Ludwig Foerder settled in Jerusalem in 1933 after fleeing Nazi Germany. He had been a German lawyer of some distinction, totally dedicated to truth, the rule of law and social democracy. He had crossed swords with the Nazis and was near the top of their hit list not just as a prominent Jewish lawyer and a social democrat, but because he had personally conducted the state prosecution of Hitler in court in 1924, when the latter had been indicted for Nazi desecration of Jewish cemeteries. An able and outspoken orator in German courts, Ludwig Foerder later also spoke out strongly against those of our people who, by word and action, contributed to the souring of relations between Jews and indigenous Arabs around the time of the establishment of the State. His life in Erez Israel and his legacies were devoted to enhancing Jewish-Arab understanding and reconciliation.
