Boehm, who headed the West Ger-
man delegation which negotiated
the German- Israel reparation's
treaty, was honored on his 70th
birthday at a reception tendered
by the Israel mission in Cologne.
Dr. Felix Shinnar, head of the
mission, described Dr. Boehm as
one of the "righteous" to whom
Jews pay their high respects. He
said Prof. Boehm did much as
head of the reparations team and
that as a member of the Bunde-
stag, the West German parliament
lower house and as assistant chair-
man of the Bundestag indemnifica-
tion committee, he had shown
deep understanding of the prob-
lems of the victims of Nazism.
Dr. Shinner added that 70 trees
had been planted in Dr. Boehm's
honor in the Martyrs Wood in Is-
rael. He then read special birth-
day greetings sent by Israel Prem-
ier Levi Eshkol, Foreign Minister
Mrs. Golda Meir and former Prem-
ier David Ben-Gurion.
The event was also a - farewell
reception for Dr. Shinnar as he

turns to Israel soon.
