Download PDF for this date

The horrors at Buchenwald constitute a moral challenge to the world to sec that the survivors are enabled to live normal lives and that the nations of the world take steps to prevent repetition of such atrocities, Samuel S. Silverman, Labor M. P., who has just returned from a visit to Buchenwald, told the Jewish Telegraphi Agency today.

Silverman, who was part of a ten-man Parliamentary delegation, said that while at the camp he heard the story of the killing of 3,500,000 persons at Oswiecim from Benedict Kautsky, son of the former leader of the Austrian Socialist Party. Kautsky said that ninety percent of those murdered were Jews.

Meanwhile, it is reported here today from Stuttgart that none of the 100 Jewish families who formerly lived there remain and that of 130 families of "mixed marriages" only 15 are left.
