  • Description

    ISRAELI COMMUNISTS PROTESTED WHEN DR KONRAD ADENAUER ARRIVED IN TEL AVIV YESTERDAY. THEY CARRIED PLACARDS REFERRING TO NAZI WAR CRIMES. THE FORMER WEST GERMAN CHANCELLOR IS ON AN EIGHT-DAY VISIT AT THE INVITATION OF THE ISRAELI GOVERNMENT AND THE WEIZMANN INSTITUTE OF SCIENCE.

    DEMONSTRATORS CARRIED PLACARDS READING: "ADENAUER RAUS" (ADENAUER GET OUT) -- "ADENAUER YOU FREED THE NAZI WAR CRIMINALS, YOU GAVE A FREE HAND TO THE NEO-NAZIS AND THE SS" -- "ADENAUER, YOUR RIGHT-HAND MAN WAS HANS GLOBKE WHO DRAFTED THE MURDEROUS NUREMBERG STATUTES" -- "ADENAUER, AN UNWANTED VISITOR IN ISRAEL". (LATER THE DEMONSTRATORS LAY ACROSS THE ROAD IN AN ATTEMPT TO BLOCK DR ADENAUER'S CAR.)
    DR ADENAUER SAID HIS VISIT WAS A GREAT EVENT IN HIS LIFE AS HE COULD BE ABLE TO SEE HOW THE WRONGS DONE BY HIS PEOPLE TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE WERE BEING PUT RIGHT. HE SAID HE DEEPLY APPRECIATED THE ABILITIES OF THE JEWS IN DEED AND SPIRIT.

    HE SEES HIS MISSION AS A CLIMAX TO THE WORK OF REPARATION HE LAUNCHED WHEN HE BECAME CHANCELLOR IN 1949, UNDER WHICH WEST GERMANY PAID ISRAEL GBP284 MILLION STERLING. NOW THE TWO COUNTRIES ARE HAVING TALKS ON BONN/S FIRST OFFICIAL GIFT OF ECONOMIC AID TO THE JEWISH STATE.

    (TODAY, DR ADENAUER WAS AWARDED AN HONORARY FELLOWSHIP BY THE WEIZMANN INSTITUTE. THE REST OF HIS VISIT, WHICH IS BEING BOYCOTTED BY THE COMMUNISTS, THE EXTREME NATIONALIST HERUTH PARTY AND OTHER GROUPS, WILL BE TAKEN UP BY TALKS AND SIGHT-SEEING).
