Central Jewish Committee of Germany Seeking Permission to Open Berlin Office

The Jewish Central Committee is negotiating with American military authorities for permission to open an office in Berlin, it was learned here today. The Committee has already established offices in the principal cities of the American zone except Berlin where special permission is required because of the four-power administrative set-up and the extremely crowded conditions.

It was also revealed that four leaders of the Committee will proceed to the United States to accept an invitation from the United Jewish Appeal to address the U.J.A. national conference in Atlantic City. The four are Leon Retter, general secretary of the Committee; Dr. Samuel Gringauz, president of its advisory council; Dr. Boris Pliskin, chief of the Committee health department; and Samuel Shlomovitch, chairman of the Frankfurt regional committee.
