Download PDF for this date

While Philip M. Klutznick, American Jewish leader, conferred here this weekend with Chancellor Konrad Adenar, discussing the recent wave of anti-Semitism, steps were taken here by the Social Democratic Party to outlaw the Bavarian section of the German Reichs Party, some of whose members were involved in the Cologne swastika-daubings last Christmas Eve which sparked the resurgence of anti-Semitic outbreaks.

Rabbi Joachim Prine, president of the American Jewish Congress, who had been rabbi of the leading synagogue in Berlin until he escaped from the Nazi regime, preached the Sabbath sermon yesterday in the Cologne synagogue where Christmas Eve swastika daubings set off the recent wave of anti-Semitic manifestations, and called upon West Germany to pick up the lag in its .”moral education. “

Asserting he was certain that Chancellor Adenauar and his Government “want friendship with the Jews, “Dr. Prless said “the success of this desire depends very much an the ability of the churches, schools and universities to educate the people.”
