U.S. and European Groups to Meet on Fate of East European Jewry

Download PDF for this date

The Anglo-Jewish Association has invited the American Jewish Committee and the Alliance Israelite Universelle of France to meet in a joint conference on the question of the Jews of Eastern Europe. This was revealed today in a report of the AJA which also disclosed that the AJA had been in contact with the Spanish Embassy in behalf of a group of Jews of Spanish nationality living in Greece.

These Jews can make material claims against Germany for damage resulting from Nazi action only through the Spanish Government. The AJA was told that the Spanish Government has a restitution agreement with Bonn and “will investigate” the claims of the Spanish Jews in Greece.

On the basis of private information, the report indicated concern for the well-being of Jews in North Africa. On the question of Jews in Egypt, it said that the communities of Cairo and Alexandria are functioning and Egyptian Jews are now suffering only the same disabilities of all non-Moslems in the country.
