Download PDF for this date

The board of directors of the Jewish National Fund today decided to establish a settlement named after Brigadier Frederik H. Kisch, the former head of the political department of the Zionist Executive, who was killed in action in Tunisia.

The Jewish National Fund will also issue a stamp carrying the portrait of Brigadier Kisch. The Jewish Community Council of Haifa, where Kisch lived for many years prior to joining the British forces, has decided to bring his body there for final interment.
