43 Jewish Refugees Arrive Here on Chartered Flight

Download PDF for this date

Forty-three Jewish refugees from the Middle East, Poland, Czechoslovakia and other Eastern European countries arrived at Kennedy Airport Monday in a chartered flight arranged by the United Hias Service. Relatives met many of the men, women and children at the airport, in some cases after years of separation.

The new arrivals will be resettled with the help of local cooperating agencies in New York City and a dozen other communities.
