Demand for Jewish Representation on War Crimes Commission Made in House

A demand for official Jewish representation on the United Nations War Crimes Commission was made yesterday by Rep. Thomas J. Lane, Mass. Democrat, speaking on the floor of the House.

Rep. Lane also urged that the United Nations issue a declaration pledging punishment of war crimes against Jews in Axis countries. He criticized the removal of Herbert C. Pell as American representative on the War Crimes Commission.
