The World

September 24, 1986

World Jewish Congress officials said that an exhortation to "kill the Jews" was among a packet of anti-Semitic propaganda initialed by Kurt Waldheim while he served in the German army during World War II. The German pamphlets, discovered in the U.S. National Archives, were turned over to the Justice Department as part of the congress' campaign to have the Austrian president banned from entering the United States. The leaflets were prepared for dropping behind Soviet lines to encourage Red Army soldiers to defect. Waldheim has denied charges that he was aware of Nazi atrocities and attacks against Jews.
