Six more Jews were among the Nazi victims executed in Prague during the week-end, it was announced here today by the Czechoslovak Government-in-Exile.

A cable to the Jewish Agency office here reported that Moshe Shertok, chief of the political department of the Agency in Jerusalem, conferred today with Gen. Sergei Ingr. Czechoslovakian Minister of War, concerning the participation of Jewish soldiers in the Czech army in the Middle East.

The conference followed a ceremony “somewhere in Palestine” over the weekend at which all the Czech units were drawn up on parade and paid tribute to the hostages killed by the Nazis in reprisal for the death of Reinhard Heydrich. Among the soldiers were many Jews, a number of whom are veterans of the war in the Western Desert and participated in the defense of Tobruk when it was besieged last year.
