Mozes Hailed As “hero of Jewish Journalism”

Mendel Mozes was hailed today by Dr. Samuel Margoshes, editor of The Day, as “a hero of Jewish journalism.”

Writing in his daily English column in the Yiddish newspaper, Dr. Margoshes describes the circumstances under which Mozes remained at his post in Warsaw and concludes: “The saga of his wanderings through ruins, amid shrapnel and marching armies, will some day be told. But already Mr. Mozes is regarded as a hero of Jewish journalism. His dispatches… revealing the full plight of the million and a half Jews in Nazi-controlled Poland, are indeed journalism at its best.”
