Document/Artifact of Item-Level 4: RG-74.04, From the New York Post,  4,000,000 Jews are still alive in Europe, 26 February 1943Add to your cart.View associated digital content.
The article in the New York Post appeals to take into safety the 4, 00,000 Jews who are regarded to be still alive in Europe. This number is overestimated. However, in February of 1943, the Hungarian and Romanian Jews were still alive and also not all the Jews from Western Europe had been deported to the death camps. The article suggests that upon the negotiations, the Axis powers could allow the Jews to leave Hungary, Romania and Western Europe in to exile. To implement this plan a special commission of the Allied and United Nations has to be created. It will take up the negotiations with the Axis power in order to evacuate the Jews in to safety. Published in the New York Pose on February 26, 1943.
