Internment of Thousands of Jewish Refugees by Japan Reported in Nazi Broadcast

The Nazi-controlled radio station in Norway today reported that “ninety percent of all of the 15,000 refugees from Europe who arrived in Shanghai since 1934, have been interned by the Japanese authorities.”

The refugees, the majority of whom are Jews, have been confined in a special area in the Yangtze basin, the Nazi broadcast said.
