A delegation of the Jewish Refugee Committee of Brussels has arrived in unoccupied France with the object of visiting camps where Belgian Jewish refugees are interned, distributing medical and other relief.

The delegation obtained authorization from the German authorities to cross Belgium and occupied France and to bring in 10 marks in cash relief for each refugee. The total number of these refugees is estimated at 3,500.
