Central Committee of Jews in Poland Moves Headquarters from Lublin to Warsaw

The Central Committee of the Jews of Poland, which is headed by the noted Zionist leader Dr. Emil Sommerstein, will shortly transfer its headquarters to Warsaw, it was announced today. The committee has been functioning in Lublin for several months.

Two Jewish partisan leaders, veterans of the battle of the Warsaw ghetto, arrived here this week to discuss establishment of political and social organizations for the surviving Jews in Poland. They are prof. M. Sachs and Sholem Grajek, who were the representatives of the Poale Zion party on the underground Jewish National Committee.

In addition to participating in the uprising of the Warsaw Jews, the two men, who were leaders of their party in the five years of German occupation, played an important role in organizing resistance in other ghettos.
