The Council for Protection of the Rights and Interests of Jews from Germany today sent a letter to Chancellor Konrad Adenauer in Germany stating that Dr. Adenauer’s recent declaration in the Bonn Parliament in which he expressed Germany’s readiness to negotiate restitution of Jewish property “has created a basis for discussion.”

The letter, signed by Dr. Leo Baeck, former Chief Rabbi of Germany and president of the Council, says that the Council is ready to participate in negotiations that might arise from Dr. Adenauer’s statement.
