Archbishop of Canterbury Appeals to Satellite Populations to Assist Jews

A resolution expressing concern at the increased peril facing the Jews in German-occupied countries in central and southeastern Europe was submitted to the Council of Christians and Jews today by the Archbishop of Canterbury. The resolution appeals to the peoples of these countries not to assist in the persecution of Jews and to aid them to evade the Nazis.

The resolution also expresses gratitude at the abolition of anti-Jewish legislation in North Africa and the liberated section of Italy, and expresses confidence that similar action will be taken in territory liberated in the future.
