Download PDF for this date

A drive for 120,000,000 francs to cover the annual relief budget of Jewish organizations in France was decided upon today by a meeting of the Central Coordinating Relief Committee held in Marseille. Chief Rabbi Issaye Schwarts presided and delegates of relief bodies, including the Joint Distribution Committee, HIAS-ICA Emigration Association, ORT-OZE and others, were present.

Twenty-seven Jews are among 120 persons denaturalized, according to a new list published in the Official Journal.
