log Chile.
The 50-year-old disbarred
attorney has gained inter-
national attention as head
of the German People's
Movement (Deutsche
Burgerinitiative), a neo-
Nazi group.

Following his escape,
Roeder was first disco-
vered in Latin America
by Brazilian authorities
who raided a meeting of
Nazis at the Tyll Hotel in
Itatiaia. The resulting
publicity also led to the
identificaiton and sub-
sequent arrest of Gustav
Franz Wagner, one-time
head of the-Sobibor con-
centration camp.
In Albany a confrontation

occured Sunday in the
Washington County town of
Dresden, N.Y., near the
home of alleged Nazi war
criminal Vilis Hazners,
when more than 20 de-
monstrating campers and
staff from Camp Givah, Al-
bany's Temple Israel's day
camp, were challenged by a
group of Hazners' defen-
ders.
Hazners, a Latvian im-
migrant, is charged by the
U.S. Immigration and
Naturalization Service with
entering the country illeg-
ally in 1956 by concealing
his role in the extermina-
tion of Jews in Latvia dur-
ing World War II.
A deportation hearing
against Hazner began in
February 1977 and was re-
r ecsed this spring.

The demonstrators
were challenged by sev-
eral Dresden residents
and one man whose car
bore Vermont license
plates who carried
placards reading "Go
Home, Jew Gestapo,"
"Jews Are a Vengeful
People," and "Jews Are
Hypocrites and Thieves
— Remember the Pales-
tinians." Hazners' defen-
ders, led by a man iden-
tifying himself as John
Christian, said that the
charges against Hazners
were false and
Communist-inspired.

Dresden in the home of
several Latvian families
who fled their homeland
during and after World War
Hazners is accused of at-
rocities against the Jews of
Riga, including identifying
Jews for extermination,
herding Jews into the
Grand Synagogue which
was then burned and other
crimes.

Last November, eight
eyewitnesses against
Hazners from Israel,
formerly from Riga, were
brought to Albany by the
Immigration and
Naturalization Services.

Hazners was utilized by
the CIA to broadcast on
Radio Liberty and the Voice
of America, according to
evidence presented at his
hearing. He is one of a group
of alleged Nazi war crimi-
nals that has been employed
by U.S. government intelli-
gence agencies. The issue is
now being investigated by
the House Subcommittee on

Immigration, headed by
Rep. Joshua Eilberg (D-

Folksinger Baez Bolts Israeli Concert

TEL AVIV (JTA) — Joan
Baez, the American folk
singer and proponent of
progressive social views,
has cancelled her plans to
come to Israel to appear at
the pop and folk song festi-
val being held at the end of
the month at Neviot in
Sinai between Eilat and
Sharm el-Sheikh.
She claims that Neviot is
occupied territory and she
did not know this when she
accepted the invitation to
perform.
The song fest is part of Is-
rael's music and drama fes-
tival held annually during
July and August. A number
of leading folk and pop sin-
gers were invited to partici-
pate along with the Paris
Symphony Orchestra, bal-
let groups from Belgium,
Holland and Japan and sol-
oists from a number of
European symphony or-
chestras.

Ms. Baez was given all
the information about
Neviot, according to the
Israeli organizers of the
event, which is spon-
sored by the CBS record-
ing company here. She
demanded, before ac-
cepting the invitation,
that she be given time
prior to her performance
to issue a political state-

Group to Benefit
Jews From Arab
Lands Expands

NEW YORK (JTA) —
The activities in the United
States of the World Organi-
zation of Jews From Arab
Countries (WOJAC) are ex-
panding, according to Leat-
rice David, executive officer
of WOJAC in New York.
Two new affiliates are in
formation in Texas, a chap-
ter on the north shore of
Long Island, N.Y., has just
begun to function and active
chapters are functioning in
Ann Arbor and Detroit,
Mich.
More than 800,000 Jews
were forced to flee the Arab
countries and many others
were killed in anti-Semitic
riots, tortured and impris-
oned. The local branches are
being formed to alert the
public to the rights of Jews
who left or were forced to
flee. A major purpose of the
branches is to locate those
refugees who settled in this
country and to help deter-
Mine their needs.

PLO Spreading
Hate to Tourists?

TEL AVIV (JTA) — Sec-
urity forces are investigat-
ing complaints from
tourists that some of the
guides from East Jerusalem
are propagating Palestine
Liberation Organization
propaganda and turning
tourists against Israel.
The complaints were re-
ceived by the Commerce
Ministry's tourism depart-
ment and turned over to the
security services.
Gollowing the investiga-
tion, a top level decision is
expected regarding East
Jerusalem tourism opera-

inn°

ment which she would
make at the concert and
which would be included
in the record album of the
festival.

Although it was known
that Ms. Baez holds to an
anti-Israeli view, the or-
ganizers agreed to her re-
quest, but she nevertheless
cancelled her plans.
The organizers tried in
vain to persuade Ms. Baez
that music and politics
should be viewed as sepa-

rate entities. Thus, instead
of hearing Ms. Baez, Israelis
will be listening to one of
America's top pop singers,
Roberta Flack.
