U.S. retains
files on Nazis

Berlin — Almost 40 years after
U.S. forces confiscated some 400
tones of Nazi Party documents,
the politically sensitive files and
records have yet to be returned to
West German authorities.
The documents, housed in the
Berlin Document Center, include
the membership cards of almost
all of the 11 million former Nazis
and the files of more than 600,000
SS officers who had a hand in
some of the Holocaust's darkest
hours.
According to a report in the
Chicago Sun-Times earlier this
year, there was a U.S.-West Ger-
man agreement some 20 years ago
providing for the return of the
documents to the West Germans.
As of yet, they are still in U.S.
hands.
A spokesman for the West
German Foreign Office said that
there is "no hesitation" that West
Germany will gain control of the
files "depending on how soon re-
maining problems — technical
and legal — are solved on the
American side."
Although those problems re-
main unclear to U.S. officials,
some suggest that they may in-
volve the U.S. Freedom of Infor-
mation Act and Privacy Act's re-
levance to documents regarding
non-U.S. citizens.
The records show a thorough
chronicle of Hitler's "final solu-
tion" and the genocide under-
taken by his regime. One room at
the center holds letters from SS
headquarters to commandments
of Auschwitz, directing them to
send all gold and other valuables
taken from camp victims to var-
ious bank accounts in Berlin.
The records were key elements
used by the prosecution at the
Nurembrg trials following World
War II.
Today, the documents are used
by the U.S. Department of Jus-
tice's Office pf Special Investiga-
tions to track down suspected war
criminals in the United States,
and by other governments pursu-
ing similar goals. Such efforts in-
clude the Israeli government's
trial of Adolph Eichmann in 1961
and, more recently, the French
government's prosecution of SS
officer Klaus Barbie.

Even presidents
still citizens

The title of President usually
implies the prerogative to exer-
cise considerable power. Israel's
President, however, only has the
prestige which goes with such
power. He is, in fact, virtually the
only citizen in the country who is
not expected, or evern entitled to
express a political opinion.
The Presidency was designed
by Israel's founding fathers as a
titular head of state, at the oppo-
site end of the scale in relation to
the role of the U.S. President. Is-
rael's political framework is based
on the British Parliamentary sys-
tem of government and thus, the
Presidency parallels the role of
the British monarch.
For all the ostensible authority,
the Israeli President is actually
somewhat of a figurehead. The
