Download PDF for this date

Secretaries of the six largest Italian communities and of the national Union of Italian Jewish Communities made plans at a meeting here to aid Italian Jewish victims of Nazism, in the expected enactment by the Italian Government of a restitution law for the distribution of $10, 000, 000, paid by West Germany to Italy for such purposes.

The Jewish officials also discussed the continuation of a fund-raising campaign for the Algerian Jewish refugees in France. The meeting was one of a series aimed at improvement and modernization of services by the Jewish communities.
