sander Dering, who sued author
Leon Uris for libel last year, died
July 11 at age 62.
Dering had charged in a high
court case that Uris and the pub-
lishers of his book "Exodus" had
libeled him by saying in the book
that "Dr. Dehring" performed sur-
gery experiments without anesthet-
ics at Auschwitz. Uris admitted that
he had, in truth, been refering to
Dr. Dering.

London publishers reportedly did
not seek reimbursement of their
costs.

Democratic Party and shouted "Nazis get out." In Marburg,
meanwhile, 56 girls, students at the Friedrich Ebert High School,
completed Monday a three-day, self-imposed task of cleaning up
the Jewish cemetery there as a symbol of solidarity with Jews.

Plea for Convicted
Dutch Jew Rejected

THE HAGUE (JTA) — Justice
Minister No Samkalden rejected
an appeal from hundreds of Dutch
Jews for a new trial for Dr. Fred-
erick Weinreb, who was
in 1948 in a sensational trial whidh
involved charges he collaborated
with the Nazis during the occupa-
tion of Holland.
The petitioning Jews urged the
rehabilitation of the one-time
leader of the Dutch Jewish com-
munity, basing their appeal on dis-
closures in recent publications
dealing with Dr. Weinreb's acti-
vities during the Nazi occupation.
Their appeal was submitted to Dr.
Samkalden, himself a Jew, by a
number of Dutch Jewish Socialists
and Sen. Frederic Polak.
Dr. Weinreb was convicted and
sentenced to six years on charges
of treason after charges were drop-
ped that he had extorted money
from Dutch. Jews. Various organi-
zations came to his defense, in.-
chiding the International League

urged his release after he started

ing members of the Dutch Parlia-
ment, charged that Dr. Weinreb,
had been railroaded to jail to
cover up the collaborationist acti-
vities of some Dutch officials. In
rejecting the plea for a new trial,
the justice minister said that no
new information had been found
to justify a new hearing found to
