    Background: WARSAW, POLAND/JERUSALEM/BUCHENWALD, EAST GERMANY

    Jews and Catholic joined together in Poland on April 10 in a service at St. Augustine's Church, Warsaw, to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Warsaw ghetto uprising during World War Two. The Roman Catholic Primate of Poland, Archbishop Jozef Glemp presided over the service which included lessons read by Jews and priest. Cardinal Glemp said the ghetto fighters had chosen not between life and death but between "death with resignation and death with human dignity and struggle". St. Augustine's Church was within the walls of the ghetto, whose population included some five-thousand Roman Catholics among the Jewish community. German troops suppressed the uprising after three weeks of bitter fighting with the Jewish resistance during which the church was burned to the ground. It was later rebuilt in its original style. Jerusalem came to a standstill while the city marked the uprising and honoured the memory of six million Jews in the war. Primi Minister Menachem Begin told a ceremony at the Martyrs and Heroes Remembrance Day memorial that the holocaust was a lesson for the future. He said all Jews had to be prepared for new threats of destruction. On April 9 the former Nazi concentration camp at Buchenwald, East Germany, was the scene of a wreathing ceremony marking the 38th anniversary of the camp's liberation. Many of those at the ceremony were survivors of the camp, notorious for its use as a centre for medical experimentation. Internees were subjected to new surgical techniques, artificially induced diseases and toxins. Tens of thousands, many of them Jews, died in that way and in gas chambers at the camp.
