Luxembourg Stops Registration of Exiles

Download PDF for this date

The government of the Duchy of Luxembourg today issued an internal order to the police not to

register any more refugees from Germany, especially the Saar.

Officially the Duchy has not renounced the right of asylum and no order to prohibit admission of refugees has been issued. However, refugees are being informed by the police that it is no longer possible to obtain identification cards.

The Duchy has in the past been friendly to German refugees. Recently a special postage stamp issue was placed on sale, proceeds of which are being used to aid professionals in exile from Germany.
