Committee Asked to Aid Transfer of 1,197 Youths to Palestine

A memorandum asking the aid of the Intergovernmental Refugee Committee for the transfer of 1,197 juveniles and children with certificates for Palestine who are now “stranded in war-torn Europe” has been presented to American Vice-Chairman Myron C. Taylor by Mrs. David de Sola Pool, vice-president of Hadassah.

At the same time, Hadassah announced that 124 Jewish child war refugees from Germany, Austria and Poland sailed yesterday for Palestine from Trieste, Italy, on the steamship Galilee, transferred under the auspices of the Youth Aliyah organization. Places are ready for them in 35 Palestine agricultural colonies.
