ASUN to hold social
for foreign students
By Bernard Vogelsang
Getting international students
more involved and giving them the
opportunity to be better represented
on campus are the goals of a social
for international and American stu
The social, sponsored by the
Association of Students of the
University of Nebraska internation
al students subcommittee and the
Student Impact Team, is from 7 p.m.
to 8 p.m. in the continental dining
room of the Selleck Quadrangle.
At the social, international stu
dents will be able to voice problems
that may impede them from being
successful at UNL, organizers said.
Aaron Scheibe, chairman of the
international students subcommit
tee, said students from foreign
countries are underrepresented in
After hearing the students’ con
cerns, ASUN will start working
immediately on issues that face
international students, said Sarah
Kelling* a member of the interna
tional students subcommittee.
“We will do anything to make
their experience in the United States
better,” Kelling said.
Scheibe said the meeting also is
meant to integrate American and
In the fall semester, 1,481 UNL
students, or 6.6 percent of the stu

Kelling said she would like to
organize more socials for interna
tional and American students. But,
she said, whether that happens
depends on their response.

Book on Holocaust
available after delay
By Kim Sweet
Readers eager to get their hands on
a book that contains a unique perspec
tive of the Holocaust will soon get their
After waiting more than 1 lA years
while a book detailing the Holocaust
experiences of a Romanian Jew sat
unassembled in a printer’s warehouse,
University of Nebraska Press Director
Daniel Ross said the books arrived at
the Lincoln warehouse on Friday.
The book, entitled “Man of Ashes,”
was written by the late Salomon
Isacovici, a man who survived
Auschwitz and other Nazi concentra
It was written in Spanish and pub
lished in Mexico in 1990 with the help
of Juan Manuel Rodriguez.
The appearance of the book in the
1999 spring and summer catalog
comes after years of controversy
between Isacovici and Rodriguez over
authorship of the book.
Erica Kuebler Rippeteau, publicity
director for the University of Nebraska
Press, said she was excited about the
unique addition to the University of
Nebraska Press’ Jewish Studies collec
The book is unique because there
are few accounts of Romanian Jews
during the Holocaust, Kuebler
Rippeteau said, and Isacovici’s emigra
tion to Ecuador during World War II
makes the book important to increas
ing knowledge of the Holocaust.
“There are very few writings from
Jews who ended up in South America,”
she said. “It really contributes to the
body of knowledge of the Holocaust.”
While many of the books the
University of Nebraska Press puts out
are aimed at a scholarly audience,
Kuebler Rippeteau said, “Man of
Ashes” will appeal to a wide audience.
“The book can be read and enjoyed
by any lay person,” she said.
The book can be ordered through
the University of Nebraska Press or
local bookstores. While orders can be
made, the book will not be available to
readers until February, she said.
The University of Nebraska Press
made the decision to go ahead with the
assembling of the books last year.
Earlier, Rodriguez threatened to
take action if Isacovici published the
book in the United States.
The decision came after the univer
sity’s lawyers said they had a strong
case if sued by Rodriguez, who
claimed co-authorship of the book,
Herb Howe, press adviser for the
University of Nebraska Press, said in
Ross said minor changes were
made to the book to appease
In the University of Nebraska
Press’ catalog, the book is advertised
as being authored by Isacovici and
Rodriguez. Dick Gerdes, a professor
of Spanish literature at George Mason
University in Washington, D.C., is
credited with translating the book into
Ross and the lawyer representing
the University of Nebraska Press said
they would not comment on whether
legal action had been taken on the
