German Ministry
Prevents Distribution
of Anti-Nazi Brochure

• MAINZ, West German y.
(JTA)—A West German Youth
Organization said it had called.
a special plenary meeting to
discuss a brochure on Ger-
many's Nazi past which the
Rhineland-Pfalz Ministry had
refused to approve for school
distribution.
The brochure was written by
Fritz Bauer. Chief Public
Prosecutor of Hesse, and pub-
lished by the province's Ger-
man Youth Organization. En-
titled, "The Roots of Fascist
and National Socialist Action,"
it was intended for high school
and college students in the
province.
The provincial Ministry of
Education declined to approve
it because it considered the
prosecutor's views as "one-
sided and objectionable." At
the urging of the youth group
the rejection was raised in the
Rhineland-Pfalz Parliament.
The offended- youth group then
announced it would hold a
plenary on Sept. 26 to which it
invited the prosecutor and
leading members of the Educa-
tion Ministry solely to discuss
the publication.

German Prosecutor
Reopens Investigation •
into Anti-Semitic Act

FRANKFURT. (JTA) — The
Hamburg Chief Prosecutor's of-
fice disclosed it had reopened
an investigation into an anti-
Semitic incident which occurred
at the annual meeting of the
German Association for the
Protection of Animals.
The incident occurred when
the question of Jewish ritual
slaughter came up at the meet-
ing, which was held last April.
At that time one of the dele-
gates yelled, "They ought to
go back where they came from."
An inquiry was opened then
by the Public Prosecutor but
the proceedings were discontin-
ued. The issue was reconsidered
on the basis of the fact that
such remarks were a factor dis-
turbing order and the decision
made to renew the investiga-
tion.
