Download PDF for this date

The British Government, as well as the French and United States Governments, have sent official protests to the German Government against the application to their Jewish nationals of Field Marshal Hermann Goering’s decree for registration of Jewish property, the Jewish Telegraphic Agency was officially informed today.

The British Government inquired, through its Ambassador in Berlin, Sir Nevile Henderson, as to the real meaning of the decree, but received no reply. Similarly, three further inquiries by the British Government went without answer.

Meanwhile, it was learned that the British Government has not yet named its delegate to the refugee-aid conference called by President Roosevelt, opening in Evian, France, on July 6, but some of the technical staff has already been selected.

The Council of The League of Nations Union today adopted a resolution welcoming the United States proposal for international action to facilitate migration of political refugees from Germany and Austria. The resolution also expressed the hope that the Evian conference would “put an end to the deplorable practice of closing frontiers to those unfortunate victims of tyranny and expelling them from one country after another and will result in satisfactory schemes for their permanent settlement.”
