Cologne’s chief of education, Johannes Gilbert, was awarded here today the National Service Cross, for “service to the cause of West German-Israel relations.” He has been instrumental in arranging German youth exchanges with Israel.

Shall Levin, head of the education and cultural department of the City of Tel. Aviv, now visiting Germany, was one of a number of Israeli educators attending the award rite.
