Download PDF for this date

Delegates from various European countries arrived in London today to participate in an international conference for the purpose of seeking out new territories for Jewish immigration and colonization.

The conference will open tomorrow in the Great Russell Hotel and continue for three days. Dr. Moses Gaster, sage, will preside at the gathering.

The delegates will be given a luncheon at the House of Commons during the conference. Numerous members of Commons and of the House of Lords are interested in the projects which the parley will discuss.

The initiative for the calling of the meeting came from the Jewish Territorialist League in Poland, the French League for Jewish Colonization and the League for Jewish Colonization in Great Britain. Representatives of Central Jewish organizations in Europe will be present.

Results of investigations made in certain territories where Jews could be settled will be reported. Special reports will be submitted on the possibilities of Jewish colonizations in Angola, Syria and countries in Central and South America.

The conference will be addressed by prominent Jewish and non-Jewish speakers. Special stress will be laid on the present situation of the Jews in Poland and Germany.
