January 24, 1966
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

None of the Jews included in an album of 40 photographs of World War II heroes of the Soviet Union is identified as such, according to information received here today from Moscow. Each photograph carries some biographical data and, in most cases, the ethnic origin of the individual is included. But not a single Jew is identified as such.
