"We need to rein in" OSI,
which I suspect was the
motive of all the speakers.
The U.S. was a decade
ahead of Canada, Australia
and England on prosecuting
war criminals within its
borders. They are not pro-
viding any leadership that we
need to emulate. Australia
has a tradition of being a
haven since colonial times.
The Australians rarely deport
for any crimes. As for Canada,
it is now seeking to try one
suspect as a criminal and to
deport another.
Most of the speakers made
statements that I attribute to
them, but not all of those
statements were made in the
June 25 meeting. At the
forum, the following was
stated by George Nestercuz in
reference to OSI: "They (the
USSR) feel the need therefore
to neutralize us as effective
opponents . . . Given that goal
on the part of the Soviet
Union, here comes OSI."
He followed that by stating
that the "Jewish community"
is a strong lobby in support of
OSI, which is partly
motivated by "a vendetta."
Huntwork stated that OSI
uses "outright Soviet pro-
paganda." Lozynskij called
OSI the world's largest law
firm, "with offices in
Washington and Moscow."
Myron Kuropas told me, "It is
perceived by many in the
Ukrainian community that
OSI is working with the
KGB," adding that he believes
this to be the case. I do not
believe I created one iota of
fiction in my statement.
I am aware of the fact that
Baltic and other ethnic
groups have, in conjunction
with the Ukrainian Congress
Committee of America, con-
demned the "OSI/KGB part-
nership." I only mentioned
Ukrainian groups because it
was a Ukrainian event with
no others represented.
The Organization of Ukrai-
nian Nationalists (OUN)
worked with the intelligence
agencies of Nazi Germany
and Fascist Italy for years
before the June 1941, Ger-
man invasion of the Ukraine.
The OUN created military
units to aid the invasion. On
June 30, 1941, the OUN, with
the apparent support of the
local German command,
declared a Ukrainian state in
alliance with the Third Reich.
Berlin had not approved this
act and put OUN leaders
under a kind of house arrest
in Germany. OUN leaders
were still allowed to travel
and organize, and toward the
end of the war they were
released to form units allied
to Germany. The OUN led the
Anti-Bolshevik Bloc of Na-

tions (ABN), which was com-
posed of groups unques-
tionably allied with Germany.
A 1960 ABN statement
defended that alliance.
lb say that OUN members
were "imprisoned in Hitler's
death camps" is misleading.
The camps were death camps,
but there were compounds in
which prisoners such as the
OUN and the Romanian Iron
Guard were quartered in
relative comfort.
The OUN dominates the
UCCA today. As a result, UC-
CA participates in national
and international coalitions
with other openly fascist and
Nazi elements.
One of the UCCA member
groups is a veteran unit of the
14th Waffen SS division. A
1984 UCCA publication
described the unit as

The OSI would
have a harder time
obtaining
convictions if
criminalization
took efect.

representing "the Western
concepts of freedom . . . No
quarter was given, all those
who acted in any way to sup-
port Imperial Russia were
regarded as enemies and
treated accordingly."

If Huntwork is a human
rights activist, she may know
that the Second Hague Con-
vention, Article 23, states
that "it is especially forbid-
den ... to declare that no
quarter will be given"; it is, in
other words, a war crime.
Sympathy for Arthur
Rudolph has been recently
shared by Patrick Buchanan
and a misinformed Asso-
ciated Press writer. The asser-
tion that I have "no basis" for
Rudolph's admission of guilt,
however, is false. The state-
ment that Rudolph and his
attorney signed declared:
"I am familiar with the
allegations of the Office of
Special Investigations (OSI),
United States Department of
Justice, that while serving at
the Mittelwerk facility, I par-
ticipated. under the direction
of and on behalf of the Nazi
government of Germany, in
the persecution of unarmed
civilians because of their race,
religion, national origin, or
political opinion.
"The aforesaid allegations
are not contested as to legal
actions commenced or con-
templated under United
States jurisdictions or in
United States courts.
"Those allegations being
