Canada Will Be Asked to Widen Existing Immigration Regulations for Jews

Download PDF for this date

The Canadian Government will soon be asked to widen existing immigration regulations on behalf of Jews, according to Saul Hayes, executive director of the Canadian Jewish Congress, who was the guest speaker at the 29th annual meeting of the Jewish Immigrant Aid Society of Canada. Although Canadian Jewry “intended in no way to sidetrack immigrants from Israel, it was making Jewish immigration to Canada possible as far as regulations permitted,” Hayes said.

Mandel Kraicer, recently returned from Germany, charged that the reemergence of Nazism in that country made it neither desirable nor possible for Jews to remain there. He said there were at present 80,000 Jewish DP’s in Germany and Austria. Kraicer asserted that “the black shirts are reappearing in ever larger numbers and openly and ever more brazenly proclaiming their Hitlerism.” He added that “education in Germany was entirely in Nazi hands and no attempt has been made to wrest this important task from them.”
