Truman Asked to Protest to Britain Against Arrest of Jews in Belsen Camp

President Truman was urged yesterday by the American League for a Free Palestine to protest against the arrest of leaders of displaced Jews in the Bergen-Belsen camp by British military authorities.

In a telegram to the President, the League drew his attention to the report by the Jewish Telegraphic Agency of the arrest of leaders of the Central Jewish Committee in Bergen-Belson on Nov.16 and of the desecration by British military police of the Zionist flag. “If this is liberation, what was Nazism?” the telegrams asked.
