Two-day Jewish Conference in Poland Maps Plans for Revival of Cultural Activities

A two-day Jewish cultural conference – the first since the liberation of Poland – has concluded in Wroclaw, (Breslau) after mapping plans to establish a Jewish Society for Culture and Art which will organize cultural activities among Jews in various cities in Lower Silesia, the former German territory which is now a part of Poland.

The conference, which was attended by 430 delegates from 38 towns in Lower Silesia, discussed the possibility of establishing Jewish libraries, cultural clubs, literary circles and singing groups in cities where there are a considerable number of Jews. The gathering was greeted by representatives of the municipality and of Polish cultural organizations. It also received greetings from the Jewish Anti-Fascist Committee in Moscow and Jewish cultural organizations in New York.
