The Jewish Telegraphic Agency will be glad to answer inquiries for further information about any of the news items contained in this Bulletin.

More than thousand Jews were victims of the explosion in Warsaw last Saturday, according to latest estimates. The bodies of many victims were so horribly disfigured, as to make it impossible to identify them. All Warsaw Jewry is bending its energies to relieve the surviving victims and the families of those bereaved by the accident.

The Joint Distribution Committee has appropriated 150 million marks for the relief work.
