Rebels Bar Jews from Canary Islands

Download PDF for this date

The Danish steamer Sava, out of Tenerife, Colombia, today debarked a number of Jewish refugees of Polish and German extraction at Casablanca after the refusal of the rebel authorities in the Canary Islands to permit disembarkation of Jews there.

The Sava then sailed to Melilla, Spanish Morocco, to take on other refugees.
