Moscow (Feb. 24)
The first case of the merging of a Jewish colony with a non-Jewish colony in Crimea was reported today. The student’s brigade arriving from Moscow to supervise collectivization, merged the Jewish colony Rykov in the Jankoy region with three neighboring non-Jewish colonies.
The merged territory, comprising 14,000 hectares, is named “Third International,” and consists of Russians, Tartars Germans, Greeks and Armenians. Immediately upon merging, a meeting was held at which it was decided to submit candlesticks and other religious articles to the collective for a special fund.
A similar decision was adopted in the neighboring Jewish colony of Larin dorf. The students’ brigade reports that many Jewish villages in the Jankov region, including Larindort, Brdionovka and Stahlinshtat, collectivized by the brigade, are submitting cattle and other inventory to the collective.
