that they were preparing for
a long, drawn-out war," he
said.
Historian Walter Laqueur
of the Center for Strategic
and International Studies in
Washington stressed that
this was the first time a top
Nazi official spoke openly
about killing the Jews.
David Wyman, author of
The Abandonment of the
Jews,observed that both
British and American offi-
cials routinely withheld in-
formation about the murder
of the Jews.
"It would certainly have
been in character for them to
suppress information like
this," he said.
Martin Gilbert, the
leading British authority on
the Holocaust, stressed that
the document's main
significance lay in its refuta-
tion of the canard that the
Holocaust never occurred.
"In terms of denying what
happened, it's a crucial
document, because here you
have one of the people who
was perpetrating it actually,
specifically outlining what
was going on. I think that
gives it amazing impor-
tance," he said.

Ezer Weizman
Appeals For Unity

Tel Aviv (JTA) — Israeli
President Ezer Weizman,
whose position is by defini-
tion apolitical, has made an
appeal to the Israeli people
and their political leaders to
unite in the face of mounting
divisions and tensions
within the country.
But Mr. Weizman, in a
television appearance dur-
ing prime time news,
carefully stopped short of
appealing for a new govern-

Faced total rejection.

his reason for requesting
broadcast time.
Mr. Weizman had, in fact,
appealed to leaders of all po-
litical parties to form a na-
tional unity government
during meetings he held all
day in the Knesset building.
All rejected his plea.
The only one to indicate
any interest was Tsomet
leader Rafael Eitan, who
was the first person Mr.
Weizman had invited in to
talk. Mr. Weizman explain-
ed that Mr. Eitan, a former
Israel Defense Force chief of
staff, was a longtime friend
with whom he shared a
common military past.
Prime Minister Yitzhak
Rabin, who also holds the
post of defense minister, told
reporters he was too busy
trying to go forward with the
peace process and dealing
with terrorism and violent
demonstrations to consider a
national unity government.
Likud leader Benjamin
Netanyahu was equally
negative, but in reverse.
"Why help (Rabin) ex-
tricate himself from his
predicament and the crash
course on which he is em-
barked?" Mr. Netanyahu
asked one interviewer. 0

Goebbels said.
"After the capitulation of
France in 1940, there might
perhaps have been peace had
not England, remembering
November • 1918 (the end of
World War I), believed that
she was still able to wear out
Germany psychologically.
"These hallucinations
weigh heavily upon the
German people and are fully
and consciously utilized by
the enemy," said Mr.
Goebbels.
The Observer reported the
reaction of various experts,
who all agreed on the impor-
tance of the document but
differed on the Foreign Of
motives for repressing
the information.
Sir Frank Roberts, a key
Foreign Office official at the
time whose annotations ap-
pear on the original docu-
ment, said, "The Poles used
to keep us pretty well-
informed. This was clearly
important or it would have
stopped with me.
"But I don't think the ref-

found most interesting. It
