Download PDF for this date

A special mission to investigate the TB cases among the Jewish displaced persons at Foehrenwald Camp, near Munich, will be sent by the World OSE Union, it was announced here today by Abel Shaban, chairman of the world executive of the organization.

Addressing a meeting here, Mr. Shaban said that the reason for sending the OSE mission to Germany is to establish what help can be given on the spot to the sick Jewish DP’s and how many of them should be taken out from Germany to Santeria in other countries. There are now about 400 TB cases among the Jews in Foehrenwald, Mr. Shaban stated.
