Argentine Government Exempts German-jewish Refugees from Restrictions on Axis Nationals

The Argentine Government has agreed to exempt from most of the restrictions affecting Axis nationals, 35,000 German Jews living in this country, it was learned today. The decisions followed submission by the Daia, central Jewish organization, of a petition supported by many notables.

The extent to which the Jewish refugees will be released from the various restrictions is not yet known, but German Jews have already been excused from registering with the police, which is now required of all Axis citizens. Instead, they have been asked to register with one of the German Jewish organizations here.
