The Council of Jewish Communities of Bohemia and Morvia has raised a volunteer labor brigade to rebury the remains of 20,000 Jews who died in the Theresienstadt concentration camp, it was reported today. The ashes and bodies in mass graves at the death camp represent only a portion of the Jewish dead, the remainder having been cremated and their ashes tossed into the Ohre River.
