German-jewish Compensation Talks to Be Resumed Today at the Hague

April 3, 1952
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

German-Jewish compensation talks are expected to resume here tomorrow immediately after the return from Bonn of the German delegation.

Meanwhile, the local police continued their investigation of the attempt to bomb officials of the German delegation. Both the Dutch and the German Embassy here indicated that they doubt that a Jewish group was involved in sending the letter bomb to members of the German delegation, although the note attached to the bomb carried the signature of “The Organization of Jewish Partisans.” The police were inclined to believe that this was an act of provocation.

(In London, it was announced today that the Agudas Israel World Organization does not consider itself represented at the German-Jewish reparations talks at The Hague although the organization is a member of the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany. The announcement was made by H.A. Goodman, political secretary of the organization. He added that the Agudas Israel informed the Conference of its “firm opposition to any direct negotiations with Germany” while supporting claims of Israel and world Jewry to adequate reparations on the part of Germany.)
