American Jewish Congress Cables to the League

Download PDF for this date

The American Jewish Congress, following a special meeting held last night at its offices, sent a cable to the Council of the League of Nations expressing gratification with the appointment of a League Commissioner to deal with the problems of Jewish refugees in flight from oppression in Germany.

Expressing satisfaction with the appointment of the Commissioner as being in conformance with the resolution adopted by the Geneva World Jewish Conference, September 5th to 7th, and addressed to the League, the cable expresses the hope that the operation of the Commissioner outside the aegis of the League is a technicality which will not prevent him from receiving the official cooperation of the governments of the world.
