Wounded Palestinian Jewish War Prisoners, Repatriated from Germany, Reach Home

Twenty-five Palestinian Jewish soldiers who were recently repatriated to England from a German prison camp arrived here last night. Interviewed at the military camp at Sarafand, where they are temporarily quartered, the repatriates, all of whom are wounded, said that the Germans openly admit that they have lost the war.

The Red Mogen David announced today that it is sending an average of 3,000 packages per month to wounded and ill Jewish soldiers of all Allied forces stationed in the Middle East. The organization also has a country-wide network of offices where families of servicemen can receive medical care and clothing.

Palestine soldiers serving in North Africa have organized Jewish schools in Tripoli and Libya to serve about 4,000 Jewish children who have been without educational facilities for several years, it is reported by a Palestine journalist now serving with the British forces.
