About this Item

Stiff wrappers. 12mo. 54 pages. 20 cm. First and only edition. In English with some German. Reports and Addresses of the Annual Meeting of the American Federation of Jews from Central Europe. The American Federation of Jews from Central Europe was the central representative agency of over thirty local and national organizations established by Jewish victims of Nazism from Central Europe in the United States. It was incorporated in New York in 1941 to safeguard their rights and to sponsor social service programs. The Annual Report from 1956 contains a central essay, "After Ten Years in Germany" which details the overall dismal state of German consciousness, the fact that anti-semitism is still very present, the experiences of German Jews, the many hundreds if not thousands of war criminals who have not faced sentencing or even arrest, the lack of direction in the U. N for truly attempting to prosecute for genocide, etc. From the introductory remarks: "Since our Annual Meeting many rather important things have developed: The new Federal Indemnification Law was passed by the German Parliament and published on June 29, 1956; a new decree has been issued by the Boon government regulating the claims of former officials and employees of Jewish communities and organizations in Germany; and through our effort a General Ruling has been issued by the Treasury Department in Washington according to which all indemnification payments, including pensions, received from Germany are not taxable under the Federal Internal Revenue Code.
