The establishment of a Robert Stolz Wood in Israel in honor of the famous Austrian composer was announced here today in ceremonies in which Mr. Stolz was presented with a citation marking the occasion by Israel Ambassador Michael Simon.

The citation noted that Mr. Stolz, who is not Jewish, helped many of his Jewish friends save their lives during the Nazi regime in Austria. Mr. Stolz, who visited Israel after the war, composed a song entitled “Toward the Sun, Toward Israel.”
