German Leaders to Consider Indemnification for Rumanian Jews

Assurances that West Germany would “consider favorably” claims for indemnification to be filed by former victims of Nazism who had suffered persecutions in Rumania were given here today by leaders of the Bundestag (lower House of Parliament) and the State indemnification committee.

The assurances were given to two former Rumanians now living in Israel, Shalom Silberfarb and Idov Cohen. They came here to press with German authorities the indemnification claims of Rumanian victims of Nazism living in Israel.
