French National Radio Opens Yiddish-language Broadcasts to Eastern Europe

The State-owned French National Radio began a series of Yiddish language broadcasts yesterday beamed to Eastern Europe which are expected to contain material critical of anti-Semitic policies in Poland and Soviet Russia. The programs are written and edited by Jewish journalists who are not affiliated with the national radio but work in an independent capacity. This will preserve the Government’s neutral policy. Sources here said that Communist authorities are not likely to interfere with reception because of the close relations France has with Poland and the USSR.
