The first Zionist conference to be held in Bulgaria since this country was freed from German domination convened here today. Greetings are read from the Jewish Agency in Jerusalem.
Coinciding with the opening of the conference, the first issue of a Zionist newspaper “Bamah Zenith” appeared. Prominently featured were Prime Minister Churchill’s announcement that the Jewish Brigade would be part of the Allied forces occupying Germany, and the Agency’s message to the meeting. All articles were in the Bulgarian language, since the paper does not have Hebrew type.
Meanwhile, the Palestine Office here informed the Jewish Telegraphic Agency Correspondent that Jews who are not eligible for military service will be allowed to migrate to Palestine if they so desire. No limitations will be placed on the number that will be permitted to leave the country.
The Archive of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency includes articles published from 1923 to 2008. Archive stories reflect the journalistic standards and practices of the time they were published.
