Memorandum submitted to the Peel Commission by the Jewish Agency for Palestine, with Introductory Note by Dr. Chaim Weizmann, future First President of The State of Israel.

The Jewish Agency for Palestine was founded by Weizmann in 1929 in order to manage effectively the Jewish population affairs in Palestine and to unite them all in the mission of building a national home for all the Jews at the Land of Israel. On November 25, 1936, Weizmann addressed the Peel Comission in a two and a half hours long speech. He described the hardships of the Jewish population in Europe, sawing the east to the Rhein river the world divided to places where the Jews can't live and places where Jew's aren't allowed to enter. He talked about the lack of Homeland for the Jewish people and about their longing to the Land of Israel, their original Homeland, which they have never forgot and never gave up on. He demanded the millions of persecuted Jews of Europe to be given a refuge.
Years later, Lord Peel wrote that Weizmann's address to the commission was the one that left the deepest impression.

The full text of Weizmann's statement to the commission was published, titled The Jewish People and Palestine. A copy of its second edition can be found in our stock, under no. 106334.
