Second Group of Refugees Will Leave Oswego Shelter to Return to Yugoslavia

Between forty and fifty Yugoslav citizens, residents of the Fort Ontario Emergency Shelter at Oswego, will return to Yugoslavia on the “Gripsholm” when it sails from New York some time in August, the War Relocation Authority reported today. This comprises the second group of Yugoslavs at Oswego to return to their homeland. The first group of thirteen left on an earlier sailing of the Gripsholm several months ago. Transportation for those residents of Oswego who wish to be repatriated to their country of origin is arranged by UNRRA.
