Fugitive in Argentina,
Says Argosy 'Exclusive'

(Direct JTA Teletype Wire
to The. Jewish News)

NEW YORK — The current

issue of Argosy Magazine contains
photographs which the . magazine
said were of Martin 'Bormann,
Hitler's long-missing deputy, pur-
portedly taken at Bormann'S "Ar-
gentine hideout." Bormann has
variously been reported killed in
the Soviet bombardment of Berlin
in 1945 and later seen or reported
in at least three South American
The photographs, described by
the magazine as exclusive, show
what Argosy claims are Bormann
and other former Nazi leaders
hunting. The accompanying article
included statements by several
people who asserted they had seen
Bormann face to face, including
the wife' of his family doctor and
an alleged former Nazi espionage
agent in Madrid.
The doctor's wife was quoted as
saying that in the autumn of 1945,
in a street in Bolzano, Italy, "I
found myself face to face with.
Martin Bormann." She was quoted
as saying she had no doubt as to
the man's identity - because "I had
already seen him several times in
my husband's office." She said
Bormann stared at her with "an
expression of terror" and ran into
a building where she lost him.

Fortas Suggests WA


Be Example to- U.S. Aid

CHICAGO (JTA) — Supreme
Court Justice Abe Fortas urged
governmental and voluntary agen-
cies engaged in foreign aid to
emulate the United Jewish Appeal
by placing greater emphasis on
aiding people to raise their stand-
ard of living. Justice Fortas spoke
before the UJA Midwest Leader-
ship Institute.

Others who addressed the two-
day conference included Detroit-
ers Max M. Fisher, UJA general
chairman, and Mrs. Harry L.
Jones, national chairman, UJA
Women's Division.
Mayor Teddy Kollek of Jerusa-
lem revealed that both Israel and
the municipalities were desperate-
ly short of the tax revenues needed
'to undertake the monumental job
of bringing Israel's immigrants to
a state of self-support.

ISRAELIS . IN GERMANY: There is not much love lost between
Isr aeli students and diplomats in West Germany and the Jews resid-
ing there . . . There are hundreds of Israeli students studying in
various universities in Germany . . . They maintain contact with Ger-
mans, but avoid maintaining any contact with the Jewish communi-
ties or individuals . . . Jewish community leaders in university cities
resent this attitude . . . They feel that the Israelis snub them for the
sole reason that they chose to Iive in Germany . . . In Bonn, the local
Jewish leaders told me that they seldom see an Israeli in their small
synagogue, and that Israeli diplomats appear their only on High
Holy Days . . . These leaders believe that Jewish life in Bonn, where
the community is very small, would have been much stronger than
it is if staff members of the Israeli embassy did not ignore the
existence of a Jewish community in the city . .. In other cities, with
large Jewish communities, the local Jewish leaders complain that
while Israelis come to them for fund-raising, the Israelis see no need
to build a bridge of friendship between local Jews and Israeli stu-
dents . . The 30,000 Jews now residing in West Germany are con-
tributing to various Israeli causes about $500,000 a year . . . Just
now, as a result of the recent visit of United Jewish Appeal leaders
to Germany, the six larger Jewish communities in West Germany
decided to contribute $500,000 to the building of a high school in
Israel ' as an expression of appreciation on the part of the communi-
ties for the interest taken by UJA leaders in visiting them and in
making them feel that they are part and parcel of world Jewry . . .
This was also an expression of the interest of the Jews in Germany
to help important causes in Israel . . . The Jewish leaders in Ger-
many are _proud of their Jewish communal achievements, and some
of them do not hesitate to say that they are beginning to feel an
by the attitude of the Israelis in Germany toward them . . .
It was- to a certain extent annoying when the mayor of Bonn gave a
reception to the UJA delegation as an expression of respect to his
Jewish community, and none of the Israeli embassy saw fit to appear

at this reception.

Germany draw between themselves and the local Jews is, strangely X
enough, not drawn at all by the Germans . . . The average German,
including many German officials, considers all the Jews as Israelis
and doesn't know the difference . . . Germans cannot, for instance,
understand why Jews in the United States are protesting against cer•
Lain developments in Germany . . . To them, the Jews of America,
England, France and other countries are Israelis, and they cannot
understand why these Jews should protest against them at a time
when they go out of their way to be friendly to Israel . . . Actually, Al
Centrally Located
Israel appreciates Germany's friendship and the Israel ambassador A
in Bonn, Dr. Asher -Ben Nathan, tells it clearly to the Germans when
he meets with them . . . However, he has a very hard time to explain
to them that Israel has no influence on Jews in other countries when at Bus.: TE 4-4440

it comes to matters in which world Jewry is interested . . . An average O
foreign Jewish visitor in Germany, when he comes in contact with
Germans — be it mayors or ordinary citizens — hears from them
all the time about their interest in Israel . . . Israel to them is the
symbol of world Jewry, and they are very much surprised when they
are told that Jews in the United States and in other countries have
their own attitudes toward world issues, including issues affecting
Germany . . . Eventually, Germans will probably understand that.
Israel, as a country, has its own interests with regard to Germany
which do not always coincide with the views of Jews in other coun-
tries on events in West Germany . . . Meanwhile, however, Israel
represents to them all the Jews of the world.

THE JEWISH IMAGE: To illustrate to me how little young Ger-
mans know today about Jews, a Jewish professor at Bonn University
told me the following story . . . In addition to lecturing at the Chair
of Jewish Learning at Bonn University — where he has 18 students,
none of them Jewish — this professor also lectures once a week on
Jewish subjects at a public forum held in the hall of the local syna-
gogue . . . The forum is open to Jews and non-Jews, and is attended
by non-Jews seeking to learn more about Jews . . . During one of his

recent talks, he noted in the audience a young German girl staring
at him all the time while he was lecturing . . . She annoyed him by

her fixed look at him, and when the lecture was over, he called her
over and asked her why she was staring at him constantly . . . "Why,"
she re-plied, "I heard so much about Jews but I never saw one in my
entire life, so I came here not to hear your lecture but just to see
what a Jew looks like."
. "And how do I look?", asked the Jewish
professor, puzzled by her explanation .. . "To me," she replied inno-

cently, "you look like- any one of us. From what I heard about the
look of Jews, I thought you will resemble the devil, but I could not
see any such resemblance." . . . The image of the Jew among young
Germans today is patterned after the image in which the Nazi pic-
ture books presented him . . . There • are- literally thousands and
thousands of young Germans today in smaller towns in. Germany who
never saw a Jew, and even -in the large cities there are young Ger-
mans who do not know a Jew when they come in contact with him.
. . . In their imagination — formed under the influence of Nazi litera-
ture — a Jew has horns, a crooked nose and certainly does not look
like an ordinary human being . .. They are quite surprised — like
the girl who came to hear the Jewish lecturer — when they discover
that a Jew looks just like themselves, and it is this discovery that

dispels more than anything else the propaganda about Jews which
the Nazis implanted in the German . people.
