Rolf Vogel, the Jewish journalist, was this week awarded the Leo Baeck Prize for 1971 for “services to German-Israel understanding and therefore to humanity.” Vogel, 50, is famous here for his books, articles and films dealing with Israel. During World War II he was interned by the Nazis in the Wolfenbuettel labor camp. Several years ago he was awarded the West German Cross of the Order of Merit. The Leo Baeck Prize, which commemorates the memory of the late Chief Rabbi of Berlin, is awarded annually by the Central Council of Jews in Germany.
