A group of 361 Jewish refugees, most of them natives of Poland, Belgium and Holland, today left for Palestine. The group includes 170 youngsters who arrived recently from the Bergen-Belsen camp in Germany.

Information reaching the ORT office here today from Germany reveals that during the Jews liberated from the Nasi camp at Buchenwald are a number of stadents end instructors from the ORT schools. They include Jacques Bramson, an engineer, who is the son of the late Dr. Leon Bramson, former Ort president.
