Only Unlimited Immigration into Palestine Can Save Europe’s Jews, Says Sen. Thomas

Although President Roosevelt’s War Refugee Board has succeeded in rescuing some Jews from German-held territories, it will be impossible to save the bulk of Europe’s Jews until Palestine is thrown open to unlimited Jewish immigration, it was stated here last night by Sen. Elbert Thomas of Utah addressing a rally at Carnegie Hall sponsored by the Emergency Committee to Save the Jewish people. Other speakers included Dean Alfange, co-chairman of the Committee and William Bennet, Republican leader.

A memorial meeting to honor the Jews who fell fighting the Germans in the Warsaw Ghetto was held at Hunter College auditorium last night under the auspices of the Jewish Labor Committee. A tableau depicting the revolt was presented.
