Director Sam Norich, who

the Holocaust through life

recorded her reminiscences,
telling how she had been
saved from being shot at a
concentration camp near
Radom, Poland. A teen-
ager, Guta Blas had jumped
at the Nazi officer who was
preparing to shoot women
prisoners.
Guta Blas was taken
away and the women pris-
oners had presumed she had
been shot.
When Mrs. Weitzen left
the recording booth at
the World Gathering and
walked to a nearby table
to fill out a form, standing
nearby was Guta Blas. In
the confusion of her at-
tack on the officer she
was kicked, beaten and a
bullet grazed her
forehead.
She later played dead and
her life was saved by an-
other prisoner who bribed
the commandant with a
diamond ring. Guta now
lives in North Carolina.

Grace Period
for Neo-Nazi
Election Debt

BONN (JTA) — The
neo-Nazi National Demo-
cratic Party (NPD) has been
given a four year period of
grace to pay its 669,000
mark (about $335,000) debt
to a state-run foundation
which allocated election
funds to groups competing
in the Bundestag elections -.
The debt was incurred by
high advance payments re-
flecting previous election
results in which the NPD
had made considerable
gains.
Sources here confirmed
that Federal Finance
Minister, Hans Matthoefer
personally authorized the
unexpected delay. The offi-
cial reason given is that a
thorough investigation has
established that the NPD is
in dire fin ncial straits and
is in no position to repay its •
debt immediately.

She was finally arrested

also active in the anti-Nazi
resistance was captured by
the Germans and hanged.
