Download PDF for this date

The convocation as soon as possible of a Jewish Cultural World Congress has been decided on at the Conference of the Yiddish P.E.N. Centre now holding a two-day session at Vilna.

A new executive is to be elected, consisting of five members from New York, five from Warsaw and three from Vilna.

Proposals for the formation of Yiddish P.E.N. Centres in Palestine (where there is a Hebrew P.E.N. Centre in existence) in the Argentine, and in Roumania are down for discussion.
