Download PDF for this date

An appeal to Israel’s President Izhak Ben-Zvi and Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion to arrange to have the remains of Vladimir Jabotinsky, founder of the Zionist-Revisionist movement, transferred to Israel was made by speakers at a meeting here last night by the Association of Jewish Journalists and the British section of the World Jewish Congress marking the 20th anniversary of his death. Mr. Jabotinsky’s last will asking that a Jewish Government should transfer his remains from New York to Israel was read at the meeting.

(In New York, the Zionist-Revisionists, the veterans of the Jewish Legion and members of the American Jewish War Veterans will participate in a pilgrimage to Jabotinsky’s grave next Sunday, the day of the anniversary of Jabotinsky’s death. The leader of the Zionist-Revisionist movement died suddenly 20 years ago in the B’rith Trumpeldor camp, near New York, at the age of 59.)
