World Jewish Congress Holds Memorial in New York for Late Dr. Barou

Dr. Israel Goldstein, chairman of the Western Hemisphere executive of the World Jewish Congress, today paid tribute to the late Dr. Noah Barou of London for his “monumental service” to the Jewish people. Dr. Barou, chairman of the European executive of the World Jewish Congress and one of the founders of the organization, died on September 5. Eulogizing the Jewish leader at a memorial session, Dr. Goldstein said:

“Dr. Barou’s last monumental service was in some respects his greatest. Dr. Nahum Goldmann, who was credited with having been the leading figure in the negotiations with the Federal German Republic, which resulted in the Luxembourg Agreements, has generously given Dr. Barou the credit for having initiated the idea, having persistently urged its feasibility, in having assiduously promoted initial contacts with the leaders of Western Germany.”
