Moscow (JTA) Security forces
here recently arrested members
of a gang of Russian neo-Nazis
who aimed to bum down Moscow
cinemas screening Schindler's
List, the Oscar-winning film
about a German Nazi industri-
alist who saved 1,100 Jews dur-
ing the Holocaust.
The gang, which called itself
Werewolf, also planned a terror
campaign against "those belong-
ing to other ideologies — democ-
rats, Communists and Jews,"
according to a document seized
by the Russian Federal Coun-
Alexander Zdanovich, a
spokesman for the counterintel-
ligence service, said security
agents confiscated a large num-
ber of arms from the commercial
firm where the gang secretly op-
He added that the gang's
leader, who oversaw security for
the firm, had an office decorat-
ed with portraits of Adolf Hitler,
Nazi emblems and swastikas.
Werewolf was the code name
for a secret Nazi operation to help
top officers go underground at the
end of World War II.

Schindler's List was meant to
open in Russia last month with
a personal visit from producer/di-

However, the premiere was
postponed when Mr. Spielberg
canceled his visit because of oth-

The organizers say they now
hope the film will premiere in
Rome (JTA) — Calling for vigi-
lance against right-wing ex-
tremism and neo-fascism in Italy,
officials of the Italian Jewish com-
munity say international Jewish
organizations should bear in
mind local Jewish opinion before
meeting with right-wing Italian
The call came in a two-page
resolution passed unanimously
by the Congress of the Union of
Jewish Communities in Italy, the
official policy-making body rep-
resenting Italy's 35,000 Jews.
The resolution called for vigi-
lance to insure that "there not be
any compromise or yielding of the
values of democracy, pluralism
and freedom that are at the ba-
sis of our civilization."
"We want (international Jew-
ish organizations) to consult us
and to see things in context," Tul-
lia Zevi, president of the union,
said in an interview.
"They must not allow them
selves to be used as propaganda
platforms," she said. 'They must
realize that whatever contact
they have will be thoroughly uti-
lized (by the far right) as a full en-
dorsement of their ideology and
The resolution was passed in
the wake of recent electoral suc-
cesses by the neo-fascist-led Na-
tional Alliance and the inclusion
of five National Alliance minis-
ters in Prime Minister Silvio
Berlusconi's 25-member cabinet.
Following the general election
at the end of March, Italy was
swept by public debate over the
role of fascism in the country's
history and its legacy for the pre-
Congress delegates expressed
concern that Gianfranco Fini,

It marked the first time that a
leader of the Italian Social Move-

— was invited to the celebration.
mr. Fini is planning a trip to
the United States later this year,
and delegates expressed concern
that he might meet with Jewish
