GERMAN CARNEGIE HERO FUND RESURRECTED

According to the June 2006 newsletter of the Carnegie Hero Fund
Commission, "After 72 years of inactivity, Andrew Carnegie?s German
hero fund, which was taken over by the Nazis in 1934, has been
resurrected, thanks to the efforts of a private citizen in Mannheim.

The "Carnegie Stiftung fuer Lebensretter" (CSL), or Carnegie
Foundation for Rescuers, was re-established April 15 on receiving
recognition from the German courts as the only heir of the
original fund. Andreas Huber, 36, the visionary behind the effort,
said the reconstruction of CSL was a "painful" process and that it
took hard work to get permission from the authorities to rebuild."

[The article pictures a prewar German Carnegie Hero Fund medal.
With the resurrection of the German Fund, perhaps a new medal is
in the offing.  Walter Rutkowski of the U.S. commission will be
going to Germany in July to participate in a ceremony for the new
German fund.  -Editor]
