Polish Jewish Refugees Reaching Palestine from Wilno

Download PDF for this date

The first 40 of a large number of Polish Jewish refugees coming here from Wilno, Lithuania, arrived in Palestine on Friday, and 210 more are expected this week. The first group, including the former presidents of the Warsaw and Gracow Zionist organizations, were met at Ras-el-Nakura by Eliahu Dobkin, head of the Jewish Agency’s immigration department.

(The United Palestine Appeal has announced in New York that arrangements have been made for transportation of 995 refugees from Wilno to Palestine via Soviet Russia and the Far East.)
