65 years ago: On September 1, 1941, The Palestine Post noted the second anniversary of the German invasion of Poland with a series of articles marking the beginning of the third year of World War II. Throughout Palestine, solidarity meetings were held at which Polish Jews and refugees, many of whom were soldiers serving with the Free Polish army, met and expressed faith in an Allied victory and rebirth of a new and democratic Polish state. Britain and the the Soviet Union completed their task of the total occupation of Iran. Britain announced that Iran's million tons a day oil production was unaffected and that the Allied occupation facilitated the task of transporting aid to the Soviet Union. Iran was allowed to keep a small standing army and police. On the Ukrainian front, German invaders were reported to have been stopped at the Dnieper River crossing. 25 years ago: On September 1, 1981, The Jerusalem Post reported that Austrian Prime Minister Bruno Kreisky announced he did not plan to reconsider his support for the PLO, despite the fact that Palestinian terrorists carried out an attack, on the Sabbath, on the Vienna synagogue, killing two and wounding 20. US Secretary of State Alexander Haig announced his wish to attend the opening of the Palestinian autonomy talks, scheduled according to a joint Israeli-Egyptian agreement, on September 23. The Finance Ministry announced that the new 1981-1982 national budget would cut each ministry's allotment by three to five percent. The Hebrew University and the Israeli Exploration Society rejected the appeal made by Education Minister Zevulun Hammer to suspend archaeological excavations of area G in Jerusalem's City of David until September 15, when the binding opinion of the Attorney General would be published. - Alexander Zvielli
