See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Polish Jews who want to leave for Israel are having no difficulty in obtaining the necessary documents, a party of Polish immigrants who arrived here today said. They reported that from now on the number of Polish Jews arriving in Israel would increase steadily.

They further reported that Polish Jews were visiting the Israel legation freely and without fear, unlike some years back when Polish nationals were arrested after leaving the legation. The party of immigrants, who came on the S.S. Jerusalem, included Jews from Hungary, USSR, Czechoslovakia and Rumania.
