Labor Committee Asks Soviet Envoy to Aid Arrested Leaders

Download PDF for this date

The Jewish Labor Committee asked Soviet Ambassador Georgi Zaroubin today to ascertain the fate of five Polish Jewish labor leaders arrested in late 1939 and early 1940 by the Soviet Secret Police after the Nazi-Soviet partition of Poland. The families of the five men now reside in Australia. They appealed to Jacob Pat, executive secretary of the committee during his recent visit to Australia, to help them discover whether the men are still alive and if so to help them rejoin their families.
