Czecholosvakia Appoints a Jew As Minister to Israel; His Family Killed in Nazi Camps

Eduard Goldstucker, whose appointment as first Czeschoslovak Minister to Israel was announced here today, will leave Monday for Prague. He said that he hoped to arrive in Tel Aviv by the middle of June.

Goldstucker, a Jew, was a member of the Czechoslovak delegation to the United Nations Assembly session in London in 1946 and a delegate to the Paris Peace Conference the same year. All of his family, with the exception of his father, who died some years ago of natural causes, were killed in Nazi extermination camps.
