Unrra Asked to Allow Sending of More Jewish Relief Workers to Germany

Download PDF for this date

The United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Administration has been asked by the newly-formed “Committee to Aid the Jews of Germany” to allow a large number of Jewish relief workers to enter Germany to assist Jews in camps and elsewhere.

The committee also appealed to the British Foreign Office to facilitate the sending of aid to the Jews of Germany. The new group, which was formed under the auspices of the Board of Deputies of British Jews, consists of the Anglo-Jewish Association, the Association of Refugees, the British sections of the World Jewish Congress and the Agudas Israel, the Chief Rabbi’s Emergency Council, the Federation of Jewish Relief Organizations and the British section of the New Zionist Organization.
