Trial of Eichmann Indicts Allies
as Well as Germany - Goldmann

(Direct JTA Teletype Wire to
The Jewish News)

LONDON — Dr. Nahum Gold-
mann declared Tuesday night
that the Adolf' Eichmann trial
findings were not only an indict-
ment of the German people for
what they did during the Nazi
regime but also an accusation
against western democracy for
failing to respond to repeated
warnings before and during
World War II.
Speaking at the silver jubilee
dinner of the British Section of
the World Jewish Congress, Gold-
mann told a distinguished audi-
ence that many warnings were
given to the Allies, including
the letters of Dr. Chaim Weiz-
mann, but all of them were
turned down. Weizmann's letter,
appealing to the Allies to bomb
the Auschwitz murder camp and
the railways leading to it, was
disclosed by the prosecution, in
the Eichmann trial. Goldmafin's
audience included a number of
members of parliament and other
British leaders.
"I am deeply convinced that if
these warnings had been re-
sponded to, hundreds of thous-
ands of Jews could have been
rescued at the beginning of the
war, but they all perished," he
said.
He issued a dramatic warning
to the present Jewish world
against "self-optimism and over-
optimism," and added, "we have
learned a lesson from our mis-
takes but if we are going to
commit the same mistakes it
will truly be a crime.
"We are living- in the most
dangerous times of our century.
The century is most unstable and

German. States to Parol
Teen Swastika Daubers

BREMEN, (JTA) — A con-
ference of provincial ministers of
the interior decided to grant
special "political parole" to
youths jailed for neo-Nazi activi-
ties during the series of swastika
daubing incidents which began
in December, 1959.
The ministers decided on the
amnesty to avoid making "politi-
Cal martyrs" of the youthful
offenders.

likely to remain so despite ten
more possible summit meetings.
Any thinking that the Jewish
situation in today's world is stable
and safe is pure nonsense.
Discussing the Israel _situation,
he expressed full agreement and
admiration for Prime Minister
David Ben-Gurion "for his cour-
age in telling the people of
Israel about the constant danger
which embraces Israel. Peace with
the Arabs is as remote as it was
13 years ago and the whole
Jewish world must commit itself
to a tremendous effort no less
than the one needed to establish
the State of Israel."
He said such an effort was
essential to enable Israel to con-
solidate its defense and economy.

German Parliament
Urged to Force Nazi
Judges to Resign

BONN, (JTA)—The legal com-
mittee of West Germany's Bund-
estag, the Lower House of Parlia-
ment, proposed a bill calling upon
all judges and prosecutors, who
served in the Nazi judicial appa-
ratus in cases that ended in the
death penalty, to resign "volun-
tarily" within one year.
According to the framers of the
measure, there are 72 judges and
state prosecutors in the West Ger-
man judiciary now who were in-
volved, during the Hitler era, in
court cases that ended in the
death penalty for those accused
by the Nazi regime. The draft
will be brought up - before the
Bundestag next week.
A constitutional amendment
was being prepared here for in-
troduction in parliament after
next September's general elec-
tions, authorizing more stringent,
punitive action against all judges
and state prosecutors found to
have shared responsibility in any
inhuman Nazi death sentence.
Under the amendment, members ,
of the judiciary thus found guilty
of responsibility will be dismissed
without pensions, and will have
to face trial.

PAINE, WEBBER, JACKSON & CURTIS -

LONDON, (JTA)—Dr. Nahum
Goldmann revealed here that,
several years ago, he had asked
American intelligence officers to
find Adolf Eichmann, but that
ericans could not locate
the Am
the Nazi war criminal.
The Jewish leader, arriving
here from Paris, was asked about
reports in the Israeli press to
the effect that he had been
"aware of Eichmann's where-
abouts" but had only turned over
the information to American
authorities. The reports were
printed in some -Israeli news-
papers in the course of the cur-
rent political campaign under
way there, prior to Israel's forth-
coming general elections.
As far as the newspaper re-
ports were concerned, Goldmann
said, they were "completely un-
true." Then he added: "Several
years ago, I received a letter
from Austria, informing me that
the writer had reason to believe
that Eichmann was somewhere
in South America. The writer
asked me to ask the American
intelligence service to investigate
and, possibly, to find Eichmann.
I did so, and was informed later
by the American authorities that
they could find no trace of
Eichmann."

UNITED NATIONS, N.Y.,
(JTA) — Copies of Conde Me-
Ginley's "Common Sense,"-fea-
turing a vicious attack on the
Adolf Eichmann trial, were dis-
tributed throughout the press
section of the United Nations
by a man some observers identi-
fied as McGinley himself.
The issue distributed was
that of May 15, which devoted
nearly all of its four pages to
the Eichmann case. The distri-
bution apparently was planned
to -coincide with the visit to
the United Nations of Italian
Prime Minister Aminton Fanfani,
when scores of correspondents
were present. The distribution,
however, took place hours after
Fanfani had departed, and only a
handful of correspondents re-
mained. McGinley is not accred-
ited to the United Nations.
