German Post Office Issues Stamp Honoring Jewish Scientist

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

The West Berlin Post Office has issued a special stamp honoring Jewish Nobel prize winner Fritz Haber in connection with the opening of the congress of the German Chemical Society here. Dr. Haber, who fled from Hitler and died in Basle in 1934, was named a professor at the Karlsrube Institute of Technology when he was 30, later becoming head of the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Physical Chemistry which now bears his name instead of the Kaiser’s.
