Poale Zion Leader is Freed by Latvia

Professor M. Laserohn, leader of the Poale Zion, Socialist Zionists, who was arrested by the Fascist dictatorship now ruling Latvia, was released today from a concentration camp in which he has been imprisoned since last June.

Immediately on coming into power, the Latvian dictatorship broke up the Jewish working class organizations, imprisoning their leaders in concentration camps in approved Nazi fashion.
