Download PDF for this date

The deplorable condition of Jews in Eastern European countries was described today by Mrs. Edward Jacobs, national president of Hadassah, women’s Zionist organization in America and Herbert J. Seligman, public relations director of the American Joint Distribution Committee, both of whom returned yesterday from European tours.

Mrs. Jacobs said that the mounting anti-Semitism abroad was a “reflection of the unhealthy and unwholesome general state” in Europe.

Mr. Seligman asserted that the Jews of Eastern and Central Europe were existing under conditions “more critical than even in the anarchic postwar years.”
