Holocaust denial excluded radical
Zionist groups.
Demonstrators protested that Israeli
Cabinet minister Natan Sharansky was
invited to the conference, saying he is
opposed to concessions to the
Palestinians.

Mauthausen Gets
Visitors Center

Vienna/JTA — A visitors center was
dedicated at the former Mauthausen
concentration camp in Austria:
The opening of the center was part
of ceremonies marking the 58th
anniversary of the camp's liberation
from Nazi Germany by U.S. troops.
"It is the task of every generation
today and in the future to recognize"
violence and racism and "fight them at
their very root," said Andreas Khol,
president of the Austrian Parliament.

Anti-Semitism
Rise Alarming

Paris/JTA — Anti-Semitism has
reached its highest level since World
War II, a speaker at an international
conference on the topic said.

B urial Practices

Are Questioned

London/JTA — Britain's chief rabbi is
calling for certain post-mortem proce-
dures to be phased out after it was
revealed that a Jewish man was buried
without his brain, contrary to Jewish
law.
Jonathan Sacks made the cal l after
the publication of the Isaacs Report, a
three-year government study that
reveals that tens of thousands of brains
were removed from British corpses
without the consent of relatives.
The report focused on Cyril Isaacs,
who committed suicide in 1987 and
whose brain was removed for medical
research into mental illness, unbe-
knownst to his family. He had suffered
from depression.
