Ort Will Raise 1,000,000 Pounds for Crimean Colonization


The “Ort”, an organization to promote agricultural undertakings among the Jews, intends, through the Jewish Reconstruction Fund now being formed in London, to raise a 1,000,000 pound loan for the purpose of participating in the Crimean colonization plan. This is a plan whereby the Soviet Government will give land in the southern part of Russia and the Crimea for the formation of an autonomous, Jewish state devoted to agriculture. It is understood in circles closely connected with Moscow that this loan is favored by the Soviet Government which is expected to guarantee it.
