Jews in Jerusalem Stop Work for Two Hours to Pray for Nazi Victims

The Jews in the city of Jerusalem today stopped work for two hours and marched in a procession to the tomb of the Prophet Zacharich, on the Mount of Olives, to offer prayers for the Jewish victims of Nazi cruelties. The demonstration was intended as an appeal from the Holy City to the people of the world to intervene to stop the Nazi massacres of Jews in Europe.

A message cabled by the Jewish Anti-Fascist Committee in Russia was received here today expressing the hope that “Palestine Jewry will have a full share in the forthcoming victory.” The message was addressed to the Palestine Victory League.
