World Jewish Congress Backs Protest on Memorial in British Zone of Germany

A protest made by the Central committee of liberated Jews in the British zone of Germany regarding a memorial honoring victims of the Bergen-Belsen death camp was endorsed today by the World Jewish Congress. The W.J.C. objected to a decision to place the memorial in the care of the local German authorities in Niedersachsen.
