Jewish Labor Organ Asks Russia to Permit Emigration of Jews to Palestine

The demand that the Soviet Government permit the emigration to Palestine of Polish Jews released from exile under the Russo-Polish agreement of last week is advanced today in the Davar, organ of the Histadruth, the largest daily newspaper in Palestine.

Commenting on the agreement, the Davar states that the pact is to be considered as of great importance to European Jewry, especially because thousands of Polish Jews will, under its provisions, be released from Soviet detention. “The Soviets must also give the released Jews the freedom to choose their living places, including Palestine, in order to be able to build anew their destroyed lives,” the Palestine labor organ writes.
