400 Jews Moved from Feldafing Camp to German Houses; More Evictions of Germans Planned

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

Acting on orders of Gen. Eisenhower, a first group of 400 displaced Jews are being removed from the Feldafing camp to private houses from which Germans have been evicted. At the same time, 600 Jews, mostly children, have been transferred from this camp to a center in Fahrenwald, fifteen miles away.

The total number of Jews in Feldafing camp has been reduced to 4,000, visiting correspondents were told today by Col. James H. Polk who is in command of the Feldafing area. He added that more Germans will be moved from their dwellings in this area in order to make room for additional Jews from the camp.
