Jewish Landworkers Seek to Settle in South Russia

Download PDF for this date

Thirty-four Jewish families consisting of 236 land workers have applied through the “Ort” for permission to settle in South Russia.

The Ukrainian law bans immigration into that Section unless the colonies there specifically request the workers. The application will be sent to the Russian colonists to ascertain if they will consent to the settlement.
