100,000 Staatenlose in Czech-slovakia Says Estimate Including over 10,000 Jews: Parliament Expected

There are more than 100,000 people in the provinces of Slovakia and Carpatho-Russia who have no citizenship, the J.T.A. representative here is informed by a reliable source. On the basis of the proportion of Jews among the total population, this means that there are between 10,000 and 15,000 Staatenlose Jews in Slovakia and Carpatho-Russia.

The Autumn session of Parliament will, according to an announcement of the Ministry of the Interior, be asked to consider new methods of regulating the conferment of citizenship, which it is understood will give certain facilities to Staatenlose to acquire citizenship more easily than hitherto.
