Download PDF for this date

The mail from Soviet Russia received here today brought numerous letters to Palestine residents from Jewish relatives in the Ukraine stating that they had succeeded in escaping from the Nazis into the Soviet interior. The letters reveal that the refugees are safe and well.

The mail also included letters from Zionists interned in the Soviet Union, who were released under the recent Russo-Polish pact.
