Download PDF for this date

The U.N. Economic and Social Council today set up a seven-nation body to determine an international system of disposing of the property of missing persons. The problem involves the properties of millions of Jews who died in Hitler’s death factories as well as that of other victims of the war in all parts of the world. The seven nations who will appoint experts to this body are Brazil, Denmark, France, Lebanon, Poland, United States and Soviet Union.
