Polish Jewish leaders were cheered today by a promise that American Jews, through the Joint Distribution Committee would continue and expand their aid to the stricken Jews of Poland.

Dr. Bernhard Kahn, European director of the Committee, told leading representatives of the Polish Jews at a special conference that “the American Joint Distribution Committee and entire American Jewry are deeply distressed over the Polish Jews’ plight, as I convinced myself during my American visit six weeks ago.”

He made the statement after listening to speakers declare that all activities of existing Jewish organizations in Poland were menaced by the grave position of the 3,500,000 Polish Jews.
