Refugee Kisses Ground As He Lands Here

Hermann Leopoldi, Viennese Jewish vaudeville comedian and musician, was photographed today by newspaper photographers kissing the ground as he arrived here on the United States liner City of Baltimore. The famous comic had been held for nine months in the Dachau and Buchenwald concentration camps, where he sang songs of his own composition to keep up the morale of the prisoners.
