Download PDF for this date

The Christian Democratic Party of Chancellor Adenauer said today that Germans rightfully have to bear the reaction of the world to the trial of Adolf Eichmann, Nazi war criminal, now in progress in Israel.

Speaking for the party was Dr. Franz Boehm, member of the Bundestag, who represented West Germany in the negotiations that led to the reparations agreement with Israel several years ago. Dr. Boehm said all inhabitants of a country must share blame for misdeeds of their government.
