Bergson Asks United Nations to Recognize “hebrew Nation” As Co-belligerent

The United Nations were appealed to tonight to recognize the so called “Hebrew nation” as a “sovereign entity” with the full right of a co-belligerent, in an address by Peter H. Bergson, head of the Hebrew Committee of National Liberation.

Mr. Bergson also asked that the Allies use poison gas against the Germans in retaliation for the gassing of hundreds of thousands of Jews in concentration camps in Poland. He attacked the British White Paper policy in Palestine and urged that refugee shelters be established there as havens for all Jews who can flee occupied Europe.
