Warsaw in Mourning

Download PDF for this date

All the Jewish newspapers here appeared yesterday with heavy black borders around their pages as a mark of respect to the late Dr. Chaim Arlosoroff. The entire Jewish population has been deeply stirred by the death of Dr. Arlosoroff who was widely known and esteemed here.

A huge mass-meeting was held here yesterday and was addressed by David Ben-Gurion, Palestine labor leader who is visiting here, and by Beryl Locker, member of the executive of the World Zionist Organization.

The Borochov House, named in honor of the founder of the Poale Zion, labor fraction of the Zionist movement, and headquarters of the group here, was completely draped in mourning banners.
