A West German television survey taken at the opening of Christian-Jewish Brotherhood Week indicated that the 30,000 Jews living in this country feel that the security provided them by West German authorities is more than sufficient and do not feel any prejudice, even from younger Germans.

Prof. Helmut Gollwitzer, a Protestant theologian who was awarded the Buber-Rosenzweig Medal for his fight against anti-Semitism and for the rights of oppressed people, warned of new anti-Zionist currents in the younger generation. He said he hoped this, anti-Zionism was merely “a fashionable and emotional current” stemming from criticism of Israel’s domestic policies.
