Hias-ica Helped over 1,900 Refugees Emigrate in First Quarter of Year

More than 1,900 Jewish refugees in France, Belgium, the Netherlands and other countries of refuge were aided by the HIAS-ICA Emigration Association to emigrate to various overseas lands in the first three months of the year, a board of director’s meeting was told today by managing directors Edouard Oungre and Dr. James Bernstein. (The J.D.C. contributed more than half of the HIAS-ICA transportation fund.)

The board was informed that HIAS-ICA had helped a total of 34,000 refugees to emigrate from Central Europe since the advent of Hitlerism in Germany.
