Castro Likened to Hitler, Stalin

United Press International

The United States today compared Cuba’s Fidel Castro to Adolf Hitler and Josef Stalin and demanded an investigation by a U.N. commission into alleged violations of freedoms by Cuba.

Ambassador Vernon Walters, permanent U.S. representative to the United Nations, told the annual meeting of the U.N. Commission on Human Rights: “I am old enough to remember those who apologized for Hitler and Stalin. I remember the cries of shock and betrayal when the truth of what those dictators had done filtered out to the world. I think that sooner rather than later the same cries will go up when the world finally acknowledges the horrors of life under Castro.”
