Crown Prince Gustaf Adolf of Sweden paid a visit today to the Wailing Wall, the ancient remnant of Solomon’s Temple.

“I would never have left Palestine without having seen this wall,” the Crown Prince stated during his visit.

A Jewish delegation headed by I. Ben-Zvi, president of the Jewish National Council of Palestine, met the Crown Prince at the Wailing Wall and gave him historical information concerning it. He evinced great interest.
