A number of Zionist leaders in former Czechoslovakia and elsewhere have been sent by the Nazis to Lublin, which has been envisioned as the capital of a Jewish “reservation” reportedly contemplated by the Reich in Nazi-held Poland, according to information received today by the Jewish Agency for Palestine.

The leaders, among whom is believed to be Dr. Jacob Edelstein, head of the Jewish Agency’s office in Prague, were reportedly dispatched to organize Jewish immigration to the territory.
