Expulsion of Prg-communists from Argentine Jewish Body Approved

December 24, 1952
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

A full meeting of the general assembly of the DAIA, central representative body of Argentine Jewry, last night ratified the decision of its executive ordering the expulsion of any organization affiliated with the DAIA which did not within ten days associate itself with a DAIA resolution condemning the Prague trial.

The general assembly session was very heated and various charges and counter-charges were hurled. Dr. Ricardo Dubrowsky, president of the DAIA, rejected the accusation of pro-Communist representatives that the DAIA was acting as a “Yankee imperialist espionage agency” in Argentina. The Jewish daily, Die Yiddishe Zeitung, editorially applauded the DAIA action, demanding that all groups “sate under what flag” they were sailing.
