No Jews Among 2,000 Refugees Crossing Border

Download PDF for this date

Not one Jew was reported tonight to be among the 2,000 refugees who crossed the border from German Upper Silesia to Kattowice, Poland, en route to Rumania, it was reported. The exodus was believed inspired by fear of a new anti-Catholic drive following the violent tirade against Catholic priests yesterday by Gov. Helmut Brueckner of Silesia.
