40 Boys Quit Reich, Go to Holy Land

Download PDF for this date

Forty Jewish boys, none over fifteen years of age left Berlin for Palestine today. Touching scenes were enacted at the railroad station as the fathers and mothers who were sending their children away from their homes gathered to say goodbye to them. All the young emigrants are on their way to Palestine because there is no future for Jewish boys in the Third Reich.

The situation of young Jewish boys and girls in Germany is daily becoming more serious. Those who were graduated from the elementary schools this Summer are finding that the path to further education is closed to them because they are Jewish.
