Download PDF for this date

The U.N. Economic and Social Council, at its plenary session here, has adopted a resolution urging the German authorities to consider making the fullest possible reparations for injuries suffered under the Nazi regime by persons subjected to so-called scientific experiments in concentration camps.

The resolution invites the International Refugee Organization and any authority which may succeed it in the administration of reparations funds, and voluntary agencies distributing these funds, to alleviate the plight of these victims. It requests the U.N. Secretary General to report to the next session of the Council on the results achieved.
