Download PDF for this date

The body of Baron Louis Rothschild, who died in Jamaica, B. W. L. January 15, arrived here late yesterday for burial. The Baron expressed a desire to be buried in Vienna in his will.

When the Baron, who surrendered some $21,000,000 in property to the Nazis as ransom, was given back his property at the end of the war, he handed over a portion of if to the Austrian Government on condition that it be used to pay pensions to his former employees.
