Professor Dubnow Celebrates Seventieth Birthday Quietly

The German press yesterday devoted considerable attention to Simeon Dubnow, noted Russian-Jewish historian, whose seventieth birthday is now being celebrated. Dubnow’s achievements in the field of Jewish historical research are being praised everywhere.

At Dubnow’s own wish no delegations called at his home yesterday, which was his birthday, since he preferred to spend the day in his family circle.
