Goldmann to Pay Respects to Adenauer at Special Ceremony in Bonn

Download PDF for this date

Because the funeral of Dr. Konrad Adenauer will be held on Tuesday, the first day of Passover, Dr. Nahum Goldmann will not attend the funeral services as previously announced, but will, instead, pay his respects to the late German Chancellor and his family at a special wreath-laying ceremony on Sunday, April 23, in the Chancellory Building in Bonn, where Dr. Adenauer will lie in state after his body is brought there on Saturday from his Rhondorf home where he died.

Special arrangements have been made with the German Government for this ceremony so that Dr. Goldmann, both personally and on behalf of the Jewish people of the world, can pay his respects to a man whom he described as one of the “great friends” of the Jewish people and Israel. Dr. Goldmann will participate in this ceremony as president of three Jewish organizations: the World Jewish Congress, the Jewish Agency for Israel and the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany.
