A variety of new publications on Hitler’s Third Reich and the Nazi persecution of Jews were on exhibit today at the Frankfurt International Book Fair.

The books include Robert Neumann’s “Rise and Fall of the Third Reich,” which contains hitherto unpublished photographs of Nazi ghettoes in eastern Europe; Hermann Glaser’s “National Socialism and Democracy”; and Hans Joachim Winkler’s “Legends About Hitler” The Glaser and Winkler books are both intended for the political education program in West Germany.

The books include also a new and revised edition of H.G. Adler’s sociological study, “There sienstadt”; “The Third Reich and Its Functionaries,” by Josef Wulf, Jewish Telegraphic Agency correspondent in Berlin, and a German edition of William L. Shirer’s American best-seller, “The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich.” Mr. Wulf’s book contains a collection of documents on the destruction of 500,000 Jews in the Warsaw Ghetto.

Israeli publishers are represented at the Book Fair, and the Israeli exhibit is attracting a great deal of attention here. Among the Israeli exhibits are translations into English of some Russian scientific works, published in Israel.
