U.S. Government Asked to Facilitate Food Shipments to Starving Jews in Poland

The sending of food to the starving Jews in Nazi-occupied Poland and immediate reprisals for the Nazi atrocities against the civilian Jewish population there were demanded here today by thousands of Jews attending mass-meetings held in various parts of the city to observe the “Day of Polish Jewry” which marked the third anniversary of the Nazi invasion of Poland.

The thousands of Polish Jews massacred by the Nazis were eulogized at the meetings. Resolutions containing messages of hope and encouragement for the Jews in occupied Poland were adopted, together with an appeal to the governments of the United States and England to make possible the sending of food and medical aid to the Jews in the ghettos of Poland, in the same manner as this is being done for starving populations of other Axis-held countries.
