The spirit and vitality of Europe’s Jewish displaced persons is nowhere better indicated than in their call for books as well as bread, it was reported at a press conference here today by Dr. M. Jacob Joslow, educational director of the Joint Distribution Committee in Germany and educational consultant for UNRRA during the past twelve months.

The Jewish DP’s all show an amazing desire for learning and education, he stated. “They themselves have agreed on a compulsory education policy which requires all youngsters under sixteen to attend school,” Joslow said.
