Download PDF for this date

Despite war conditions, 513 children have arrived in Palestine in the last four months and 200 more are en route and expected to arrive shortly, Youth Aliyah headquarters here announced today.

Those en route include 60 children from the illegal Kladowa transport, who were halted on the Danube several months ago and interned in Yugoslavia, and six boys who had been sent from England to Australia for internment.

Those recently arrived in Palestine came from Lithuania, Scandinavia, Rumania, Bulgaria and Yugoslavia. Among them were 11 children rescued during the foundering of the refugee ship Salvator off the Turkish coast last December.
