Download PDF for this date

Veterans of World War II will participate in a march on Washington on Sunday, July 14, to protest Britain’s “shameful war against the Jewish community of Palestine,” it was announced by the Jewish War Veterans of the United States, which is sponsoring the march.

In Washington the delegation from New York will be joined by other veterans from various parts of the country, and all will participate in a mass meeting which will demand that 100,000 displaced Jews be admitted. On Monday, July 15, separate veterans’ delegations will call on President Truman, the State Department and the British Embassy.
