See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The national conference of Hebrew writers ended its first session here with a resolution urging writers and poets the world over to raise their voices and use their pens to fight anti-Semitism wherever it may arise, in whatever form.

The writers urged their colleagues abroad to support the security of Israel and back efforts for peace in the Middle East and an understanding between Jews and Arabs. The conference also discussed the confrontation between the old and the new generation of writers. The second session will open in Tel Aviv next month.
