HAMBURG (Jun. 28)
Otto Ernst Remer, who was promoted from major to major general for his key role in crushing the 1944 plot against Hitler, and who was the Jew-baiting co-leader of the neo-Nazi Socialist Reich Party until its dissolution last year, is being groomed to train Egyptians In guerrilla warfare against the British, according to Germany’s leading news magazine, “Dr. Spiegel. “
The magazine says that last month Egyptian officials approached the German Embassy in Cairo with a request for German officers who are specialists in guerrilla tactics, but that the Embassy declined. Therefore, the article implies, the Egyptians turned to Remer, who fled to their country a short time ago rather than serve a three-month jail term in Germany.
