Edmond Fleg, Top French Writer,
Jewish Scout Leader, Dies at 89

PARIS—Edmond Fleg, one of
Europe's leading writers, died
here Oct. 15 at the age of 89,
after a lengthy illness.
The funeral was held Oct. 18
at the Jewish cemetery in the
center of Paris Montparnasse
and rites were conducted by
Rabbi A. Chili, the chief chap-
lain of the Jewish Boy Scouts,
of which Fleg had long been a
patron.
Shortly before his death, the
noted writer asked that no
speeches be made at his funeral
and that Jewish scouts be posted
as honor guards at the rites.
Born in Geneva, Fleg made
his literary career in France and
became one of the country's best
known writers. He consistently
made Jewish subjects the theme
of much of his writing. He had
been an officer of the Alliance
Israelite Universelle and the
Jewish Christian Friendship So-
ciety. He was a member of the
French Legion of Honor and
a lauderate of the French Acad-
emy.

and devoted to all Jewish aspira-
tions both with regard to Israel
and in the Diaspora. He was one
of the leaders of the World
Jewish Congress and exercised a
great influence in the Jewish
intelligentsia and Jewish youth
in France. His passing is a deep
loss to the Jewish people."
