Cooperative Convention Agrees Not to Oust Jews from Artels

Download PDF for this date

The convention of cooperatives today decided not to exclude from the cooperative and artisans’ cooperatives in the Ukraine and White Russia, former Jewish storekeepers. It was also decided not to liquidate the Jewish loan societies as demanded by the Jewish Communists. Both decisions were adopted after a fight put up by Tichomirov, head of the cooperative movement.
