Download PDF for this date

Five members of the Hechalutz were killed, and three gravely injured, when one of Hitler’s robot bombs struck a Hechaluts building somewhere in southern England, it was learned today. Several other persons in the building, which housed young refugees receiving agricultural training, were slightly injured. The dead Chalutzim, two of whom were girls, came to England from Germany and Austria.
