The new body which will
handle the indemnification
claims would eventually
have 12 representatives on
the Jewish side and eight
representatives on the
German side, not neces-
sarily all Germans. The

governments of Israel and
West Germany would also
be represented on this
body, Dr. Goldmann said.

He also stated that Israel
had agreed to accept this
agreement as a final mone-
tary figure. The sum in-
volved was DM 600 million.
Meanwhile, efforts to ob-
tain compensation for Jew-
ish victims of Nazism from
the East German Demo-
cratic Republic were de-
scribed last week at the
opening of the annual meet-
ing here of the board of di-
rectors of the Conference on
Jewish Material, Claims
Against Germany.
The delegates, represent-
ing 22 Jewish organizations
all over the world, also
heard reports on the prog-
ress of negotiations with
Austria with respect to its
obligations to Nazi victims
and on West Germany's
payments to date to various
categories of Holocaust vic-
tims.

Dr. Benjamin Ferencz,
of New York, reported that
only about 1,000 Jews re-

main within East Ger-
many but so far these first
victims of Nazism have
been denied any compen-
sation from the East Ger-
man regime.

that there was no likeli-
hood of legislation by the
Democratic Republic and
that East Germany re-
fused to accept liability for
Nazi victims.

He said that with the as-
sistance of the United
States, which extended dip-
lomatic recognitiOn to East
Germany last year, though
on less than an ambassador-
ial level, a representative of
an anti-Fascist organization
in East Berlin indicated
readiness to examine the
situation.
But the organization in-
sisted that it would meet
only with Americans for the
limited purpose of discuss-
ing. American claims, mean-
ing claims by Nazi victims
who are now American citi-
zens.
Dr. Goldmann told the
meeting that he had estab-
lished contact at the govern-
ment level in East Germany
and might meet with the
East German leader Erich
Honecker late in Septem-
ber.

Dr. Goldmann also re-
ported that negotiations
were progressing with Aus-
tria on the third and final
payment by that country to
Nazi victims. He said Aus-
tria is expected to agree to
pay about $35 million after
its next elections but there
was a possibility of advance
payments to victims.

He cautioned, however,

Bein's 'Heal' Reprinted in German

By JOSEF FRAENKEL

Jewish News Special
London Correspndent

Once Vienna was the cen-
ter of Zionist publications.
It was in that city that "Der
Judenstaat" and "Das Neue
Ghetto" by Herzl as well as
works by Mathias Acher,
Max Nordau, Leon Kellner,
Tula Nussenblatt, N.M. Gel-
ber, Robert Stricker and
others were published.

What was, however, miss-
ing, in spite of the books by
A. Friedemann, L. Kellner
and M. Georg, was a corn-
prehensive Herzl biography.
This gap was filled when
Alex Bein's standard work
on the creator of modern
Zionism appeared.
I remember one day, in
1934, Dr. Bauer of the Fiba
Publishing House showed
me the manuscript. It was
written in a masterful style
and brought to life the great
personality of Theodor
Herzl.

At that time Hitler was
already in power in Ger-
many, and the danger of
he Nazi regime in Austria
ecame increasingly im-
minent. Bein's book
helped to gain more fol-
lowers of Zionism, and
many of them took their
copies with them when
they later went to Israel.
The work was soon out of

stock, and whenever it
turned up in a bookshop, a
high price was demanded. It
was soon translated into
Hebrew, English and other
languages.
The Austrian-Israel So-
ciety in Vienna is to be .com-
mended for having pub-
lished a new German
edition, at a time, when
Arabs, Communists and
Fascists together attack
Zionism.
In his preface, Bein

writes: ". . . The new edi- pher. It contains essays by

Institute for Elderly Begun

NEW YORK — Long-
term funding has been as-
sured for a Jerusalem-based
research and demonstration
institute designed to ulti-
mately benefit the elderly in
urban societies throughout
the world.
Philanthropist Henry L.
Schwartz, head of the
Brookdale Foundation-Ra-
mapo Trust in New York,
completed arrangements for
a unique $15-million collab-
oration among Brookdale-
Ramapo, the American Jew-
ish Joint Distribution Com-
mittee, and the government
of Israel.

with construction to begin
shortly. Also planned is a
center to serve the senior
adults of the surrounding
community.
The institute, already in
operation in the former
archeological building on
the Hebrew University
campus, seeks to identify
problems in the fields of
gerontology and human
development and to find
innovative solutions to
enable the aged to live
more productive lives.
Dedicated to research,
teaching, and the formula-
tion of policy and pro-
grams with the prime ob-
jective of improving the
quality of life for the eld-
erly, the institute also
aims to develop resources
of work and social activity
to prepare people for the
advanced stages of life.
The demonstration pro-
grams will benefit those in
Israel and will serve as a
model to other countries of
viable alternatives to in-
stitutional care.

The arrangements make
funding available to the
Brookdale Institute of
Gerontology and Adult
Human Development in
Israel for research pro-
grams, the building in Je-
rusalem of a 100-bed geria-
tric facility adjacent to a
new teaching hospital,
Misgav Ladach, and a
50-unit apartment com-
plex for the well aged,

GENEVA (JTA) — Dr.
Nahum Goldmann, Presi-
dent of the Memorial Foun-
dation for Jewish Culture,
told the organization's
hoard of trustees holding its
annual meeting here that he
expected the West German
government to sign an
agreement for a final mone-
r y settlement of claims
.sing out of the Nazi era
some time in October.
He said the agreement,
which had been negotiated
and shaped over a number
of months, would come into
force in April 1976.
Chancellor
Helmuth
Schmidt, and the govern-
ment as a whole, including
the two major political par-
ties in West Germany, were
in favor of the agreement,
Dr. Goldmann reported.
