Jewish Farmers in Lower Silesia Will Receive Assistance in Harvesting Bumper Crop

The Central Committee of Wroclaw, in lower Silesia, where the majority of Polish Jews are concentrated, decided at a special meeting called by all Jewish cooperatives in the region to extend every possible assistance to Jewish farmers who complained of a lack of hands to harvest the bumper crop in Niemcha, Kidlin and Pieschitze.

It was reported here this week that numerous Jewish cooperatives, particularly those for tailors and shoemakers, have recently opened small shops in a number of small towns and villages where they have been plying their trades successfully. Most of the customers who bring their garments and shoes to the Jewish craftsmen for repairs are farmers and factory workers.
