200 Young Refugees Land in England

Download PDF for this date

Two hundred Jewish boy and girl refugees from Germany landed at Harwich today from the British steamer Prague. They were the first contingent of 5,000 German-Jewish children to be trained in England for future work in overseas countries. Many of the group were from an orphanage near Berlin which was burned during the recent pogrom. Others came from the Hamburg region. Aged 10 to 12 years old, the children will stay in a temporary camp near Harwich until private homes have been found for them. Many offered to shelter them have already been received.

The Times reported from Aden this morning the arrival of the Italian steamer Biancamo, en route to the Far East with 300 German-Jewish refugees. Many of them, destitute, stopped off at Aden for a short period and appealed to the Jewish Community for help.
