Kissinger Postponing Fuerth Visit

Download PDF for this date

Dr. Henry A. Kissinger has told the Mayor of his home town of Fuerth, West Germany, that because of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearings on his nomination as Secretary of State, he will not be able to visit the Bavarian town on Sept. 11 to accept the award of “Gold Medal of Citizenship.” Dr. Kissinger, who has had to also cancel a lecture in Brussels, said he would like to visit the town at a later date. Dr. Kissinger left Fuerth at the age of 15 when his parents emigrated to the United States to escape the Nazis. An aide to Dr. Kissinger said the city has been trying to give him the medal for almost a year.
