Download PDF for this date

Dr. Leo Baeck, onetime Chief Rabbi of Berlin and a prisoner of the Nazis, this week-end received an award from World Brotherhood, an organization springing from the National Conference of Christians and Jews, in recognition of his courage and his leadership of German Jewry. He came here from London to accept the citation.

Similar awards were presented to Chancellor Konrad Adenauer and West German President Dr. Theodor Heuss. The citations were presented by Dr. Everett Clindy, president of both World Brotherhood and the NCCJ, and Prof. Arthur Compton, Nobel Prize winner.
