    A torchlight parade, in protest against Nazi outbursts, was organised by various political parties in Saarbrucken, in the industrial Saar, West Germany, Jan 16. Mainly middle-aged people, with a sprinkling of youth, the marchers carried banners with slogans demanding sterner punishment for Nazis, and "One Hitler's already one too many"; "We haven't forgotten Anne Frank".
