Death camp survivor tc, speak at WVC North Nazi death camp survivor Tho- mas Toivi Blatt will s]aare,his per- sonal story in his program, Escape from Sobibor: Racism, Genocide and Resistance in the Holocaust," at the Wenatchee Valley College North Campus in Omak on Saturday, No- vember 21, at 6 p.m. in Room 301. The Washington Commission for the Humanities presentation is free and open to the Public. Blatt was part of the largest and most successful prisoners' revolt and escape from a Nazi camp during the second World War. The program will focus on the need to struggle against oppression to defend human rights and life itself. The one-hour lecture will in- clude video clips from the 1987 television movie, "'Escape from Sobibor," where Blatt is portrayed as a 15 year old boy helping to carry out the revolt. Blatt was born in Izbica, a small town in the eastern part of Poland. His experiences included many ter- rifying episodes while trying to es- cape Nazi prosecution. At the age of 15, he was imprisoned in the con- centration camp Sobibor. where his family was murdered and he was selected to work as a shoeshine boy for the Nazis. In 1943, the prisoners revolted and Blatt escaped. Hiding in a for- est, he was offered shelter at a farm, where he was betrayed and left for dead with a bullet in his chin. Es- caping once again, he was accepted into the Polish underground, where he was active in fighting the Ger- mans until liberation by the Soviet army in 1944. Blatt is now a retired businessman living in Western Washington. He has written two books on the Holocaust and lectures internationally. Camp Fire Groups collecting for aid to 'Mitch' survivors Local Camp Fire Clubs are col- lecting supplies to aid in the disaster relief efforts for survivors of Hurri- cane Mitch in Nicaragua. Camp Fire Boys and Girls has arranged community drop off sights for supplies at the East Wenatchee, Wenatchee, Omak, Moses Lake and Chelan Safeway Stores. There will be a large cardboard bin for citizens to drop off the following items: clean blankets, clothing, coats, bulk bottled water, toothpaste, toothbrushes, sham- poe, soap, towels, medical supplies, toiletries. It would be helpful if people would pre-sort their items by sameness (i.e., childrets clothes in one box and labeled, toiletries in one box and labeled). Supplies will be shipped in a few weeks to The World Vision Relief Organization in Federal Way where they will ship via relief plane to Nicaragua. Contact the Camp Fire Boys and Girls North Central Washington Council Office in Wenatchee for further information. 00caeemy students monitor Children's Chorus Fifth through seventh grade cho- ral students at the New Testament (Christian Academy recently spent a day practicing with and listening to me ookane Children's Chorus.

Tile music included a wide vari- ety of styles, ranging from African folk songs to the classical work Gloria by Vivaldi. Riggan said he is trying to expose his students to different types of music and different vocal techniques. "It was fun," he said. Of course, the kids may have liked the stop at LaserQuest the best. That is a room sized video game where the players are part of the action. Riggan and his students were ac- companied by chaperones Jinx Freels and Laura McFadane.
