Download PDF for this date

When the five-year industrial plan of the Soviet government is completed two years hence, there will not remain a single declassed Jew in Russia, the Soviet Ort maintains on the basis of special statistics just made public. These statistics indicate that in 1932-1933 the number of Jewish workers will be increased by 74%, the number of artisans by 23% and the number of land workers by 70%. The Soviet Ort further calculates that when the five-year industrial plan has reached a successful conclusion only 3% of the Jews in Russia will remain unemployed.
