The arrest of a number of Zionists in Moscow recently is reported in a despatch received here from the Russian capital.
The report alleges that during the arrests the Ogpu, the Communist secret police, discovered the headquarters of a Zionist relief fund under the name, Keren Esra, and also a secret archive where material describing the suffering of arrested Zionists in Russia was collected. The material was to be used for a book concerning the persecutions against Zionism in Russia.
