Jews in Belsen Camp Publish Own Newspaper; Deland Right to Immigrate to Palestine

A statement by the Jews interned in the BergenBelsen camp declaring that they “can no longer tolerate the grave injustice of being prevented from turning to an honest, productive life in Palestine,” is published in the first issue of a bi-weekly magazine issued by the internees, a-copy of which was received here today. The publication, which is entitled “Our Voice,” complains that while displaced persons of every nationality can return home, “only for us are the gates of our old and new homes closed.”

Twelve-thousand copies of High Holy Day prayerbooks, in newspaper format, are being distributed to Jews in camps and elsewhere in Europe to meet the acute shortage of such material, it was announced here today. They were propared by the Agudas Israel and the Keren Hatorah Organizations.
