800 Polish Jews Fleeing Daily; Most Enter Czechoslovakia Causing Relief Problem

About 800 Jews are fleeing from Poland daily and the great majority of them are crossing into Czechoslovakia as the first step on the road to Palestine.

This has created a tremendous problem for the Jewish organizations in this country which are overwhelmed by the need to house, feed and otherwise assist the refugees. As a result the Council of Jewish Communities in Bohemia and Moravia today issued an appeal to the Jewish communities of the world to send aid here immediately.
