Download PDF for this date

Posters signed by the Irgun Zvai Leumi, Jewish resistance group in Palestine, and calling on the Czechoslovak people to give moral support to the one-day general strike in Palestine, were discovered yesterday on buildings throughout Prague.

The placards charged that Britain was oppressing small nations in Nazi-fashion and lauded Czechoslovakia, the United States and the Soviet Union. Police are searching for the persons who put up the posters.
