West German Trials of Nazis Still Continue After 30 Years

NEW YORK — Ludwig
Hahn, head of the Gestapo
in German-occupied War-
saw, was found guilty in the
murder of at least 230,000
Polish Jews in World War II
and was sentenced July 4 to
life imprisonment in Ham-
burg, West Germany.
The defendant was 67
years old and was already in
jail serving 12 years on an
earlier conviction of war
crimes, according to the
New York Times. The trials
had lasted 16 _years, not
unusual for a case involving
Nazis.

"Death is faster than Ger-
man justice," said Simon
Wiesenthal, head of the
Jewish Documentation Cen-
ter in Vienna. "And soon
there will be no more wit-
nesses against these peo-
ple.

This summer, accord-

Prosecutors Ask UN Congress
to Rescind Invitation to PLO

NEW YORK (JTA) — Top
officers of the National Dis-
trict Attorneys Association,
the largest national organi-
zation of prosecuting offi-
cials in the world, called on
the United Nations' con-
gress on crime, which
opened Monday in Geneva
to rescind its invitation to
the Palestine Liberation
Organization to participate
in the meeting.
The officials also urged
the UN congress to develop
a definition of "terrorism"
that would not permit any
political justification for
"the commission of crimes
recognized, under interna-
tional laws, such as murder,
kidnapping, assault, rob-
bery, hijacking, extortion,
or any other criminal activ-
ity."
They warned that the
PLO has boasted that it has
the support of the United
Nations in its terrorist ac-
tivities, and declared that,
unless the forthcoming con-
gress outlaws such actions,
the "blame and responsibil-
ity" for future occurrences
"will fall solely on the
United Nations."

Hahn was feared and
hated in Warsaw as "the
Hangman." But like so
many of the Nazis now
being prosecuted, he was a
bureaucrat.
Unindicted Nazi murder-
ers, for whom the statute of
limitations has already been
twice prolonged, can escape
prosecution after 1979.
Three thousand have not yet
been brought to trial.

Robert F. Leonard, vice
president of the NDAA, and
Preston Trimble, chairman
of the board, made their
statements in a letter to
Gerhard 0. W. Mueller, ex-
ecutive secretary of the
Fifth United Nations Con-
gress on the Prevention of
Crime and Treatment of
Offenders.

The letter was also
signed by more than 45
other district attorneys
from across the country,
all of whom are executive
officers of the 700-member
NDAA.

After the Argentine pol
ice released him, Wiesen
that said, he disappeared
without a trace.
To explain why justice
sometimes takes so long
West German prosecutors
point to the time that has
elapsed since the war, to the
strict rules of evidence in
West German criminal
trials and to the difficulty of
finding solid witnesses.

May the coming year be filled

Bank Strike Ends

TEL AVIV (JTA) — Work
resumed last week at Israel _
Discount Bank branches
ending an eight-day strike
which had shut down the
bank's 150 branches
throughout the country.
The bank's 4,000 em-
ployes accepted manage-
ment's demands that they
agree to accept the govern-
ment's new tax reforms
which eliminate certain tax-
free benefits they formerly
enjoyed.
The strike against the
bank, which accounts for 20
percent of the nation's bank
customers, disrupted bank-
ing operations in Israel.

Fidel Castro Says
Israelis Are 'Wise'

In 1849 we opened with
a statement you could bank on.
It's worth repeating.

"It is intended to encourage the industrious and
prudent, and to induce those who have not hitherto
been such, to lay by something for a period of life when
they will be less able to earn a support."

WASHINGTON (JTA) —
Cuba's Prime Minister Fidel
Castro regards the Israelis
as a "wise people," accord-
ing to Sen. George S. Mc-
Govern (D-S.D.).
The remark is included in
a passage in McGovern's
report to the Senate Foreign
Relations Committee on his
visit to Cuba May 5-8.
McGovern wrote, "I de-
scribed the outlines of a pos-
sible settlement which I had
proposed after a trip to that
area earlier this year — the
full recognition of Israel in
exchange for Israel's return
to its 1967 borders with
practical modifications and
recognition of Palestinian
self-determination.
"Castro felt that such a
formula would bring peace
and that the Israelis — who
are 'wise people' — might be
ready to accept it."
