Record of the statement made before the Peel Commission by Dr. Chaim Weizmann.

On November 25, 1936, Weizmann addressed the Peel Commission in a two and a half hours long speech. At the time Weizmann served as the President of both the Zionist Organisation and the Jewish Agency for Palestine.
In his speech Weizmann 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. This address was originally printed in The Times.
Years later, Lord Peel wrote that Weizmann's address to the commission was the one that left the deepest impression.

The Memorandum submitted to the Peel Commission on Behalf of the Jewish Agency for Palestine can be found in our stock under no. 106329.
