Jewish War Veterans Urge Bonn Government to Fight Neo-nazism

The national executive committee of the Jewish War Veterans of the United States, meeting here, adopted a resolution yesterday calling on the new West German Government and its chancellor, Kurt Georg Kiesinger, to “initiate legislative action to ban neo-Nazi political parties and thereby show militancy and firmness against the rebirth of Nazism in Germany.”

Malcolm A. Tarlov, national commander of the JWV, today cabled the text of the resolution to Chancellor Kiesinger, calling on the latter to take the action and thereby “reassure the world of West Germany’s sincerity in facing the challenge posed by the current resurgence of neo-Nazism.” Mr. Kiesinger himself is an admitted ex-Nazi.
