March 26, 1946
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The Board of Deputies of British Jews at a meeting last night discussed at great length the growth of anti-Semitism in Britain and measures to combat it.

Some of the speakers pointed out that the only remedy for anti-Semitism is a strong Palestine. They urged that mass meetings be arranged to enlighten British public opinion on the situation of the Jews who have been deported from Palestine to camps in Eritrea.

Anxiety was expressed concerning reports that the camps for displaced persons in the British and American zones in Germany are to be liquidated. The Foreign Committee of the Board was instructed to make a careful study of how this may affect displaced Jews.
