The Jews of Europe hold first priority for swift restoration to their rightful place as first class citizens of a free world and must be accorded this recognition by the United Nations before homelessness, starvation and anti-Semitism further decimate their ranks, Lt. Col. Judah Nadich, former adviser on Jewish affairs to General Eisenhower, declared here today before 200 delegates from 53 Massachusetts communities who met at the Sheraton Hotel at a state-wide conference of the United Jewish Appeal.

The 200 delegates pledged their communities to give “unreserved support” to the UJA $100,000,000 campaign. Among those addressing the conference was Renzo Levi of Rome, president of the Jewish Relief Organization of Italy; Leo Hermann of Jerusalem, international secretary of the Palestine Foundation Fund, who recently arrived in this country following an extended tour through Europe and the Middle East; and Milton Susan, Pittsburgh attorney, who reported to the delegates on conditions in Dachau concentration camp when it was liberated by Allied troops.
