Anti'Semitic Campaign
In Basel Is Trac^ to
A Jewish Student
GENEVA, (JTA) - A 23-
year-old Jewish medical stu
dent arrested in Basel was
described by police as the
perpetrator of a campaign of
virulent anti-Semitic graf
fiti, harassment and death
threats in that city in
February, (note: original
reports of these incidents ap
peared in the “CJN" last
month)
The disclosure by the
police that Philip Gotchel,
son of a prominent Jewish
family, was solely responsi
ble for the acts, called un
precedented in Switzerland
stunned Jews and non-Jews
alike. The Jewish communi
ty expressed deep sympathy
for the “shame and scandal
to his family.” Gotchel has
been placed under
psychiatric care.
Author of Nazi Propaganda
Book to Be Stripped
Of His Doctorate
BONN, (JTA) - The
University of Goettingen
will strip the author of a Nazi
propaganda book of the doc
toral degree he earned there
in 1951. Professor Norbert
Kamp, president of Goet
tingen University, said
Staeglich was not entitled to
retain his degree because he
misused it to give an aura of
scholarship to blatant Nazi
propaganda. Kamp said he
was shocked by the volume
of mail he has received from
persons all over the world
supporting Staeglich's
allegations.
Staeglich, a judge, is the
author of “The Auschwitz
Myth” which claims that the
gas chambers and the
murder of six million Jews
during World War II was
“Zionist atrocity propagan
da” with no basis in fact.
The book was published in
1979 and promptly became a
best seller in neo-Nazi
circles.
It was subsequently bann
ed by a Stuttgart court which
ordered the destruction of all
copies in circulation and the
printer’s plates. That verdict
was confirmed by a higher
federal court last January
26.
British Knew in 1941
Details of Nazis'
‘Final Solution'
NEW YORK, (JTA) -
British military intelligence
knew as early as July 18,
1941 the daily details of the
Nazis’ “final solution”
against Soviet Jews as well
as the mass killings of Rus
sian soldiers and other non-
Jewish Soviet peoples.
British codebreaking opera
tions — called ULTRA and
Triangle — were immediate
ly distributed to Prime
Minister Winston Churchill
as well as to the French and,
possibly, American in
telligence.
These revelations are con
tained in a detailed article by
Charles Allen, a journalist
who is internationally known
for his work on Nazi war
criminals and their utiliza
tion by American in
telligence agencies.
Allen’s evidence for his ar
ticle was gathered from a
little-read series of massive
ly detailed studies called
“British Intelligence in the
Second World War.”
Allen concluded: “Loom
ing even larger and far more
scandalous than the Allied
failure to bomb the rail lines
into Auschwitz are the ‘terri
ble secrets’ of ULTRA and
Triangle which, if fully
released, will unleash a
veritable hurricane in the
post-Holocaust world.”
Pilgrim *s Fair

Tourism Ministry is to hold

fair came after a similar
meeting for general tourist
agents was held in Eilat,
March 17. Agents were
brought in by plane and
given a rental car and tickets
to the various tourist enter
prises; also they maintained
booths where the agents
could discuss prices and sign
agreements.
For the spring event,
which will be held in May or
June, the ministry intends to
bring hundreds of clergy
from North America,
Western Europe and even a
group from South Korea.
After a festive opening in
Jerusalem and visits to the
holy places in the capital, the
guests will be invited to tour
the Christian sites elsewhere
in the country.
French Curbs May
Hit Israel Tourism
(Jerusalem Post) —
Israel’s tourist industry,
already suffering from a
decline, is in for further set
backs as a result of the re
cent French decision to limit
the amount of money citizens
can take out of the country
for holidays.
Shumuel Pilovsky, head of
the Kopel travel agency, said
that since the drop in Ger
man visitors following the
outbreak of the Lebanon
war, the French have become
the most numerous tourists
to Israel.
The French traditionally
come at two times, at Easter
and in August, staying in
Netanya and Tel Aviv for the
most part. With the restric
tions, Netanya especially
will be hard hit, he
predicted.
Veteran travel organizer,
Salo Scharf of Travex, called
on the Tourism Ministry to
appeal to the French govern
ment to exclude pilgrimages
from the restrictions, just as
travel for study has already
been excluded. This, he said,
would considerably ease the
situation.
Giant U.S. Firm
To Operate in Israel
TEL AVIV (Jerusalem
Post) — The American elec
tronic giant, National Semi
conductors, is to set up a
plant in the development
town of Migdal Ha’emek
which will eventually
employ some 2,000 persons.
Advanced negotiations are
now also taking place with
another U.S. electronics
giant. Burroughs, on setting
up a plant in Israel, Industry
Minister Gideon Patt told
the Israel-U.S. Chamber of
Commerce.
Turning to the general
economic situation, Patt ad
mitted that “1982 was a
rough year for exporters,
and present signs are that
the current year will not be
much better.”
Patt promised to help ex
porters mount a massive
marketing drive abroad.
Tid-Bits
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
The government and the
World Zionist Organization
will establish a joint fund of
$1 million to assist with
loans to Israelis returning to
Israel after an extended stay
abroad.
(Jerusalem Post) — Depu
ty Education and Culture
Minister Miryam Glazer
Ta’asa told the Knesset that
mystical cults in Israel are
intensifying their influence
on both adults and youth.
They are a more serious pro
blem than drugs, she said.
TEL AVIV (Jerusalem
Post) — The world’s first
robot for cutting and
polishing emeralds is being
developed in Israel, and was
one of the subjects discussed
at an international congress
on precious stones to be held
here in April. Israel has
become a major producer of
emeralds.

For the past four years,
the Aliyah Department of
the World Zionist Organiza
tion has been conducting a
program aptly called "Sum
mer Family Living Ex
perience” in Israel. It has
met with such success and
approval by its participants,
that the Aliyah Department
expanded the concept and
will provide a wider variety
of program choices for the
summer of 1983.
“MIVTZA ELEF” or
“OPERATION 1,000” now
offers families from abroad,
an opportunity to choose
from seven distinctly dif
ferent variations of the
original summer in Israel.
Each of the programs has
been carefully and
thoughtfully developed to
provide a program for the en
tire family. All programs in
clude a mini-ulpan that in
cludes courses in basic
Hebrew; lectures on current
events (in English); special
trips to historical sites
(“Routes to Roots”);
meetings with colleagues in
similar businesses and pro
fessions; including schedul
ing activities for children
and teenagers; plus compe
tent and informed counselors
who are well versed in all
facets of Israeli life. Further
information on the program
is available at the nearest
Aliyah Center. Persons liv
ing in the United States may
call a special toll-free
number 1-800-221*1251.
