Download PDF for this date

The Jewish Labor Committee today announced a decision of its national executive committee to launch a campaign for $250,000 for the Jews in occupied Poland.

At a meeting of the committee held during the week-end at the MoAlpin Hotel it we decided, in addition to proclaiming a special drive for the Jews of Poland, to organize a “Ghetto Exhibition” in New York at which documents and pictures showing Nazi mistreatment of Jews are to be displayed. The committee also decided to approach other central Jewish organizations in America for the purpose of proclaiming April 19 – the first day of the revolt in the Warsaw ghetto – as a national Jewish Memorial Day.
