LONDON (Mar. 18)
An anti-Semitic pamphlet has appeared in Poland. It is written by one Waclaw Szafranski and titled “In the Net of Simon Wiesenthal.” Wiesenthal is the researcher into the Nazi era who resides in Vienna.
It is full of Stuermer-like attacks and vilifications. Wiesenthal, the head of the Nazi Documentation Center, is the main target, but the Jews as such do not escape either. The pamphlet claims that Wiesenthal had collaborated with the Gestapo and was now trying to live it down by hunting surviving Nazis. As to the Jews, the pamphlet states they are now once more engaged in a world conspiracy.
All over the West, the agents of Wiesenthal and the operators of Zion are at work, it is charged. “They are at the behest of (President) Nixon and (U.S. Secretary of State William P.) Rogers, and are also trying to subvert the policies of the Federal German Republic.”
Polish writers here stated that no Waclaw Szafranski existed; this was the pen name of a Polish journalist whose real name is Ignacy Krasicki, the scion of an aristocratic Polish family.
