Download PDF for this date

A group of J.D.C. relief workers left today for the Buchenwald Camp in Germany to prepare 300 Jewish children there for transportation to Switzerland. The group was headed by Irene Lowy.

(One hundred and fifty-six Jewish children who endured the horrors of various German concentration camps, and whose parents and close relatives are either dead or missing, are enroute to Palestine. Dr. Joseph C. Hyman, executive vice-chairman of the Joint Distribution Committee, said today on the basis of a cable received from the J.D.C.,’s Lisbon offices.)
