Several hundred internees from German concentration camps, including Dutch and Hungarian Jews who are holders of Latin American passports, reached Switzerland during the week-end, it was reported here today by the Agudas Israel organization.

(Estimating that there are still 600,000 Jews left in German-held territories, the World Jewish Congress today telegraphed an appeal to president Roosevelt, Prime Minister Churchill, Marshal Josef Stalin and Gen. De Gaulle, asking them to discuss the speedy rescue of Jews from Nazi lands and to use every feasible means to that end, in order to prevent “wholesale murder” of the Jewish survivors.)
