German Ambassador to Convey Jewish Petition to Bonn

German Ambassador Heinrich Knappstein said today after meeting with a Jewish delegation that he would convey their petition to Bonn for consideration and expressed a personal wish that no Nazi should escape punishment through expiration of the statute. He met at the Embassy with Jewish community leaders as a large number of pickets marched outside.

The Ambassador said he had reports from German consulates throughout the United States where other demonstrations were held today and that all were very peaceful. He said the German Government did a great deal to clean the German house of Nazi crimes and would continue efforts to remove German scientists from Egyptian war industries. He said one half of the latter had already left Egypt.
