Australia Lifts Employment Bam for Jewish Refugees; May Work in War Plants

Download PDF for this date

Jewish refugees in Australia will be enabled to seek employment in many war industries hitherto barred to them as a result of a decision by the Commonwealth Government made public today.

The ruling gives special status to aliens who are political or religious refugees, placing them in virtually the same category as nationals of neutral nations. Guarantees by Jewish authorities concerning the trustworthiness of the refugees will be acceptable by the government.
