The Folkstimme, weekly organ of the Jewish Social and Cultural Association, in its current Issue expresses support for Dr. Nahum Goldmann, president of the World Jewish Congress, and condemns the World Zionist Organization Executive for withdrawing its invitation to him to address the festive session of the Zionist Congress. The article states: “The ban on Nahum Goldmann has wider implications. It is connected with the debate between those in favor of evacuation and those who believe that millions of Jews will remain in the Soviet Union. Sanctions against Goldmann are an expression of narrow-mindedness at the very least.”
