Belgium Releases Jewish Refugees

Download PDF for this date

A number of German Jewish refugees, arrested here in the last few days, despite the fact that they had residential permits from the Ministry of Justice, were released today as a result of the intervention of the Belgian Jewish relief committee.

The Belgian government is continuing to deport even those German Jewish refugees who have funds and have made no effort to obtain jobs.
