Jewish Section in the Palais Mondial

August 15, 1923
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The last bulletin of the Committee of Jewish Delegations in Paris contains a note on the Palais Mondial in Brussels and its Jewish section. In 1920 soon after the declaration of peace, the Palais Mondial was dedicated as a memorial to human labour and intellect, and as a symbol of peace and solidarity between nations. A special Jewish section was opened, consisting of a library, a museum and a hall for bibliopgraph. The Jewish section contains a rich collection of documents pertaining to Jewish history from the Biblical period to the present day. There is a particularly large collection of documents dealing with the Zionist movement. The Jewish University in Jerusalem is given special prominence.

The distribution of the Jews throughout the world is shown in a diagram. There is a special department for material relating to anti-Semitism, containing both anti-Semitic attacks and apologia.
