request to a "more suitable
time."

The state prosecutor for
the district of Lueneburg
said no action
would be taken against Kap-
pler since there was "no
question" of a sentence
passed by a court in Italy
being carried out in Ger-
many. Also, the central,
agency for dealing with
Nazi war crimes said that
since Kappler had been
jailed for 30 years—the
maximum sentence in Ger-
many for any crime—he
could not be re-jailed.
Bonn government sources
say a request for Kappler's
extradition issued Monday
night by Andreotti has not
been received. And they
point out that with extra-
dition of Germans from
their home country ex-
pressly prohibited by the
German Constitution (no
matter what crime they
have committed) Bonn's
hands are tied.

the demonstrators were
sceptical of the official ver-
sion of Kappler's escape.
He reportedly escaped from
the hospital in a suitcase
carried by his wife.
Also present at the demon-
stration was Rabbi Piattelli
of the Synagogue of Rome.
A special section of the Ar-
deatine Caves cemetery is
reserved for the '70 Jews
who died in the reprisal in
Rome. The organizers of
the demonstration said they
are planning other protests
for later in the week.

Rock Opera Will Exalt Hitler

BONN (JTA) — Follow-
ing the recent spate of
books, magazine articles
and films seeking to por-
tray Hitler in a "new
light," three young resi-
dents of Hamburg (report-
edly helped by about 60
other people including
"prominent musicians")
are bringing out a double re-
cord album portraying "der
Fuehrer" as a rock opera
star.
The album will be re-
leased by a Cologne record
company in September and
U.S. and British companies
are reportedly fighting to
gain sole publication rights.
According to one of the
producers, "We produced
the opera mainly for the
British and American mar-
kets, and used mainly
Anglo-Saxon literature
which treats Hitler as an oc-
cult phenomenon." The
album is bound to itensify
the current debate in Ger-
many on whether the cur-
rent Hitler revival is benefi-
cial or dangerous, espe-
cially for a largely-ignorant
younger generation.
A study published on Mon-
day by the influential week-
ly magazine Spiegel ana-
lysed essays on Hitler by
over 3,000 high school stu-
dents and found a "marked
repetition of ignorance, in-
complete or false knowl-
edge, (attempts to) excuse
or approve (of Hitler's ac-
tions) and a minimum of ac-
curate knowledge or eval-
uation."
The liberal-socialist daily
Frankfurter Rundschau
said that in view of the Spie-
gel's findings the producers
of the rock opera laid them-
selves open to charges of ir-
responsibility. "They treat
the Third Reich and its con-
sequences as the product of
an abortive spiritualist
meeting."
The first song, for ex-
ample, describes a meeting
between Hitler, Goebbels
and Satan. The "evil spirit"
takes possession of Hitler's
body and soul. Hitler no
longer has a will of his own
and sings, "I have received
your message, Lord."
Other songs are titled
"Magic Man," "King of the
World," "Tigel Tangel,"
and "Nightmare."

"Bringing up children is
the art of hoping they'll
turn out all right when they
get older."
—Unknown

The Rundschau report
says the producers cannot
be accused of concealing
the crimes of the Hitler era
since concentration camps,
persecution of non-
conformists, the burning of
books and the war itself as
exemplified by Stalingrad
are all mentioned.
"But these are all
shrouded in a mysticism,
which instead of enlight-
ening people, may produce
confusion and ignorance."
Noting that the text of the
songs is similar to that of a
successful recent musical
about Eva Peron and the
English rock opera
"Tommy", it concludes
that the authors of the new
work wanted to "jump on
the bandwagon."

Germany.

John W. Price, a regional
counsel for the INS, filed
an affidavit which said that
Fedorenko was a leader of
the 200 Ukrainian guards at
Treblinka, that he cruely
beat Jews arriving in rail
cars at the camp, that he
"shot people at the edge of
a pit in which a fire was
burning so that their bodies
fell into the fire, because
they were Jewish," that he
beat Jewish arrivals with
whips and shot many arriv-
als because they were Jew-

the woods near the camp to
apprehend Jews who were
hiding out there," brought
them back, "hung them on
gallows by their feet and
shot them because they
were Jewish.
