1,000 Viennese Jews Aided by Dutch Group in Entering Italy

The 1,000 Viennese Jews admitted to Italy pending re-emigration entered the country under a private scheme and not as the result of any agreement between the Rome and Berlin Governments, the Rome correspondent of The Times reported yesterday.

A Dutch organization headed by Mr. Van Gildemeester arranged for their emigration, providing them with sums ranging from L5 to L20 each, instead of the usual ten marks permitted for German emigrants. Their permits to reside in Italy are valid for periods ranging from one to three months, but can be extended in certain cases to six months, it was said.
