Dr. Leo Goldhammer has resigned from his post as president of the Austrian Zionist Federation, on account of continuing differences with the Weizmann Group in the Federation. His resignation has aggravated the crisis in the Austrian Zionist Federation which he was trying to settle.

Dr. Goldhammer is a member of the Radical Opposition in the Zionist movement and was one of its delegates at the Fifteenth Zionist Congress in Basle.
