Germans Admitted to Pharmaceutical Federation; Israelis Protest

The Israeli delegation to the fourteenth general assembly of the International pharmaceutical Federation unsuccessfully sought to block admission of Germany into the Federation on the grounds that “representatives of people who used women and children as guinea pigs for the aims of pseudo-science are not fit to be received into an international organization.”

Dr. J. Kohlberg, president of the Israel Pharmaceutical Association, who headed his country’s delegation to the Assembly, said he had invited the federation to hold one of its future conferences in Israel. Dr. Kohlberg left for the United States where he hopes to organize a Jewish pharmaceutical group, affiliated to the world body, with headquarters in Israel.
