Weizmann Pays Tribute to Late Jean Fischer

Download PDF for this date

“Four years ago I saw Jean Fischer at work and we got nearer. He understood the problems of Palestine upbuilding and in spite of his reservations helped in every way possible by participating in the actual upbuilding, by investing his money and by linking his life gradually with Palestine.” Such was the tribute paid by Dr. Chaim Weizmann, president of the World Zionist Organization, at yesterday’s Zionist Executive memorial meeting in honor of the late Jean Fischer, leader of the Belgian Zionists.
