Download PDF for this date

Directors Giterman and Neustadt of the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee were reported to have left for Paris today to participate in a conference of the Joint Distribution Committee with representatives of the British Board of Jewish Deputies.

The Paris conference of the two bodies, it is understood here, will be for the purpose of discussing plans to aid Polish Jewry.

Plans are on foot to inaugurate large-scale constructive help for the more than 3,000,000 Jews of Poland, a majority of whom are in desperate straits.

Neville Laski, president of the Jewish Deputies board, is understood to have conferred in Paris with Dr. Bernhard Kahan, chief European director of the Joint Distribution Committee, on the Polish Jewish relief problem.

The conference will be continued between them and the American directors of the J.D.C. on the occasion of Laski’s and Kahan’s forthcoming visit to New York, scheduled for the latter part of December.
