Refugee Relief Funds in Paris Nearly Exhausted

Download PDF for this date

Relief for German Jewish refugees in Paris is well organized, but funds are already exhausted, Samuel A. Telsey has reported in a cable to the New York office of the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society. Mr. Telsey is one of the main European representatives of the Society.

The situation is growing worse daily, he reported, and German Jews will be in a state of blank despair by October of this year, he reports. Immediate relief for Jews in provincial Germany is imperative, Mr. Telsey stated, urging united action by all American agencies.

He said that relief and immigration agencies in Berlin would serve their purpose best by being under American control, as the German Jewish relief agencies in the capital are “on a volcano crater.”
