Download PDF for this date

Dr. Ezequiel Zabotinsky, president of the pro-Peronist Organizacion Israelita Argentina, today reported that during his recent trip to the Jewish DP camp at Foehrenwald, Bavaria, he had handed out 60 of 100 visas he had been given for Jewish refugee families to be admitted to Argentina as immigrants.

Dr. Zabotinsky said that he had held up the remaining 40 in order to ask President Peron’s permission to distribute them among Jews not in Foehrenwald but who had returned to Europe from Israel and were now in Paris, Rome and other cities. He revealed that since he was granted the status of Consul when President Peron gave him the 100 visas to distribute, the immigrants who now have the documents need go through no more red tape before embarking for Argentina.
