Illegal Refugees in Holland Returned to Reich

Download PDF for this date

All refugees who escaped illegally from Germany into the Netherlands have been shipped back to the Reich by the Nazis, a correspondent of The Times who was recently in Holland reported today.

The writer said he had no clue as to what befell these refugees. Other German refugees, apart from being compelled to report to the police daily, are more or less ignored in the Netherlands, he added.

No large scale repressive action apparently has been taken against left-wing sympathizers or Jews, of whom there are large numbers in Holland, the correspondent said. Concentration camps have been reserved principally for Roman Catholics, especially Catholic university professors
