Six Right-wing and Neo-fascist Parties in Germany Agree on Merger at Conference

Six right-wing and nee-fascist German parties last night decided to merge into a single group at a conference of representatives of the parties held at Neuwied last night.

Among the groups which will participate in the merger are: Socialist Reich Party, headed by former General Otto Ernst Remer and Fritz Dorls and represented at Neuwied by Prof. H. Krieger, a former Gestapo colonel; Fatherland Union, headed by Karl Feitenhanel, who was arrested some ten days ago for neofascist and anti-Semitic activies; and, National Democratic Party, headed by Karl Heinz Priester.

The Association of Independents, headed by Joachim von Ostau who recently achieved nationwide noteriety for advocating the rebirth of the semi-militarist Stahlhelm, refused to join the merger.
