SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

Miscellany from European Capitals By Our Berlin Correspondent

A plan for the establishment of a Jewish labor colony in Germany has been under consideration for some time by the Central Office for Jewish Migrant Welfare, and has now been approved by the All-German Federation of Jewish Communities.

The Federation has issued an appeal to all organizations of Jewish communities affiliated with it, urging them to help forward the work. “The effort to establish a Jewish labor colony which will provide a productive basis for the migrants’ welfare work, is deserving of support,” the appeal says. “We are in whole-hearted agreement with this work, aiming to give work to unemployed, especially to released prisoners, and we call upon all the bodies of Jewish communities affiliated with the Federation to assist in this undertaking.”

The projected labor colony will be based on the lines of agricultural, horticultural and handicraft activity and will seek to give a fresh chance to people who have been economically uprooted, and to such who have been broken by society, so that they should be able to re-establish themselves as productive members of society.
