The open and secret activities of international relief agencies based in Switzerland during the war were lauded today by Sir Herbert person, League of Nation’s High Commissioner for Refugees, reporting to the General Committee of the League, which will go out of existence this week. He said that these groups had greatly aided persons in occupied countries.

Dr. Rafaele Cantoni, president of the Federation of Jewish Communities of Italy, sent a message this week to the Swiss Government expressing “profound gratitude” to the Swiss people for the welcome they extended during the war to exiled Italian Jews. The Jews were thus saved from certain death, Dr. Cantoni said.
