Authoritative sources today vigorously denied there was any foundation for a report published in today’s Daily Herald to the effect that a representative of the German Government recently conferred with Jewish leaders here and helped draw up a tentative plan for mass exodus of German Jews.

According to these sources, there is no basis to the reports that the Jewish leaders entered into an agreement with the German Government involving the export of German goods.

” Jewish leaders and the Jewish Community,” it was stated, “have not made, have not considered and would not consider any arrangement such as suggested, that emigrants’ capital can only be gotten out in German goods which would be sold abroad for the purpose of breaking the anti-Nazi boycott. That you can take as being absolutely definite.”

The same sources declared that the statement issued in New York by the executive committee of the Zionist Organization of America was “perfectly true.”
