About this Item

Original Wraps. 12mo. 16 pages. 20 cm. First edition. Holocaust-era Statement of Withdrawal of the AJC from the American Jewish Conference. A contemporary news report described the withdrawal as such: "The withdrawal of the American Jewish Committee from the American Jewish Conference was announced here last night following a full-day session of its executive committee attended by seventy-five leading representatives of Jewish communities throughout the country. The session was presided over by Jacob Blaustein, chairman of the General Committee. Protesting this decision, three Zionist members of the American Jewish Committee resigned and telegraphed other members urging them to do likewise. A statement on the position of the American Jewish Committee, presented by its president Joseph M. Proskauer, declared that 'the present demand for the eventual establishment of a Jewish Commonwealth in Palestine, made by the American Jewish Conference, and constituting one of its major decisions, as well as the subordination of other Jewish issues to the problem of the political structure of Palestine, are in such essential disagreement with the fundamental views of the American Jewish Committee that in the best interests of Jews in this and other countries, including Palestine, the Committee feels impelled to withdraw from the American Jewish Conference. ' The statement reaffirms the desire of the American Jewish Committee 'to utilize for the Jews of Europe the broadest opportunities which Palestine can offer. ' It assures that the Committee 'will apply its most diligent efforts to bring about the abrogation of the White Paper which closes the doors of Palestine to further Jewish immigration and restricts Jewish land purchase. ' At the same time it expresses the conviction that the problems of world Jewry cannot be solved by a single political panacea and that 'the salvation and rehabilitation of the stricken Jews of Europe cannot be achieved through Palestine alone and certainly not through overemphasis on the political constitution of Palestine. It can be achieved only by considering Palestine a part of the larger program which looks to the rehabilitation and resettlement of Jews throughout the world and the restoration of their equal rights.
