Threatened with Imprisonment

Download PDF for this date

A copy of the expulsion order used against Jewish families in Germany was obtained here today. This particular order, issued by Leipzig police head-quarters dated May 25, instructed the family concerned to leave by June 20, warning against their return on pain of a year’s imprisonment plus a fine. The document added that appeal against the order might be filed, without however affecting the deadline.
