Download PDF for this date

A discussion of Jewish demands for restitution for losses suffered during the Nazi regime in Austria was held today during a meeting between Dr. Julius Raabi Austrian Chancellor, and Dr. Nahum Goldmann.

According to informed sources, the topics discussed included proposals for a property restoration fund, claims for destroyed Jewish communal property, trust corporations for heirless property compensation, compensation for victims of Nazism and a pension law for self-employed persons.

Government sources indicated that the Chancellor promised the utmost restitution possible in the framework of Austrian financial capacity. Dr. Raab advised Dr. Goldmann to confer on details with Finance Minister Reinhard Kamitz.

(In Jerusalem the Jewish Agency announced that Dr. Goldmann would inaugurate in Vienna today the Herzl Herse, which will be the new headquarters of institutions of the Vienna Jewish Community and of Zionist organizations.)
