Various governments-in-exile located in London have undertaken a number of measures to rescue Jewish children from their homelands in occupied Europe, it was reported here today by Arieh Tartakower, a member of the executive committee of the World Jewish Congress and of the Representation of Polish Jewry, who recently returned from England.

The Government-in-Exile are also working on projects dealing with reuniting Jewish families who have been separated by the Nazis during the occupation through deportations, Mr. Tartakower reported. The Polish Government has agreed to establish a special office to deal with relief for Jews in Poland under the direction of a Jewish official. The Netherlands Government in London has also undertaken to aid Dutch Jews exiled to Poland. The Free French have despatched, through underground channels, three Jewish representatives to arrange the rescue of Jews.
