Download PDF for this date

Boats carrying 450 Jewish refugees landed today at the Reading Power Station, north of the mouth of the Yarkon River. The passengers were immediately taken to the Sarafend concentration camps.

The refugees, including 75 women and children, had been transferred from the Bulgarian steamship Rudnicza to the small boats on the high seas after a two-week voyage from Bulgaria.
