Broader Emigration Aid Urged by Hias Parley

Baltic leaders of the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society held their first meeting today since the incorporation of Wilno into Lithuania.

After hearing a report on Polish Jewry’s catastrophe, delivered by Mendel Mozes, J.T.A. correspondent acting in his capacity as a member of the Polish HIAS presidency, the conference adopted a resolution urging the HIAS-ICA Emigration Association to provide wider emigration facilities. In other resolutions the conference asked that some immigration permits be reserved for the most urgent cases, urged establishment of a large emigration fund and suggested intervention with the American Government to increase the Polish quota since emigration from Polish areas now held by the Soviet Union is impossible.
