Many of the Jews who have found refuge7 in England from contemporary foreign persecution are converts to the Catholic Church.

Examples of the distress of these convert Jews were given on Monday at the annual meeting of the Catholic Guild of Israel.

Fr. John Wolfs, N.D.S., read the annual report, which said the increase of anti-Semitic persecution in several countries in the past year demonstrated the opportuneness and even urgency of the Catholic Guild of Israel.

 " It must be urged that co-operation with the Catholic Council for International Relations, on the part if influential Catholics, is a great need in the present crisis, when many Jewish converts to the Catholic Church are taking refuge in this country from persecution," stated the report.

Mr. Philip Fowke, hon. secretary of the C.C.I.R., said the convert Jews driven from Germany included a chief editor of a prominent newspaper, a lady professor and a great number of qualified physicians.
