Ort Leader Arrives; Says Jewish Situation in Poland Grave

Download PDF for this date

B. Aisurovitch, prominent leader of the Ort, and actively identified with Jewish communal work in Eastern Europe, has arrived in this country.

Mr. Aisurovitch has come to the United States in the interest of the People’s Ort Federation of this country and will undertake the work in connection with the Landmanschaften.

He comes to this country directly from Poland, and in a statement issued upon his arrival described the situation in that country as exceedingly grave for the Jewish population. The Jewish Community is on the steady decline in Poland. And the tragedy of it is that the Jews have nowhere to turn for help. The government appears to be oblivious to the situation as if the Jews were not part of Polish citizenry.
