Polish and Palestine Officials Confer on Resumption of Trade Between Two Countries

Download PDF for this date

Ludwig Grossfeld, Polish Vice-Minister for Foreign Trade, and other high officials today conferred with Dr. Benjamin Grosskopf, head of its Palestine Chamber of Commerce on resumption of trade between the two countries.

It was decided that commercial relations will be reestablished on a reciprocal basis. A large volume of trade is expected. The Palestinians are interested in wooden boxed for shipping citrus fruits, coal, coke and ceramics. Poland wants, among other things, citrus fruits and their by-products and artificial teeth.

A group of 50 Jewish children, mostly orphans, were flown yesterday to the port of Gdynia on route to Britain. They were hidden with non-Jewish families during the Nazi occupation and were recently found by a representative of the British Chief Rabbis’ Religious Emergency Council.
