(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Hundreds of Jewish families, belonging to the so-called declassed categories are among the 5,000 families evicted from their dwellings in the municipalized houses in Moscow.

The eviction was carried out in accordance with the recent decision of the Soviet authorities that non-working elements have no right to make use of municipal houses.
