Jewish Needs and Christian Deeds

Sunday, June 6, 1943

Unitarian Preacher Dr. Karl M. Chworowsky (1887-1964), President Chworowskyof the New York Liberal Ministers’ League, spoke out against Christian indifference to the plight of Jews under Nazism. “It is high time indeed,” he wrote in The Jewish Sentinel, “that these Jewish needs touch and touch deeply the conscience of Christian peoples and nations.” He listed three immediate Jewish needs: “relief, recue, and security.” And with the Yanks pounding Italy and Germany, with the Greeks rising against the Italians, with the French united, with the coup in Argentina – with the tide of war turning, who could doubt that war would end soon? And yet at home doctors and dentists under 38 without children born before Sept. 5, 1942 were being considered for reclassification and induction. Abe was now officially too old, aside from his medical disabilities, but still hoped that the Veterans Administration would be his way into the Army.
