Download PDF for this date

Prompt action was taken today by the British Consulate in Warsaw on an application of a young Bialystok Jew for a Palestine visa, submitted directly to Captain Anthony Eden, British Lord Privy Seal, when his train stopped at Bialystok en route from Moscow to Warsaw.

Captain Eden promised the Jewish applicant that his visa would be granted. Upon reaching Warsaw, he turned over the application to the British Consulate for transmission to the Palestine government.
