chairman of the Central Council
of Jews in Germany, has sharply
criticized "the light hand" with
which German authorities han-
dled a case of a group of skin-
heads who desecrated the
memorial site at the former con-
centration camp of Buchenwald.
The group of 22 skinheads ar-
rived at Buchenwald by bus from
the nearby towns of Erfurt and
Gera in the central German state
of Thuringia. They soon started
running wild through the camp,
chanting Nazi slogans and throw-
When one worker at the
memorial site tried to stop them,
they threatened to burn her to
death. No one was hurt in the ri-
oting, but several monuments
were lightly damaged.
The woman worker managed
to summon the police, who in-
terrogated the group, but later
released all but one.
Mr. Bubis said in an interview
that the police had released the
suspects because police officials,
from the start, had handled the
case as merely a "disruption of
Mr. Bubis added that if the po-
lice had handled the case as a "se-
vere disruption of public order,"
as it is phrased in the German
law books, or as one involving the
use of Nazi slogans or threats of
violence, all 22 suspects would
have remained in custody.
Mr. Bubis charged that the au-
thorities were wrong to handle
the case as the mere "foolishness
of a few youngsters."
"The way the authorities have
handled this case and others is
an open invitation to repeat the
vandalism," said Mr. Bubis.
He said he had no doubt that
the case involved premeditation
and that it was well-organized.
Some 70,000 people were ei-
ther murdered in Buchenwald
during the Holocaust or trans-
ferred from there to other death
