Ukrainian Soviet Authorities Start Division of Land for Jewish Colonization

The People’s Commissariat for Agriculture in the Ukraine has published its decision to allot, from the general colonization area in the neighborhood of the Jewish colonies in the Ukraine, land for Jewish colonization purposes.

The Crimean District Committee of the Communist Party has adopted a resolution to consider in principle: first, whether it is possible to settle Jewish farmers on the free land in the Crimea, and second, to investigate, together with a special committee to be appointed for that purpose, the possibilities of settling Jewish town workers on the available land.
