Jewish Telegraphic Agency

Energetic steps to create a pro-Ukrainian atmosphere for the approaching Schwartzbard trial are being taken by the Ukrainian Committee.

The Committee decided to publish a book to honor the memory of Petlura. The book was prepared by Shulgin and is devoted to a description of Petlura’s death and an attempt at a defense of the Petlura regime against the change of guilt for the anti-Jewish pogroms in the Ukraine. The Committee also decided to open a Ukrainian Petlura library in Paris.
