Bureya Disappointing for Jewish Immigrants from Abroad Jewish Communist Organ Complains: 80 Per Cent

Jews who have come from abroad in order to settle in Bursya are disappointed with the conditions there, the Jewish Communist organ “Emess” reports, especially the group of forty Jews who came from the Argentine. Although many Jews are coming into the Soviet Union from other countries to take advantage of the settlement facilities in Bureya, it says, the conditions in Bureya, where there is no proper accommodation for them, are disappointing, and 80 per cent. of the new arrivals are returning, unable to make their homes there. The “Emess” demands that immediate measures should be taken to improve conditions, because otherwise no further migration of Jews to Bureya will be possible.
