Distribution of Vile Anti-Semitic Pamphlet
Being Investigated by British Authorities

director of public prosecu-
tion is considering proceed-
ings under the Race Rela-
tions Act against the author
and publishers of an anti-
Semitic pamphlet which ap-
peared here recently. The
28-page pamphlet, "Did Six
Million Really Die? — The
Truth At Last," describes the
death of 6,000,000 Jews in
Nazi-occupied Europe as "the
most colossal piece of fic-
tion" and the "most success-
ful of deceptions."
The pamphlet also claims
that the "enormous fraud"
was committed with the de-
liberate intention of black-
mailing the world into ac-
cepting the establishment of
the State of Israel, and in
order to secure financial
gain by way of German re-
The pamphlet, written un-
der a pseudonym, was pub-
lished by a so-called "Histor-
ical Review Press," and al-
though the neo-Fascist "Na-

tional Front" has disclaimed
all responsibility for it, it
bears a close resemblance
to the National Front's
monthly magazine, "Spear-
head." Moreover, R obin
Beauclair, a senior NF mem-
ber, has been discovered to
have been associated with
the publication, a fact which
he is not denying.
Copies of the pamphlet
were sent to the director of
public prosecution by Paul
Rose, MP, and by the Board
of Deputies of British Jews.
The latter asked that legal,
action be taken on the
grounds that the pamphlet
indicated "an intention to
stir up racial hatred" as de-
fined in Section 6 of the Race
Relations Act.
Following the director of
public prosecution's reply
that no such intention could
be proved in this case, the
Board has now asked him to
consider prosecution on the
grounds that a false name
and address were used in the

Arab Propaganda in S. America

The peril of increased Arab
propaganda in South America
aimed not only against Is-
rael, but also against the
local Jewish communities,
was raised at a meeting of
12 officers of the American
Jewish Congress, now visit-
ing South America, and- the

The delegation headed by
Phil Baum, associate execu-
tive director of the AJCon-
gress, and accompanied by
Mark Turko w, secretary
general of the Latin Amer-
ican section of the WJCon-
gress, obtained first-hand in-
formation about all important
community problems.
The first result of the visit
here of an Arab trade dele-
gation was the announcement
that an Arabian-Brazilian
bank will be established with
an initial capital of 100,000,000
cruzeiros (about $16,000,000).
Bankers from Lebanon, Ku-
wait, Saudi Arabia, Iraq and
Libya will share one-third of
the capital.

by his Jerusalem office upon

newspaper articles abroad on
difficulties experienced by
newcomers here.
Sapir stressed specifically
the progress being achieved
in housing and employment—
the two main hurdles. Sev-

being built.
A further 7,500 apartments
would soon be available for
immigrants to rent, and Ham-

were building rental accom-
modation, Sapir said.
