August 7, 1970
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Simon Wiesenthal, whose Nazi-hunting Documentation Center in Vienna is under fire from Austrian officials and who has charged that government with being sympathetic to neo-Nazi pressures, now reports that “five of the 11 Austrian Ministers had a Nazi past.” He did not elaborate on his assertion, contained in an Aug. 4 letter to Harry Evans, a New York friend of the center. Mr. Wiesenthal also indicated that Chancellor Bruno Kreisky will fly to New York in late October to address the 25th anniversary session of the United Nations General Assembly. A spokesman for the Austrian Mission said that Chancellor Kreisky was scheduled to be here Oct. 20-22, but that his schedule could change.
