Many Refugees Reach Belgium from Germany

Download PDF for this date

Dozens of Jewish families arrived in Belgium this week. Among the refugees is a Schochet of Dusseldorf, by the name of Dolinger, a Polish citizen. He relates that last Friday night Nazi’s broke into his house, at the point of a revolver, and warned him to leave the country immediately. The Nazi threats, he tells, were repeated on Saturday. He communicated with the police, but he was informed by them that they could offer him neither protection nor any guarantee for his safety. He thereupon decided to escape into Belgium.
