Jewish Woman Remembers Priest's Aid


A campaign to raise money to restore the bells of a Catholic church in France has been inaugurated here by a Jewish woman who fled from the Nazis through Belgium and France early in World War II. It was the priest at this church who sheltered her and her I3-year-old seri for four months as she sought to get out of Europe through Spain.

The woman is Mrs. Dora Kahn, a native of Bavaria, now an American citizen. She has been sending packages of food and clothing to the priest for the children of his parish, but recently received word from him that the steeple of his church had collapsed. Though the congregation could mend the roof. the priest wrote, they could not afford the 250,000 francs to recast the bells.

So Mrs. Kahn is now recruiting 50 or 60 friends to make the bells of Francon, Southern France, ring again with their message of brotherly love.
