Day of Protest Against Allies’ Indifference to Jewish Tragedy Proclaimed in Palestine

Work will be stopped, stores will be closed and traffic will be suspended by Jews in Palestine on June 14 in accordance with a decision adopted today by the Jewish National Council of Palestine to proclaim that day “a day of solidarity with the heroic stand taken by the Jews in the Warsaw ghetto as well as an expression of protest on the part of the Palestine Jews against the indifference of the Allied Nations to the unprecedented Jewish tragedy.”

Every Jewish adult in Palestine will sign a petition on that day which will be sent to the Allied Nations appealing for urgent aid for the Jews in Nazi-held countries. Mass-meetings will be held throughout the country. Even the Jewish bus lines running between one city and another and constituting the major transportation system in the country will not run after twelve noon.
