Download PDF for this date

Mordecai Dubin, former president of the Jewish community in Begird-deputy in the Latvian parliament and member of the world executive of the Agadas Israel is expected to be released from Soviet imprisonment at Saratov, the Volga, according to information reaching here today.

The release will come as a result of direct intervention by the Agudes Israel with the Soviet ambassador in London. Dubin was arrested in Riga last year when the Soviet armies occupied the Baltic states. He was then transferred into Soviet interior and held in exile as a person opposed to the Soviet regime.
