See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

A group of 110 Jewish children from Rumania, accompanied by 23 adults, arrived in Palestine today from Turkey. They reached Turkey by boat across the Black Sea.

These refugees, as well as the 272 who arrived during the week-end and several other groups which came here earlier, have been enabled to leave Rumania through the efforts of the American war Refugee Board and the cooperation of Turkish authorities.
