Franklin Delano Roosevelt Administration: Statement on Refugees in Palestine

(November 23, 1938)

It is reported here that the number of refugees to be permitted entry into Palestine will be materially increased, and in particular that many children and young people will be given refuge there. I have no means of knowing the accuracy of this report but I hope that it is true.
