Plan to Move Hachshara Farms from Reich to Poland

Download PDF for this date

Jewish leaders today laid plans for removing training of German-Jewish youth for Palestine colonization work to Poland in view of increasing difficulties facing such work here. It is also feared that the forthcoming Nazi Nuremburg Congress would completely prohibit Jews from working on farms.

Under present plans, special farms will be established around Wilno and other Polish districts where German-Jewish youth will be trained prior to departure for Palestine.

The farms will be supported by the Council for German Jewry, a representative of which will soon leave for Poland in connection with the project.
