Download PDF for this date

West Germany’s Ministry of Defense has invited an official of the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith to lecture student officers of the German armed forces on American attitudes toward the Hitler past and the German military tradition, it was announced today.

Kurt J. Bachrach-Baker, the League’s director of foreign research, is the first representative of an American-Jewish organization to address members of the German armed forces. Mr. Bachrech-Baker, who was born in Germany and came to the United States as a refugee soon after the Nazis came to power, will also discuss current problems of German-American understanding.

Among the schools at which he will lecture are the West German Naval Academy in Flensburg-Murwik, the Army Officers School in Hannover, the Military School for Civic Guidance in Coblenz, and the Air Force Pilot Officers School in Fuerstenfeldbruck.
