Download PDF for this date

A representative of the Joint Distribution Committee left here today for Paris to discuss with European headquarters of the JDC the problems arising from the closing of the Czech-Polish border to Jews leaving Poland.

After several weeks’ stay in Czechoslovakia, 500 Jewish children from Poland left a transient camp today in a special train for Paris, where they will be taken care of by institutions financed by the Joint Distribution Committee.
