Description Information
   [2] pp., 252:178 mm., light age staining, typed letter on Suhnut stationary, signed in ink by Ben Gurion.
   Addressed to the Chief Rabbis of Erez Israel the writer promises to deliver the Polish, Holocaust surviving, children, saved by the Suhnut via Tehran, to their families under certain conditions. The children were initially deposited in anti-religious kibbutzim were they were educated and indoctrinated with anti religious views. Needless to say Ben Gurion did not deliver the children, as promised, they remained in the kibbutzim where all religious identity was wiped clean. Several booklets condemning the Zionists were published in Israel and America on the affair.
