Jews Warned Not to Send Food to Relatives in Reich

Download PDF for this date

Warning to Jews in America not to send food packages to their relatives in the Reich and in Nazi-dominated countries is given in an article this week in Aufbau, organ of German-Jewish refugees, published in New York.

“The entire question of whether to send food packages to relatives in Germany can be properly understood only when one realize that the appeals for food relief are in most cases made by order of the Gestapo and under its dictation,” the paper says.
