THE SALINA JOURNAL INTERNATIONAL SUNDAY, JANUARY 28, 1996 A7 BRIEFLY Bosnian foes refuse to release all prisoners SARAJEVO, Bosnia-Herzegovina — Hundreds of prisoners of war were freed across Bosnia on Saturday, but in a fresh obstacle to peace, the former foes reneged on promises to release everyone captured in 42 months of war. The prisoner releases, key to the success of the U.S.-brokered peace accord, are already a week behind schedule. The accord stipulated that 900 prisoners registered with the international Red Cross were to be freed unconditionally by Jan. 19. But only about a third were released on time. The Red Cross said Croats and Muslims released about 250 prisoners, but kept some back. The Bosnian Serbs released none, despite earlier promises to do so made under pressure from the international community. Germany remembers victims of Nazi terror BERLIN — Germany observed its first national day of remembrance for victims of Nazi terror with quiet wreath-laying ceremonies Saturday at a former concentration camp and at a memorial to Nazi opponents. But no ceremonies were organized by the federal government, and most major political speeches were delivered in advance, drawing criticism from some Jewish leaders. "I can only express my pain that that this observance was handled so offensively ... This is not what we had hoped for," said Michel Friedman, a leader of the Central Council of German Jews. The leader of Germany's Jews, Ignatz Bubis, last year called for a -national day to remember the 6 million Jews killed in the Holo- -caust; Jan. 27 was designated in honor of the liberation of the Auschwitz concentration camp in 1945. • But with the date falling on a -Saturday this year, parliament held its observance Jan. 19 and many politicians issued speeches on the eve of the observance.
