AFTER HEARING IT ON THE WIRELESS, WEST GERMANS FIRST SAW IT IN PRINT IN THE EVENING PAPERS OF JUNE ONE. CARRYING OUT OF THE DEATH SENTENCE HAD BEEN EXPECTED AND THE AVERAGE MAN IN THE STREET HAD NO QUARREL WITH THE PEOPLE OF ISRAEL OVER THE HANGING OF EICHMANN AND THE SCATTERING OF HIS ASHES IN THE MEDITERRANEAN.

    THE FREE DEMOCRATIC PARTY COMMENTED: "THE RESULT OF HITLER'S ATTEMPT TO BRING ABOUT A FINAL SOLUTION OF THE JEWISH PROBLEM WAS NOT THE DESTRUCTION OF JUDAH, BUT THE END OF THE THIRD REICH ITSELF AND THE BIRTH OF A JEWISH STATE THAT DISPROVED ALL THE RACE THEORIES OF NAZI FANATICS." - LATER, HOWEVER,IT WA REPORTED FROM BONN THAT POLICE PROTECTION HAD BEEN ORDERED FOR A NUMBER OF JEWISH SYNAGOGUES AND CEMETERIES TO FORESTALL ATTEMPTS BY EXTREMISTS TO CARRY ON THREATS OF REVENGE.
