No Jewish Children Survive in Reich Capital

Download PDF for this date

There are no Jewish children to be found in Berlin, although a few thousand Jewish adults have survived, a correspondent of the Evening Standard reports today from the Reich capital.

Relating conversations he had with some of the survivors, the correspondent says that most of them told him that they owe their life to some exceptional piece of good fortune, such as an influential friend who either hid them or warned them to leave Berlin when a new wave of persecution was imminent.

The Jews are quoted as saying that their German neighbors are now “very kind,” visiting them often, “sharing their fires” and greeting them affectionately.
