Sweden Will Admit Unlimited Number of Jewish Refugee Children from Nazi Lands

The Swedish Government today announced its readiness to admit an unlimited number of Jewish refugee children from German-held countries.

In making this announcement, the Foreign Office here emphasized that instructions will be issued to border officials to demand no passports or visas from Jewish refugee children reaching the Swedish frontiers and to admit them without any restriction.

Reports reaching Sweden from Hungary indicate that the situation of the Jews in Budapest, who are said to be the only surviving Jews in the country, is worsening daily. The reports declare that almost all Jews from provincial towns have been deported and that the deportation of Jews from Budapest, started during the last few days, is continuing.
