This is the April 19, 1972 hearing titled "United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA)," held before the House Subcommittee on the Near East of the Committee on Foreign Affairs. From the opening statement of Lee H. Hamilton: "Today the Subcommittee on the Near East would like to review the activities of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA), and U.S. support of that organization. For over 20 years now, UNRWA has provided the basic relief services, education, and health services that have meant the difference between life and death for many refugees. A great deal has happened in the last two decades in the Middle East, but unfortunately very little has changed in the lives of this fragmented community of Palestinians, most of whom are refugees. [...] The United States, for its part, must redouble its efforts to insure that another generation of Palestinians does not grow up in refugee camps and to find ways and means to provide their lives with hope and dignity, their bodies with sustenance and strength and their vocations with purpose and skills." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: John A. Armitage and Laurence V. Michelmore.
