Portugal Restricts Shipping of Food Parcels to Nazi-held Territories

Download PDF for this date

The last route for shipment of food parcels to relatives in Nazi occupied territories was closed today, when the Portuguese post office authorities announced that in the future shipments of food parcels outside of Portugal will be restricted to a small list of articles. The list excludes most of the staples which have hitherto been sent from here to various countries under German occupation.
