About 10,000 Jews are believed to have survived in Amsterdam, which had a Jewish population of over 75,000, the Dutch radio said today. In addition to 6,000 Jews who were not deported because they were married to non-Jews, several thousand have emerged from hiding since the city was liberated, the broadcast disclosed.
