Two Germans Get Martin Buber Foundation Awards Tonight for Rescuing Jews from Nazis

Two Germans, one of them a businessman and the other a former diplomat, who were responsible for saving thousands of Jews from death at Nazi hands during World War II, have been named the first recipients of the peace award to be given by the Martin Buber Peace Foundation here tomorrow night.

The men are Oskar Schindler, a Catholic from Frankfurt, and Dr. Gerhard Wolf, who was German Consul in Florence, Italy, during the war. Dr. Wolf, who risked his life to prevent the deportation of Italian Jews, will not be present for the award, because of illness.
