ples. When the Soviet
Union's imperialistic and
hegemonistic ambitions
are concerned, it is pre-
pared to ride shamelessly
and rough-shod over any
state which is in its way." -
Last week, former Is-
raeli Foreign Minister
Moshe Dayan said that
the situation in the Mid-
dle East was much more

serious than depicted in
the press because of the
situation in Afghanistan
and Iran.
Dayan said, "It is very
very important for Israel
to defuse its conflict with
the Moslem world and
making progress on the
autonomy question
would be one way of
doing that."
There "are a number of
local problems," includ-
ing autonomy, "whose
quick solution would re-
move us from the circle of
those in conflict with the
Moslem world," he said.

Dayan denounced the
plans to relocate the Elon
Moreh settlers to Djebi I
Kebir. He called the move
"a calamity" costing the
government millions of
Pounds because the new site
has neither strategic nor se-
curity value and is isolated
in the midst of a densely
populated Arab area of the
West Bank.

Rockier described some of
the cases' on file as "junk"
and observed that "the
sooner we get rid of these,
the better." However, Rep.
Elizabeth Holtzman (D-
NY), chairman of the House
Judiciary Committee's sub-
committee on immigration,
refugees and international
law, expressed some reser-
vations over the deadline.
Holtzman, who has been a
leader in efforts to bring al-
leged Nazi war criminals to
justice, said, "It is a very
ambitious goal and I hope it
can be met in a way that
meets professional
standards." However, she
said, "I don't want to see

Expert Tells of French Aid
in the Nazi 'Final Solution'

BONN (JTA) — An ex-
pert on Nazi death machin-
ery told a Cologne court last
week that no "final solu-
tion" for French Jewry
would have been possible
without the collaboration of
French institutions and
public organizations.
Prof. Wolfgang Schemer
of the Free University of
West Berlin, was testifying
at the trial of three accused
Nazi war criminals, Kurt
Lischka, who was head of
the Gestapo in Paris during
World War II; Herbert Mar-
tin Hagen and Ernest Ein-
richsohn. As an example,
ScheMer noted that in one

wave of arrests 2,500
French policemen took part


Scheffler did not say if he
has information on whether
the defendants knew what
would be the final fate of the
Jews they sent to concentra-
tion camps. This may be the
decisive question in the
trial, which started last Oct
But Scheffler did testify
that Lischka rejected a
suggestion by the German
army in 1942 that the
Jewish inmates be released
and that the Red Cross be
given information about
their arrests.
