moved to Detroit from his
post at the German Embassy
in Budapest, Hungary, said
German reunification
should be viewed as a
positive step for Israel and
Jews worldwide.
"A whole Germany can
heal and continue to repair
the past," Dr. von Berg said.
"The Federal Republic can
begin exerting its influence
and policies over the GDR
(East Germany — German
Democratic Republic)."
In addition, the defeat of
West German Chancellor
Helmut Kohl's Christian
Democratic Union Party last
weekend may make room for
a more liberal Social Dem-
ocratic Party, Dr. von Berg
said.
However, last weekend,
about 80 neo-Nazis and
skinheads marched through
the streets of Dresden to
honor Hitler's birthday.
Dr. Hansen called them a
"lunatic fringe group," but
this sort of group has also
reportedly terrorized recent
Polish immigrants in Ger-
many.
"We certainly denounce
such activities, but we must
also contain it in its right
proportions," Dr. Hansen
said. "Their numbers aren't
great, and they don't as yet
pose a serious threat.
"Of course, one has the
right to ask about the kind of
government supervision
that allows these kinds of ac-
tivities, but mistakes have
been made, and we are work-
ing to see they won't happen
again in the future."
Dr. Reuven Bar-Levav, an
author and psychiatrist who
attended last week's presen-
tation, said he thinks Ger-
many is making a serious at-
tempt to reconcile its past.
Born in Berlin as Herbert
Tuchman in pre-Hitler Ger-
many, Dr. Bar-Levav chang-
ed his name when he was 16
years old and was working
with the Haganah, one of the
Jewish underground
movements that worked to
free Palestine from British
occupation. His father had
brought his family to what
was then Palestine in 1934.
"Had events not compelled
such a course, I would prob-
ably still have had my old
name and all the mixed
loyalties that typified Ger-
man Jews before Hitler," Dr.
Bar-Levav said. "Mahler,
Goethe, Schiller and
Schopenhauer would have
been my heroes; more so
than Moses, Isaiah and
Jeremiah."
Dr. Bar-Levav, who works
in Southfield, is willing to
