My Boss Was A Jew”
(Continued from last week)
It was Mr. Brown who arranged
time off for us, so that we could
attend Mass every Sunday morn
ing, and for the cheerful Irving
to drive us to and from the
Church in the village nearby.
At the end of ten days Ted,
Red and Abe arrived. They were
three Jewish boys, fine, sturdy
medical students from the Uni
versity of Toronto, to work as
waiters in the dining room. I soon
came to admire them greatly.
After a difficult year of studying,

ttstead of taking life easy and
resting, here they were, on the
jump all day, trying to earn and
accumulate as much money as
they could to put them through
another year at the University.
We came to know these boys well
and we spent many engrossing
hours in talking. None of them
apparently resented fate. They
did not feel sad that they must
work in order to go,to school. But
on the contrary, iff gave them a
sense of aliveness because they
must fight with fate for what
each of them wanted. And they
wanted to go to school, to gather
education to themselves, to be
great doctors some day. They
were alive, not simply living, like
we were—with our tuition money
waiting for us in a bank. What
we were doing was for adventure
and a new kind of holiday. With

them it was a necessary part of
their way of life in order to ac
complish their goals. These boys,
who normally should have been
enjoying themselves on a vacation
or in adventure, were reading
Shakespeare on their time off.
Now, when I think back on it,
it still,seems strange that a young
fellow could be waiting on tables,
cleaning a dining-room and after
wards run to the lake to relax and
read Shakespeare.
Our day of departure had ar
rived. A wiener roast had been
arranged on the beach for the
guests and for all the staff. We
stayed up until the wee hours
gorging ourselves on wieners,
sweets, nuts and drinks—singing
and talking. It seemed as if every
one there belonged to one big,
happy family. What fun!
But I will never forget a speech
that Red made before we left the
beach. It was directed tp us, I
know. I had noticed a terrific scar
on the arm of one of the guests
and had asked Red whether he
knew how it came about. He ex
plained that it had been branded
on the man with a hot iron by
the Germans for simply being a
Jew. A discussion immediately
ensued, and Red, with deep and
almost fiery sincerity exclaimed:
Do not instill hatred in people—
for your son and mine—and they
will be friends. If you do, your
son will never forget this differ
ence, and it will linger with him,
and distort his mind towards
every Jew he may ever meet. Do
not instill hatred in people—for
when you do there is no room left
for love and tolerance among
them. All people are equal and
all can be brothers.”
There were no more flames in
the fire. In the darkness I could
see nothing but the red tips of
cigarettes. Red was still talking.
I learned many things in my
adventure among Jews. I repent
ed greatly many things that I had
learned to believe before. I think
I understand that all men are.
equal and that they can be
brothers if only they be so taught.
My experience at the Tides I
have never forgotten. Here in Rio
De Janiero I have the opportunity
to teach other young people a
great truth that I have learned—
that we are, all of us, members of
one family.
