German Spies Reported Posing As Refugees in Holland

Download PDF for this date

German spies posing as Jewish refugee have been discovered in the Netherlands, it was reported here tonight. Carrying passports stamped with the letter “J”, which German authorities inscribe on all passports issued to Jews, these secret agents were believed to have gained entry to a number of neutral countries. Those discovered here were “Aryans.”

As apparent refugees they can more easily pass from one country to another, it was said, and enjoy the sympathy accorded in many quarters to victims of Nazism.
