Thirty thousand Jews live in the Ural region of the Soviet Union, according to a report from Warsaw received here today. The report came from a Polish newspaperman who had just visited the Urals, a vast area stretching to the Arctic Circle.

According to the report, the Jews in the region comprise nearly one per cent of the total population. The report stated that 250 Jews in the Urals serve in administrative posts, most of them as chief engineers or directors of various enterprises.
