Download PDF for this date

A five-point program for consideration by the Big Four when they discuss a peace settlement for Germany was submitted today by Rabbi Maurice L. Perlzweig at the conference of the European Consultative Council of the World Jewish Congress, meeting here for a five-day session.

His program comprised the following demands: first, recognition by Germany of her guilt and responsibility in the annihilation of millions of Jews; second, the abrogation of racial and anti-Semitic laws; third, international supervision of German legislative practices; fourth, the position of the Jews must not be considered a matter of domestic policy; and fifth, the restoration of the policy of indemnification.
