According to the Times,
the review of Trifa's case
was prompted by "a volu-
minous file of documentary
material assembled by the
small Romanian-Jewish Fed-
eration of America with the
help of the Anti- Defamation
League of Bnai Brith, the
Jewish Documentation Cen-
ter of Simon Wiesenthal in
Vienna, the United Israel
Bulletin and, unofficially, the
Romanian government."
Shown texts of speeches he
made glorifying Hitler's
"fight against Judaism" and
accusing the "kikes" of con-
trolling Romania's wealth,
Trifa admitted that he had
delivered the speeches but
said the same speech was
1e by other Romanian stu-
t leaders at the same
time, adding "I didn't write
my own speeches," accord-
ing to the Times report.
But in the Interview with
the Times, he justified his
anti-Semitic speeches in the
context of the period in
which they were made.
He said Romanian students
then "were convinced that
our economy and some of our
key economic channels were
completely in the hands of
some Jews and certainly we
protested against that, yes,"
the Times reported.
In 1951, when he was asked
by a U.S. immigration ex-
aminer if he had ever made
any speeches or given any
lectures that could be con-
strued as anti-Jewish or anti-
Semitic, the immigrant Trifa
