GUEST EDITORIAL 50 TH ANNIVERSARY OF EICHMANN TRIAL by Sal Giarratani Time goes by too fast these days. I remember May of 1961. I had just celebrated my 13 th birthday as a member of Sister Mary Honor's 7 th grade class at St. Rita's School in Roxbury. At night time I remem- ber watching the trial on TV with this old Nazi crimi- nal inside a glass box. Few folks if ever were awaiting the guilty finding. He had been caught by the Israeli Mossad agents in Buenos Aires and was finally stand- ing trial as a Nazi killer. My dad called him the other Adolf. Eichmann didn't seem sorry about anything except apparently getting caught. He actually regretted not having killed more Jews. Saying, "I could have done more and should have done more." He escaped Germany in 1945 at war's end. He was one of the biggest targets on the loose who played a major role in orchestrating the Holocaust. At the end of his trial, he was executed and the world cheered his death. Justice had been secured for all those murdered by the Third Reich. As the child born following World War II, I witnessed on my TV set the final chapter of World War II when the last of the big-name Nazi leaders stood before a court of law and paid the price for his murderous ways. Latest news about Eichmann seems to be the fact that West Germany may have played the role of Pakistan when it came to knowing the whereabouts of a mass murderer. In either of these cases, we may never know what either country knew or when they knew it concern- ing a worldwide target being hunted. Neither Germany nor Pakistan came out smelling like roses.

Dante Alighieri Saturday Morning School Closing Ceremonies and Scholarship Award by Bill Hart, Director of the Saturday Morning Italian Language School for Children Despite overcast and gloomy skies on Saturday morning, May 14, 2011, there was tremendous excitement abound for the stu- dents of the Saturday Morning Children's School. Dante President, Professor Spencer Di Scala and Education Committee Chair- man, Lino Rullo were on hand to present to each student a certificate of achievement for completing the 30 weeks of instruction for academic year 2010-11. The certificates were all signed by the President, Education Chairman, Board of Governors Chairman, Steve Maio, School Director, William Hart, as well as the child's instructors. The school has close to 120 students that range in age from 2-years-old through high school. The school calendar runs from September through May and classes are 2 hours in length. The only exception being the Pre-School class, ages 2 to 4, which holds two back to back l-hour long sessions. Also during the morning's ceremonies, Prof. Di Scala presented the annual Dante Scholarship to Jennie Bonanno. Jennie is a graduate of the Saturday Morning School, a first year student of Italian at North- eastern University, and a volunteer Assis- tant Teacher for the program for the past three years. The Bonanno family are long time Dante family members and Jennie's two younger siblings, Tina and Antonio, are both students of the program. Special recognition was also made to an- other Saturday Morning School graduate and current teacher, Giuseppe Formato, as he has announced that he will not be returning for the 2011-12 school year. He will be con- tinuing his post graduate Italian language studies abroad in Naples starting next Fall. We all wish him the best of luck and thank him for all that he has done for the school. Although this week marked the official close to the academic school year, the Sat- urday Morning School will host the annual School Picnic on Saturday, May 2P t at Great Brook Farm State Park in Carlisle, MA from 10:00AM to 4:00PM. This event will have crafts and pony rides for the children and provide an opportunity for Dante families and friends to enjoy a day of fun before we all take the summer off. Many thanks to all of the teachers and we wish that you will have a restful summer. We will see you all in September.
