Dehaan’s Wife, Catholic, Will Demand Transfer of His Body

The gentile wife of Israel DeHaan, slain Secretary of the orthodox Agudath Israel, is expected to arrive here from Holland to claim the property left by him, according to a report in the Hebrew paper, “Kul Jacob.”

The paper also states that DeHaan’s wife, who is a Catholic, will demand the transfer of his body to the Catholic cemetery in Jerusalem, basing her claim on the fact that her husband’s official passport has him registered as of the Catholic faith.
