Quotation from Yitzhak Gruenbaum “NO! and I say again, NO! Not one cow here for ten thousand Jews in Germany” — Feb. 18 1943

Chairman of the Rescue Committee of the Jewish Agency, in an address to the Zionist Executive Council.

Author : Thematics :
" When they asked me, as chairperson of the Jewish Agency's Rescue Committee, couldn't you give money out of the United Jewish Appeal funds for the rescue of Jews in Europe, I said, 'NO!' and I say again, 'NO!' Not one cow here for ten thousand Jews in Germany. One should bravely resist this wave which pushes the Zionist activities to secondary importance. "
