quiry was the late Valerian Tri-
fa, the Romanian Orthodox
archbishop who lived in Grass
Lake, Mich.
Archbishop Trifa was accused
of inciting riots in 1941 in
Bucharest, in which hundreds
of Jews died. Some of the dead
were later hung on meat hooks
in a Bucharest slaughterhouse.
The government asserted
that Archbishop Trifa lied to
American officials in Europe
when he applied for a perma-
nent visa in 1950. His applica-
tion papers claimed that he was
persecuted by the Nazis. He was
granted U.S. citizenship in
1957.
Archbishop Trifa denied
charges that he lied to obtain
citizenship. But he relinquished
his citizenship and was deport-
ed to Portugal in 1984. He died
of a heart attack there in Janu-
ary 1987.
Peter Quintus of Shelby
Township asserted that he was
forced to be a guard in the Mai-
jdanek concentration camp
where 125,000 Jews were per-
secuted and killed during World
War II.
David Griem, Mr. Quintus'
attorney, said his client was
stripped of his citizenship in
1987 but allowed to stay in the
country due to failing health.
Mr. Griem has since lost touch
with Mr. Quintus.

Court Overturns
Denier's Sentence

Bonn (JTA) — Germany's high-
est court has overturned a lenient
sentence imposed on an extreme
right-wing leader charged with
denying the Holocaust.
"Closing one's eyes to the his-
toric truth and denying the ex-
termination of millions of Jews
in the gas chambers does not de-
serve a lenient sentence," the
Supreme Court said as it ordered
a new trial for Gunter Deckert,
chairman of the right-wing Na-
tional Democratic Party.
In June, a state court in the
southwestern German city of
Mannheim found Mr. Deckert
guilty on charges of inciting racial
hatred.
Mr. Deckert had served as the
translator at a rally in 1991 for
Fred Leuchter, an American
Holocaust denier. Mr. Deckert
had said that he supported Mr.
Leuchter's theories, including
statements that the Holocaust
never took place.
Publicly expressing Holocaust-
denial views is a crime under
German law.
Though finding him guilty, the
Mannheim court praised the de-
fendant as a "highly intelligent
person" of "strong character" and
imposed a one-year suspended
sentence.
