Jewish Scholars Get Brazil Posts

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

The University of Sao Paulo will have three German Jewish professors this summer, the Jewish Telegraphic Agency learned today from Theodoro Ramos, who was sent abroad by the university to close contracts with a number of scholars.

Ramos declared he had placed under contracts Professor Felix Raivitcher of Freiburg, Professor Ernst Breslau of Cologne and Professor Reinbolt of Bonn, all of whom will arrive at Santos on the General Ozri on July 27.

Before the teachers were permitted to leave Germany their appointments had to be ratified by the German education ministry and the Brazilian government was obliged to intervene in their behalf, Ramos revealed.

This book is of value principally for its chapters on the place of Jewish science and scientists in history and for its lists of Jewish scientists of the past century. The lack of a complete index, however, makes it difficult for one to find names quickly. The brief biographical notes, too, are incomplete. Mr. Gershenfeld promises an elaboration of the volume; perhaps it will then really fill the need it attempts to fill at present.
