Rise of Anti-semitism in Germany Keeps It from Being Admitted into U.N. Associations

September 14, 1949
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Efforts to secure the admission of Germany into the World Federation of the United Nations Associations failed here following a stirring address delivered by Daniel Auster, Mayor of Jerusalem, who represents Israel at the convention of the Federation.

The efforts were made by the delegates of Austria and were supported by British and Italian representatives. In opposing Germany’s admission, Mr. Auster pointed out that anti-Semitism is now just as strong in Germany as under the Nazi regime, and that the German people are far from being democratic-minded. His suggestion to reject the motion made by the Austrian delegate for the admission of Germany was adopted following a brief debate.
