Download PDF for this date

A call to Jews to prepare their case in order to speak unitedly at any peace conference after the war was sounded today by Prof. Selig Brodetsky, head of the political department of the Jewish Agency’s London executive, addressing a meeting of the Daughters of Zion in Newcastle.

The end of the struggle will be the end of the powers of darkness in Central Europe, Prof. Brodetsky said, and a solution of the Jewish problem will be required, against which time the Jews must prepare themselves.

Pointing out that the situation of the Jews had changed for the worse since Versailles, he declared there were now 4,000,000 Jews in Russia who could be considered lost and the problem of the 4,000,000 in Central Europe must be faced in a fundamental way. This problem, which could not be solved by Jews alone, required a great act of statesmanship, he said.
