Chancellor Helmut Kohl of West Germany said Wednesday that he would support a suggestion of the country’s Jewish community to include a declaration on Germany’s Nazi past in a preamble to a treaty on Germany’s reunification.

The chancellor’s spokesman, Hans Klein, said the declaration will underline united Germany’s responsibility for its Nazi past.
