May 26, 1955
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

President Juan Peron, accompanied by aides and Maj. Carlos Aloe, Governor of Buenos Aires Province, visited today a textile mill here owned by Levin Brothers, a prominent Jewish family. After touring the plant and speaking with representatives of the 3,000 workers in the mill, the President declared: “Jewish we had many Levins.”

The Levin family long active in Zionist, welfare and Jewish cultural affairs, took over the mill several years ago when it was in danger of going out of business. The plant is now equipped with some of the most modern machinery in the industry.
