Download PDF for this date

The large library of the former rabbinical seminary at Breslau, which was recovered by the Allied authorities at the end of World War II, arrived today in Switzerland.

The greater part of the library will be incorporated in the OSE library located here. Periodicals will be sent to the Zurich Jewish community and extra copies of volumes will be sent to the Basle Jewish community.
