' Anti-Semitic Groups Exist In Germany NEW YORK (JTA)—There were .still 119 extremist organizations in existence in West Germany by the end of 1964, many of them neo-Nazi and anti-Semitic, carrying on anti-Jewish' campaigns both openly and covertly, the American Jewish Committee reported here. In Austria, the report stated, more than 40 such groups have been formed in the last 10 years. In a survey of neo-Nazi activities' tn Europe coinciding with the 20th anniversary of tho defeat of Hitler Chronicling The News Editorial 2 Teen Scene 4 Shopping Guide 5 Synagogues 5 Society (i, 7 Real Estate 9 Sports 8, 9, 10 ism, the American Jewish Com¬ mittee's foreign affairs department found that, on the whole, "the hun¬ dreds of neo-Nazi and splinter groups organized throughout Europe in the late 1940's and early 1950's have lost members and strength during the past decade," but the racist ideas and political themes advocated by the remaining groups were declared to have gained cur¬ rency and prestige, the report added. THE REMAINING GROUPS, the report declared. Carry on publicly a campaign deriding the fact that the Nazis had murdered 6,000,000 Jews calling such reports "a fable." Undercover, and often in alliance with Arab groups, the report warned, the neo-Nazi organizations are trying to prevent adoption by the forthcoming session of the Ecumenical Council, at the Vatican, of the proposed Catholic Church de¬ claration which would finally re¬ pudiate the ancient charges of Jewish responsibility for the death of Jesus. The report noted several "dangerous factors" of the present situation. THESE ARE: 1.) Support for ¦ anti-Semitic and right-radical groups in Europe and South Ameria by the Nasser Gov¬ ernment and the Arab League, as evidenced by the recent e.vposure of a neo-Nazi underground in Sweden. 2.) The attraction to right-wing ideologies of large numbers of uni¬ versity students. 3.) The increased currency and prestige of certain racist and politi¬ cal themes that were advanced al¬ most wholly by neo-Nazis in the early postwar period. "While crude racist theories are still anathema," the report pointed out, "emphasis on ethnic or national 'personality' is much more widespread today than a few years ago." APART FROM SURVIVAL, these extremist groups have shown skill in various forms of cooperation, the Committee's report added, giving as examples: The creation of es¬ cape routes for war criminals, the continual shipment of extremist literature across frontiers, and the ability to exploit trouble and tension, as with French difficulties in Algeria, social strife in Belgium, and Austrian-Italian conflict over the Alto Adige region. The Committee pointed to the growth of the right-wing press and publications both in France and Germany as "the right extremists' most notable achievement of late." In addition to former Nazis, ex-gen¬ erals, and right radicals, one writer often quoted by the right propagan¬ dists is the American historian, Dr. David Hoggan, whose 898 page book, 'The Enforced War,' casts the British as the villians who caused World Wnr II and Hitler as their victim. "RIGHT-WING HEROES are get¬ ting a greater play than at any time during the past two decades," the report stated, adding: "renewed interest in World Wars I and II is warmly welcomed by all the right- radical groups for it offers them an¬ other opportunity to impress the youth and to argue for a 'rewriting of history.' "With Jews rarely an open target today, extremist groups in Europe seem to be concentrating their at¬ tention on the racial and ethnic minorities who are migrating across national boundaries as part of the widespread movement to meet Europe's labor shortages. WHILE DIFFERENCES of opinion may exist as to what the future of the neo-Nazi and right 'radical will be, the American 'Jewish Committee concluded: "There is general agreement, how¬ ever, that if the relatively stable climate of present-day Europe should be disturbed by social, economic or political crisis, ex¬ tremist groups would gain consiifer- ably in strength and influence."

Damage In Los Angeles Is Not. Anti-Semitic LOS ANGELES -(JTA) - While many Jewish store owners have suffered tremendous losses here during the last six days and nights of rioting in the Negro Watts area, the actions were not anti-Semitic in character, Charles Posner, associ¬ ate director of the Community Re¬ lations Committee of the Jewish Federation—Council of Los Angeles, stated here. Mr. Posner was asked to com¬ ment-on some press reports emanat¬ ing from this city, contending that the rioting was "anti-Jewish." He told the Je'wish Telegraphic Agency that such reports were "not accu¬ rate." "To the best of our knowledge," he declared, "we cannot find any anti-Semitism in tliese riots-not only aati-white fceUngs, although a number, of the stores destroyed in the fires were owned and operated by Jews. "Some of the stores burned out in the fires had employed Negroesg others had not. But the actions were not anti-Jewish. "The losses have been tremend¬ ous, running fanUisticaily into hundreijs of millions df dollars, af¬ fecting not only small stores but also the big chains, some of which have Jews among their owners. But, I repeat, the occurences were anti-white, and not anti-Jewish."
