An Concludes Agreement with Unrra on Establishing Workshops for Displaced Jews

An agreement with UNRRA with regard to the establishment of CRT workshops in the camps for displaced persons both in the American and the British Zones was signed today by Dr. David Lvovitch, vice president of the (##) CRT Union, who spent several weeks in Germany visiting the camps. Letters were arranged with the Joint Distribution Committee and the British Jewish Committee for relief Abroad regarding cooperation in the American and British zones respectively.

The training will include vocational as well as agricultural activities. Sewing machines, tools, raw materials and farm implements will be sent to the camps from the USA and England for use by Jewish artisans among the displaced persons and in CRT training courses and workshops. Experienced instructors will be sent from the USA, France and Switzerland, and a number of instructers will be selected from among the displaced persons.
