A contribution of $2,000 collected by the Jewish Committee for Aid to Russia and other Democratic Countries, of Montevideo, Uruguay, has just been received by the Soviet Embassy here, it was announced today.

In a letter accompanying the contribution, Jaime Galperin, President of the Uruguayan Committee, writes: “The Jewish people of Uruguay, regardless of class, with understanding and a high spirit of sacrifice have responded to the call of the Jewish people of the Soviet Union who are defending the most sublime ideals of liberty and of human civilization. The Jews of Uruguay, who cannot carry arms at the side of the heroic soldiers of Russia to halt the invasion of the Nazi barbarians, are ready to make stern sacrifices to send them all possible help.” The contribution will be placed at the disposal of the Soviet Red Cross, embassy officials stated.
