Leon Blum, Socialist leader and former Premier of France, who was liberated from Nazi imprisonment after the defeat of Germany, today cabled to the Histadruth, the Palestine Federation of Labor, that he intends to visit Palestine at the first opportunity.

Expressing thanks for the congratulatory message sent to him by the Histadrath on the occasion of his liberation, Blum emphasized in his cable that he is aware of Jewish labor’s achievements in Palestine and that he will, in the future, help in the upbuilding of Palestine as he did in the past.
