Seek to Open Polish Route for Ukraine Emigrants

February 26, 1923

The Jewish Telegraphic Agency (J.C.B.) will be glad to answer inquiries for further information about any of the news items contained in this Bulletin.

Negotiations are being conducted by the Charkov government with Poland with a view to making it possible for Ukrainian emigrants to pass through the Ukrainian-Polish frontier. At present, all emigrants from the Ukraine are forced to go on the long route via Moscow and Latvia.

Many emigrants have fallen victims of swindling agents who promise to “steal” them safely over the Polish frontier, but who leave them hopelessly stranded on the frontier.

Americans are urged by Jewish relief agencies, pending the negotiations for the opening of the Polish route to all emigrants, not to encourage their emigrant friends to attempt to pass illegally by the Polish route.
