100 FRIDAY, DECEMBER 6, 1991

New York (JTA) — The
president of Argentina has
promised to provide Jewish
researchers with access to
all files on Nazi leaders who
found refuge in Argentina.
He denied charges that his
country is hiding'secret files
on Martin Bormann, Adolf
Hitler's deputy, whose
postwar fate is a matter
among dispute by Holocaust
scholars.
Meeting with Jewish
organizational leaders, Pres-
ident Carlos Saul Menem
also said he will continue
raising the plight of Syrian
Jewry in discussions with
Syrian President Hafez
Assad. Mr. Menem, who is of
Syrian descent, said he rais-
ed the matter in meetings
with the leaders of Egypt
and Tunisia.
Mr. Menem was praised by
the Jewish leaders for his ac-
tions in the two years since
he took office. During that
time, he has passed anti-
discrimination legislation,
banned neo-Nazi marches,
intervened for Israeli ser-
vicemen missing in action
and become the first Argen-
tinian head of state to visit
Israel.
The president thanked the
Jewish leaders for their ap-
preciation, and said, apropos
of his visit to Israel, that
they "should be proud of
that wonderful country," ac-
cording to one participant.
Mr. Menem denied rumors
that his country had been
involved in Iraq's nuclear
research.
The issue of Argentinian
files on escaped Nazi war
criminals was raised by
Gerald Posner, author of
Hitler's Children,in an op-ed
published in the New York
Times on Nov. 13.
Mr. Posner charged that
he had seen a bulging file on
Bormann in the secret ar-
chives of the Argentine Fed-
eral Police.
Mr. Bormann, who
directed the German opera-
tion that shipped gold,
diamonds and other booty
from Nazi death camps to
safe harbor in sympathetic
Peronist Argentina, was
never certified dead, though
many experts, including
Simon Wiesenthal, believe
he did not escape Europe.
Mr. Menem said he had
asked his Interior Ministry
for its files on Mr. Bormann,
but was told none existed. In
response for a request for
Mr. Mengele's file', he
received the documentation,

which indicated that
Auschwitz's "Angel of
Death" entered Argentina
in 1948 on a Red Cross pass-
port.
During the 45-minute
meeting, Mr. Menem receiv-
ed the Nachum Goldmann
Distinguished Statesman
medal from the World Jew-
ish Congress.
Other organizations at the
session included B'nai B'rith
International, the Anti-
Defamation League, the
American Jewish Com-
mittee and 13 constituents of
the Conference of Presidents
of Major American Jewish
Organizations.

Anti-Fascists
Protest Le Pen

London (JTA) — Anti-
fascist protesters are plann-
ing a relentless campaign
against Jean-Marie Le Pen,
leader of France's extreme
right-wing National Front
while he is in London.
They have sworn to
"chase, hound and disrupt"
his visit. The "Stop Le Pen"
drive, organized by the Lon-
don-based Campaign
Against Fascism in France,
has been endorsed by 60
members of Parliament.
They signed a notice of an
early day motion — a motion
set for no specific day, whose
purpose is public expression
of a view and getting as
many signatures as possible
— demanding that the Holo-
caust denier's trip here be
called off.
Labor Member of Parlia-
ment Alice Mahon, who
prepared the notice, told a
news conference her opposi-
tion to Mr. Le Peri grew out
of her visit to the site of the
Auschwitz death camp in
Poland in 1989.
Mr. Le Pen's dismissal of
the "horrors of the place" as
a "detail of history" was
"proof of how rotten and evil
he is," said Ms. Mahon. She
was referring to Mr. Le
Pen's remark in a Radio
Luxembourg interview
broadcast on Sept. 13, 1987,
that the Holocaust was
merely "a detail of World
War II."
He was subsequently sued
for slander. An appeals court
in Versailles levied a substan-
tial fine on him.
The Campaign Against
Fascism in France has pro-
duced a dossier which it
claims proves that Mr. Le
Pen and his party are fascist
and frequently anti-Semitic.
