A delegation representing the Jewish Journalists Association of South Africa yesterday called at the local offices of the Twentieth Century-Fox Films to protest against the showing of the company’s film “Desert Fox,” which glorifies the late Nazi Field Marshal Erwin Rommel, which is scheduled to be shown here next week. Similar protests have been made by veterans’ and other organizations.
