October 7, 1938 Conference on Status of Palestine at Colonial Office

Peel CommissionWith the fate of Czechoslovakia fresh in their minds Zionist circles in London tonight were fearful that the Jews of Palestine would next be “sold down the river” in fulfillment of the British policy of seeking peace with the Nazis. An important conference which may decide the future status of Palestine proceeded all day long today at the Colonial Office.
