  • Description

    Already troubled by months of anarchy, Argentina is now faced with another major problem.

    SYNOPSIS: An under-current of pro-Nazi, anti-semitic feeling has been part of life in Argentina ever since the second world war. At that time, the government took a neutral if not a pro-Nazi stance. But within the past few months, there has been such a revival of pro-Nazi material in book stalls in Buenos Aires that the government of president Jorge Videla has been forced to seriously consider legislation to deal with the problem. Evidence of pro-Nazi sentiment can be found almost anywhere in Buenos Aires and it is not uncommon for souvenir shops to put on display swastikas, Luger pistols and other items associated with the Nazis during the war.

    Going hand in hand with the revival of pro-Nazi feeling in Argentina is the move towards anti-semitism. Synagogues are being attacked and people of the Jewish faith say they live in fear, not knowing when their homes would be bombed.

    They have expressed the hope that the government would be able to cope with the situation.
