Lucien Intervenes in Behalf of Russian Jewish Refugees

Download PDF for this date

Lucien Wolf, Secretary of the Joint Foreign Committee of the Jewish Board of Deputies of England and the Anglo-Jewish Association, arrived here to intervene with the Government regarding Ukrainian refugees.

The Roumanian Government promised Mr. Wolf to cease further evacuations of Russian Jewish refugees in view of the inability of the refugees to proceed to the United States owing to the exhaustion of the Russian quota. The Government further promised Mr. Wolf to accord transportation facilities to those refugees who desire to leave the country and cannot obtain sufficient support from the Jewish organizations.

M. Duca, Minister for Foreign Affairs, gave a luncheon in honor of Mr. Wolf which was attended by many notables.
