Download PDF for this date

Dr. Nahum Goldmann, chairman of the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany, today started his second round of conversations on the drafting of West Germany’s final indemnification and restitution law, aimed at including into the German aid categories many thousands of Jewish victims of Nazism not covered under the current law.

Today, Dr. Goldmann met with Finance Minister Heinz Starke, Minister of Defense Franz Joseph Strauss and Heinrich Krone, Minister Without Portfolio. His scheduled conference on the subject with Chancellor Konrad Adenauer is now slated for tomorrow. He will also confer tomorrow with Erich Mende, leader of the Free Democratic Party, a member of the coalition Government here; and Marin Hirach, newly elected chairman of the indemnification committee in the Bundestag, the lower house of Parliament.
