U•S. Charges Yale Lecturer
Was Propagandist for Nazis

WASHINGTON (JTA) —
The Justice Department
has filed a complaint in U.S.
District Court in New Ha-
ven, Conn., in a move to re-
voke the citizenship of a
former Yale University lec-
turer because of his alleged
participation in Nazi war
crimes and because he

withheld his Nazi back-
ground from American
authorities when he entered
the U.S. in 1951 and when
he obtained his citizenship
in 1957.
The Department of Jus-
tice charged that Vladimir
Sokolov, 68, of Milford,
Conn., was a Nazi prop-
agandist who advocated the
annihilation of all Jews and
called for the conquest of the
United States and imposi-
tion of Nazi rule throughout
the world.

According to the de-
partment's complaint,
Sokolov worked for Nazi
propaganda units from
the end of 1942 to August
1944. He was a writer and
editor bf the Russian lan-
guage newspaper, "Re-
ich," in German-
occupied sections of the
Soviet Union in 1942 and
later wrote for the Nazi
Russian paper.

Sokolov was a lecturer in
Slavic language at Yale
University for 17 years be-
fore retiring in 1976.

Rightwing Rise Worries Germany

BONN (JTA) — An
alarming increase in neo-
Nazi violence and the
rightwing views held by a
small but substantial part
of the population pose a
threat to the fabric of
democracy in West Ger-
many, according to mem-
bers of the Social Demo-
cratic Party (SPD) faction in
the parliament of Lower
Saxony.
The group held a public
hearing on the subject. Fac-
tion leader Karl Ravens
said neo-Nazis today main-
tain paramilitary groups,
special camps for children
and youths and an infras-

tructure of nationwide ter-
rorism.
The most serious cause
for concern, according to
Ravens, is the result of re-
cent public opinion polls
which showed that more
than 10 percent of West
Germans have rightwing
attitudes. This is dangerous
he said because Germany's
democratic system lacks a
long and deep-rooted tradi-
tion.

crisis situations could
trigger a move toward
authoritarian, anti-
democratic forms of gov-
ernment.

Prof. Herbert Obenaus,
an historian, said at the
hearings that after the fall

Novick to Succeed Squadron?

In inner circles of major
Jewish movements, in New
York and among those close
to the Jewish scene in
Washington, it is believed
that Ivan Novick, president
of the Zionist Organization
of Argerica, is being slated

of Nazism, anti-Nazis failed
to exert a decisive influence
in public life in post-war
Germany. He contended
that the so-called "denazifi-

Allies and was not con-
ducted out of self conviction.

Likud Victory
in Noshrim Vote

ROME (ZINS) — The
noshrim in Italy (Jew-
ish emigrants from the
Soviet Union who decide not
to settle in Israel) conducted
their own "election" to the
KAsset on the basis of the
lists in Israel.
During the "election"
campaign, which lasted two
weekS, the "voters" became
familiar with the various
platforms presented by all
of the Israeli parties, and
also had access to their
campaign literature.
The results of the "elec-
tions" were that Likud won
52 Knesset seats; Telem
(Dayan's list) had 20 Knes-
set seats; Rabbi Kahane 16;
the Labor Party 16; the Na-
tional Religious Party, five;
Ha-Tehiyah (Prof.
Ne'eman's party), five,
while the Communist list
failed to receive enough
votes for even one Knesset
seat.
