Casualty Lists Show Large Proportion of Jews in Canadian Forces

Jewish casualties in the Royal Canadian Air Force are sixty per cent above the percentage of Jews in Canada, it was disclosed today by Lieut. Gurston Allen, head of the War Effort Committee of the Canadian Jewish Congress.

Initiating a recruiting campaign among Jews in Canada, Lieut. Allen released a long list of Canadian Jewish war casualties in the RCAF and stated that it indicated that an equally large number of Jews were enrolled in the other branches of the Dominion’s fighting forces.
