Italy Will Deport Interned Czechoslovak Jews to Nazi-held Poland

More than 500 Jewish refugees from Czechoslovakia now interned in Italy are threatened with deportation to Nazi-held Poland, the Board of Deputies of British Jews learned today. The majority of the internees are women and children.

Archbishop Godfrey, Apostolic Delegate in London, today informed the Agudas Israel organization that he is in constant communication with the Holy See regarding the sufferings of the Jews in Europe. “I am assured that the Pope is always active in their behalf in every way open to him,” the Archbishop’s message stated.
