Jews Will Overcome Hitler and Will Help Build a Better World, Benes Says

The conviction that the Jews “will overcome the present calamity and will cooperate in the structure of a new and juster order within a permanent world peace,” was expressed here today by President Edouard Benes of Czechoslovakia in a message cabled to the Synagogue Council of America on the occasion of the Period of Mourning for the Jews of Europe proclaimed by the Council.

“No right-thinking person would and must allow himself to forget how many innocent people of the Jewish race have been destroyed by Nazi madmen and their accomplices,” the message said.
