Peron Instructs Authorities to Permit Yiddish Speeches at Meetings

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

President Juan Peron this week-end instructed Argentine Interior Minister Angel Borlenghi to permit speakers at Jewish meetings in this country to address the audience in Yiddish if the speakers cannot speak Spanish. The instructions followed a visit by Dr. Henry Shoshkes, HIAS representative, to the President, during which he complained that he and other speakers were prevented from addressing a meeting here last week-end because they could not speak Spanish.
