Download PDF for this date

A group of 250 German Jewish children recruited under the auspices of the Hilfsverein der Deutschen Juden, central Jewish aid group, will leave Germany for the United States next week, it was announced today.

The children are coming to the American Republic to avoid being educated in Nazified schools, where anti-Jewish racial teachings, which are now compulsory, have made the position of Jewish pupils tragic.
