Netherlands Shifts Interned Refugees

Download PDF for this date

The refugee camp located at Hook-of-Holland will be converted in the coming week into an internment camp and the refugees will be gradually transferred to the Westerbrook camp at Drente, which is on the German frontier, and to Sluis in Zeeland-Flanders. Most of the refugees now in the Hook camp are German Jews who entered the country illegally.
