Download PDF for this date

The centenary of the birth of Baron Horace Gunzburg, noted Jewish philanthropist who died in St. Petersburg in 1909 at the age of seventy-six, accurs today and will be appropriately commemorated by the Russian Community living in France.

A Committee has been organized here for the purpose of issuing a biography written by Henri Sliosberg, noted lawyer, who collaborated with him for several decades. The biography is to be issued in French, Russian, Hebrew and Yiddish.

Baron Gunzburg was noted for his generous benefactions and his vigorous defense of the Jews against persecutions during the Czarist regime.
