Polish Jewish Journalists in Rumania Ask Aid

Download PDF for this date

The Palestine Jewish Journalists’ Association today received a desperate appeal for aid from Polish Jewish journalists who are now refugees in Rumania, including the editors of the newspapers Chwila, Hajnt, Moment and Nasz Przeglad. The message said that unless immediate aid was sent none of the group would remain alive. It declared that veteran Zionist leaders and journalists, starving, were compelled to return to Polish territory now held by Soviet Russia.

Joseph Heftman, noted Hebrew writer of Polish origin, made a statement to the J.T.A. in Tel Aviv appealing to American Jewish journalists to rush funds to the writers in Rumania to sustain them until it would be possible to arrange aid from Palestine.
