  • Description

    DR. ROLF PAULS, WEST GERMANY'S FIRST AMBASSADOR TO ISRAEL, PRESENTED HIS CREDENTIALS TO PRESIDENT ZALMAN SHAZAR OF ISRAEL YESTERDAY (THURSDAY).

    AMONG THOSE PRESENT AT THE BRIEF CEREMONY WERE MR. LEVAVI, DIRECTOR GENERAL OF THE FOREIGN OFFICE, AND MRS. GOLDA MEIR, ISRAEL'S FOREIGN MINISTER.

    WHILE THE GERMAN AMBASSADOR WAS IN THE PRESIDENTIAL PALACE THERE WERE ANGRY SCENES OUTSIDE WHERE DEMONSTRATORS CLASHED WITH POLICE. SINCE IT WAS ANNOUNCED THAT DIPLOMATIC RELATIONS WOULD BE ESTABLISH BETWEEN WEST GERMANY AND ISRAEL THERE HAS BEEN A SERIES OF PROTEST DEMONSTRATIONS. THEY HAVE ORGANISED MAINLY BY THE NATIONALIST OPPOSITION HERUTH PARTY.

    DR. PAULS, WHO LOST AN ARM WHEN SERVING IN HITLER'S ARMY, SAID THE NEW GERMANY LOOKED BACK WITH SADNESS AND ABHORRENCE AT THE HIDEOUS CRIMES OF THE NAZIS.

    (THE WEST GERMAN GOVERNMENT SAID TODAY THAT IT FULLY UNDERSTOOD THE EMOTIONAL ATTITUDE STILL EXISTING IN ISRAEL. IT WELCOMED YESTERDAY'S ISRAELI STATEMENT THAT THE DARKEST NIGHT MUST GIVE WAY TO THE DAWN.)
