Federation of United Nations Associations Votes Against Ending Occupation of Austria

Following a strong statement by Dr. Arieh Tartakower, Israeli delegate to the World Federation of United Nations Associations, which is currently meeting here, the Association voted against a motion by the Austrian delegation calling for an end to the Allied occupation of Austria.

In his speech, Dr. Tartakower cited the Austrian participation in the German crimes against the Jews and humanity in general. He demanded that proof be produced of a real change in the atmosphere in Austria before the Association favored ending of the occupation. Dr. Tartakower was elected vice-chairman of the Association’s Social Committee which deals with matters concerning human rights, genocide and protection of emigrants and refugees.
