To Inscribe Self-defense Names in Golden Book

Download PDF for this date

The members of the Jewish self-defense corps in Palestine are to be inscribed in the Golden Book of the Jewish National Fund for their heroic defense of the Yishub during the disaster. A decision to this effect was taken by a group of Palestinian students in London.

“While the Jewish world is chiefly concentrated on commemorating the fallen victims, we shall pay due tribute to the defenders of the Jewish population,” the students decided.
