The added gifts of Mr. Straus awl
his sons Mr. David A. Brown declared,
constituted one of the most inspiring
scenes he has ever witnessed in hu
experience in philanthropic work.
“The beloved philanthropist seemed
to have aged ten years since the new<
of the slaughter of the Jews in Pales
tine. It must be borne in mind that
Mr. Straus has consecrated himself
to the Jewish development of Pales
tine and the establishment of friendly
relations there between the Jews and
the Arabs. He has given up many
luxuries, cut dearly into his capital
and reduced his personal living ex
penses to a minimum in order that
he might be able to give generously
to Palestine in addition to giving to
so many other humanitarian causes.’
“One of his first great benefaction?
to Palestine occurred shortly after
the outbreak of the World War, when
he sold his private yacht in order U
obtain funds to shelter, clothe and
feed Jewish orphans in that country.
Later Mr. Straus disposed of his fa
mous trotting-stable and turned the
proceeds over to Palestine Welfare
stations. This was followed by the
sale of his green houses, so that be
could give more money to Palestine.
And Mrs. Nathan Straus gave her
jewels to Hadassah to be sold for the
benefit of the medical work of that
organization in Palestine.”
