Download PDF for this date

A conference to discuss ways and means of rescuing Jewish and anti-Nazi refugees stranded in unoccupied France and the North African colonies will meet here tomorrow, Saturday, under the auspices of the Emergency Refugee Conference.

Following reports on the latest developments abroad and the refugee situation in general the Conference will hold panel discussions on relief, transportation, government regulations, diplomatic protection and asylum. The report on transportation, which looms as one of the greatest obstacles to refugee immigration, will be delivered by Isaac Asofsky of the HIAS.
