Of all of ihem, 70 per cent live in the war swept countries. Fully 6,000,000 Jews Jn Poland. Czechoslovaekia. former Austria-Hungary, Russia. Lithuania, Si beria, Palestine, the Balkans and the Orient are today totally dependent upon outside aid for life's necessities. As an example of tlie sufferings in some parts of Europe, the story of some of the hardships undergone by ibe people of the River Bug, in Poland, will suffice. Little has been heard of ibis vast territory since the war start ed. The river's eastern shore bounds on one side the hungriest and most stricken territory in the world today. Five Million Near Starvation. Five million people are at the point of starvation, according to figures giv en out by the American Jewish Relief Ci.irmittee and compiled by the Ameri can Red Cross and the American Jew ish Relief agents. A great number of them arc Jews. The war has left Oii'iO.ooO destitute and stricken Jews in Eastern Europe, a number as great as the entire population of New York City, utterly helpless, in many cases sick, and in every case hungry and de pendent. East of the River Bug these people are living in devastated houses, in stalls of old stables, on roofless plat fomis built for refugee families, one family to a platform; in old freight cars, in holes in the ground or under the open sky. They are weak from many months of semi-starvation, for they have gone five years without one srpiare meal. They are still terror s' I'ickm from the war. Their number is being reduced every day by a se ries of the most terrible epidemics that ever swept any section of the v i' t*! d. Typhus, cholera and smallpox are all raging in the territory east of the Riv er Bug. The first and most general of these epidemics is carried simply by body lice. At least one member of every fifth or sixth family is stricken with sonic form of it, as is inevitable among people clad in five-year-old rags, people who have riot had a bath with s. up or a change of clothing since the begin o'rig <>f rhe war. No estimate of the actual numbers of those smitten wi I, r\[dins in Poland has as yet been comp'led, but it is probably greatei than in Siberia, where the American Ited Cross found 100.000 cases. If all the people in the territory east of the Bug Itiver could he fed properly at once, disease would soon disappear, doctors in the afflicted region say. If they could replace the rags which they have worn since the beginning of the war with fresh clothing, the epi demics would cease to spread. If their living places could be made hab itable and clean, it would no longer be as it is today, the most desolnte ex panse of land in the world. It is to ward this end that the two great or ganizations, one of Gentiles and the other of Jews, are working hand in hand, differences of cived forgotten in the great practical need they face. Two Organizations at Work. The Bed Cross personnel has been trebled in the Inst few weeks In this district. American Jewish Belief Agencies are feeding hundreds of chil dren there. In the desolate little towns in this lost and forlorn land their workers are constantly coining on chil dren in school who have had notldng to ear for two or three days, for the tradition of education for their chil dren. under no matter what condi tions. is one of the things that survive longest among the Jews.
