Jews Barred from Renting Rooms to Olympics Guests

Foreign guests attending the forth-coming Olympic games will be prevented from lodging in Jewish houses in Berlin, it became clear from an official order issued here today obligating those renting rooms during the games to hang out the German swastika flag.

Since by the new Nuremberg laws Jews are prohibited from displaying the Nazi flag, the order automatically excludes Jews from renting rooms.

It is officially estimated that 100,000 foreigners will be quartered in private houses during the games, mostly in the West End, where the population is largely Jewish.
