Jewish Committee in Russia Lauds Allied Declaration

The Jewish Anti-Fascist Committee in Kuibyshev issued a statement today, signed by 46 prominent Jewish artists, writers and scientists, hailing the recent declaration by the Allied nations which condemned the atrocities which the Nazis have inflicted upon the Jews in all occupied countries and pledged retribution.

Stressing that the declaration is “a big event in the history of the Jewish people,” the statement points out that whereas previously the persecution of Jews aroused individual protests by representatives of civilized nations, today the governments of the mightiest and most progressive powers in the world have come to the defense of the Jewish people.
