Vandalism Mounts in W. Germany, Argentina

(Continued from Page I)
the vandals were "either stupid
or criminal." The culprits are still
at large in spite of rewards for
their capture totaling 20,000 deuts-
chemarks ($4,000).
Interior Minister Hermann Hoer-
cherl announced in the Bundestag,
the lower house of Parliament,
that the government would present
documentation on the criminals
who smeared the Jewish cemetery
and synagogue monument in Bam-
berg two weeks ago. The Minister
said the documentation would
make it clear that the German
people as a whole had nothing to
do with the desecrations and de-
tested them.
He also told the Bundestag that
the federal government had in-
structed the Central Criminal Of-
fice to investigate the Bamberg
smearings, considered the worst
such vandalism in postwar Ger-
many. He said that he had asked
the Ministers of the Interior of
the West German states to report
all such desecrations to the federal
Central Criminal Office.
New desecrations of West Ger-
man cemeteries erupted last week
in the wake of the anti-Semitic
smearings of the Bamberg ceme-
tery and a monument to the Bam-
berg Jewish synagogue razed by
Nazis in 1938.
Another incident involving the
smearing of Nazi emblems on a
Bamberg monument was reported
Wednesday. City gardeners found
the local athletic monument daub-
ed with a swastika and such slo-
gans as "death to the Jews" and
"to the gallows with the Jew
accomplice Erhard."
Unknown vandals desecrated the
Jewish cemetery near Koblenz, and
rose bushes and flower pats were
overturned and uprooted at the
Jewish cemetery in Weissenthurm.
Rewards of 5,000 marks ($1,700)
were offered by local officials, and
police began a search for the van-
dals. Dr. Ludwig Martin, the fed-
eral prosecutor general, announc-
ed in Karlsruhe, he had begun an
investigation to determine whether
to take action in the Bamberg
desecrations.
The German Jewish weekly,
the Allgemeine Wochenzeitung,
said that the new wave of anti-
Semitic actions indicated that po-
tential murderers still lived in
West Germany and that it was
not true that an unmistakable
change in basic German atti-
tudes toward Jews had taken
place at broad levels. The week-
ly said that among the contribu-
tory causes for the latest inci-
dents was the reawakening in
West Germany of "national con-
sciousness" which was now being
courted by politicians for votes,
as well as the fact that Ger-
many's Nazi past was no longer
being condemned as outrightly
as it was ten years ago.

warning that apathy and indiffer-
ence by Germans in the face of re-
newed anti-Semitic vandalism and
abuse of freedom of the press by
certain publications to incite to
anti-Semitism could lead to the
abolition of constitutional rights,
was issued by the Central Council
of Jews in Germany.
In an official statement issued at
the conclusion of its annual meet-
ing, the Council said that recent
acts of vandalism directed against
Jews were disrupting "peaceful co-
existence" between Jews and Ger-
mans. All Jewish communities in
West Germany and Berlin were
represented at the meeting.
The Council statement said that
those who survived the holocaust
and the witnesses of the criminal
persecution by the Third Reich
"have a duty before history to raise
their voices." National Socialism,
the statement pointed out. succeed-
ed in Germany not because of the
strength of its extremist propon-
ents but because of the weakness
and apathy of those who should
have defended the state. Today the
question must be raised, the state-
ment concluded, whether the mis-
use of the freedom of the press by
certain publications "could not
awaken instincts of the past which
one day could lead to the aboli-
tion of constitutional rights."
In a poll conducted by the Wick-
ert Institute in Tuebingen, 84 per
cent of the respondents asked
about the latest series of anti-
Semitic incidents spoke out against
the vandalism while 16 per cent
expressed no opinion.
Argentine Parliament
Criticized for Inaction
BUENOS AIRES (JTA) — The
Argentine Parliament was criticiz-
ed for lack of reaction to anti-
Jewish activities in Argentina at
a luncheon sponsored by DAIA,
central representative body of Ar-
gentine Jewry, which was attended
by members of all factions in the
Argentine Chamber of Deputies.
Dr. Isaac Goldenberg, DAIA
president, told the luncheon guests
that those who should act against
such activities were "rationalizing"
the situation by blaming "irrespon-
sible" youths for the anti-Jewish
incidents. He warned that the
people were astonished by the "im-
munity and nonchalance" of the
perpetrators of the acts and con-
cerned over the lack of response
by Parliament.
Dr. Arturo Mor Roig, president
of the Chamber of Deputies, reply-
ing, stressed the responsibility of
a democratic society to deal with
such problems. Argentine Vice
President Carlos Perette declared,
in a message to the luncheon, that
Argentine President Illia had said
that his Government "would not
tolerate divisions or discrimina-
tions based on race, color, creed or
religion."
Interior Minister Juan Pal-
mer° announced that he had
asked Justice and Education
Minister Alconada Aramburu to
instruct government attorneys to
prosecute the left-wing Tacuara
movement for published state-
ments tending to incite to viol-
ence and delinquency. Orders
for similar actions were sent to
the Governors of Santa Fe, Bue-
nos Aires, Entre Rios, Tucuman
and Salta.
A leader of the local nationalist
movement, the Tacuara, charged at
a press conference that "systematic
assaults" were being committed
against Tacuara members by "Zion-
ist storm troops." The charge was
made by Emilio Berra, commander
of the Buenos Aires zone Tacuara,
which is not identical with the
left-wing movement of the same
name banned by the Government
after a series of open threats
against Argentine Jewry.
Berra charged that one of the

evtish National

attacks took place in Buenos Aires
when four Tacuara "youngsters"
were assaulted by 15 to 20 men
using hard objects. Berra said that
the father of one of the Tacuara
youths was hit in the eye and that
he may lose it. He said that the
injured youths were taken to a
hospital and that one of the assail-
ants, identified as Adniel Alberto
Spival, 22, was detained by police.
_ Berra presented to reporters
several youths, aged 17 to 18, who
showed alleged gunshot wounds
which Berra said were inflicted on
them during an attack on another
Buenos Aires street corner.
A delegation of the DATA, head-
ed by Goldenberg, was received by
Argentine Interior Undersecretary
Jose L. Vesco. The delegation des-
cribed to the official recent ex-
tremist anti-Jewish activities in
Argentina.
A leader of the Tacuara move-
ment, which was banned by the
government but continues to
operate, told a press conference
that the movement was "mor-
tally anti-Zionist" and would
fight Zionism with guns if
necessary.
The statement was made by
Patricio Erreculdte Pueyrredon,
national secretary, in the ab-
sence of Jose Bazter, its leader,
who is now visiting Communist
China. The secretary said that
the movement has some 200 fol-
lowers in and around Buenos
Aires and that it was training
youths in paramilitary tactics.
He said the movement was
strongly "anti-Yankee" but that
"we are not Jew-hunters, nor are
we yearning for the Third Reich"
of Germany. He said the movement
was not concerned with Jews, "ex-
cept when they are Zionists." He
emphasized the movement's "soli-
darity" with the Arab world and
said it favored the rettu-n to power
in Argentina of deposed dictator
Juan Peron.
