Schwarizbart Asks for “peace and Bread” for Jews in Post-war Europe

Jews in Europe have the same right to cherish hopes for “Peace and bread” in a post-war world as the other oppressed nations, declared Ignacy Schwartsbart, Jewish member of the Polish National Council, in a speech today before a victory campaign meeting of the North London Jewish National Fund.

Enforced evacuation, he maintained, will not answer the demands of European Jews for equal rights and freedom. Palestine will not be built up by forced evacuation of Jews from other countries, he said, but as a result of Jewish faith in a Jewish National Home.
