Convent Issue
Kills Meeting

Rome (JTA) — The Anti-
Defamation League of B'nai
B'rith backed off from a con-
frontation with Pope John
Paul II last week over the
presence of a Carmelite con-
vent on the grounds of the
former Auschwitz death
camp.
In a highly unusual and un-
characteristic move, the ADL
canceled a scheduled au-
dience with the pontiff.
"It
was
mutually
•-
understood that some items
on the ADL agenda had the
potential for exacerbating
tensions, and it was con-
sidered more productive to
I. reschedule the meeting for a
later time," the ADL said in
a statement released here by
Burton Levinson, its national
chairman, and Abraham Fox-
man, its national director.
Rabbi Leon Klenicki, head
of interfaith affairs for the
ADL, said, "It was evident to

Catholic-Jewish dialogue. He
added, "The audience is not
canceled. It was postponed.

knows it."
One purpose of the au-
dience was to introduce
Klenicki and Rabbi David
Rosen to the pope as ADL's
new liaisons to the Vatican.
Rosen is director of inter-
religious affairs in ADL's
Jerusalem office.
Levinson had planned to
read a statement urging the
pope to involve himself per-
sonally in having the convent
removed from the Auschwitz
grounds. Instead, he made
the text of his statement
available to the news media.
It urged the pope to "find an
effective reply to the tragic
misunderstanding" over the

Ex-SS Officer
Gets Sentenced

Bonn (JTA) — A former. SS
officer has been sentenced to
four years in prison for com-
plicity in the murder of at
least 60 Jews in the Ma-
jdanek death camp.
He may also have been in-
volved in the killing of 380
other inmates.
But the Bielefeld court that
passed sentence last week
decided that 77-year-old Karl-
Friedrich Hoecker would be
allowed to stay at home, pen-
ding a possible appeal.
