Prof. Albert Einstein has agreed to become a member of a world committee for the erecting in Paris of a memorial to the 6,000,000 Jews murdered by the Nazis, Isaac Schneerson, president of the Jewish Documentation Center here, announced today. The Center has begun working on plans for the memorial.
