The first copy of the memorial volume containing the names of twelve thousand Jewish soldiers killed in the World War was despatched yesterday to President Paul von Hindenburg by the President of the Union of Jewish Front Soldiers, which publishes the volume, Colonel Leo Loewenstein.

Colonel Loewenstein told the press that Reichswehr headquarters are encouraging the Union of Jewish Front Soldiers to enlighten the masses regarding the patriotism of the Jews.
