Download PDF for this date

The thanks of the 300,000 American Jewish women in Hadassah, Women’s Zionist Organization of America, to the people of Norway “for their humanitarian services to Jewish refugee children” was extended here today to Premier Oscar Torp of Norway as he embarked to return to his country after a visit to the U.S.

Mrs. Abraham Tulin, national Youth Aliyah chairman of Hadassah, told the Premier, “the people of Norway who recently played host to over 200 of these young refugees from North African countries in transit to Israel, can have the deep satisfaction of knowing that the ill and impoverished children they housed, cured and educated are now well adjusted citizens of one of the youngest and most vital democracies in the world.”
