Internees in Italian Camp Plead for Aid in Entry to U.S.

Download PDF for this date

German and Polish Jews interned in the concentration camp at Lama del Peligni have sent an appeal, through the JTA correspondent, to their relatives and friends in the United States asking them to provide them with affidavits and fare enabling them to enter the United States under the immigration quota.

The appeal points out that many of the interned Jews have long been registered with American consulates in Italy for quota visas, and that the Italian authorities have agreed to release them if they have visas for overseas lands.
