Perel touches audience
with moving life story


by Sarah Gordon
With Solomon Perel's first
word, "Shalom," University stu-
dents were mesmerized by his
melodic voice and slow, gentle
words. The mood of his lecture
hushed the chaotic crowd. Audi-
ence members relied on his mov-
ing tones to understand the mean-
ing of his speech.
Perel delivered his speech en-
tirely in Hebrew. An English inter-
preter translated his words.
Perel - the subject of the
Golden Globe Award-winning
film "Europa, Europa" - gave the
keynote address for the Hillel
Foundation's 14th Annual Confer-
ence on the Holocaust.
He told of his birth to Polish-
Jewish parents on April 20, 1925,
in Peine, Germany. In 1938,, his

family relocated to Lodz, Poland.
Eventually, Perel was separated
from his family and was forced to
pose as a German soldier in order
to save his own life.
Perel said he was sustained by
his mother's parting words to him:
"Shlomo, you must live."
Last night he expressed that he
is still haunted by his childhood.
"I will not describe here the
heart-wrenching separation from
my parents," Perel said.
Perel calmly described the mo-
ment when he decided to deny his
Judaism and claim to be a German
in order to save his life.
"The distance between life and
death was like a hair's breath," he
He went on to explain that at
that second, he created a defense

mechanism within himself so that
even he would believe he was
"These same internal mecha-
nisms that were my defense
showed me that if I wanted to sur-
vive I needed to fully incorporate
myself into the world into which I
was thrown," Perel said.
He later explained the German
theory of race - which he was
forced to study intensely for three
years - to the audience members,
targeting the youth in the crowd.
"I saw that in this system of
education, the path from a man to
a monster is indeed very short -
no longer than the finger that pulls
the trigger of an automatic rifle.
But the path back is longer than
eternity. This is what all youth
around the world need to know."

Solomon Perel speaks about his life as depicted in the film "Europa,
Europa." This was part of Hillel's weeklong Holocaust commemoration.

Daily photo helps student retrieve stolen bicycle

by Will McCahill
Daily Crime Reporter"
When he picked up a copy of the Daily last
Friday, Engineering sophomore Jeff White ex-
pected to find a little news, a weather forecast,
some movie reviews and a controversial
He did not expect to find his stolen bicycle.
However, White gave the paper a second
glance after his roommate pointed out a bicy-
cle hanging from the South Quad sign in a
front-page photograph. He saw the bicycle had
a loose chain.
"I could clearly tell from the picture that it

was my bike," he said.
He immediately left his apartment and ran
to South Quad, hoping the bicycle would still
be there - suspended in mid-air by a nameless
The bike was still there, and White was able
to retrieve the bike, which was almost un-
harmed. He said the front wheel was a little
bent, but it could easily be fixed. In any case,
he said, it would be cheaper than buying a new
White said the bike was stolen from his
apartment more than two months ago, and he
had almost given up hope of finding it again.

He had originally taken the bike from a junk-
yard, and had never registered it with police,
he said.
Ann Arbor Police Department (AAPD)
Community Services Officer Corey Mills said
White is among a very small number of lucky
people whose stolen bikes - registered or un-
registered - are ever recovered.
"There is a severe problem with stolen
bikes in this city," Mills said.
AAPD and the University Department of
Public Safety (DPS) both encourage students
to register their bikes with police - or at least
to keep track of the bike's serial number,

which can also help police recover the missing
DPS Lt. James Smiley said most people
only report stolen bicycles to police in ordetto
be reimbursed by their insurance companies.
Many insurance companies include bicycles in
homeowner insurance policies.
Mills agreed, and said eight out of every 10
stolen bicycle reports filed with AAPD are fbr
insurance purposes.
Smiley said bicycles are often stolen by
homeless people, who then sell them af whet-
ever price they can.

Muslim enclaves yesterday, and

worst assaults of the Bosnian war.

Sarajevo and continued for a

is that someone has to stop the

Heavily armed Serbian soldiers head for the front lines from Matic
Polje yesterday. Heavy fighting for the narrow land corridors linking
Serbian-held territory and Yugoslavia intensified in the area of Broko.

In a French TV interview re-

operators, Gen. Philippe Morillon,
the U.N. commander in Bosnia,
said the stalled Srebrenica convoy
should arrive today.
"It has been agreed for the con-
voy to be tomorrow at 8 a.m. on
the demarcation line and at 8:30 it
should enter Srebrenica," Morillon
was quoted as saying.
