Erich Priebke Is escorted into Federal Court in Argentina.

Italy Formally Asks
To Get Extradition

Rome (JTA) — Italy's justice min-
ister, Alfredo Biondi, has signed
the formal extradition request for
former Nazi SS captain Erich
Priebke, who was tracked down
in Argentina last month.
A Justice Ministry statement
said Mr. Biondi will send the re-
quest to the Argentine govern-
ment.
The statement said copious
documentation had already been
sent to Argentina demonstrating,
among other things, that Mr.
Priebke's wartime deeds could be
described as crimes against hu-
manity.
Mr. Priebke was involved in
the March 1944 massacre at the
Ardeatine Caves, south of Rome.
Representatives of the Simon

Wiesenthal Center, whose un-
dercover agent located Mr.
Priebke living openly in an Ar-
gentine resort in the Andes
Mountains, met last week with
Mr. Biondi and Prime Minister
Silvio Berlusconi.
The representatives turned
over to the Italians a thick file
of papers documenting Priebke's
participation in war crimes in-
cluding the 1944 execution of 335
Romans — among them 75 Jews
— in reprisal for a partisan at-
tack that killed 33 Nazi storm
troopers.
The Italians began extradition
proceedings last month, and had
45 days in which to supply full
documentation supporting their
case.

WERE FIGHTING FOR YOUR LIFE

New York (JTA) — The shocking
statistic that one in five Ameri-
cans believes the Holocaust may
not have occurred has been
retested, and officially refuted in
a new poll.
A new survey commissioned
by the American Jewish Com-
mittee and conducted by Roper
Starch Worldwide Inc. found that
just over 1 percent of Americans
deny that the Holocaust occurred,
contradicting the group's disput-
ed 1992 poll which had put denial
at more than 20 percent.
The new survey, released July
6, also found a strong correlation
between denial of the Holocaust
and knowledge of basic facts
about it. Many of those who ques-
tioned or denied that the Holo-
caust occurred cited lack of
information as the reason for

their uncertainty, or displayed ig-
norance of basic facts about the
Holocaust.
"Not only are the levels of de-
nial low, but few are dedicated,
committed deniers. Most of the
questioning of the Holocaust re-
flects ignorance rather than anti-
Semitic commitment," said Tom
Smith of the University of Chica-
go's National Opinion Research
Center, who analyzed the Rop-
er poll and other data for AJ-
Committee.
In the new Roper poll, which
was conducted in March, 1.1 per-
cent of respondents said it was
possible that the Holocaust did
not occur, compared with 22 per-
cent in the original survey.
Eight percent of respondents
in the new poll said they were not
sure whether the Holocaust hap-
