Thousands of Jews attended the funeral of Matias Stoliar, editor and publisher of the Yiddische Zeitung, largest Jewish daily newspaper in South America. The crowds began to gather in front of the newspaper building from where the funeral procession started.

Eulogies at the grave were delivered by Dr. Moises Slinin, president of the Jewish Community; Dr. Ricardo Dubrovsky, president of the DAIA, central representative body of Argentine Jewry; Yaacov Tzur, Israel’s Minister in Buenos Aires; Rabbi Fink, leader of the Central Zionist Council of Argentina; Mark Regalsky, noted Jewish writer; and others. A representative of the United Press placed a wreath on the grave, while numerous other Jewish and non-Jewish institutions sent messages of sympathy to the family.
