American Jewish Committee Publishes Study on Jewish Migrations

Download PDF for this date

Planned mass resettlement on an agrarian-industrial basis is the major problem of Jewish post-war reconstruction, in the opinion of Prof. Eugene M. Kulischer, well-known authority on population and migration problems. This is the conclusion at which he arrives in “Jewsh Migrations,” a work published today by the Research Institute on Peace and Post-War Problems of the American Jewish Committee.

The study on Jewish migrations reviews Jewish migrations in former times and their role in the preservation of the Jewish Community. Max Gottschalk, director of the Institute, points out in the preface, that this volume is a reply to the pessimists who do not believe in a better future for the Jews after this war and that it also demonstrates to what considerable degree “the immigrant is an asset to the country which welcomes him.”
