Poland 'Amazed' at Bigotry Charges

(Continued from Page l)
such as theaters and bookshops, in
Poland.
(In New York, the Warsaw
correspondent of the Westing-
house Broadcasting network re-
ported Monday that the Polish
Communist Party had decided to
continue the use of anti-Semitism
as a political weapon. She said
that the Communist Party's first
secretary Wladyslaw Gomulka
"has clearly given in on anti-
Semitism as a concession to Gen.
Mieczyslaw Moczar," the former
interior minister. As a result,
she said, for the remaining Jews
in Poland, "life promises to be
grim in the foreseeable future."
The disclosures on Poland were
made by. Dr. Roth to reporters who
were given copies of another pub-
lication of the institute, "The
Anti-Jewish Campaign in Present
Day Poland." The publication was
prepared by Lucjan Blit, a journal-
ist and research fellow at the Lon-
don School of Economics. It lists
the names of 152 prominent Polish
Jews or persons of Jewish origin
who have been purged since the
summer of 1967. Most of those
listed were university teachers,
editors, factory managers, high-
ranking civil servants and officials
of various institutions.
The press conference also
made public, with the permis-
sion of Bertrand Russell, a let-
ter which Lord Russell wrote to
Gomulka, in which he declared
that, "The wave of anti-Semitism
in Poland requires that Socialists
everywhere speak out." He de-
clared that Gomulka could have
prevented the discriminatory
acts.
Dr. Roth stated that the officially

inspired anti-Semitic campaign in
Poland continues and has taken on
outright racialist features. He said
the trials of students — mostly
Jewish—who are accused of having
fomented the student demonstra-
tions for liberal reforms in Poland
last spring are going on, and a num-
ber have already taken place, the
latest on Dec. 5, following the Com-
munist Party Congress. He said
more trials were scheduled for the
near future and that the liquida-
tion of Jewish institutions or the
curtailment of their activities was
also continuing.
Lord Russell referred to the
trials in his letter to Gomulka. He
wrote: "One might have hoped
that the Fifth
(Corn munist)
Party Congress
would call a halt
to the trials of
students, mostly
Jews. However,
the trials con-
tinue as I write,
with the accused
divided into small
groups and the
foreign press
barred in the
clear hope that
these disgraceful
events will not be
noticed." Lord Lord Russell
Russell's letter went on to say,
"By some twisted logic, all Jews
are now Zionists, Zionists are
Nazis, and therefore Jews are to
be identified with the Nazis." Lord
Russell reminded Gomulka,
"Your own son is half Jewish.
Surely you understand the crimi-
nality and danger of such a prac-
tice . . . Anti-Semitism in Poland
has been exalted as the cover for

Jordan Charges Attack in Beisan Valley Area

TEL AVIV (JTA) — Fighting
broke out anew several times
along the Israel-Jordan demarca-
tion line in the Beisan Valley re-
gion. A Jordanian spokesman
charged in a broadcast heard here
that four Israeli jet fighters at-
tacked in the area of the Sheikh
Hussein Bridge for 25 minutes,
destroying one house but causing
no casualties.
The Palestine Liberation Organ-
isation in Amman claimed that its
guerrillas fought a rocket and
machinegun battle with Israeli
forces along the demarcation line
last week and inflicted four Israeli
casualties while sustaining none of
their own.
Beirut radio quoted newspaper
accounts of a riot in Baghdad
where Iraqi troops and tanks were
called out to suppress a mob that
was setting fire to municipal cars.
The account did not specify the
cause of the riot but speculated
that it was the result of last
week's Israeli air strike against
Iraqi troops stationed in Jordan.
An Arab saboteur was killed
and another was wounded in a
clash with an Israeli patrol near
Kahn Yunis in the Gaza Strip.
A military spokesman said both

PARIS (JTA)—A strong protest
against leniency for Nazi war
criminals and attempts to white-
wash them was lodged by the As-
sociation of Former Jewish De-
portees from France. The group
referred specifically to last week's
acquittal of a Nazi judge, Hans-
Joachim Rehse, who had passed
death sentences on more than 200
political prisoners in Germany dur-
ing World War II. They called on
France and world opinion to halt
"this process of Nazi rehabilita-
tion." The Association announced
that it will organize a mass meet-
ing at Pere LaChaise, the central
cemetery of Paris next Sunday to

"honor the memory of the dead"
and to call for the continued prose-
cution of Nazi war criminals.
(In Kiel, the interior minister of
Schleswig-Holstein said Rehse was
assured of receiving at least 50
per cent of his pension from the
state.)
(In West Berlin, more than 5,000
tookpartinademonstration
against the acquittal of Rehse.
They bore placards contrasting the
acquittal of a Nazi judge who had
imposed 231 death sentences and
the sentence of a year's imprison-
ment on a woman who had slapped
Chancellor Kurt Georg Kiesinger.)

In Washington, a dele-
gation representing the Conference
of Presidents of Major American
Jewish Organizations voiced their
alarm about the condition of Polish
Jewry in a 70-minute conference
with Undersecretary of State Nicho-
las deB. Katzenbach. They also
discussed the status of Jews else-
where in Eastern Europe.
A conference spokesman said
that Katzenbach agreed with
their position about the plight of
Jews and advised them that the
U.S. government was pursuing ef-
forts to alleviate it through chan
nels in Warsaw and Washington.

students and others in Warsaw who
have been accused of responsibility
for last spring's student uprising.
