Download PDF for this date

The Israeli, Jewish Conference and German delegations at the reparations negotiations here were waiting today for the return of Prof. Franz Boehm, chairman of the German group, from Bonn, Meanwhile, no formal meetings of any kind have been held during the past few days.

From Bonn it was reported that a German Parliamentary commission appointed to investigate charges that the Nazi Foreign Service was top-heavy with former Nazi Party members has criticized Dr. Heinz von Truetnschler, a member of the German team here. Recommending that Dr. von Truetzschler, if kept in the Foreign Office, should not be sent abroad on official missions, the commission said that he had “forgotten” large portions of his past, including his connections with a group set up by former Nazi Foreign Minister Joachim von Ribbentrop to work out the details of Hitler’s “New Order” in Europe.
