6,000 Jews in Berlin, Polish and Hungarian Jews in German Camps Appeal for Aid

Swiss newspapers today carry a report from Berlin that about 6,000 Jews are in the Reich capital and more are returning. The report is attributed to the Russian-appointed Berlin mayor, Arthur Werner, a 68-year-old German educator.

Reports reaching here today from Germany reveal that 1,800 Polish and Hungarian Jews are at present in a camp near Garmisch-Partenkirchen, living under “very difficult conditions,” lacking food, clothing and medicine.

Other reports state that 203 Polish Jews from the Dachau concentration camp are living under similar conditions in a camp near Bachberg. Similar reports have reached Jewish organizations here concerning the situation of liberated Jewish interests in various camps in Germany located near the Swiss frontier. All these survivors are in urgent need of food and clothing.
