Bulgarian Zionists Join Fatherland Front; Pledge Fight Against Anti-semitism, Fascism

The United Zionist Organization of Bulgaria has joined the Jewish section of the Fatherland Front Party, it was announced here following the signing of an agreement between the organizations last night.

Under the agreement all Zionist groups within the UZO will have equal representation on the central committee of the Jewish section of the party, as well as on other Jewish communal institutions. Each of these bodies will continue to function independently and will receive the active support of the Fatherland Front, but all will cooperate in the Front’s basic program of fighting against all manifestations of anti-Semitism and fascism.

The United Zionist Organization will also receive equal representation on all special welfare commissions. The Fatherland Front pledged its efforts toward finding a solution to the economic problems facing the Jews, especially the liquidation of rehabilitation questions which still remain unsettled under the provisions of the Government’s first restitution law.
