Argentine Foreign Minister Says Government Preparing to Admit 1,000 Jewish Children

Admittance of 1,000 orphaned Jewish children from Europe has been approved by the Argentine Government, and arrangements for their entry will be announced soon, Foreign Minister Juan Bramuglia has informed the DAIA, central body of Argentine Jewry.

Dr. Moise Goldmann, President of the DAIA, today called on Home Secretary Angel Borlenghi to discuss various anti-Semitic manifestations, including distribution of anti-Jewish propaganda in public places, discrimination against Jewish internes and physicians on the staff of municipal hospitals and the forced transfer of Jewish teachers in the province of Santa Fe, which has compelled many to quit their jobs.

Borlenghi told Dr. Goldmann that the matters about which he complained have been discussed with President Juan Peron and the situation “will be clarified” within a few days.
