World Jewish Congress Appeals to Stalin to Rescue Remnants of European Jews

An appeal to Marshal Josef Stalin of Russia was cabled yesterday by the World Jewish Congress, “as spokesmen of world Jewry,” asking him to “instruct all commanders in the field of operations to use any means of psyche logical or military warfare in rescuing any remnants of European Jewry” that they may discover in their military advances in Germany. The cable, signed by Dr. Stephen S. Wise and Dr. Nahum Goldmann, also asked for information leading to an estimation of the number of Jews that Russia may have rescued already.
