Download PDF for this date

The reparations talks between representatives of West Germany and Israel and Jewish groups from other countries will not take place in Brussels, as originally planned, but “somewhere in the Netherlans,” it was learned here today.

Delegates who are to participate in the talks are expected to arrive at The Hague tomorrow or Thursday, it was indicated. The exact location of the negotiations will be kept secret, as will the negotiations themselves. From time to time official communiques will be issued to the press.

(The discussions of members of the praesidium of the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany with members of the Israeli delegation to the German negotiations have concluded and some members of the praesidium are preparing to leave for New York tomorrow, it was learned in London today. Both the members of the praesidium and of the Israeli delegation visited Israeli Foreign Minister Moshe Sharett, who is ill with the flu in London, to consult him on several points.)
