The 100 members of “Kibbutz Nili,” the training farm for Jewish young men and women established on the former estate of Julius Streicher, today celebrated their six-month anniversary with a party attended by all members and a large number of guests among whom were many Americans.

Kibbutz leaders recounted the early experiences of members of the group who struggled from ghettoes and concentration camps to displaced persons camps and then to the farm, where they began training for a new life in Palestine. One of the speakers announced that 20 men and women from the farm have just arrived in Palestine. He also disclosed plans for increasing the number of trainees at the kibbutz to 250 within a short time.
