A resolution stating that the Jews is Biro Bidjan, autonomous Jewish district in Far Eastern Russia, are ready to go to the Russo-German front to fight the invading Nazi armies was adopted last night at a mass meeting held in a Biro-Bidjan sewing factory.

“We will never allow the enemy to conquer our country,” the resolution reads. “The cooperation of all the peoples of the Soviet Union will lead to the defeat of Hitler’s armies. If necessary, we will go to the front to defend our honor and freedom to the last drop of blood.”
