As a result of emigration in recent months, the Jewish population of Stettin, former German port city which is now part of Poland, has shrunk from 25,000 to about 4,000, according to reports received here. In order to consolidate Jewish activities, the local Jewish committee has been liquidated and all activities concentrated in the district committee.

The Central Committee of Polish Jews, whose headquarters are located here, announced that it has contributed 500,000 zlotys to a fund being raised by the government to rebuild the sections of Poland obtained from Germany. The committee appealed to all Jews who are able to do so to make contributions to the fund.
