Latvia Lifts Ban on Artisan Units

Download PDF for this date

Latvian Jewish artisans’ organizations, suppressed last year when the Fascists took power, were legalized today by the Minister of the Interior. The Minister officially approved the list of new leaders for the groups submitted to him.

When the Fascists came into power last May, all Jewish working class organizations were declared illegal and a number of Jewish leaders, including Poale Zionists and Bundists were arrested and sent to concentration camps.
