Turkish Zionist Group to Aid Jews of Thrace

Download PDF for this date

The establishment of a Jewish organization aiming to facilitate emigration of Turkish Jews to Palestine, has been announced here. This is the first pro-Palestine organization formed in Turkey, where Zionism is forbidden.

The new organization will devote itself chiefly to helping the Jews of Turkish Thrace in those districts who are still in a very difficult position in view of the recent anti-Jewish events there.
