Download PDF for this date

Several hundred German and Czech refugees succeeded in making a clandestine departure from Denmark for Sweden on April 9 and 10, it was reported today by Andre Chastine, Copenhagen correspondent of Le Temps, who has returned to Paris. (There were an estimated 1,200 refugees and a normal Jewish population of 6,000 in Denmark before the German invasion.)

Chastine also said that some of the Gestapo agents who went into action after the Nazi occupation had been residing in Copenhagen since the outbreak of the war in September.
