Wednesday as the 15th Congress
z of the International Union of
Local Authorities convened here.
President Itzhak Ben-Zvi and
4:4 Mrs. Ben-Z-•i led the high ranking
Israelis present at the opening
I ceremonies. In addition to Ben-
Zvi who greeted the delegates,
first in English then in Hebrew,
the mayors and other municipal
administrators from 34 countries
were welcomed by Foreign Minis-
ter Golda Meir and Minister of
Interior Moshe Shapiro.
ti
Other members of Israel's
cabinet were present, as well as
O
members of the diplomatic corps,
ranking heads of Israel govern-
ment departments, mayors and
members of city councils from
1=1 many Israeli municipalities.
Only city council members
representing the Herut Party boy-
cotted the session in protest
against the display_of the German
flag.
Israel's army band played the
national anthem Hatikvah as
President and Mrs. Ben-Zvi -en-
tered the auditorium. Li a cere-
mony opening the congress, West
Berlin's fighting anti-Nazi govern-
ing mayor, Willy Brandt, turned
over to Tel Aviv Mayor Mor-
dechai Namir the flag of the Iula
which has been in his custody
since the organization's - last con-
gress.
Mayor Brandt compared Jeru-
salem and Berlin as two divided
cities, pointing out that despite
the partition of the two capitals
both of the cities are growing and
expanding. Mayor Namir, in re-

growth since the Jewish slate was
established.
President Ben-Zvi pointed out
that local administrations on the
municipal level have a high im-
portance to the develoPment of a
country.
(Detroit is represented at the
Israel . conclave by Nathaniel
Goldstick, this city's corporation
counsel. He is among a U.S.
contingent of 75 municipal auth-
oritiei.)
Brandt Wednesday pleaded with
Israelis to believe him that re-
sponsible people in today's Ger-
many seriously try to learn from
the past and that their actions
are based on the lessons of
history.
The West Berlin mayor who
fled Germany during Hitler's rise
to power and fought against the
Nazis in Norway was warmly
applauded by tt‘e delegates in-
cluding several hundred Israelis.
"A German who speaks in Is-
rael," Brandt declared, "has to
bear the terrible burden of the
past. I bear this burden. I do
not believe in the wisdom of let-
ting the grass grow and forgetting
the past."
He said that Germany's great
hope was the younger generation
and they should be prepared to
