Download PDF for this date

Stickers denouncing Dr. Nahum Goldmann as a “lackey of the Germans” were found pasted on houses in Jerusalem today. Dr. Goldmann tendered a luncheon today to Dr. Eugen Gerstenmaier, president of the Bundestag, the lower house of the West German Parliament. Dr. Gerstenmaier had come to Israel to participate in the inauguration yesterday of Israel’s new Parliament building.

Police also found writing on the wall of Dr. Goldmann’s home here, urging him to “return to Germany.” When he arrived from Europe last week, Dr. Goldmann did not complain about such activities, but police have been quietly guarding him since.
