Peace Conference Will Solve Jewish Problems Created by Hitler, Senator Says

The solution of the problems created for the Jews by Hitler will be among the primary considerations at the forthcoming peace conference, Senator James M. Mead told a conference here yesterday, called by the American Jewish Congress, at which the launching of a $1,000,000 war relief campaign for Britain, Russia, China and other members of the Allied Nations was decided upon.

“Civilization owes a debt to the Jewish people which it must repay in terms of restitution to them of their equal rights and creation of opportunities for them to be completely rehabilitated along the lines of the New World order,” the Senator stated.

Tribute to the part the Jews are playing in winning the war was paid by Mayor LaGuardia at the conference. The Mayor called the Jewish population of the city one of its most loyal groups and said it would give a good account of itself in the war effort.
