JTA Transmits News Despite Raging Flood

Download PDF for this date

Utilizing news regarding the Palestine flood, the official government radio station in Germany today spread false reports about the Jewish Telegraphic Agency over the radio.

In its broadcast the radio station, at Berlin, announced that the Jewish Telegraphic Agency had been compelled to suspend its news service from Palestine as a result of the flood. The broadcast is absolutely baseless, since the Jewish Telegraphic Agency service from Palestine reached Warsaw today and during all three days of the storm without interruption.
