Yiddish Broadcasts to Soviet Union

The French State Radio increased today the length of its daily Yiddish language programs beamed to the Soviet Union from 10 to 20 minutes daily. The programs are broadcast every evening on shortwave and, according to reports arriving from Russia, seem to be well heard throughout most of the European part of the Soviet Union. The programs are seen here as a “humanitarian” gesture. Some French observers describe it as a sign of “goodwill” towards the Jewish people without political considerations.
