Swiss Government Asked to Give “toleration Period” to Refugees Before Repatriation

The Swiss Government was asked today to allow a toleration period” for Jewish refugees who are eventually to be repatriated from Switzerland to their countries of origin.

The request was voiced at a conference arranged by the International Committee of Refugee Professional Workers at which the question of repatriation of refugees was discussed, as well as that of providing them with proper identity documents. It was pointed out that a “toleration period” will enable the refugees to prepare themselves technically and professionally so that they may be able to reestablish themselves in their native lands without much difficulty.
