AMSTERDAM (JTA)—The
president of the West Ger-
man Evangelical Church,
Ernst Wilm, in a letter to
Dutch government officials,
urged the Netherlands to re-
lease the remaining three Na-
zi War criminals held in Bre-
da Prison.
In a letter dated Dec. 19
but only made public last
weekend, the Protestant lea-
der urged the release of the
three in view of their poor
health and confessions of
guilt and repentance.
One of them, Joseph Kota-
ella, 66, is partially paralyzed
and has lost his power of
speech due to a stroke he suf-
fered early last October. The
other two are Franz Fischer,
71, and Ferdinand aus den
Fuenten, 75.
Justice Minister Andries
van Agt, in a press confer-
ence, acknowledged that he
and Premier Joop den Uyl
had received Wilm's letter
last December. He said the
present Dutch cabinet had
not yet discussed the matter.
Van Agt called Wilm, who
spent three years in Dachau,
a "highly respectable man"
but had no good word for the
"bund heimkehrer" in West
Germany which is likewise
campaigning for the release
of the three war criminals.
Van Agt's acknowledge-
ment of the letter came at a
particularly sensitive mo-
ment, the eve of the annual
commemoration of the anti-
Nazi "February strike"
which took place in the Ne-
therlands Feb. 25-26, 1941.
'Dutch Communists are
strongly opposed to the re-
lease of the Nazi war crimi-
nals. Two years ago, the con-
templated release of the
three by the previous Dutch
cabinet caused such a furor
that the idea was abandoned.
Meanwhile, a court in. War-
saw has handed down a
death sentence against Hen-
ryk Matuszkowiak, a former
Polish guard in the Czech
concentration camp at Leit-
meritz, for murder in 10
cases.

Three decades after the
Holocaust, there is a "new
worldwide anti - Se,rnitism"
based on insensitivity and in-
difference to Jewish con-
cerns, according to the find-
ings of a study by Arnold
Forster, Anti - Defamation
League associate director
and general counsel, and
Benjamin R. Epstein, na-
tional director.

The study, based on 31/2
years of ADL research, will
be published this month as
a book, "The New Anti-
Semitism" (McGraw - Hill
Publishing Co.)

It states that the major
difference bet w e e n anti-
Semitism today and the tra-
ditional kind is that the new
anti-Semitism is not neces-
sarily deliberate in character
and is more often "expressed
by respected individuals and
institutions here and abroad
— people who would be
shocked to think themselves,
or have others think them,
anti-Semites."
The study says this new
anti-Semitism is compound.
ed by anti-Jewish hostility
from pro-Arab elements, the
radical left, the radical right,
black extremists, the Soviet
Union, Arab nations and
movements in Europe and
Latin America — all in addi-
tion to the remnants of a
hate - mongering apparatus
which has plagued the
United States since the early
1920s.

The authors further sug-
gest that "Jews have de-
veloped sensitive antennae—
survival mechanism — which
warn them in advance that
something is happening that
is not good for Jews" and
that the Jewish people today
"are affected everywhere
with a profound uneasiness."
The analysis includes the
following as principal causes
of this uneasiness:
Anti-Israel statements, of-
ten from most respectable
sources, which carry an
anti-Jewish impact; public
utterances which pass for
legitimate discussion of the
Mideast situation but are
couched in anti-Jewish lan-
guage or innuendo.
Silent acceptance by public
officials and the clergy of
overt manifestations of anti-
Jewish bigotry.
Anti-Semitism among black
extremists who scapegoat
Jews for urban ills affecting
the black community.
The appointment or fund-
ing of recognized anti-
Semites in public posts in
education and federal pro-
jects.
Radical left assaults on Is-
rael, Jews and Jewish con-
cerns and institutions stem-
ming from a view of Jews
as part of the "Establish-
ment," Israel as part of
"Western imperialism" and

The ADL report describes
the people and the polities
contribuitng to "erosion of
sympathy and friendship for
Jews" and cites American
domestic ,issues and the
Middle East conflict as prime
triggers of anti-Jewish hos-
tility.

It states, however, that the
Jews of Israel are not safe
because the Arabs' eventual
goal is to destroy the Jewish
state. According to the ADL
report, while it is possible
to criticize elements of Is-
raeli policy and action with-
out being anti-Israel or anti-
Jewish, those who call for
or contribute to the destruc-
tion of Jewry's spiritual
homeland are guilty of "the
ultimate anti-Semitism."
