Ex-SS Guard May Appeal
Denaturalization By U.S.

MARILYN RUBY

Special to The Jewish News

A

nton Tittjung of

Greenfield, Wis., has
two months to appeal
the revocation of his U.S.
citizenship for concealing his
service as a guard at a Nazi
concentration camp during
World War II.
Federal Judge John
Reynolds ruled in
Milwaukee recently that
Tittjung, 66, was a member
of the Waffen SS Death's
Head Battalion that guarded
the Gross Raming subcamp
of the Mauthausen concen-
tration camp in Austria.
The U.S. Justice Depart-
ment's Office of Special In-
vestigations accused him of
concealing his SS service in
1952, when he entered the
United States, and again in
1973, when he successfully
applied for U.S. citizenship.
OSI will begin deportation
proceedings against Tittjung
in February if he hasn't filed
an appeal, according to
Ronnie Edelman, the Justice
Department's head pros-
ecutor in the hearing, held
here in federal court Oct. 28
to Nov. 2.
If deported, Mr. Tittjung
could seek to choose the
country of his relocation, ac-
cording to Mr. Edelman.
In his written decision,
Judge Reynolds found that a
Gross Raming guard roster
bearing Tittjung's name
"clearly and convincingly"
establishes that Mr. Tittjung
served as an armed guard
there. Mr. Tittjung therefore
was ineligible for a U.S. visa
under the Displaced Per-
son's Act of 1948. The act ex-
cluded individuals who had
"assisted the enemy in
persecuting civilians."
The judge noted that at
Gross Raming, "at least 185
prisoners were killed during
the period of Tittjung's ser-
vice." He wrote that
"Tittjung voluntarily joined
the Waffen SS" in 1942. In a
similar federal court case in
Milwaukee, final arguments
have been put off until Feb.
12 in denaturalization pro-
ceedings against another
Waffen SS member, Anton
Baumann, after two of four
counts against him were
dismissed.
As with Mr. Tittjung, Mr.
Baumann, a 79-year-old
retiree from West Allis,
Wis., is accused of illegally
concealing his service as a
concentration camp guard in
order to enter the United

States and become a citizen.
Mr. Baumann's attorney,
David Cannon, conceded in a
pre-trial stipulation that his
client served in the Death's
Head Battalion of the
Waffen SS, and was a guard
at the Stuthoff and Buchen-
wald concentration camps.
At the denaturalization
hearing, which opened here
Jan. 2, Mr. Baumann also
admitted that the operation
of Stutthof was "contrary to
civilization and human
decency."
Mr. Baumann applied for
and received a -U.S. visa in
Salzburg, Austria, in June
1950, and became a U.S.
citizen in 1957. ❑

JWV Sends
Bibles To Troops

Washington (JTA) — So
that all Jewish men and
women serving in Saudi
Arabia can have a Jewish
Bible with them, the Jewish
War Veterans of the USA
has ordered a special prin-
ting of a pocket-size military
edition of the Tanach.
One thousand of the Holy
Scriptures for Jewish Per-
sonnel in the Armed Forces
will be shipped to Jewish
chaplains serving in Opera-
tion Desert Shield for
distribution to the ser-
vicemen and women around
Feb. 15.
JWV paid for a special
printing after Lt. Col. Marc
Abramowitz of the U.S.
Army chaplain center in
Fort Monmouth, N.J., in-
formed the veterans group
that the pocket-size Jewish
Bibles were last printed in
the 1960s and that the
military was running out of
them. Non-Jewish troops are
receiving Bibles from
various Christian service
organizations.
"This is one of our reasons
for being, to provide for the
needs of America's ser-
vicemen and women by
offering comradeship and
spiritual support," said
Alfred Schwartz, JWV's na-
tional commander.
JWV also is sending
kosher food and religious ar-
ticles to the Jewish troops,
and snacks, books, games
and other items to all troops.
It plans a blood drive later
this month.
