Census of Jews in Yugoslavia Planned; Communities Hold Conference

A project designed to obtain accurate information on all Jews living in Yugoslavia, regardless of whether or not they are members of Jewish communities; was launched here tonight at the closing session of the seventh national conference of the Federation of Jewish Communities in Yugoslavia.

The Federation recently published a 400 page volume on the history and current status of Yugoslav Jewry. The literary section included stories and articles by some 20 Yugoslav Jewish writers and the Minister of Israel contributed an article on his country. An English summary of the volume is under preparation.
