Rolf Hochhuth, ‘deputy’ Author, Given Permission to Live in Basle

Rolf Hochhuth, author of the play, “The Deputy,” which charges Pope Pius XII with failure to protest the Nazi annihilation of European Jewry, was this weekend granted an extension of his Swiss residence permit until the end of this year. Police had earlier refused such an extension after organized demonstrations were held here by Catholic groups when the play was first produced in Basle.
