Doctor Defends
War Role in Suit
Against Leon Uris

LONDON (JTA)—Dr. Wladislaw
Dering, the Polish-born doctor who
has filed a libel suit against Leon
Uris, author of the novel "Exodus,"
and the latter's British publishers,
testified in the hearing before the
High Court here that he and his
assistants in the hospital of the
Auschwitz death camp saved many
prisoner-patients from the gas
Dr. Dering filed his suit because
a portion of "Exodus" mentions a
Dr. Dehring, as being concerned
with experiments on inmates at
Auschwitz. He claims that, though
the book spelled the name dif-

medicine here, said he and his as-
sistants at Auschwitz removed num-
bers from the chests of the living,

He testified that, when the Nazis
found he and his staff could wash
the numbers off, they introduced
tattooing. He said there was an
underground through which he had
been able to get drugs to help
prisoners, though discovery would
have meant death for all involved.
Uris and the publishers, Wil-
liam Kimber and Co., have ad-

book referring to Auschwitz
medical experiments was de-
famatory to Dr. Dering. But they
contend that it was true in

Dr. Dering said that as an inmate
of Auschwitz he himself was mal-
treated and subjected to all the
indignities of other inmates.
He also stated that his member-
ship in the Polish underground was
unknown to his German captors.
He told the court he does not in
any way feel that he had acted
against his conscience, medical
ethics or humanity in general.
The printers of the book do not
figure in the present action. They
had reportedly settled with Dr.
Dering by paying damages.
