Hias-ica Acts to Help 58 Reich Exiles Taken off Italian Liner by French

The HIAS-ICA Emigration Association in Paris is intervening in behalf of 58 Jewish refugees from Germany who were taken off the Italian liner Conte di Savoia at Algiers by French military authorities, while their wives and children were permitted to proceed to New York, where many of them are now lodged with the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society.

When the liner docked here on Sunday, it was disclosed today, HIAS cabled to the HIAS-ICA in Paris advising it of the circumstances. The HIAS-ICA replied: “We are doing what is necessary and will cable final results.” All the refugees have valid visas for the United States.
