To assist South American Jewish communities in organizing for rescue, relief and rehabilitation of European Jewry, Dr. Arieh Tartakower, member of the executive and head of the relief committee of the World Jewish Congress, left today for an extended visit to Chile, Peru, Uruguay, Brazil and Argentina.

Dr. Tartakower’s visit is in response to an invitation from the South American Congress branches. He will assist the Jews in these countries to organize for immediate rescue and relief and post-war rehabilitation and will make an extensive report on the accomplishments of the World Jewish Congress in these fields. Dr. Tartakower is expected to return to the United States early in September.
