Jews in Bergen-belsen Camp Treated Badly, British Correspondent Reports

Displaced Jews in the Bergen-Belsen camp, in the British zone in Germany, have been forbidden to display slegans calling for the opening of Palestine to Jews, a correspondent of the Sunday Observer reports, disclosing that such a sign was torn down from the offices of the camp’s Jewish committee.

He confirms that the Yiddish newspaper issued by the D.P’s has been banned, and must circulate underground, and that a hunger strike was called last Sunday to protest a reduction in rations. There are no Jews on the camp committee to deal with specific Jewish problems, the correspondent reveals.
