Eichmann Case Draws World Attention;
Germans Renew Discussions of Nazism

under international law is per-
sonally responsible for the crime;
he is not relieved from responsi-
bility, either because the act is
not punishable under the law of
any particular country, or be-
cause he acted as Head of State
or responsible Government offi-
cial, or because he acted under
superior orders, provided a moral
choice was open to him.")
Israel, it is understood, will
argue that, under international
law, the manner in which a
prisoner is brought under the
jurisdiction of a court is irrele-
vant.
Announcement of the comple-
tion of all preparations for the
opening of the trial stated that
accredited correspondents will
receive at the trial special tran-
sistor radios over which they
will be able to listen • to in-
stantaneous. interpretation of the
trial's proceedings in languages
of their choice—Hebrew, Yid-
dish, English, French or Ger-
man. Yiddish was added to the
roster of languages in an order
issued by the Israeli authorities
today. The protocol of the trial
proceedings will be published in
all of the languages.

Ben-Gurion Emphasizes
Significance of Eichmann
Trial to Entire World
.•
TEL AVIV (JTA)—The forth-

coming trial • in Israel of Adolf
Eichmann, the Nazi leader who
directed the annihilation of 6,-
000,000 European Jews, will be
significant not only for Jews,
but also to the world at large,
Prime Minister David Ben-
Gurion declared in an interview
in the evening newspaper Yediot
Achronot.
Ben-Gurion stated that "the
heavy. burden of the Nazi holo-
caust, which the ial
will revea

"Th • or
e faced
with the
entials of anti-
Semitism," Ben-Gurion conti-
nued. "The world should be
reminded, Eichmann's personal
fate is unimportant. It is the
unveiling of the entire extermi-
nation proam against the Jews
that matters." The Premier
pointed up the fact that the Eich-
mann trial should remind the
world that "the six million who
perished included the best of the
Jewish people, the very people
from whom giants like Chaim
Nachman Bialik and Albert Ein-
stein came."
Asked whether he feared de-
terioration of Israeli-West Ger-



man relations, due to the Eich-
mann trial, Ben-Gurion said he
sees no basis for such fears.
"There was another Germany
before the Nazis came to power,"
he stated, "and there is now a
different Germany. We are in-
terested in having friendly re-
lations with today's Germany.
But We want the German youth
to know who the Nazis were."
He said that Israel gave no
guarantees to West Germany in
connection with the Eichmann
trial and that, in fact, "Germany
requested no such guarantees."

Jews in Canada Urged
Not to Hold Public
Discussions on Trial

all foreign correspondents that
they, like all other persons at-
tending the trial, will have to
undergo personal searches when-
ever they enter the court com-
pound. The only -exceptions will
be judges and diplomats.
With almost all courtroom
seats reserved for correspond-
ents, foreign observers and legal
experts, only 20 seats will be
available to the general public
and these on a first-come, first-
seryed basis. However, 600 seats
will be available to the public at
Ratisbon Hall where the trial pro-
ceedings will be televised simul-
taneously on a wide screen.

Eichmann Trial Is Not
MONTREAL (JTA) — Jewish Directed Against West
groups in Canada were urged to Germany, Says Ben-Gurion

refrain from "any public dis-
cussion" of the issues in the trial
of Nazi Adolf Eichmann "at least
until the trial is over." The call
was issued by a subcommittee
set up jointly by the United
Zionist Council, the Canadian
Jewish Congress and Bnai Brith
"for the guidance of Jewish
community leaders in Canada"
on the trial.
"It is a great disservice for
Jewish organizations or leaders
publicly to debate the trial and
to build dramatic programs of
any kind around it," the state-
ment of the special subcommitte
said. "Indeed, recently cert
newspapers have extracted
of context remarks in su
presentation to create a
healthy climate of opinion 1
community."
"While the facts surro
Eichmann's capture and
coming trial are a stirrin
dramatic background for
kinds of programs, a m
higher duty in the interests of
the community, and the people
of Israel as well, demands re-
straint and self-discipline," the
nt stressed. "The com-
e, therefore, advises all
s, clubs and organizations

e and to refrain from panel
discussions, lecture s, legal
opinions, mock trials and any
public discussion, at least until

BONN, (JTA) — The German
Press Agency distributed an in-
terview given to its correspond-
ent by Israel's Prime Minister
David Ben - Gurion describing

The Munich Revue completed
this week a series on the German
version of Eichmann's "Memoirs,"
originally published in Life. Other
publications discussing the trial
included the weekly Die Zeit, and

over the possible impact of the
trial revelations in "reopening the
wounds" of the Nazi past. Most of
the comments agreed that the
trial would be held "fairly and

objectively," but Die Zeit wrote
the proceedings would be "a
world trial for all of us." The
weekly questioned the argument
of Eichmann's projected defense
that he acted "under orders," as-
serting that if this argument was
accepted, "all Germans were to
blame."
