Protestant Church Leaders in Germany Collect Data on Anti-semitism

A group of Protestant theologians met here this weekend to discuss plans for a collection of documents dealing with Christian anti-Semitism. The project was initiated by the semi-official Evangelical Central Institute for Ideological Questions in Stuttgart. Also participating were Jewish historians Bernard Blumenkranz and Eleonore Sterling.

The Christian-Jewish Study group announced here today it was planning a program on Christian-Jewish relations for the 1963 convention of the German Evangelical Church which drew 10,000 persons last July in West Berlin. The study group, which has been holding meetings on the theological basis of Christian-Jewish relations, attracted considerable support at the biennial church convention.
