A pamphlet issued by the
World Federation of Hungarian
Jews (Magyar Zsidok Vilgszo-
vetsege), with offices in New
York and Tel Aviv, presents
the horrifying facts about the
Nazi campaign that was con-
ducted to destroy the Jews of
Entitled "Eichmann and the
Destruction of Hungarian
Jewry," the pamphlet, written
by Randolph L. Brahart, was
published and is being distrib-
uted by Twayne Publishers (31
Union Sq., N.Y. 3).
Braham's compilation of facts
and figures makes this bro-
chure a valuable addendum to
the accumulating evidence
against the - Nazi criminals, and
especially against Adolf Eich-
In a foreword to the pam-
phlet, Frederic Gorog; presi-
dent of the World Federation
of Hungarian Jews, declares
that "Eichmann's design to
bring about 'the solution of the
Jewish question,' as the Nazi
extermination pr o gr am was
called, was nowhere as suc-
cessful and efficient as in Hun-

Spanish Press Raps
Eichmann Trial, Hides
Hitler Regime Horrors

LONDON, (JTA) — Spain is
exhibiting "a redurrent• nostal-
gia for Nazism," and the con-
trolled Spanish ' press is de-
nouncing the Adolf EiChmann
trial in Jerusalem as "ridiculous
and nauseating," according to
a Madrid dispatch in the Guar-
dian of Manchester.
The Guardian quoted Rode-
rigo Royo, editor of the S'panish
news-weekly, SP, as saying
editorially: "The Nazi-FascistS
were not as bad as the Jews
painted them. If there was some
persecution of Jews under Hit-
ler, the persecution of the Nazis
by the Jews in the past 16 years
has been infinitely more fero-
The dispatch quoted Royo
further as declaring "there
were no gas chambers for the
extermination of Jews," and the
Spanish editor continued: "I
have been in the German gas
chambers. They were technical
installations of the army for
testing the soldiers' gas -masks.
All that's been said on the sub-
ject is sheer fabrication. The
Jews invented an Eichmann in
Argentina. They caught him the
way you get a butterfly, then
- they indoctrinated him the way
a clown in a second-rate circus
is taught his role."
On the other hand, the Man-
chester newspaper declared,
"the Spanish press accounts of
the Eichmann trial have been
superficial, giving the impres-
sion that it is Government pol-
icy (since the press is State-
controlled) that it does not wish
to reveal to Spaniards the full
horror of the Hitler era."

Eichmann Trial Protest
in Germany Is Banned

BONN, (JTA)—Police in Duis-
berg prohibited a public meeting
of the neo-Nazi German Reich
Party, called to protest against
the trial in Jerusalem of Adolf
Eichmann, as a "wholesale. slan-
der of the German people."
The party polled only about one
percent of the vote in the last
West German elections.
In Munich, anti-Semitic slogans
were f6und scrawled on walls of
buildings in the Munich Fair
Grounds. Unknown persons had
painted such slogans as "Jews Get
Out" on several of the structures.
Police asked witnesses to aid in
the search for the culprits. 1

The catastrophic period • for
Hungarian Jewry is depicted
briefly but effectively by
Braham, whose work assumes
special significance through the

points to the vast amount of

literature about Eichmann's in-
volvement in the Nazi crimes.
