The book, written by Herbert Agar, one of America's most prominent historians and winner of the HADASSAH NEWS TRIBUTE TO HENRIETTA SZOLD All groups in Seattle Chapter Hadassah will this month com- memorate the 100th anniversary of Henrietta Szold's birth It is especially fitting that her birth- day should fall in the month of December, Youth Aliyah month in Hadassah. Henrietta Szold was already in the twilight of her life when she recognized the urgent need to bring Jewish children home to Israel from the dark places of the world She devoted her re- maining years to organizing the I Linda Kaplan November Bride Evening Branch of C,J.W.

U.J.A. EXPERIMENT: Those who advance doubts about the future of Judaism in this country should have attended the first national conference of young Jewish community leaders from all parts of the country which was held in New York... Their pessimism would have evaporated as they listened to the discussions conducted at tnis conference by young delegates, each of whom has made his mark as a leader in his local community... None of the 225 delegates was older than 35 years, and it was therefore most interesting to observe how the "young blood" in organized American Jewish life reacted to Tart-' ous problems concerning Jews in overseas countries... It was refreshing to see how eagerly these young :Jewish men and women, some of whom are second generation American-born, were listening to the experiences in Jewish leadership related by Edward M. M. Warburg, Philip M. Klutznick, Dewey D. Stone, Herbert A. Friedman and others.. There was an atmosphere of really lively interest in the questions which these young leaders asked during the sessions at the three-day conference... And it was very encouraging to witness the fact that the future of American Jewish communal life is well secured through a growing generation of leadership which is strongly Jew- ish conscious and at the same time thoroughly American minded... Only two years ago, the father of one of the young delegates attending the conference expressed his doubt to me whether his children would be as interested in Jewish communal affairs as he was...A "big giver" to Jewish philanthropic causes and one of the most promi- nent Jews in a large Jewish community, outside of New York, he wanted his children very much to follow in his footsteps, but was not certain that this would be the case... He would have enjoyed it no end to hear one of his sons talking convincingly at the young leadership parley about the responsibilities of the young American Jewish generation toward Israel and Jews in need in other overseas countries... And it would have been even a greater joy to him to hear his son telling me later pri- vately that it was high time for the older generation of Jewish leadership in this country to make room for young men like himself in their ranks...

As an his-I Hadassahi was doing Hers was torian, he dug into facts behind the J. D. C. work which a deeply moral approach which could not have been revealed at the time they too k place. Some of these facts brought out by Mr. Agar are new even to "old timers" who have been following the J. D. C. work with admiration for what the organization is doing. They shed much light on the important role which the J. D. C. has played at various times in numerous compli- cated situations when the question of aiding or rescuing Jews has arisen. DRAMATIC FACTS: A good part of Mr. Agar's book is, naturally, devoted to the rescue work done by the 3. D. C. during the Nazi period... He reveals how several million dollars have been parachuted by the J. D. C. into the Warsaw Ghetto... He also tells the dramatic story of how the J. D. C. sent $60,000 by prachute into Nazi-occu- pied Belgium... He brings out in detail the "behind the scene" story of how J. D. C. aid was smuggled into Hun- gary, Slovakia and other Nazi-held countries from Switzer- land... He relates hitherto unknown facts of how the J. D. C. helped 14,000 Jews in Shanghai to reach Palestine and how tens of thousands of Polish Jews were reached with relief by the J. D. C. in Russia during the war years via Teheran...Mr. Agar has no compliments for England when he traces the role of West European governments in helping to save Jews from Nazi hands... But he has much praise for France, Belgium, Holland, Norway, Fin- land, Denmark and Sweden... And he describes the noble stand taken by King Christian of Nazi-occupied Denmark who, in standing up for the Jews in his rcountry, warned the Germans that he would move from his palace 'into the Jewish ghetto if the Nazi authorities insisted on establish- ing a ghetto for the Danish Jews... He also warned that he would be proud to wear the Star of David, if Jews in Denmark were ordered by the Nazis to wear it... Most dramatic and revealing is the story of a Capuchin monk in France, Father Marie-Benoit, who set up in the cellar of his monastery a factory for forged documents which made Jews into "Aryans" and produced for them pass- ports, identificaton cards and even food-ration cards. The Gestapo knew all about this priest, and killed most of his co-workers, but never caught the monk himself who was revered in France as "Father of the Jews"... Mr. Agar, in "The Saving Remnant," thus pays tribute not only to the humanitarian work done by American Jewry through the J.D. C,, but also to non-Jews who stood by the Jewish people--many of them at the risk of their lives --during the darkest years in,modern Jewish history.

The format and content has been greatly improved and our Ad- ministrative C o m m i t t e e has worked very closely with the publisher so that we believe we have a good Anglo-Jewish paper carrying local, national and in- ternational news of interest to our entire Jewish Community. We wish to thank Mr. Roy G. t chairman of a special committee of attorneys, with Mr. Ernest Steifel, CPA., as consultant, and they recommended the change from an association to a cor- poration. This committee de- serves our thanks as it required seve/-al meetings and much work to accomplish the change. No one can say whether or not there Wi!l be headlines in 1961. But the fact that more than half a million men, women and children still look to us for vital aid which they can receive from no other source should repre- sent a most urgent emergency for all of us.
