Discrimination Against Jews Still Serious in Berlin; Jews Receive Small Rations

The London press today carries a report from Berlin stating that surviving German Jews are finding it difficult to obtain work in the American-held zone in Berlin because many in posts of authority to provide work are anti-Semitic followers of the Nazis.

Estimating that there are about 6,000 Jews in Berlin, the report says that the liberated German Jews have so far benefited little from the revocation of the Nazi anti-Jewish laws. Though the Jews have been undernourished and tortured under the Nazi regime, they are classified as Germans and not as “victim of Nazism,” and are treated as Germans and not as displaced persons who are able to obtain better rations than the Germans, the report says.
