Soviet Asked to Permit Jews in Russia to Participate in Upbuilding of Palestine

An appeal to the Soviet Government to allow the Jews of Russia to take part in the upbuilding of a Jewish Palestine was made here today at the opening of the Palestine-Russian exhibition sponsored by the Victory League,

Delivering the opening address, David Remez, Palestine labor leader, said that the Victory League aims at promoting mutual understanding between the Jews of Palestine and the people of the U.S.S.R., especially the Jews of Russia. “We are approaching the hour of victory and of the redemption of enslaved peoples. Also of the Jewish people. We ask from the democracies that they recognize our right to Palestine. From the Soviet Government we ask that it allow those of our brethren who are willing to assist us, to take part in the upbuilding of Palestine and in the strengthening of the roots which Hitler wanted to uproot,” Remez declared.
