Dr. Dietrich Goldschmidt, leader of the Aktion Suehnezeichen (the "Repentance Action Committee") and professor of sociology at the Pedagogische Hochschule in West Berlin, gave two lectures, on "Anti-Semitism in Germany" and on “The Impact of the Past on the Situation in Germany.”  The Repentance Action Committee strove for decades to help Germans atone for the crimes of the Nazis.
