nine to six months after
graduation.
Reagan's proposed budget for the
1984-85 school year calls for extending
the needs test to all students-not just
those with family incomes over $30,000.
Reagan also said he wants to raise the
fee paid when the loan is received from
5 to 10 percent for graduate students.
Reagan's proposed changes have met
considerable resistance in Washington
said a spokesman for Sen. Carl Levin
(D-Mich.).
Harvey Grotrian, the University's
financial aid director said he also
doesn't anticipateany nore significant
changes for the program this year
besides an update of the tables which
determine if a student is eligible for a
loan.

collapse, so the propositions for 1984-85
and other changes are not as radical as
they have been in the past," Smith said.
The primary reason for all the
changes was to cut the costs of the
program, which were getting out of
hand, said Sally Kirktasler of the
Department of Education.
In 1981 the program cost $3 billion, up
from $500 million in 1977.
There is no way to limit the costs of
the program by reducting the budget,
Kirktasler said, because the federal
government only matches the loan
demand.
The government pays lenders back at
3.5 percent above the treasury rate,
which is very profitable for lenders. In
November 1981, when interest rates
were at their peak, the banks received a
20 percent return on the loans.
The changes, besides decreasing
costs, were an attempt to clamp down
on students who might have been using
loans for non-educational purposes,
"such as buying a Corvette,"
Kirktasler said.
The stiffer requirements, including
the needs test will also prevent the
program from being abused by studen-
ts who really dont need the loans, she
said.
"Our perception is that expanding the
needs test won't be an administrative
burden for financial aid offices,"
Kirktasler said.
"Students from families with in-
comes less than $30,000 are applying for
other kinds of student aid and will have
to submit their financial background
anyway," she said.
The changes have the biggest impact
on middle-income student's who count
on the loans because they don't qualify
for any other kind of financial aid.
Because the needs test takes the cost
of a school into account, students at the

University of Michigan whose families
earn up to $35,000 a year would
probably be eligible for a loan,
Kirktasler said.

Although it may appear the gover-

sabotage the program this isn't the
case, said Pat Smith of the American
Council of Education in Washington.
In fact, the changes that did pass
Congress were considerably less
drastic than the "draconian" cuts
President Reagan proposed when he
first took office, Smith said.
At the beginning of his term, Reagan
proposed that students begin paying off
their loans while they were still in
school, Smith said.
