Download PDF for this date

The first nineteen Jewish families have left Germany to be settled on Jewish Colonization Association land in the Argentine, it was announced today. Families applying for settlement on this tract are required to have a minimum of five members, two of whom must have been carefully trained for farming.

The association collaborated with the Reich Representation of German Jews in selecting the first settlers from Germany for the project.
