German Jews Shocked at Arlosoroff Death

Note: These plans are described in detail on page 10 of this issue.

The tragic death of Dr. Chaim Arlosoroff in Tel Aviv has severely shocked the Jews of Germany who had hopes that the plans enabling them to settle in Palestine, worked out by Dr. Arlosoroff on a recent visit to Berlin, would provide a solution to the great problems now confronting them.

Dr. Arlosoroff fathered two schemes in which the Jews of Germany placed their utmost hope and confidence. One was for the establishment of an international bank to enable the German Jews to salvage their capital and take it out of Germany by exporting German goods instead of cash

The second scheme was for the settlement of several thousand German youths in Palestine in order to save the Jewish children from Nazi influences.

Dr. Arlosoroff returned to Palestine with these plans after discussing them in London with Sir Philip Cunliffe-Lister, Secretary of State for the Colonies, in order to obtain the approval of the Government.
