International Red Cross Praised for Its Efforts in Behalf of Hungarian Jews

The Manchester Guardian, one of England’s leading newspapers, in an article today pays high tribute to the International Red Cross for dealing effectively with the problem of rescuing Jews from Hungary. In contrast, it asks what the War Refugee Board and other official and unofficial rescue organizations are doing in the matter of rescue.

The article comments on the joint Anglo-American acceptance of Hungary’s offer to permit the emigration of Jews to Palestine and to neutral countries, and urges in particular that Switzerland be given every assistance in accepting more refugees.
