26 Jewish Refugees Allowed to Land in Argentina En Route to Chile, Colombia

Of the thirty-one refugees who were not permitted to land when the Portuguese steamer Nyassa docked here on Dec. 7, twenty departed today for Paraguay, six will leave for Colombia, three are detained in the Hotel des Immigrantes, Argentina’s Ellis Island and two are on their way back to Europe.

The two who are bound for Europe are Susenna Romero and her husband. The Jewish couple were not allowed to land because the wife had contracted trachoma. Among the group of six which is leaving tomorrow for Colombia is Bedru S. Borowitz, a Jewish Czechoslovakian shoe manufacturer who plans to establish a business in Bogota.
