Request of Ukrainian emigrants to send them to Argentina due to the material hardship, 1938

The letter is stored in the documents of the Emigration Office, Department in Równe

Ukrainians who went to Argentina could wait a long time to be sent by ship from Poland.
Here is a letter from the head of the family asking to send them to Argentina as soon as possible, as they only have money left for travel and cannot spend it on living. The letter is dated April 14, 1938.
The road to Argentina was not a cheap affair. As a rule, to buy a ticket for such a trip, people sold all their property, not knowing what awaits them there in Argentina.
The document is stored in the materials of the Rivne emigration syndicate in the archives of the city of Rivne.
