Anti-Semitic films produced during the Nazi regime by Veit Harlan and others, including the Veit Harlan film, “Jew Suess,” are being exported to the Arab countries by the Soviet Export Film Corporation of Moscow, the bulletin of the Federal Government’s press department said today.

The government release charged that these films are sent to the Arab countries to strengthen anti-Israel feeling in the Arab countries and to arouse Arab opinion against the West German-Israel restitution agreement.
