Notes
1 sheet folded in half and printed on each side to make a 4-page pamphlet. The cover has the publisher's name on top, title and author in a rectangle of white. It is surrounded by two different tones of grey. On each side of the title rectangle there are 5 coats of arms representing the 9 provinces and Yukon (Newfoundland was not yet a province). The other three pages contain text that exhorts Canadians to write their M.P.s and demand that more refugees from the Nazis, including Jews, be welcomed to Canada. It emphasizes the abundance of space available in Canada and the important contributions of refugees that have already come. There is a card stapled to the cover that identifies CJC, United Jewish Refugee and War Relief Agencies as distributor of the pamphlet.
