Erhard Warned: Pay Off All Claims
by End of '68 or Expect Wide Protest

(Direct JTA Teletype Wire to
The Jewish News)

BONN — Dr. Nahum Goldmann,
chairman of the Conference of
Jewish Material Claims Against
Germany, warned Chancellor Lud-
wig Erhard at a conference here
Wednesday that unless all deferred
payments due to claimants for in-
demification are paid in full by
the end of 1968, "all Jewish organ-
izations will launch strong pro-
tests. which I would regard as
Dr. Goldmann also told the chan-
cellor that the deadline of Sept.
20, 1966, for filing claims under
West Germany's "final indemnifi-
cation law," must be extended. It
will be impossible for some claim-
ants, especially elderly persons,
to prepare their claims before the
Sept. 20 cut-off date, Dr. Goldmann
said. As a result of the conversa-
tion with Erhard. he declared, "I
am sure the deadline will be pro-
longed for at least a year."
Concerning the deferment of
full payments to indemnification
claimants, Erhard told the Jew-
ish leader that the postponement
was necessary due to the Ger-
man government's budgetary
"I told Mr. Erhard," Dr. Gold-
mann told the Jewish Telegraphic
Agency, "that those payments are
privileged and of a special moral
character. I expressed my con-
cern over the fact that due to the
budget curtailment law passed by
Germany this year, those pay-
ments are limited to 40 per cent
this year." It was at this point that
Dr. Goldmann warned that the
payments must be made in full by
1968, lest West Germany be sub-
jected to protests by Jewish or-
During his visit here, Dr. Gold-
mann had expected also to discuss
the indemnification affairs with
Finance Minister Rolf Dahlgruen,
but that meeting was canceled be-
cause Dr. Dahlgruen was not feel-
ing well.
While visiting Bonn, Dr. Gold-
mann met also briefly with Dr.
Konrad A d e n a u e r, the former
chancellor. "He expressed his par-
ticular satisfaction with Dr. Aden-
auer's recent visit to Israel. He
met also with Dr. Eugen Gersten-

in Israel's Development,
Bundestag Leader Says

(Direct JTA Teletype Wire to
The Jewish News)

NEW 'YORK — Dr. Rainer Bar-
zel, majority leader of the Ger-
man Bundestag, told American
Jewish leaders Tuesday that the
problem of Israel - German rela-
tions "should not only be used
from a political vantage but from
a moral point of view."
Speaking before a meeting of
the Conference of Presidents of
Major American Jewish Organiza-
tions, the West German political
leader said that he sees "a special
role for Germany in the peaceful
industrial development of the state
of Israel."
The two-hour session provided
for a candid exchange of views
and an airing of concerns on
matters affecting German - Jew-
ish relations.

Ambassador Goldberg Urges 2 Sides
on Vietnam Issue Listen to Each Other

W26iLTI-LkM, Mass.—If the na-
tional debate about the war in Viet-
nam is to accomplish its purpose,
U.S. Ambassador to the United
Nations Arthur J. Goldberg said
Sunday, "when the citizens speak
the government must listen; when
in their turn, government officials
speak, the citizens must listen."

Ambassador Goldberg, in the
principal address during Brandeis
University's 15th commencement
exercises, added: "Thus we will not
have a mere shouting contest, but
a dialogue from which tomorrow's
new decisions will emerge."
The ambassador said he wel-
comed the freedom of expression
that is being manifested by stu-
dents in the colleges and uni-

Ex-Nazi Will Face

BONN (JTA) — A 52-year-old
former Nazi policeman, Gerhard
Schlosser, will be tried for the
fourth time on charges of war
crimes committed in the Czensto-
chow ghetto in occupied Poland.
He has been accused of murder-
ing 40 Jews and was tried for the
1942 murder of Harry Mittler, a
Jewish medical assistant in the
ghetto. He received one sentence
of 10 years at hard labor and one
for life imprisonment, but both
sentences were quashed.
In his most recent trial, in No-
vember 1965 in Schweinfurt, the
jury decided it was unable to try
him and the case was suspended.
The Schweinfurt court held the
case to involve manslaughter and
not murder because the prosecu-
tion was unable to prove that
Schlosser had killed Mittler be-
cause of "race hatred."
The court then noted that the
statute of limitations for man-
slaughter beCame effective in 1960,
and the jury said it could not act.
Meanwhile, a group of experts
from the Central Office for the
Prosecution of Nazi War Criminals
was in Prague studying documents
relating to Nazi crimes. The visits
were arranged last January in
Prague with the Czechoslovak
Commission for War Crimes.

versities of America, not only on
Vietnam, but on all the great
issues of our day . . ."
It is also vital, said Ambassador
Goldberg, "that freedom of expres-
sion exist within the government
as well as outside of it. Perhaps
the greatest danger of McCarthy-
ism was the threat to stifle within
government the free discussion
which is so vital to informed and
responsible decision making."
In the present debate, however,
said Ambassador Goldberg, rules
of order—like the rules of order
established for the traditional New
England town meeting—must be
observed "if freedom of speech is
to be both meaningful and pos-
"The reason for (this) need is
quite elementary: if everyone
speaks at once, no one will be heard
and freedom of speech will be
meaningless," he added.
Ambassador Goldberg, who re-
ceived an honorary doctor of laws
degree, spoke t o graduates a n d
some 6,000 persons attending the
commencement exercises.
Brandeis awarded degrees to
334 undergraduates and 158 gradu-
ate students, and granted honor-
ary degrees to other distinguished
personalities, including Israel Am-
bassador Avraham Harman; David
Dubinsky, former president of the
International Ladies Garment
Workers Union; Benjamin H. Swig,
of San Francisco, a member of the
Brandeis board of trustees; and
Isador Lubin, well-known Jewish
Others who received honorary
degrees were Andrew W. Cordier,
dean of the School of International
Affairs at Columbia University;
Barnaby C. Keeney, president of
Brown University; Henry T. Heald,
former president of the Ford Foun-
dation; and Francis Keppel, chair-
man of the board of the General
Learning Corporation.

Normal Childhood Aid
The "forgotton" child is one who,
having survived the critical pre-
school years in safety, finds him-
self denied the privilege of what
we consider a normal childhood,
UNICEF reports. Instead of living
with his family, he may be hiding
out with gangs, "hustling" a living
or setting up housekeeping of sorts
with friends of his own age —
making plans for no future except
the next meal or a place to lay his
head for the night.
