Some of the 60,000 Germans repatriated from Lithuania and Estonia have been discovered by the Reich authorities to have Jewish grandparents, the Daily Telegraph reported today.

About 40 of the repatriates, the newspaper said, have 50 percent Jewish blood, while more than 500 have 25 per cent. These, the Telegraph reported, have been “packed in trucks and sent to the Lublin Jewish ‘reservation'” in Nazi Poland.
