of the speakers condemned the
anti-Semitic manifestations.
One of the participants, Paul
Schallueck, a German author, de-
clared that the fears of resurgent
anti-Semitism expressed univer-
sally during the height of the
manifestations of last year were
"exaggerated." "D e v elop-

stated, "have shown that the Ger-
