Belgian and Dutch Consuls in Palestine Invite Jewish Refugees to Return Home

Promising good working conditions, the Belgian and Dutch consuls here today invited Jewish diamond workers and merchants of their respective countries, who fled here after the German invasion, to return home to continue their work.

However, the liberation of Antwerp, pre-war diamond industry center, does not necessarily endanger Palestine’s young diamond industry, well informed diamond industrialists here told the Jewish Telegraphic Agency today. They said the international diamond syndicate in London had decided to allot a full quota to Palestine.
