Polish Representatives Tour Dp Camps in Italy to Increase Repatriation Flow

Download PDF for this date

Representatives of the Polish Consulate in Italy are touring the DP camps in an attempt to get refugees from Poland to return to their native land. The movement toward repatriation to Poland has never been very large in the camps, but there are a few displaced Jews who have registered with the consulate to return.

A new central committee of the Jewish Refugee Organization of Italy, consisting of 15 members, has been elected, it was revealed here today. The body is headed by Dr. Leon Bernstein. The election was necessitated by the emigration to Israel of a number of members of the old committee.
