Download PDF for this date

A group of Polish Jews who have been in the Soviet Union since shortly after the outbreak of the war arrived here this week, as a result of a new repatriation agreement between the Polish and the Soviet Governments.

It is expected that about 2,000 Polish Jews will return to Poland under this agreement within the next three months. The majority of them have been in Soviet prisons on charges of violating Soviet laws.
