Abstract (Document Summary)

NEW YORK (JTA) - The Slovak government said it would not interfere in a dispute between Slovakia's Jewish community and Germany over compensation for the deportation of 58,000 Jews to Nazi concentration camps by the pro-Nazi wartime Slovak state. In March, a Berlin court rejected a $60 million lawsuit lodged by Jewish community leaders, ruling they were not entitled to claim compensation on behalf of the victims.

NEW YORK (JTA) - Ernest Barbarash, a former JTA staffer and longtime Zionist advocate whose career spanned most of the 20th century, died recently in New York at the age of 99. Barbarash began his career in journalism with the JTA in London, and was assigned to the New York office in 1925. He later worked for the Zionist Organization of America, where he was instrumental in developing contacts between the US government and Jewish leaders in Palestine as the State of Israel was being created. In later years, he worked for the humanitarian organization Bnai Zion and contributed articles to Jewish periodicals.
