Remains of Sholem Asch to Be Transferred from London to Israel

The remains of Sholem Asch will soon be transferred to Israel and a cultural center containing the Asch archives will be built at Bat Yam, a Tel Aviv suburb, it was announced last night by Dr. S. Levenberg, Jewish Agency representative.

The announcement was made at a ceremony marking the first anniversary of the death of the noted Yiddish author. Members of the Asch family attending the ceremony heard an extensive survey of the writer’s literary activity during a half century of writing. The survey was presented by Dr. Levenburg and Dr. J. Mattlis, British author.
