Israel Liquidates Offices Dealing with German Reparations Payments

Download PDF for this date

The offices of the Reparations Corporation in Tel Aviv were closed today, and those in West Germany reduced to a minimum, following placement of orders for products from West Germany under the reparations agreement for the next two years.

Under the Israel-German reparations agreement, Israel can receive products until 1965, payable through West German reparations funds. The offices in West Germany hereafter will be dealing almost entirely with consular activities and presentation of Israeli problems to West German officials.
