Periodical Calls For Destruction 0! Israel GENEVA (JTA)—A monthly periodical called Imam which is published by the information department of the Iranian Foreign Office has been sent to the United Nations correspondents in Geneva. The title on the cover reads, "Israel Must be Destroyed." The editorial states: "The deliverance of the Islamic countries from the international imperialism headed by the United States of America is dependent upon the destruction of Israel which is the symbol of that super-power in that region." Neo-Nqii Admits Mistake BONN (JTA)—A jailed neo-Nazi leader has admitted that he erred when he wrote a preface to a book claiming the Holocaust never occurred. "Today I do know that in Auschwitz a large number of Jews were killed only because they were Jewish," Manfred Roeder said in a written statement to a Frankfurt court. Roeder, 53, a former lawyer, was sentenced last June to 13 years' imprisonment for heading a rightwing terrorist group and incitement against Jews. LOS ANGELES (JTA) —The condition of Jewish life around the world is characterized by "malaise, uneasiness and anxiety," Abraham Foxman, associate national director of the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith, told several hundred delegates at a plenary session at the 51st General Assembly of the Council of Jewish Federations. There is a growing concern that the condition of Jewish life "is altering, and not for the better," he said. "For the first time in a long time, the Jews anguish over Israel and the Jewish people." This concern has intensified in recent years with outbreaks of anti-Semitic violence on the part of extremist groups in this country and, abroad and by terrorist attacks, Foxman observed. The feeling of anxiety and uneasiness has also increased with the shift in the attitude of the general population toward the Jewish people and Israel, he said.' Foxmau said the shift has taken the form of viewing Israel as a nation which is no longer vulnerable. He said this changed attitude can be traced to Israel's swift victory in, the Six-Day War "which helped to erase the feeling of guilt" oyer the annihilation of six million Jews Jewish Commuiistiis DistroYed By Maiis Memorialiied By New Yad Vashem Project NEW.YORK (JTA)-Yad • Vashem, the Holocaust memorial center in Jerusalem, is launching a new six-million dollar project to commemorate the more than 4,500 Jewish communities destroyed by the Nazis in Europe. The memorial, 'named "The Valley of the Destroyed Communities," will'be constructed on eight acres of the Yad Vashem site on the Mount of Remembrance in Jerusalem. ' "It is envisaged that the Valley of the Destroyed Communities will become a major political memorial for many generations to come, and it is our hope that it will be built with the support of the Jewish people in Israel and other countries around Organiiation Aids liopian Jewry Mitoah Mobile 6ae§ To Lebanon Dr. Jeff Tiison, who recently led a Young Leadership Mission to Israel in behalf of Columbus Jewish Federa^ tion, accepts a box containing 50 transistor pocket radios from Rabbi David Stavsky of the Beth Jacob Congregation. The radios are going to Israeli soldiers in Lebanon so that they can be kept abreast of the news at home. The radios were purchased by the Beth Jacob Youth Group, N.C.S.Y. Chapter. The Mitzvah Mobile of Beth Jacob Youth Group, now inits tenth year of operation, visits the Columbus hospitals every Jewish holiday, distributing, religious articles, such as Chanukah candles and matzos to the patients. Left to right are Rabbi Stavsky; Dr. Tilson; Mbert Levy; Elizabeth Szames; Rita Kent, N.C.S.Y. Regional president, and Kenny Beckman, N.C.S.Y. Beth Jacob president. "The plight of "Ethiopian Jewry is becoming more desperate and we must increase our efforts to meet the challenge," says Nate Shapiro, the new president of the American Association for Ethiopian Jews (AAEJ). Shapiro, a Chicago businessman and leader in Jewish communal life, has accepted the role of national president of the AAEJ succeeding Dr. Howard Lenhoff of California. "We must highlight the life and death issue of the Ethiopian Jewish Community. We cannot let them continue to perish," he says. Right.now priorities for the kiSEi include a major educational campaign seeking broader support and involvement from the a^merican Jewish community; working with the U.S. Congressional Subcommit- (CONTINUED ON PAGE 8) in the Holocaust. "Israel appeared so much closer to safety and security" after the 1967 war, he said. A Change In The Historical Course In addition, Israel and the Jewish people also felt closer to safety: and security after that war and as a number of historical developments unfolded in the 1960's. Vatican II opened a dialogue with Jews, Soviet Jews were making their way to freedom (CONTINUED ON PAGE16) the world," Dr. Yitzhak a\rad, chairman of the Yad Vashem Directorate, said in an interview with the Jewish Telegraphic Agency. Arad observed that with ' the six million Jews who were killed by the Nazis, 4,500 Jewish communities were completely, destroyed in 22 European countries. "The destruction of these communities meant the destruction of an entire Jewish world, Jewish culture and Jewish way of life that was formed in a.course.of a thousand years. The Valley of Destroyed Communities will memorialize a world that has been annihilated which has sunk beneath the earth, leaving only its. ruins as an indication that it once existed in all its greatness," Arad said. Arad said that the names of the destroyed communities will be engraved in stone - on rockforms arranged according to their location in Europe. The landscape architects for the project are Lipa Yahalom and Saniel Zur, together with Elisha Haussmann. Their plan won the first prize in a competition in which 18 Israeli architects participated. The Valley of the Destroyed Communities project will be carried out over the next five years, Arad said. Its completion will complete the whole com- meorative site on the Mount of Remembrance in Jerusalem.
