Poland Grants Extension to 2000 Refugees

Download PDF for this date

About 2000 Jewish refugees ordered expelled by a recent ruling of the Minister of Interior have been granted leave to remain in Polish internment barracks until May 1. This number represents the remainder of the refugees who do not intend to emigrate over-seas. A United Jewish relief committee is making special arrangements for their departure at the expiration of the new term.

Certain of the refugees holding United States visas available when the new immigration quota opens have had their right of residence prolonged to September 1.
