Better Understanding Between Jews and Ukrainians Will Be Sought

(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

An attempt to establish a better understanding between Ukrainian and Jewish leaders will be made shortly, it was learned here today.

In certain Jewish circles here it is being planned to call a conference of Jewish and Ukrainian leaders to eliminate any further causes for bad feeling and irritation between Ukrainians and Ukrainian Jews.

Following the conclusion of the trial, Mikola Chapoval, former general in the Ukrainian army and one of the witnesses for the Petlura party, approached Dr. Leo Motzkin, of the Schwartzbard Defense Committee and one of the witnesses for the defense. Extending his hand, Chapoval stated: “Now that the trial is ended, let Jews and Ukrainians live in peace together.”
