The first was a Shabbat service at Temple Beth El on April 8. Rabbi Harold L Krantzler gave a moving sermon on this tragic event in our history and the memorial candles were lit by Irving Mond, who had lived in Ant werp, Belgium during the Holocaust. Mr. Mond was able to escape from the Nazis, but his sister and 27 other close relatives met their death in the Nazi con centration camps. On April 10 a special ser vice, under the auspices of the National Conference of Christians and Jews and the Charlotte Area Clergy Association, was held at St. John’s Baptist Church. The Service of Remembrance and Commitment was led by Dr. Gene Bartlett, interim senior minister at Myers Park Bap tist Church and former presi dent of Colgate Rochester Seminary. Other leaders of the service were: Rev. George Battle, minister, Gethsemane AME Zion; Ms. Jeanne Bohn, community relations, WSOC-TV; Dr. Julian Cave, minister, St. John’s Baptist Church and president of Charlotte Area Clergy Assoc.; Rev. Sidney Freeman, minister, Unitarian Church of Charlotte; Rev. Wilbur Thomas, minister. Our Lady of Consolation; Mr. Jerry York, chairman of the Spiritual Assembly, Baha’is of Cabarrus County. Also participating in the service were the Honorable Eddie Knox, mayor of Charlotte, and Rabbis Harold Krant zler, Richard Rocklin and Robert Seigel. The kindling of the memorial lamps for the eleven million who perished was done by men and women who were personally involv ed in the Holocaust ex perience: Boris and Bertha Wojnowich, Solomon Baicovitz, Irving Mond, Sophie Spolender, Fred Stern and W.H. (Skeetl Eskridge. Perpetual Hope Ch'oir of Our Lady of Consolation Church with the assistance of Hulene McLean. The evening was highly in spirational for the more than 100 who attended. The annual Holocaust Square Memorial Service, sponsored by the Charlotte Jewish Federation, was held on April 17. Fred Meredith, director of education of the International Christian Em bassy, Jerusalem-United (Continued from Page 1) States branch, spoke at the ceremony. He reminded the crowd of about 200 that we should never forget the 11 million people killed during the Holocaust of World War II. He cited that just as Ger mans ignored what was hap pening because it did not af fect them, so we must be vigil and not ignore the in justices perpetrated today because we are not the vic tims. A candle-lighting service coincided with the reading of the names of Holocaust vic tims who have relatives liv ing in Charlotte. For those who heard their loved ones’ names read, tears and deep emotions were evident. For those who are too young to remember, we hope that they were moved to the extent that they will see that this well never happen again. State his first visit to a liberated concentration camp. I can only paraphrase his words, but they were to this effect: That he (Eisenhower) went through every nook and cranny of that infamous camp to make sure to commit it to memory, so that in the future, if ever someone tried to claim that these things never happened, his (Eisenhower’s) words would stand as a proof of the veracity of the events. What an uncanny premonition in the light of the present scur- rilous denial of the Holocaust. After the reading of the Governor’s proclamation, declaring the week of April 10-17 as Day of Remem brance of the Victims of the Holocaust, the Rev. John Lewis of the First Baptist Church, Raleigh, read the moving sonnet, “The Smoke of Buchenwald.” Six memorial candles were lit by six survivors. A memorial prayer was read by Rabbi Abraham Schoen of Temple Beth Meyer, Raleigh, v^nd Barry Silverstein sang me “Ani Ma’anim.” Oratorio Features JeroMC Hlnet A seemingly unlikely com bination of The Metropolitan Opera’s Jerome Hines and a 40-voice children’s chorus will join The Oratorio Singers of Charlotte May 7 at 8 p.m. The concert will be in the 2,500-seat Ovens Auditorium in Charlotte.

LOUIS ALBERT DIRECTOR OF SOCIAL SERVICES 3iunn Local Woman Attended Conference Holocaust Women: A Study in Survival, spon sored by the Institute for Research in History with a grant from the New York Council for the Humanities, was attended by Dr. Susan Cernyak-Spatz. A crowd of 400 packed Stern College for Women of Yeshiva Universi ty, on Lexington Avenue, for a two-day conference in late March. Organizers of the con ference were anxious that it be held before the passage of time and the generation of survivors makes the ex trapolation of women’s ex periences even more dif- hcult. Numerous questions were posed: How were women treated differently from men and how did they respond? What kind of work did they do in concentration and labor camps, in ghettos, resistance movements and rescue mis sions? What risks did they take? To what medical ex periments were they sub jected? What kinds of rela tionships did they form with one another? Did they ever laugh? What did they talk about? To that last question, Susan Cernyak-Spatz, now associate professor of foreign languages at the Un- versity of North Carolina at Charlotte responded, “Food! I never cooked as well as I did with my mouth in Auschwitz.” Relationships with other women were critical. “Bon ding with other women was of supreme importance,” said Susan Cernyak-Spatz, who was in three concentra tion camps, Theresienstadt, Auschwitz and Ravensbruck. “Without a support group you couldn’t survive. Relationships were totally dependent on one’s work situation, for there was no visiting after hours.’’ Her co-workers saved her life, she said, by dragging her out of the barrack for roll call when she was too sick to walk on her own.
