The havoc wrought among the Jews of the Ukraine by the epidemics
that have followed in the wake of the war and pogroms is described in a
report to the London Federation of Ukrainian Jews from the 0. Z. E.,
the Society for the Safeguard of the Health of the Jews in Russia. "The
Jewish population in the towns is dying out." says this report. "In Berson
mere than half of the entire Jewish population (15,000 people) died in
the course of the last two years. In Odessa 2,716 Jews died during January
and February, 1922, while the number of girths during the same period
was only 147. In Elizavetgrad 3,000 persons died and 300 were born dur-
ing the first 10 months of 1922. In Nitolaev the Jewish population dimin-
ished in the course of one year. It is estimated that the average number
of school children suffering from various forms of tuberculosis constitutes
26 per cent of the total number of Jewish children in the Ukraine. The ;
statistics of children infested with other diseases are distressingly grue-,
