Download PDF for this date

The Yugoslav embassy today informed a visiting delegation of rabbis that the Belgrade Government had agreed to restore Jewish cemeteries in that country which had been destroyed by the Nazis during the Second World War, The delegation, representing the World Center of European Rabbis, was requested by the embassy to supply a list of such cemeteries.

The rabbinical organization last year called upon the embassies of the various East European countries with a similar request and was informed at that time that the appeal would be passed on to the governments concerned.
