FRANKFURT: Chancellor Helmut Kohl's Christian Democratic Party on Tuesday issued an indignant response to a group of prominent American entertainment industry figures who compared Germany's assaults on Jews under Hitler to its current stance toward Scientologists.

"The historical parallels in your letter are absurd," Johannes Gerster, a member of Mr. Kohl's conservative party, wrote to the 34 Americans who signed an "open letter" to Mr. Kohl last week that charged: "In the 1930s, it was the Jews. Today, it is the Scientologists."
