Download PDF for this date

A new regulation has passed Parliament barring from the country aliens with the so-called “one-way papers” as passports. This will have the effect of halting immigration of Jews who have been deprived of their nationality.

Only 57 immigrants entered the Union of South Africa between Nov. 1, 1936 and Feb. 1, 1937, according to an announcement by Acting Interior Minister J.H. Hofmeyer, and after Feb. 1 the number of immigrants was even smaller.
