Goldmann Confers with German Finance Minister on Indemnification

Dr. Nahum Goldmann conferred here with Finance Minister Rolf Dahlgruen and explained to him the need to end further delay in payments of indemnification to victims of Nazism. The West German Government announced last year it was deferring in 1966 and 1967 payments from a special hardship fund for certain classes of victims of Nazism for budgetary reasons.

Dr. Dahlgruen promised to do all in his power to avoid unnecessary delay, Dr. Goldmann said. However the Bonn minister said he did not know himself the exact budgetary situation and would not be able to give Dr. Goldmann further details until September.

Dr. Goldmann told the press that Dr. Eugen Gerstenmair, president of the Bundestag, the West German Parliamentary lower house, would join him in a discussion, at the plenary of the World Jewish Congress in Brussels, on German-Jewish relations. The plenary will open at the end of July.
