Reports of new restrictions on German Jews were confirmed today when German authorities along the French and Swiss frontiers detained Jewish passengers at frontier stations and confiscated their passports.

The officials explained that, starting Jan. 1, Jews are no longer permitted to leave Germany unless they are emigrating, except in special cases approved by the central authorities.
