     FOLLOWING THE 'RAT LINES'

     While a new translation of Eli Wiesel's Holocaust memoir, "Night," is 
being touted by Oprah Winfrey to millions of Americans, a much less 
publicized piece of Holocaust history is being played out in a federal 
court in San Francisco, where a former U.S. Army intelligence officer has 
testified that the man who became Pope Paul VI "helped hide and launder 
property that had been stolen" from Nazi victims in Yugoslavia during World 
War II.

     POPE PAUL VI, (The Holy Father from 1963 to 1978)The Israeli newspaper 
Ha'aretz has "obtained testimony given last month by William Gowen," who is 
now in his 80s, which reveals that after the war Monsignor Giovanni 
Battista Montini (elected pope in 1963), right, was personally linked not 
just to those criminal acts but also "was involved in the sheltering and 
smuggling of Croatian war criminals, such as the leader of the Ustashe 
movement, Ante Pavelic."
