Added details with regard to the renewed expulsion by Germany of Polish Jews reached here today. Advices from Berlin said 150 Jews of Hanover were taken from their beds during the night and shipped in two trains to the Polish border. Fifty of the group reached Neubentchen and were driven across the Polish-German frontier with hounds at their heels. One of the deportees, Israel Roman, 80, died and his body is still lying on the frontier. Fate of the remaining 100, who reached the frontier station Beuthen, is so far unknown. The victims include blind and aged men and women from institutions.
