Further reports from Nazi-held Denmark received here today indicate that the ewish population there is nervous as a result of intensified anti-ewish Nazi activities and fear that they will be deported as were the Jews in Nazi-occupied Norway. The reports emphasizo that the Danish Government is definitely opposed to any attempt by the Nazis to deport the Jews from Denmark.

Swedish opinion united during the week-end in expressing indignation at anti-Jewish measures taken by the Quisling and German occupying authorities of Norway. Various groups have taken steps to aid those who have been persecuted. The voice of Sweden was raised in protest from the pulpit, in the press and at public meetings. Gothenburg University students adopted a resolution of “indignation at the inhuman treatment of Jews in Norway, “and urged Swedish authorities to give “all possible aid to Jews who have, or may yet, escape from Norway to Sweden.” Other organizations took similar action.
