Download PDF for this date

The British press today carries a report from Stockholm stating that 52 Danish Jewish children were deported to Germany last week from a Copenhagen freight station.

The children, the report says, ranged in age from 1 to 12 years. They had been interned in the Vester prison since the parents of most of them were deported in October. Persons who witnessed the departure of the children describe them as looking dirty and badly-dressed. They were taken from the prison in trucks.
