The Rev. Fr. R. L. Bruckberger,
Chaplain General of the French ;
Resistance in the last war, winner
of the Croix de Guerre. is a dedi-
cated Catholic who has devoted al
great deal of time to research on
the life of Christ. In "The History
of Jesus Christ," published by Vik-

cation to his faith. He draws upon
modern experiences in conveying
his view of what he terms the hu-
man aspects of the Jesus story.

During the course of his recent visit to West Germany at the
invitation of Bonn, Dr. Max Nussbaum (left), chairman of the Amer-
ican Section of the World Jewish Congress, met with Chancellor
Erhard of Germany. Dr. Nussbaum had talks with other leading
officials and visited a number of major centers in the course of his
tour of Germany.
