Premier Shimon Peres, addressing a special session of the Knesset convened for the occasion, said Israel noted with "deep sorrow and pain" the "painful mistake" by the President of the United States who placed a wreath at the war cemetary in Bitburg, West Germany, where members of the Waffen SS are buried along with other German war dead. But, Peres added, he regards President Reagan as a true friehd of the Jewish people and of Israel. Hatred, he said, should not be answered by hatred "but death cannot obliterate the difference between those buried as murderers and those buried as the murder victims .. no monument can bridge the abyssmal gap between those who led to murder and those Congressman Pepper To Address Heritage Village Annual Meeting Mickey Schoenbaum and Allen Gundersheimer, co- chairpersons for the Heritage Village Annual Meet- Pictured li. to r.) are rauu ana Martin ureenoerg, coordinators of the Heritage Village Sculpture Exhibition/ and Jacky Brown and Donna Abrams, of the Greater Columbus Arts Council.. . , ', Claude Pepper ing, announced that Congressman Claude Pepper would be the keynote speaker for this year's Annual Meeting, scheduled for Sunday, June 23, at 1:30 p.m. The Meeting will be held on the Village Landscaped Gardens at Heritage House.

"We want to assure the (CONTINUED ON PAGE 4) who died in the murder." Defense Minister Yitzhak Rabin spoke in much the same vein when he unveiled a monument at the Heroes and Martyrs Memorial at the Yad Vashem May 6 before an audience of 3,000. There can be "no reconciliation, not with Nazism, and not with the Nazis," Rabin declared. The monument, massive granite blocks in the shape of a hexagon, represents the six million Jews who perished in the Holocaust and is also a tribute to the 1.5 million Jewish resistance fighters and partisans of World War II. , All of these events were' fyeld in the shadow of Reagan's visit to Bitburg, juxtaposed with an earlier visit May 5 to the Jewish memorial at the Bergen- Belsen concentration camp site. Reagan's act aroused anger ^ and anguish among Jews all over the world and ah unexpected controversy among Israelis. Rabin expressed what was probably the most forceful criticism of Reagan at the Yad Vashem ceremony when he declared: "There can be no reconciliation with | Nazism, with the Nazis and aU® related to them. The American President's historic mistake who to equate - the murderers and their victims. He can never' be forgiven for that equation — neither by progressive mankind nor by the Jewish people."
