Blaustein Completes Visit to Poland; Lauds J. D. C. Aid to Polish Jews

The help being given Jews in Poland by the Joint Distribution Committee and ORT was praised here today by Jacob Blaustein, honorary president of the American Jewish Committee, who passed through Paris on completion of a two-week visit to Poland. He visited Poland at the invitation of the Polish Government.

Mr. Blaustein, who held a series of conferences with key Polish officials, including Foreign Minister Adam Rapacki, on Polish economic and social conditions, said that invaluable assistance was being given both to Jewish repatriates from the Soviet Union and the more settled Jewish community in Poland. He said he met with Jewish leadership throughout Poland, in his visits to Wroclaw, Legnica, Lodz, Cracow and Warsaw.
