production of
"Holocaust," told the
JeWish Telegraphic
Agency that the affiliates
objected to a five-second
segment of the disrobing
scene which shows fron-
tal nudity withpubic hair
visible. They felt this
went far beyond the
boundaries of good taste
acceptable to television
networks and their af-
filiates.
Tenenbaum said that, at
a meeting of the network
and affiliate•officials, he
explained that in the con-
text of the Nazi intention to
degrade and debase Jews by
violating their traditional
concept of modesty, the
scene was authentic. How-
ever, he said, given the fact
that many viewers would
not be aware of this, he
thought the NBC decision to
omit the five seconds was
appropriate.
He expressed hope that
the controversy over the
disrobing scene, which has
been reported by several
newspaper columnists,
would not be allowed to de-
tract from the overall im-
pact of "Holocaust."
Regarding the CDL,
Tanenbaum told the JTA
that the group is headed by

Rouge, La., who, the rabbi
said, has a long record of
anti-Semitic and racist ac-
tivity and is an associate of
David Duke of the Ku Klux
Klan.
Shifra Hoffman, a
member of the board of
directors of the Jewish
Identity Center, re-
. sponded to both attacks
on the film in a statement
demanding that "the
forthcoming NBC pro-
duction 'Holocaust' be
carried by all affiliate
stations in its entirety."
In a related development,
a "growing neo-Nazism and
anti-Semitism in the Un-
ited States and other coun-
tries throughout the world
is reflected in the proposed
Skokie march," according to
Philip Klutznick, president
of the World Jewish Con-
gress.
He told the 600 delegates
at the 78th annual conven-
tion of the Rabbinical As-
sembly, the association of
Conservative rabbis, that
the "Skokie saga has be-
come an international sym-
bol of the effort to rebuild
Nazism and all it implies
and it is internationally ob-
served."
He expressed concern
with the growth of anti-
Semitism and the Nazi
spirit in West Germany, Fr-
ance, and in many Latin
American countries, as well
as in the United States.
Last week, the Federal
Court of Appeals upheld
a lower court order ban-
ning the Nazis' Skokie
parade for 45 days. the
Nazis had proposed to
parade on April 20 after
the same judge had re-
voked the village of

Skokie's
ordinances
banning the parade.
An editorial in the April
issue of St. Anthony's Mes-
senger, a national Catholic
magazine, urged Christians
throughout the United
States to wear the yellow
Star of David that European
Jews were forced to wear, on
April 20, Hitler's birthday.
The editorial, written by
Barbara Beckwith, a native
of Skokie, urged Christians
to repudiate the march and
declared: "Imagine the force
of repudiation of Nazi ideas
if millions of Christians
would wear the Jewish star
April 20 in acknowledge-
ment of our Christian debt
to Jews." The magazine,
published in Cincinnati,
has a circulation of 280,000.
Meanwhile, in Chicago,
55-year-old Frank Walus
denied in Federal Court
that he was involved in the
murder of scores of Jewish
residents of Kielce and
Czestowcha, Poland from
1939 to 1943.
Eleven witnesses, in-
cluding several from Is-
rael, have identified
Walus as a member of the
German Gestapo or of the
Schutz Staffel, Hitler's
elite guard and testified
that they saw him murder
Jews.
Walus told the court that

he worked on four farms in
the area during that time
and that the witnesses were
mistaken.

Anti-Boycott Bill
Action Is Urged

NEW YORK (JTA) — In
letters sent to top city offi-
cials and members of the
City Council, the Jewish
Community Relations
Council of New York
(JCRC) is urging immediate
action on an anti-Arab
boycott bill first introduced
more than six months ago.
The intent of the proposed
measure, according to Jack
Elkin, chairman of the
JCRC's committee on Arab
boycott, is to bar the city
agencies from doing busi-
ness with companies that
participate in the Arab
boycott and would supple-
ment recently enacted fed-
eral legislation.
