Refugees Returning to Poland from Palestine Will Improve Polish-jewish Relations

Polish refugees now in Palestine will, on their return to Poland after the war, help to bring about better relations between Poles and Jews as a result of the “pleasant reminiscences” they will have, it was forecast here today at a press conference by Henryk Strassburger, new Polish Minister for the Middle East. Mr. Strassburger had high praise for Jewish achievements in Palestine, which, he said, was being developed with an “American tempo.”

While here, Mr. Strassburger received a delegation of the Representation of Polish Jewry with whom he discussed ways and means of saving the Polish Jews in occupied Europe. He would not discuss, however, the evacuation of Polish-Jewish refugees now in Russia, stating that it was impossible to make plans at the present time.
