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."

Regarding your recent article on the anniversary of Kristallnacht, I was living in the small East Prussian town of Osterode at the time and recall that infamous day as if it were yesterday ( "Germany marks Kristallnacht's 75th anniversary asking: What tips a society into madness?" Nov. 8). In this small town the beautiful synagogue was destroyed. My first class in the morning was a geography class, and the first words that my teacher spoke were "at last. " We kids only looked at each other in amazement, even though some of us were leaders in the Hitler Youth.

COLOGNE, Germany - On a mission to reclaim the wavering souls of Christianity's young generation, Pope Benedict XVI made his first foreign pilgrimage yesterday in a test of his ability to woo a crowd and to build bridges to other faiths. Returning to his German homeland for the first time since his election as pope four months ago, Pope Benedict arrived in this graceful Rhineland city to lead World Youth Day. Hundreds of thousands of young Roman Catholics are coming from all over the world for the weeklong carnival.

At North Carroll High School in Hampstead, the show will not go on this year -- and some parents are blaming Walt Disney Co.Just days before the curtain was to go up on the school's production of "Swing Kids," Disney pulled the plug on the play. The company, which owns the rights to the 1993 movie, refused to allow the school to use its trademark, characters or name.Faced with Disney's response, school administrators canceled the production last week. Some parents are miffed and say the play's positive message of tolerance is much needed after the massacre at Columbine High in Colorado.
