Czechoslovakia Bars Entry of Danube Tugboat Refugees

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

The Czechoslovakian Government has declined the request of a group of members of the French Parliament to admit into the country a group of fifteen Austrian Jews now lodged on a French Tugboat in the Danube after being set adrift on a breakwater by the Nazis. The Government said that the Cabinet had previously decided not to grant permission for “reasons of principle.”
