OTTAWA, Ont. (Apr. 16)
Prime Minister Bennett of Canada addressing a Zionist mass meeting here last night urged the public to contribute to the upbuilding of Palestine as a place of refuge for German exiles.
His speech, together with those of A. J. Freiman, president of Canada Zionists, and Morris Rothenberg, president of the American Zionist organization, was broadcast over the air.
In the principal address of the evening, Mr. Rothenberg stated that the position of German Jews is constantly growing worse. He painted a picture of Nazism’s victims in fear and trembling, with the children condemned to the cruelest fate of all. They are existing, he said, in an “atmosphere of hatred and poison, their future blighted and nothing to look forward to.”
In response to Mr. Rothenberg’s appeal for funds, $10,000 was raised to aid in the work of refugee settlement in Palestine.
