An interview with a group of young Zionist Revisionists who stopped here on their way to Palestine, explaining the history and purposes of Zionism, appeared here in the newspaper Buleignu This is the first time Turkish newspapers have carried an article on Zionism.

The Revisionists, all members of the Brith Trumpeldor, are on their way to Palestine on foot after traversing Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Austria, Rumania and Bulgaria.

They told the correspondent their brown uniforms must not be mistaken for those of the German Nazis, but represent the “brown earth of Palestine.”
