Bucharest (Dec. 1)
Chief Rabbi Moses Rosen told an ecumenical conference on peace and disarmament here that the proliferation of nuclear weapons poses a danger of an “atomic Auschwitz of global dimensions” and “a new holocaust ending life in the entire world.” The conference was initiated by Patriarch Justin of the Greek Orthodox Church.
More than 200 bishops and leaders of churches, many of them from Western Europe, participated in the two-day gathering which protested against nuclear danger to Europe and the rest of the world. Other speakers at the conference included the Chief Rabbis of Denmark and Sweden, both of whom where invited to address the gathering by Rosen. The two Chief Rabbis dealt with the Jewish concept of peace and both warned about the danger of nuclear weapons.
