Editor's acknowledgments

We should like to express our gratitude to the two authors of these most valuable studies. Those or Mr. Wellers appeared in "Le Monde Juif" (No. 86-1977 and 89-1978) and that of Dr. Billig in "La Solution Finale de la Question Juive", a work which our Foundation published in 1978.
