Several large Junker estates in Western Pomerania, which is now part of Poland, have been made available by the Polish Government for resettlement of Jews repatriated from the Soviet Union, it was learned today.

The estates, which are located in Cheszozna, near Starograd, have already been occupied by former merchants and artisans who received agricultural training in Russia. They are reported to be enthusiastic about their new life and have begun to organize Jewish cultural and communal activities.
