The West Berlin government banned yesterday two neo-Nazi organizations which it charges were paving the way for the establishment of a new party under the leadership of Otto Strasser, one-time aide of Hitler who later broke with him.

The organization, known as “Working Group, Never Forgotten Homeland” and “League for the Renewal of Germany,” were dissolved as un-constitutional and any successor groups banned. In its action, the municipal government pointed out that Strasser recently said he stood by “Construction of German Socialism,” an anti-Semitic, anti-Catholic and anti-Protestant tract.
