German Court Rejects Banning Book of Globke’s Work Under Nazi Regime

A West German court today rejected a request by State Secretary Hans Globke for a temporary restraining order against the distribution of a book detailing Mr. Globke’s activities in the Ministry of Interior of the Nazi regime.

This book, which was exhibited last week at the Frankfurt International Book Fair by the Ruetten and Loening Publishing House, contains excerpts from the files of the Nazi Interior Ministry, describing the State Secretary’s participation in the drafting of commentary on the Nuremberg race laws. Court proceedings regarding the distribution of the book have been scheduled for November 6.

(In London, the British Board of Film Censors today removed a ban on the film “Action J,” depicting the career of Hans Globke. The film will be shown there to adult audiences.)
