Israeli Consul
Decries Camp Plaque

Bonn (JTA) — Israel's con-
sulate in Berlin has lashed
out against the state of
Thuringia, in what was
formerly East Germany, for
failing to correct the inscrip-
tion on a plaque at the site of
a former labor camp where
many Jews died.
The consulate called it
"infamous" that nearly two
years after German
reunification, the former
Dora-Nordhausen camp is
marked by a plaque where
Communist propaganda still
prevails over the historic
truth of the Nazi persecution
against Jews.
In fact, in a situation that
is unusual even by the old
Communist standards, while
there is no tablet mention-
ing Jewish persecutees,
there is one for "victims
from Arab states."
The mayor of Nordhausen,
Manfred Schroeter, re-
sponded to the Israeli charge
with an investigation.
He said he learned that the
Arab commemorative tablet
had been erected to kowtow
to the Arabs, considered
friends and allies by the
former East Germany and
joined together in the battle
against "imperialism and
the Jews."
Mr. Schroeter said he had
been told that no tablet had
been dedicated to Jews be-



cause, by East German
standards, the Jews were not*
considered a separate peo-
ple, let alone a nation.
Israeli diplomats in Berlin
called the tablet an affront
and a scandal and urged they
town of Nordhausen and the
government of Thuringia tit.,
take immediate action.
The Israeli criticism in facto
follows an announcement by
the state of Thuringia that it
will erect- a new plaque at
the Buchenwald concentrel
tion camp to commemorate
the 10,000 Jews who perisli-
ed there.

Nordhausen officials said
the memorial at the former
Dora labor camp would be
rebuilt anyway. They4
pointed out that plans are
being drawn up for
memorial that would bell
more consistent with
historical fact rather than
one that reflects Communist
ideology.
Thousands of Jews, along
with French, Belgian and,
other countries' citizens,
comprised the 60,000 slave
laborers in the underground.,
arms factory where, under
wretched conditions, they,
toiled to build V-2 missiles,
to be used against Britain.
A third to one-half the
prisoners there died becau4
of the inhumane working
4
conditions.

Right Wing Plans
Settlement Activity

Jerusalem (JTA) — Jewish
settlers in the West Bank
and Gaza Strip, outraged at
the government's freeze on
new settlements, are seek-
ing the formation of a right-
wing shadow government to
help promote a drive to fund
continued settlement activi-
ty.
The daily Yediot Achronot
reported that proposed
members of the shadow
Cabinet include former Min-
isters Ariel Sharon and
Moshe Katsav, Knesset
members Binyamin
Netanyahu and Ze'ev
(Benny) Begin, and Rabbi
Haim Druckman, a former
Knesset member.
The settlers said they
would establish contacts
with Diaspora Jewry and
with foreign governments as
part of an overseas informa-
tion campaign.
Despite government cur-
tailment of construction in
the territories, work con-

tinues without interruption
at such sites as Eli, Talmon,
Shiloh and Beit El in the
Samaria region of the . West
Bank, they said.
Meanwhile, Rafael Eitart
leader of the right-wing op-
position Tsomet party, 1
charged in an Israeli army
radio interview over the
weekend that Prime Min
ister Yitzhak Rabin had sold
Israel in exchange for U.S.
loan guarantees, foreclosing
any possibility of his party's1
joining the coalition.

Mr. Rabin had met with.,
Mr. Eitan prior to his depar-
ture for the United States,
leading to speculation that
negotiations with Tsomet ono
joining the government
would resume on his return.
But a day after the prime
minister arrived home &mit
Washington, Mr. Eitan
vetoed continued negotig:
tions with Labor. He blasted
Labor's settlement policies.
