Deported Archbishop
Dies In Portugal Exile

New York (JTA) — Ar-
chbishop Valerian Trifa, the
Romanian-born cleric who was
accused of being a Nazi col-
laborator and a rabid anti-
Semite, died Jan. 28 in the
town of Cascais, Portugal, at
the age of 72. He reportedly
suffered a heart attack re-
cently. A funeral service was
scheduled in Southfield today
at St. George's Romanian Or-
thodox Church.
Trifa was deported from the
United States in 1984 after a
prolonged campaign by
Holocaust survivors, Jewish
organizations and the U.S.
Justice Department. He was
ordered to leave the U.S. in,
1982, but he was unable to find
a country that would admit
him until two years later,
when Portugal accepted his re-
quest to settle there.
Trifa was accused of being a
student leader of the Iron
Guard, a Romanian fascist
group similar to the notorious
Nazi storm troopers in Ger-
many. One of the major
charges against Trifa, who was
until his deportation the
spiritual leader of the
35,000-member Romanian Or-
thodox Episcopate of America
headquartered in Grass Lake,
Mich., was that he incited at-
tacks against Jews in a speech
on Jan. 20, 1941 in Bucharest.
His speech touched off four
days of violent attacks in

which 300 people, mostly Jews,
were murdered.
The Justice Department
began its proceedings against
Trifa in 1975 following 25
years of complaints by New
York dentist Dr. Charles Kre-
mer. Trifa was deported on the
ground that he concealed his
past when he entered the
United States in 1950.
At the beginning of de-
naturalization proceedings
against Trifa in Federal Dis-
trict Court in Detroit, Trifa
agreed to deportation, claim-
ing that to continue his legal
defense would place too heavy
a financial burden on his
church. Government officials
believe the move came as an
effort to suppress testimony
that would have been used
against him in the trial.
Observers also questioned
Trifa's quick ascension to
power in the church in the
United States. Ordained soon
after he came to the U.S. in
1950, several persons in the
close-knit, Romanian commu-
nity alleged that Trifa and
other former Iron Guard mem-
bers took over the church in
1952 by physically ousting the
former archbishop from the
Grass Lake headquarters, near
Jackson. There were several
lawsuits in the 1950s and
1960s over control of Detroit
area Romanian churches.

Jews, Catholics Discuss
Convent At Auschwitz

Paris (JTA) — West Euro-
pean Jewish leaders are due
to meet with a high-ranking
Cathodic delegation to try
and find a compromise solu-
tion to the future of the
Carmelite convent erected on
the site of the Auschwitz
death camp, it was reported
here last week.
The meeting, which will be
held in Geneva, is to be at-
tended by four Cardinals:
Cardinal Jean-Marie Lust-
iger, Archbishop of Paris; the
Archbishop of Belgium; and
the Cardinal of Lyon who
nominally heads the French
Catholic Church. It will be
the second such meeting
since last summer.
Jewish communities in
Western Europe, and par-
ticularly in Belgium and
France, are protesting against
the very presence of the con-
vent on the site where more
than three million Jews were
murdered. The Catholic
Church, on the other hand,
claims that the presence of
the convent and the prayers
of the dozen Catholic nuns
who live there should be seen
as an act of penitence for
World War II crimes.

A three-man French Jewish
delegation left Paris for
Poland at the invitation of
Marcharski whose See covers
the Auschwitz camp site.
Marcharski also attended the
first Geneva conference on
this subject and recently
visited Yad Veshem in
Jerusalem.
The delegation consists of
French Chief Rabbi Rene
Samuel Sirat; Prof. Adi Steg,
president of the Alliance
Israelite Universelle; and
B'nai B'rith representative
Sam Hoffenberg.
Stefan Grayek, the presi-
dent of the World Federation
of Jewish Resistance Fighters
and Deportees, condemned
the visit and the forthcoming
Geneva meeting. Grayek, who
returned recently from War-
saw, said, "There should be no
talks with the Catholic
Church to seek a compromise
solution on this question. The
only solution is for the con-
vent to close down and for the
Church to respect Auschwitz
as the site where three-
quarters of the victims were
Jewish and where the Nazis
murdered over three million
Jews."
