Nazi Criminal Living in Chile

mon Wiesenthal, the Nazi
hunter, claimed that a major
Nazi war criminal is living
freely and openly in Chile
but cannot be extradited be-
cause of that country's 15-
year statute of limitations on
extraditable offenses.
Wiesenthal, who heads the
Nazi war crimes center in
Vienna, identified the want-
ed Nazi as Walter Rauff, 66,
who, he said. lives in Punta
Arenas, Chile, and operates
a prosperous export-import
He said Rauff was the man
in charge of the mobile gas
chambers—trucks with Red
Cross markings in which de-
portees were locked and
gassed to death as they got
off trains.
According to Wiesenthal,
Rauff was responsible for
killing at least 50,000 people
during World War II. He
said the West German gov-
ernment has requested his
extradition several times but
the Chilean courts ruled that
under the law he could not
be extradited.
Wiesenthal said he had
written to President Salvador
Allende of Chile on the mat-
ter and had received a "warm
and friendly" reply from the
Chilean chief executive, who
said he could not change the
According to Wiesenthal,
Rauff managed to escape
from Europe after World War
II with the assistance of the

Katzir to Cut Out
Sabbath Services at
Presidential Home

President Ephraim Katzir
said that he would continue
to maintain the synagogue
built into the presidenial res-
idence by his predecessor,
Zalman Shazar, but that he
would not continue Shazar's
practice of holding weekly
Sabbath services there.
The president, who took of-
fice May 24, announced his
decision to the dozen or so
neighbors who regularly at-
tended services at the presi-
dential residence. He said
they would be welcome to
continue but indicated it
would be preferable if they
worshipped elsewhere from
now on.
Katzir, who is not Orthodox
in his religious observance,
said he would use Shazar's
synagogue only for special
services. He said he intended
to spend most of his week-
ends for the next six months
at Rehovot where he intends
to keep ur, his scientific work

He said that even when he
is in'4 Jerusalem he would
prefer not to be bound to
one synagogue.
The president apologized
to the weekly worshipers who
were turned away by a police
guard when they came to the
presidential residence last
Friday night for their week-
ly services.
He said the guard had act-
ed without his authority and
has been reprimanded.
The synagogue set up by
Shazar, contains a silver me-
