Russia Repatriates 3,000 Czechoslovak Jews Liberated from Gestapo Camp in Poland

A transport of 3,000 Czechoslovakian Jewish survivors from the notorious Oswiecim camp arrived yesterday in the liberated Czechoslovakian town of Kosice, it was reported here today. They travelled on Soviet trains.

Transports of Rumanian Jews repatriated by the Soviet authorities from Transnistria to Rumania are arriving daily via Jassy and Galatza. They are being met by representatives of local Jewish communities and are provided with food secured with funds sent by the Joint Distribution Committee.

The Rumanian Ministry of Agriculture today issued an order requesting all Jews in Bucharest possessing picks, spades, axes, shovels and other implements which they used for “national labor” to deposit them with the district police stations for distribution among Rumanian peasants.
