Says League Must Find Refuge for Jews

Download PDF for this date

The political and economic conditions in Eastern Europe are such as to compel East-European Jews to immigrate to Germany, and it is impossible to prevent this immigration, Minister of the Interior Severing of Prussia declared in a memorandum he submitted to the German Minister of Foreign Affairs concerning East-European migration. Herr Severing declares the Jewish question has assumed international proportions, a fact which has been confirmed in the Palestine Mandate. The League of Nations must accordingly regulate this question, and find new roads if this migration is to be diverted from Central Europe.
