Young Leftist Quits Anti-Semitic Germany

By MOSHE RON

The Jewish News Special
Israel Correspondent

TEL AVIV — There are
unfortunately a few Jews
who join anti-Israeli circles
throughout the world.
There are even Jews who
support the anti-Israeli
propaganda of the Palestine
Liberation Organization.
A young Jewish writer in
Germany, Henryk Broder
(who was born in Poland),
recently quit his leftist

KEREN KAVEMETH LEISRAEL

convinced that their activi-
ties against Zionism and Is-
rael are the result of anti-
Semitism. He accused them
of being anti-Semites like
their parents during the
Nazi period.
Broder declared in
Jerusalem, after leaving
Germany and settling in Is-
rael, that there is no differ-
ent Germany. There are
some decent Germans with
morals, but those also
existed during the Nazi
period.
Broder lived for 24
years in Germany. He
tried to convince the
Germans that they have
failed to become real
democrats. He saw that
his campaign had no re-
sult and could bring him
only damage. Therefore
he decided to leave Ger-
many and settle in
Jerusalem.
Broder was born in Kat-
towitz in 1946. His parents
were sent by the Nazis to
Auschwitz and Buchen-
wald, his sister was hidden
by gentiles. After the liber-
ation, the Broder family de-
cided to move in 1957 to
Germany, because of the
anti-Semitic atmosphere in
Poland. They settled in Col-
ogne.
anti-
said
Broder
Semitism in Poland was
worse than in Germany be-
cause the Germans were
still afraid. A German pupil
told him once in the school
in Cologne, when he heard
that Broder was a Jew,
"They forgot to kill you in
the gas chambers." This was
the only case when he
heard an openly anti-
Semitic remark in school,
though he and his family
never disguised that they
were Jews.
Henryk Broder studied at
the University of Cologne
and worked as a journalist
with several German news-
papers. He published a book
about youth problems. He

learned that most of the
famous German writers
were Jews, who had warned
in time against and pre-
dicted the moral fall and
!decay of Germany.
At the end of the 1960s,
Broder saw the eve of a
new era in Germany
dominated by leftists. He
became active in these
circles, started to demon-
strate with the other
youth who demanded a
better order, more
democracy and more at-
tention to the masses.
Broder thought that the
new leaders of Germany,
President Gustav
Heinemann and Chancel-
lor Willy Brandt, would
achieve these goals, but
he felt deceived by them.
Broder maintains today
that all the negative ap-
pearances and char-
acteristics of the German
population during the Nazi
regime still exist today. He
says that there are again
broad circles in the German
society which believe in ra-
cism and consider the small
Jewish community in Ger-
many as alien elements.
Broder demonstrated in
the small town, of Nordhorn,
where its inhabitants did
not allow a Jewish family to
settle. He carried a placard
with the slogan: "Nordhorn

will be clean of Jews." He
reported that the town of
Hamelin had refused to
erase the name of Adolf Hit-
ler from the list of its honor-
ary citizens. He published
several articles in German
newspapers and had several
interviews on German radio
stations. He also wrote some
books, the last one with the
title, "Germany Is Awaken-
ing."
Broder maintains that
PLO terrorists have trained
members of the German left
in the use of weapons. They
are anti-Semites, anti-
Zionists and -anti-Israel.
Broder became an ardent
Zionist and decided to settle
in Israel.
He asked his German
friends, "There are
hardly any Jews in Ger-
many today. Why are you
so anti-Semitic and anti-
Israel? You are living in a
country, where the
president is a former Nazi
, and in which 'mass-
murderers are moving
freely about. You dare to
call Israel a fascist and
racist state?"
Broder now lives in
Jerusalem, attends an
ulpan and has a Sabra
girlfriend. He plans to con-
tinue sending articles to the
newspapers in West Ger-
many.

Foiled Meeting?-

TEL AVIV (ZINS) —
Shmuel Segev, writing in
Maariv, claims that Gen-
eral Meir Amit, chief of Is-
raeli military intelligence
in the 1960s, was secretly
invited to Egypt shortly be-
fore the Six-Day War.
According to Segev,
Prime Minister Levi Eshkol
wanted to approve the visit
after informing the Vatican
and the U.S., but other
ministers were opposed and
the meeting never took
place.
