Download PDF for this date

Polish Jews who suffered from Nazi atrocities or whose property was looted by the Nazis during their occupation of Poland will seek ways and means to secure full compensation, it was announced here today. The announcement said that the question will be taken up at a world-wide conference of Polish Jews which is scheduled to take place next year. Preparations for such a conference are now going on in various Jewish centers.

The conference will attempt to reunite the Polish Jews now scattered throughout the world and create a representative body for them. It will discuss the establishment of a spiritual center similar to the Leo Baeck institute established for German Jews. The organization committee of the conference includes leaders of Polish Jewry now in the United States, Israel, Argentina and other countries, the announcement said.
