Pope Benedict XVI's pilgrimage to the Holy Land veered into controversy over his past on Tuesday when the Vatican denied and then acknowledged his membership in the Hitler Youth during World War II. The conflicting accounts came in response to criticism by Israeli leaders that the German pontiff's address at the Holocaust Memorial on Monday had failed to acknowledge his witness of Nazi terror as a conscript in the youth movement and the German army....

Letters, calls and the roar of the crowd:Carla Adams, Baltimore: I am Christian and a Scout assistant leader. I am incensed by the tone of an article in the May-June issue of Scouting magazine [admiring the Hitler Youth.]I am incensed by the lack of acknowledgment that these groups played (a part) in the murder of non-Christian people and Christians alike.People would believe Hitler Youth groups didn't have anything to do with the mass murder of Jewish and non-Jewish men, women and children if they read this article in the national Scouting magazine.

CHICAGO - There has not been a pope from Germany for nearly 1,000 years, and plenty of people in Britain could have waited another 1,000. After Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger was elected, one newspaper blared, "From Hitler Youth to Papa Ratzi," and other tabloids trumpeted his nicknames, which include "God's Rottweiler" and the "panzer cardinal." On the western side of the Atlantic, there were some similar reactions. New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd also noted with alarm that Cardinal Ratzinger was one of the Hitler Youth, without telling readers that his membership was not optional.

"Elisabeth Schwarzkopf," by Alan Jefferson. Northeastern University Press, 304 pages, $29.95.Although she retired from the stage in the late 1960s, Elisabeth Schwarzkopf will always be the beautiful and gracious Countess Almaviva of Mozart and Marschallin of Richard Strauss.The distinction of Alan Jefferson's useful new biography is that it shows us the relentless ambition that drove Schwarzkopf to become one of the most celebrated sopranos of her time. His portrait is not always pretty and it's easy to understand why the singer did not cooperate with the author, who gives the most complete account so far of Schwarzkopf's Nazi associations.

50 Years Ago (week of April 27-May 3, 1941):* This week, the Ellicott City Kiwanis Club was addressed by Army Lt. Harry Hellar from Fort Meade. In his speech, titled "I Interviewed Hitler," Hellar spokeof his experience as a newspaper reporter stationed in Germany in 1931. His job had been to report on the then-new Hitler Youth Movement.During his assignment, he had spoken formally with Adolf Hitler while on a weekend hike with a Nazi group. According to Hellar, Hitler's prediction at the time was that he would never have to face a block of nations "because each one will be selfish and foolish enough to believe that neutrality will preserve them."

GREENBELT -- Mata, viola, controla. The Spanish words for "murder," "rape" and "control" are the battle cry for La Mara Salvatrucha, a violent street gang known as MS-13 and responsible for a recent wave of attacks across Southern Maryland, according to federal prosecutors. The racketeering conspiracy trial against two alleged MS-13 members - Edgar Alberto Ayala, known as "Pony," and Oscar Ramos Velasquez, known as "Casper" - started yesterday with allegations that the men participated in a well-oiled criminal organization responsible for at least six homicides and five attempted killings.

Now, children. Be nice. Don't impale anyone with a broom today.A fat lot of good it would do to scold the kids in "Village of the Damned," John Carpenter's remake of the 1960 sci-fi flick. In their platinum-blond wigs, gray outfits and bad attitudes, they make the Hitler Youth look cuddly.This down-with-people story began with a John Wyndham novel called "The Midwich Cuckoos," so named for the cuckoo, which lays its eggs in other birds' nests. Carpenter, who also remade "The Thing," has updated the 1957 book and 1960 movie to the '90s, but sometimes it's hard to tell.

Children's Theatre of Annapolis presented a lovely and most welcome Christmas present Saturday night with a poised and mature performance of Rogers and Hammerstein's classic musical, The Sound of Music. Of course, the familiar story of Maria, the singing governess who finds love with an Austrian naval officer and his children on the eve of Hitler's annexation of Austria, touches only obliquely (if at all) on themes of the Christmas season. But raindrops on roses, whiskers on kittens, and beautifully sung Broadway shows are indeed a few of my favorite things, so I accept the gift with gratitude.
