Refugee Camp Planned in Czecho-slovakia

Download PDF for this date

The Jewish Community of Moravska-Ostrava is establishing a refugee camp to take care of the increasing number of Jews being driven between the various frontiers since provisions of the Czech treaties with Germany, Hungary and Poland with regard to citizenship option are not being applied to Jews. The Brno Society for the Maintenance of Voluntary Ambulance Service has asked Jewish members to resign and has replaced Jewish executives and doctors with Germans.
