Overseas Relief Needs in Light of United Nations Decision on Palestine
By Nathan Reich
This paper explores overseas relief following the recent decision of the United Nations concerning the founding of the State of Israel. The author asserts that the effect of emigration on relief needs depends on the age and character of the people involved. The piece questions whether the emphasis should be on the emigration of children considering the prospect that the alleviation of relief needs will be more than proportionate to their numbers since the amount spent for child care in various countries is, on the average, probably greater than the general per capita average. The principal alleviation that the establishment of the State of Israel will offer is the possibility of the gradual transfer of Jewish immigrants to Palestine. The paper concludes by asserting that the establishment of Israel will not reduce the scope of relief needs but it will introduce clarity, purposefulness and direction in the operation of relief programs.
