Blind Argentinian Jew
to Get $10;000 for Aid
in Eichmann Capture

TEL AVIV (JTA)—A 70-year-old
blind Argentinian Jew will receive
a $10,000 reward from the Israeli
government for providing informa-
tion that led to the capture of
Adolf Eichmann in Argentina in
1960, it was announced here.
The announcement ended the 12-
year-long fight of Luther Herman

Dr. Goldmann spoke before th e.
board of deputies of British Jews
and guests who gave him a stand-
ing ovation at the conclusion of
his remarks.
Dr. Goldmann stated that plan-
ning for the future can only be
effective if there is international
Jewish cooperation and diaspora;
Israel cooperation in such plait-
ning. There is no time to lose,
he warned. "Some 3,000,000 Jews
live in the Soviet Union. It would
be an untenable proposition that
we should give up the fight for
the rights of Soviet Jews to live
as Jews."

Dr. Goldman noted that there
was no Jewish problem within
the Third World but that those
nations know little or nothing
about Jews, past and present.
At the same time, they are a
decisive power in the United
Nations whose future may yet
be more effective than its past
and present.
"Latin America hovers between

the West and the Third (World)
force. It is a continent in turmoil
and revolution. There is some anti-
Semitism there, but this is not
the main danger to Jews," the
WJCongress leader said. "The
main danger is inherent in the
revolutionary situation within Latin
American society. We can learn
something from Cuba. Castro is
friendly to Israel and Jews. Bat
a community of 10,000 souls has
been ruined because it did not
fit into the new pattern," he said.
