Many thanks for publicizing the documentary film "Nuremberg" ("Ending the Silence Over 'Nuremberg,' " June 2), a long-suppressed account of the worst atrocities of the Holocaust of World War II. Historians and journalists lament the widespread ignorance of basic facts that, as your article notes, has many high school seniors and college students unaware of who Hitler and the Nazis were. Perhaps Clifford Rothman also ought to read a bit about the Nuremberg trials. He might learn that Heinrich Himmler and Josef Goebbels, both having committed suicide at the end of the war, weren't among the infamous defendants at Nuremberg, as the article erroneously states.

A stark reminder of the Holocaust--a speech by Nazi SS leader Heinrich Himmler that refers to "the extermination of the Jewish race"--went on display Friday at the National Archives. The documents, including handwritten notes by Himmler, are among the best evidence that exists to rebut claims that the Holocaust is a myth, archivists say. "The notes give them their authenticity," said Robert Wolfe, a supervisory archivist for captured German records. "He was supposed to destroy them.

Israel has obtained original questionnaires filled out by Hitler deputy Rudolf Hess and Nazi SS chief Heinrich Himmler for the 1935 "Who's Who in the Third Reich." The documents, donated to the Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial Center, could help historians determine the authenticity of other Nazi papers because they contain rare signatures of the men, chief archivist Shmuel Krakowski said.

Of all the neurotic conspirators who surrounded Adolf Hitler, none was more utterly weird than Heinrich Himmler, the unsmiling Reichsfuhrer-SS , organizer and commander of the German police, the concentration camps, and the Holocaust. The son of a schoolteacher, who himself looked like a schoolteacher and spoke like a schoolteacher, he was, second only to Hitler, the most powerful man in the Third Reich and probably the most thoroughly evil.

Michael Verhoeven's film "The Nasty Girl" is Germany's entry in the foreign-language category in this year's Academy Awards. It is an occasionally surrealistic and often very funny account of a teen-aged Fraulein's distinctly unfunny and dangerous attempts to investigate the Nazi years in her hometown.

German tourists are importing the wine and can buy it on the Internet. German law forbids the use of Nazi symbols. The wine producer said the bottles were chiefly for the German market.

A faculty committee agreed with a student group that the life-size painting, which has hung in the library for 10 years, should be accompanied by an "appropriate contextual statement and interpretation." The painting became the subject of controversy when a student complained.
OPINION
August 6, 1995
Kenneth Reich is to be commended for his fair and unbiased article concerning the life of Rabbi Baruch Korff (July 28), who passed away July 26. Reich makes mention of the fact that Rabbi Korff rescued Jews from the Nazis during World War II, but I wish he had explained how he did it. Rabbi Korff traveled across the country raising money, which he used to buy Jews from Heinrich Himmler. He was always a man with a mission; he fought both fascism and communism. In the 1970s when the media and the Democrats were tearing at the fabric of our country, the rabbi, with his unequaled oratory, was reminding his countrymen of the great accomplishments of Richard Nixon.
