A mass pilgrimage to the grave of Theodor Herzl, whose Judenstast, published in 1896, was the first exposition of the Zionist demand for a Jewish State in Palestine, will take place this Sunday as part of the week-long celebration here to mark the setting up of a Jewish State.

Religious services, concerts and religious services have been held in all camps and other Jewish installations during the past few days. Bronislaw Teicholtz, president of the Committee of Transient Jews, addressing one meeting, revealed that since June 1945 more than 140,000 Jewish refugees had passed through Vienna bound westward.
