Jews Observe Palestine Week in the Reich

Download PDF for this date

The celebration of Palestine Week opened here today with an impressive address by Dr. Martin Buber, one of the spiritual leaders of German Jewry.

In his address Dr. Buber vigorously attacked the party system in Zionism. He emphasized that this is disrupting the communal organism. The character of a land should be fixed by ideals concerning the community as a whole, and not by self-seeking motives of different groups and parties, he declared.

The acquisition of the Huleh land concession by the Jews of Palestine was properly observed at the opening ceremony of Palestine Week. The ceremony was attended by hundreds of Berlin Jews, including many non-Zionists.
