Rabbinical Conference Nears of Suicide Pact of 93 Jewish Girls in Warsaw

A letter smuggled out of Nazi-occupied Poland reporting the death of 93 Jewish girls in Warsaw in a suicide pact when the Nazis rounded them up and brought them to a military brothel, was made public last night at the annual conference here of the Jewish Orthodox Rescue Committee, attended by hundreds of rabbis and American orthodox leaders. The girls, aged from 14 to 22, were members of the staff of the Beth Jacob religious schools.
