On Rise In Austria
(JTA) — The number of anti-Semitic
incidents documented in 2012 by
Austria's Jewish community has doubled
from the previous year, the leader of
Vienna's Jewish community said.
Oskar Deutsch told the Kurier newspa-
per that the Jewish community registered
135 such incidents last year, compared to
71 in 2011.
Still, Jews increasingly are immigrating to
Austria from neighboring Hungary because
of anti-Semitism in that country, he said.
In comments published Monday,
Deutsch named Hungary, Sweden,
Norway, Finland, France and Greece as
the European Union countries where Jews
are most under threat.
Ariel Muzicant, the former president
of the Jewish Community of Vienna,
said that his community last year began
a program which helps Hungarian Jews
emigrate and settle in Austria.
The program, which now services some
20 families still in Hungary, includes subsi-
dized German language courses to prepare
the participants, as well as help in finding
employment in Austria and finding hous-
ing and Jewish schools for the children.
The recent waiving of work permits
between the two E.U. countries, as well as
economic troubles in Hungary, have also
served as a catalyst for Hungarian Jews
to move to Austria, said Zsuzsa Fritz,
the director of Budapest's Balint Jewish
Accused Nazi From Troy
Loses Deportation Appeal
(JTA) — A US appeals court upheld an
immigration appeals board decision to
deport an accused Nazi living in Troy, Mich.
The 6th Circuit Appeals Court in
Cincinnati, Ohio, on Friday upheld the
deportation of John (Ivan) Kalymon, 91,
who allegedly rounded up and shot Jews
as a member of the Ukrainian Auxiliary
Police during World War II.
The U.S. Justice Department's Board
of Immigration Appeals in September
2011 upheld a Detroit immigration
judge's decision that Kalymon should be
removed from the United States due to
his participation in lethal acts of Nazi-
sponsored persecution of Jews.
Kalymon was ordered deported to
Germany, Ukraine, Poland or any other
country that will admit him.
Kalymon served voluntarily as an armed
member of the Nazi-sponsored Ukrainian
Auxiliary Police in German-occupied Lvov,
Ukraine. He is accused of shooting and
killing Jews during his service, which he
hid on his U.S. citizenship application.
In 2004, the Department of Justice filed
a lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Detroit
seeking to revoke his citizenship, which
he acquired in 1955 after emigrating
from Germany six years earlier. A federal
judge granted the request in 2007, find-
ing that Kalymon had participated in the
roundup and shooting of Jews during his
time in the Ukrainian Auxiliary Police
from 1941 to 1944.
The evidence against Kalymon
included a seized Aug. 14, 1942, report,
handwritten by Kalymon, in which he
informed his Auxiliary Police superiors
that he had personally shot to death one
Jew and wounded another "during the
Jewish operation" that day, according to
the Justice Department. Other evidence
included reports from Kalymon's com-
mander that Kalymon had fired his
weapon during forcible roundups of Jews
in which they were killed and wounded.
