Download PDF for this date

The need for legislation to cover restitution of the confiscated property of Jews and other persecutees in the American, British and French zones of Germany was stressed at a conference of German government representatives from the three zones, held at Tegernsee, 30 miles from here. Such legislation is already in effect in the Soviet zone.

The two-day conference, which concluded today, was devoted to a discussion of the over-all needs of the persecutees for food, clothing and other material assistance. It was called by the Bavarian Government and attended by top officials of the provincial governments in the three western zones.
