Russian Refugees Praise Generosity of Serbian Jews; Aided Even Enemies

(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The generosity of Serbian Jews, extending even to enemies of the Jewish race and pogrom leaders, was praised by the Russian Refugees Committee here, in a letter to Chief Rabbi Alkalay.

In its communication, the Russian Refugees Committee thanks the Serbian Jews for assisting the Russian emigrants in Jugoslavia.

“Although the Jewish physicians and the Jewish philanthropic institutions knew perfectly well that among the patients and recipients of their charity were many pogromists, they all, without exception, received from the Jewish institutions a fully humanitarian and brotherly treatment,” the Russian Refugees Committee wrote.
