Arnold Zweig, 71 year-old noted German-Jewish writer, has received the Lenin Prize for the “promotion of peace among nations,” Tass, the official Soviet news agency, reported here today.

Mr. Zweig fled from Nazi Germany in 1933 and went to Palestine to live. He returned to East Germany a few years after the end of World War II. His most famous book is the anti-war novel “The Case of Sergeant Grischa.”
