HERITAGE FLORIDA JEWISH NEWS, MAY 9, 2014 PAGE 9A By Gloria Yousha -- Call 407-657-9405 or Movies bring back torturous memories... While trolling for a station on TV, I stumbled upon an old movie, "Cast A Giant Shadow," that I had seen before, based on the true story of Colonel Mickey Marcus. David Daniel (Mickey) Marcus was a U.S. Army Colonel who assisted Israel during the 1948 Arab-Israeli war, and who became Israel's first modern general (Aluf). He was killed by friendly fire, when he was mistaken for an enemy infiltrator while returning to his position in Israel one night. He was only 47 years old. (That movie got me thinking about Israel's inde- pendence and before that, the Holocaust.) And still watching TV, I turned to the History channel a few nights later and ColonelMickey Marcus saw two documentaries that shook me to the core. The first was "The Third Reich: The Rise." How sickening to see the love for and the need to obey the despicable Adolf Hitler by most of the German people of all ages. How joyous they seemed in spite of the fact that their neighbors were being turned against in such disturbing ways. The second documentary was titled "The Third Reich: The Fall." It covered Hitler's invasion of neighboring countries and the horrors of the Holocaust. (I found myself not caring when the people of Germany suffered the bombing of Berlin... not like me at all... I usually have compassion for all beings, human and otherwise. I guess box cars filled with dead Jews, piles of human bones and other nightmares were just too much for me to handle. I did feel a little better when German townspeople were made to enter the concentration camps to witness the unthinkable. Hitler, like the coward he was, committed suicide.) And still on the subject of movies... "No Place On Earth," a 2012 documentary about Ukrainian Jews hiding from Nazis, was shown on another evening. That The Holocaust Memorial Resource and Education Center here in town held a special Yom HaShoah program that featured keynote speaker, JOANIE HOLZER SCHIRM, the author of the book"AdventurersAgainstTheirWill"billedas"Extraordinary World War II Stories of Survival, Escape, and Connection... Unlike Any Others." (I understand the book is based largely upon her father's letters.) During the special ceremony at the Holocaust Center, sur- vivors lit candles to commemorate the occasion. They are (from left to right) HENRI GOODHEIM, HELEN GREENSPUN, INGE KOELE, HENRI LANDWIRTH, MARGOT GLAZER, HARRY LOWENSTEIN and TESS WISE. This deserving praise was showered on them: "We are honor- ing our local Holocaust Survivors. Each one has enriched our community through their hard work, their moral example, and their determination to create a better, more hopeful world. They are the powerful force that reminds us of the terrible price paid for bigotry and the tragic consequences of indif- ference and silence." (Beautifully said!) And life goes on... Would you believe, I own a set of golf clubs and used to play? (I can hardly believe it.) It's been many years for me but here is some very exciting news for those (most of you) who are more fit than I these days: Reserve your space now for the Jewish Pavilion Golf Tournament, taking place on Sunday, June I at Alaqua Country Club, 2091 Alaqua Drive, Longwood.

"Ghost, the musical" is arriving at the Bob Carr Perform- ing Arts Centre on Tuesday evening, May 13 at 8 p.m, and running through Sunday, May 18. It is being brought to us by the Florida Theatrical Association. The extremely successful movie is now a musical and promises to be every bit as entertaining.

He is Jewish. Though the wound was life- threatening, doctors performed emergency surgery and were able to stabilize him. Then he was flown to Israel for further treatment.

What could happen if a person recently learned English: Rivka went to her doctor for a check up. After the comple- tion of the exam, the doctor said to her "I must inform you that you have a fissure in your uterus, and if you ever have a baby it would be a miracle." As soon as she got home, Rivka said to her husband, "You vouldn't belief it. I vent to the doctah and he told me that I haf a fish in my uterus and if I haf a baby it vill be a mackerel!" Brussels mayor bans 'summit meeting for anti-Semites' (JTA) -- A mayor from The event, which was Brusselsbannedaneventthat scheduled for Sunday, was Jewish groups have called a organized by Laurent Louis, "summit meeting for anti- Semites." ; Eric Tomas, the mayor of Anderlecht-- one of 19 municipalities that make up the Brussels autono- mous region of the federal Belgian state--on Sunday said he would ban the "European Congress of resistance," saying it was a serious risk to public safety due to planned protests, the BBC reported. a Belgian lawmaker with a record of anti-Semitic and anti-Israel statements. One of the speakers invited was the French comedian Dieudonne M'bala M'bala, who has seven convictions for inciting racial hatred against Jews. The Belgian League Against Anti-Semitism, or LBCA, filed a complaint last Friday with the Brussels prosecutor against the event, saying that it would be "a day of hate that would serve as a platform for the worst gathering of anti- Semite authors, theorists and propagandists that our country has seen since the end of World War II." "The Belgian authorities ultimately reacted positively and promptly to our requests," Joel Rubinfeld, president of the LBCA, told JTA Sunday. His organization, he said, has been monitoring the planned gathering for the past two weeks. Organizers had kept the location of the congress se- cret until Saturday, when it was announced on Facebook that it would to take place at the Akdeniz book store in Anderlecht. Louis on Sunday urged participants to show up at the planned venue. Rubinfeld said his group is continuing to monitor the situation. "In the past, we've seen organizers of banned events switch venues at the last minute or shortly after the scheduled time and date, and we are preparing for such a prospect," he said.
