Delegation of Israeli Educators Touring Germany; Invited by Bonn

Dr. Shaul Levin, head of a delegation of Israeli educators touring West Germany, told a press conference here last night that the teaching of the history of Israel should be intensified in West German schools, in addition to teaching the history of the Nazi era.

The educators are visiting West German educational institutions at the invitation of the West German central office for political education in Bonn. Dr. Levin also told the conference, held in the Israeli Embassy here, that a mixed German-Israel commission would ensure that textbooks in West Germany would properly reflect Jewish history and that Israeli textbooks will properly cover the history of postwar Germany.
