The book, "The Waffen
SS: A History in 1,115 Pic-
tures," portrays the Nazi
army unit as elite front-line
troops. The atrocities of the
concentration camps, ac-
cording to the book, were
carried out by other sec-
tions of the SS.
But Alexander Bernfes,
consultant to Poland's Cen-
tral Commission on War
Crimes, said: "What about
the Warsaw Ghetto—was
that a front line?
"The extermination of the
Jews in the Warsaw Ghetto
in 1943 was carried out
largely by the Waffen SS."
"These 'elite front-line
troops' were called in to
murder innocent women
and children and shoot down
unarmed men," Bernfes
said.
"They were the ones who
set fire to the buildings and
flooded sewers to drive the
Jews out of their sanctuary
so they could be shipped off
to the death camps of
Auschwitz and Treblinka.
"In his daily reports on
the destruction of the War-
saw Ghetto, SS Brigadier-
General Jurgen Stroop, who
led the operation, mentions
the composition of the
troops' under his com-
mand," Bernfes added.
"Day after day, his re-
cords show that by far the
largest section of his
forces—about 65 percent—
comprised Waffen SS
troops. These records were
used against Stroop in his
trial at Nuremberg."
Britain had allowed entry
to three former SS colonels
who came to launch pub-
lication of the book, how-
ever, the British govern-
ment later expelled them.
In the meantime, letters
editors of two London pa-
pers, The Guardian and The
Observer, have sent letters
of apology to a Jewish army
officer, Major David Spec-
tor, for running advertise-
ments for the SS book.
Both editors said that the
ads had slipped by normal
editorial controls and they
expressed regret of the pub-
lication of the advertise-
ments.

Dutch Neo-Fascist Party End Urged

AMSTERDAM (JTA )—
The Public Prosecutor has
asked the Amsterdam Dis-
trict Court to order the dis-
solution of the neo-Fascist
Netherlands People's Union
(Nederlandse Volksunie) for
alleged racist activities.
It is the first time the
courts have been called on
to outlaw a political party in
Holland on the basis of the
civil code which forbids or-
ganizations whose goals or
activities are contrary to
public order and ethical be-
havior.
The party, established two
years ago, is not specifically
anti-Semitic. Its leader,
Joop Glimmerveen of The

Hague has directed its ac-
tivities mainly against the
influx of black workers and
their families into Holland
from Surinam, formerly
Dutch Guiana. It also propa-
gandizes against Turks and
other emigre laborers.
Last May, the Minister of
Justice, replying to ques-
tions by two labor members
of Parliament, promised
that the judicial authorities
would act against the Vol-
ksunie. Glimmerveen said
that if the District Court
moves against his party, he
will appeal to the European
Court of Justice in
Luxembourg.
