Jewish Collective Farms of Crimea Beginning to Revive; Were Razed by Germans

The flourising collective farms of the Crimea, which were levelled to the ground by the Germans and many of the residents murdered, are beginning to revive, according to a report made public here today.

It reveals that already four farms – New Dawn, Sverdlov, Voroshilov and Polotov – have resumed operation. Before the Nazi invasion these four were among the best in the Soviet Union, and garnered many prizes at all-Union agricultural exhabits. Electric power has been restored and cattle and seed have been obtained with credits furnished by the government.
