The World Jewish Congress Executive, meeting here, has focused attention on ways to counter the wave of anti-Semitic publications appearing in many parts of the world that claim the Holocaust was fictitious and an invention of Jewish propaganda. Delegates attending the meeting stressed that special efforts will have to be made to expose such falsifications of history.

During the two days of deliberations thorough analyses were made of the situation of Soviet Jewry and reports were heard on the condition of Jewish communities in Latin America in light of social and political changes there. The agenda of the WJC General Council meeting to be held in Washington at the end of October was also discussed. Philip Klutznick, chairman of the WJC’s Board of Governors, visited Premier Menachem Begin to invite him to attend the General Council meeting.
