Jewish Refugees in Finland Fail to Move to Sweden with American Diplomats

Only two Jews accompanied the American diplomatic party which has arrived here from Finland following the rupture of relations with the United States, Stockholm newspapers disclose.

It had been expected that 60 Jewish refugees, the only non-Finnish Jews still residing in Finland, were to come here with the Americans. Officials of the American legation said that poor coordination by the Jewish groups, themselves, was to blame for the failure of most of the refugees to leave, since they had been granted Swedish entry visas and Finnish exit visas.
