Jewish Children from Nazi-occupied Countries Excluded from Swiss Welfare Plan

No Jewish children will be included among the 10,000 starving boys and girls whom Switzerland is ready to admit from Nazi-occupied countries for short vacations, it was learned here today.

The exclusion of Jewish children from the vacation scheme is due to the inability to secure return visas for them since such permits are not issued to Jews in occupied countries, Swiss officials explained.
