Eric Leuth, Bonn Government information officer and leader in the German “peace with Israel” movement, has been accused by his former military commander, Olaf Mumm, of having edited a Nazi military paper during the war and with having delivered wartime lectures imbued with the Nazi spirit. A civil hearing of the charges will be started next month. Leuth denied the charges and said he would produce witnesses to prove that the allegations are unfounded.
