A German documentary film on Israel will be shown in this country despite the long-standing ban here on German-language films.

The Israeli cabinet agreed to permit the showing of the film, described as one of the best documentaries on Israel ever filmed, on condition that the commentary be given in Hebrew, not German, and that the title be changed from “Furnace” (Feuerofen) to “Melting Pot. “
