Russian Administration Ready to Repatriate All Surviving German Jews, Says Berlin Radio

Russian military authorities are preparing to repatriate all German Jews liberated from concentration camps in the parts of Europe now under the administration of the Red Army, the Berlin radio reported today. No emigration permits will be given the Jews, the broadcast said.

It revealed that 1,200 Jews who formerly resided in Berlin are among the 5,000 Jewish survivors still in Theresienstadt. The names of these people are available at a special repatriation office functioning in the building of the former hospital of the Berlin Jewish community on Iran Street, the broadcast announced, asking relatives and friends to report to this office whether they can offer homes to the survivors when they are repatriated.

“It is our duty to enable these victims of Fascism to return to their homes quickly. All families who are ready to help them, are asked to report immediately that they are prepared to receive them in their homes,” the broadcast said.
