No. 10 FRIDAY, MARCH 6, 1964 — 22 ADAR. 5724 » •ivoiBnojfMoav Davotad fg Amcrfon •nd Jawlih Idaah Hersh Adierstein "Deputy" Opens To Orderly Picketing NEW YORK, (JTA) — The first American performance of the controversial play, "The Deputy" took place be¬ fore a packed house In Manhattan with picketing but without the violent disorders which have marked Its showing in every European city where it has been performed. Some 100 pickets were present for the opening night of what is expected to be a long run. The pickets included members of the American Nazi party and ot the Ad Hoc Committee to Protest The Deputy. Most of the latter said they were Catholics. The play's ex¬ plosive, theme is that the late Pope Pius xn failed to speak out against the Nazi slaughter of European Jewry. Critics of the New York Times, Herald-Tribune and other metro¬ politan newspapers agreed that, as a play, "The Deputy" had many faults but they also agreed that the issues it raised about the geno¬ cide of European Jewry needed to be debated and taken to heart. Rolf Hochhuth, the German Pro¬ testant writer of the play, arrived in New York to witness the opening. Dr. Joachim Prinz, president of the American Jewish Congress, lauded the courage of the producers in "the face of reported threats of violence and other reprisals." He said, in his statement, that the right to show the play should, be defended by all persons committed to basic freedoms but beyond that, there was a human obligation on all persons to "confront the awful meaning of the genocide, to recog¬ nize one's own guilt for "the sin of silence" and t*do whatever was required to prevent a recurrence. In challenging viewers to make the confrontation, he added, the play "performs a valuable service," in reminding of the agony (rf the 6,000,000 murdered Jews and of the fact that the world was silent. One of those who was silent. Dr. Prinz added, was Pope Pius but he noted that the hero of the play was a Catholic. However, Dr. Prinz added, that in focusing all attention on one man, the play neglected the "heavy responsibility of both the German Catholic church and the German Protestant church in co¬ operating with Nazi anti-Semitism which led inexorably to the Nazi policy of. extermination.'' Dr. Prinz also contended that the play neglected the responsibility of the German people in their "avid" embrace of^ the Nazi ideology, and the responsibility of the leaders ot the free world for their silence "to' the frantic pleas" from the War¬ saw Ghetto, Auschwitz, Birkenau, Dachau. In sum, he said, the play "dis- (contlnuad on paga 4) Hersh Adierstein Is ADL Staff Member The appointment of Hersh L.
