Greatest Since Destruction Of Temple In Jerusalem HIGHEST WAR TOLL IN LIVES Rec. 10 a.m. LONDON, Aug. 1. Dr. Chaim Weizmann, president of the World Zionist Organisation, opening the World Zionist Conference, said: "Our reunion occurs under the shadow of the greatest Jewish catastrophe since the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem. The great and powerful European Jewry of 10 or 15 years ago is no more. We are now a broken remnant. We have paid the highest toll in lives of any people in this war." Dr. Weizmann declared that a new Palestinian emigration policy was imperative otherwise the position of Jewry would become unbearable. He demanded 100,000 emigration permits immediately as a first instalment of the post-war emigration programme. Eighty delegates from more than a dozen countries are attending the conference, which is the first held since 1939.
