Download PDF for this date

Twenty-two of a large group of Jewish refugees who have been housed on a tug in the Danube because no country would admit them will leave for Palestine on Monday, it was announced here today. The refugees, all of whom are from the Burgenland province of Austria, will arrive in the holy land Sep. 26, the first day of Rosh Hashonah. The Hungarian authorities, in the meantime, permitted the remainder of the group to land on condition they return to the tug every night.
