THE PALM BEACH POST Picking an appropriate the comfort shoe candidate for the professorship has reached an impasse. The Associated Press ! BOSTON More than three v In 1994, Kenneth Lipper, a philanthropist, businessman and former New York deputy mayor, endowed the Helen Zelaznik Chair in Holocaust and Cognate Studies to horror a family member who was killed in the Holocaust. Upper's only condition was that the professor be hired with tenure. Harvard would not have offered a degree in Holocaust studies. But students would have been able to take courses specifically on the Nazi annihilation of 6 million Jews. A committee of Harvard professors began interviewing scholars in 1995 but could not recommend a candidate, said Harvard spokesman Alex Huppe. Goldhagen was said to be Lipper's top choice, but Harvard officials said that would have had no bearing on the selection. The candidates also included Christopher Browning of Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma, Wash.; Dan Diner, a history pro years after Harvard received a $3 million pledge to create a chairmanship in Holocaust studies, the university has been unable to agree on a candidate, and about half of the gift has been quietly diverted to the medical school. 'The impasse apparently resulted from academic infighting over how to teach the Holocaust: as a study of Jewish victims and Judaic culture, or as a historical analysis of the Nazi perpetrators. 'The candidacy of Daniel J. Goldhagen, an associate Harvard professor, also disturbed some members of the search panel. 1 L..:. .ai...- 1 - IvkuI You Decide!

Goldhagen's controversial 1996 best-selling book, Hitler's Willing Executioners: Ordinary Germans and the Holocaust, contends that ordinary Germans, not just the Nazis, were responsible for the killing of 6 million Jews. He attributes the Holocaust to deep-seated German anti-Semitism. i By failing to appoint a professor, some say, Harvard missed an opportunity to take the lead as a center of Holocaust scholarship. Although many universities teach the Holocaust through history, religion or literature courses, few of the country's top schools have Holocaust specialists. ; "I think it's appalling that Harvard is not endorsing this field of study and is not standing behind it," Deborah Dwork, who runs the new Center for Holocaust Studies at Clark University in Worcester, said Tuesday. oecome nrm ana maxe you summer wnere u is necessary.

A few months ago, Lipper decided he didn't want his gift to remain in limbo. He shifted $1 million plus interest to the Lipper Foundation, a fund he had already established at Harvard's medical school, Huppe said. Both Harvard and Lipper still hope to establish the Holocaust chairmanship, the spokesman said. But the search has been put on hold. Salads in a Bag Who buys an entire head of lettuce anymore?
