Many Prussian Jewish Communities Face Liquidation

Download PDF for this date

Warning that a great number of Jewish communities are on the point of liquidating because Jews have been forced to emigrate abroad and to other cities of Germany is contained in the report of the Prussian Association of Jewish Communities which will be submitted to a conference of the association’s council on Sunday.

The report said the association has subsidized 367 communities. It pointed out that in 185 Prussian communities the number of Jews had dwindled to an average of fifty-four.
